Roomy with easy exit and entry for the top. Good for extra protection from bugs, wind, ground moisture and dust when used with a tarp or pyramid shelter. Fits up to 6’6″ tall and wide enough for a 2.5″ thick 24″ wide pad inside.  Noseeum netting along zipper for great breathability. Squared head and foot sections to let your sleeping bag loft. Stake outs on the four corners to hold it in place when you get up in the night. Tie outs over face and feet. DWR fabric top for good breathability and water repellency (not waterproof, use with some sort of overhead rain protection, ie tarp, thick tree, etc.) Waterproof silicone coated bottom fabric. Leave your ground sheet at home to save weight. $120 with free shipping in USA.

Oware Drawcord Bivysack Review by ireviewgear.com


“This bivy is great and just what I was looking for and affordable, water resistant yet breathable bivy that will work really well for my 3 season sleep system. After using it quite a bit I really have come to like the draw top closure and not having to worry about an ultra–light zipper snagging on the fabric. It is very simple and does exactly what I need it to do.”
