Bug Bivy (Review by By Cougar Bait)

I use my Bug Bivy 4-5 days a week, working on a trail crew. Both for work and pleasure this bivy hasn't let me down. You will barley notice it in your pack. Its great to keep the creepy crawlers out and to throw in your daypack when headed into mosquito country, to have lunch in. This along with a tarp is the ultimate lightweight setup for spring and summer camping. The only trouble i've encountered is getting in and out of with ease, for those mid-night nature calls it can be difficult to shimmy out of, but what bivy is. Overall, this is ideal for simple, minimal camping weather it's backcountry, frontcountry, or beach camping.

Bug Bivy (Review by By ConnieD)

I may have had one of the first made.I use my Outdoor Research Bug Bivy often.I have never worn out an Outdoor Research Bug Bivy. I have had three, over the past many years, only because two were stolen.I use it backpacking and horse packing.I often use it for sleeping cowboy-style: no tarp, no tent.On well-drained ground, I flop over and the bottom has kept the rain off and all my gear was inside and dry.Sturdy, easily wiped clean.Looks like brand new.
