I used this bivy as part of my sleeping system while racing the 11 day / 1000 mile Iditarod Sled dog Race in Alaska. It was awesome in conjuntion with my -60 down bag and thermarest pad. Protected me from harsh wind, blowing snow and wet snow.

I'm on my second Advanced Bivy. The first one lasted for 6 years and is still in good condition but I like to keep things in top shape so I use it as a loaner. This bivy has served me well for many offtrail above treeline multiple day expeditions in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Always dry inside in rainy conditions. I have stayed dry in multiple soaking storms and survived -5F degree windy winter conditions. It has the typical minor condensation issues in certain conditions but proper setup and the zippered vent at the foot help to minimize the problem. It is obviously cramped quarters for getting dressed, and getting in and out takes some practice and in certain situations (rain) it is virtually out of the question. Paired with a tarp to cover the entryway it is actually borderline luxurious but I rarely add the tarp due to weight. Plenty of room for me and my essentials for the night on a thick comfy pad. It can be setup virtually anywhere and is freestanding which is nice with fast changing conditions and uncertain terrain when above timberline. Its nice to know I can throw it down quickly if needed.

Awesome

Lots of room on the inside to fit your air mattress and large sleeping bag. Im 6 foot tall and had room for myself and most of my things, ruck stayed outside. Was happy with how small it packed up after use (as you usually cant pack it as tightly as it comes in the package). Overall very happy and it made work buddies jealous!

Great product. I just took this bad boy winter camping and it did not let me down. You will have to add your own tent stakes and cordage, which is only needed in high wind or if you plan to leave your bivy set up. If you are setting up and going right to bed, its great as is. I also found this set up to be relatively spacious (5'10" 165lb). This could easily fit an extra large camp mattress, if I was car camping, so anything smaller is workable. I appreciate the extra room of the Advanced Bivy. I am a "go light" type and this bivy offers plenty of room to house my extra backcountry comfort gear along my sides and above my head. To me, the Advanced is worth the additional 5 ounces for spaciousness and dual pole system. Added bonus, the stuff sack is the same Gore-tex material as the bivy, so it can be a water proof ditty sack instead.

Great piece of kit

5

Light and spacious, this legendary piece of kit is the ultimate yardstick in the bivy arena. Being 5 ft 10 I can easily stick in a pair of boots and a 40L backpack by the opening and comfortably fit inside (I would say that for someone 6 ft tall it would still be OK but try for yourself). Spreading gear along one of the sides is also an immediate solution so unless one is backpacking heavy (which defies the purpose of using a bivy) there really is no need to expose gear to the elements, specially when it gets rough. Also, with feet and head vents I can't imagine anyone ever running into condensation issues; after all it's made of Respiration Positive Gore-Tex. As a suggestion I would recommend stating in the instructions that in the "Closed" bivy setting, the 5-section pole should perhaps be disconnected from the ingenious interior snaps so as to avoid putting unnecessary strain at the pole ends.

Quality product that works as advertised

5

I'm a backpacker and a motorbike travel enduro camper... Nothing monumental, but it's easy to set up and take down. Works as advertised. Relatively light and packs small. I've not had problems with set-up, tear own, zippers, condensation, or anything else. I like this system for a solo attack on anything you might consider. I've looked at other solutions, but haven't come up with anything that makes me want to change direction.

Discussions

Since my Advanced Bivy is made of goretex do I need to retreat it with DWR? If so how do I do so? Is it safe to put in the dryer?

JR

Hi JR, You can use Nikwax Tent & Gear Solarproof (or the concentrated version). According to Nikwax here are the instructions to use the solution: For best results always clean item(s) first. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing. Erect tent OR protect working surface and lay clean item flat. Apply diluted product evenly to outside of fabric with a spray, brush or sponge (avoid backpack straps). For large items apply in sections. As you treat the fabric, remove any surplus product with a damp cloth. Check carefully to ensure no areas have been missed. After several minutes check for and remove surplus product with a damp cloth*. *Marks may appear on fabric if excess product is not wiped away. Test on a hidden area first. Use approximately 2 fl oz (50 ml) of diluted product per 10 ft² (1 m²) of fabric. The coverage is approximate and depends on the condition of the fabric being treated. To maintain waterproofing always clean with Nikwax Tech Wash®. Do not use detergents. To waterproof cotton, polycotton or canvas use Nikwax Cotton Proof™ We recommend drying the jacket in the shade. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

it is safe to put in the drier as long as no heat. This will keep your bivy in good condition.

I now use an ultra-light 3 season, 1 person tent at just under 3 lbs, plus l carry my sleeping bag an inflatable pad. lf l switch to a bivy would l still carry a ground cloth, air pad, and sleeping bag, plus stakes and cordage? What is the packed size of the bivy? Thank you.

Burt

Hi Burt, the footprint is optional, however, you would still need to carry a sleeping pad, sleeping bag, stakes, and cordage. The bottom of the bivy is waterproof; a footprint will increase the life of the bivy. The packed size of the bivy is about 14.5" x 5". Thanks for contacting OR!
