The North Face Simple Bivy

When it’s just you and the trail, keep it minimal with this Simple Bivy that features a clamshell entrance and enough extra storage space for a small day pack. The zippered 20-denier polyester no-see-um mesh face panel keeps insects at bay. The canopy body is 50-denier polyester ripstop, while the floor is 50-denier nylon with a 3,000 mm polyurethane coating to keep you dry even when the turf isn’t. It’s so compressible; it’ll even stuff into a Nalgene bottle.

  • Mesh panel for bug protection
