Since I am the third wheel on this next trip to Mt Baker I'm going to leave my tent at home, break my own rule (never use a bivy bag) and I'll be using a bivy bag there for the first time in my life.
The North Face Assault Bivy Bag is on its way to my doorstep as I type and I'm not sure what to expect. Worst case, I get no sleep at 9,000 feet and shiver a lot for six hours.
EXPERIENCED BIVY BAG USERS: What should I expect? Tips, pointers? Not overly interested in hearing from people who haven't used one.
The weather report isn't quite stabilized yet but it will probably be around 30F and I'll be in a 20 degree bag on a fantastic pad. Rain/snow? No idea yet?
