User Review: MSR E-Bivy
Price Paid: $50
LIGHT and Water TIGHT. Minimalist without a doubt. For use with: no bugs. no heavy rain. Starry nights. Mild to moderate temps. A sleeping pad?
Picked this up for a great deal, $50. Used it in the Tetons and Bechler River area of Yellowstone for multiple nights. There is no screen nor pole. It is a trash bag to keep out the critters, wind, and mild rain.
Its tag recommends use: in a tent, or by itself.
In in tent? YES, Super cold night on the road, freak storm... tent is up, bag is not doing it, threw this on and made the difference. However, I will not be carrying this AND a tent in the backcountry unless there is a special reason for it...
Great sack for the alpine.
