Advanced Bivy™

Style# 40141OR

The spacious Advanced Bivy can be used in place of a single-person tent. The largest of our bivy sacks, the Advanced Bivy provides the most space for thicker sleeping pads and loftier bags. The patented dual-pole system can be used to increase ventilation and interior space, or left behind when weight and pack space are critical. GORE-TEX® Respiration Positive™ fabric allows warm, moist air to escape but blocks outside weather, minimizing condensation while providing supreme protection from the elements. A zippered vent at the base improves airflow on humid nights.

excellent bivy needs minor adjustments (Review by michaelmrc)
Quality

received this bivy from OR last month have tried it out on 3 occasions now. first night out was up the mountain mild drizzly conditions and the bivy performed excellent as far as keeping me dry and very warm. only thing that annoyed me was the 2 pole system as many other reviewers have mentioned doesnt stay in the position you want it to. condensation was nill quality of the product is excellent. 2nd night out was in torrential downpour had the bivy done up almost all the way. temperature was approx 5deg Celcius woke up in the morning with just a minimal amount of condensation on the pole liners but nothing anywhere else. 3rd night out was in minus 3 conditions with light slow bag performed excellent warm dry again only minimal condensation on the pole liners. things i found annoying are the pole end snaps sometimes pop off and the fact that the 2 pole system doesnt stay in place say if you want lots of ventilation it tends to fall down into the closed position. i minimized this by rigging up a line that held it open. 2nd annoyance is the stuff bag that it comes with is almost impossible to get the bivy bag into when youve been out in the field with it . would be nice if these were addressed by OR. i give this bivy bag a 5 star rating even with these minor annoyances.
