Half bag/overbag


Using some pre quilted hollow fiber insulation and some Camo surplus nylon, sewed up a half bag. Fits over my down bag and ties to the side loops so it won’t slip off in the night. Allows extra insulation and weather resistance with minimal weight. My down jacket can serve as insulation on the top half.

Weighs 17 ounces.

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.”

Sump screen


A sump screen can be a lightweight help in reducing your environmental impact
on the wild places you love. By straining the food particles from your dishwater,
you dissuade animals from digging up the soil where your dishwater is drained,
and help keep them wild and unaccustomed to humans. This is especially important
on popular trails and camping areas. Help keep the chipmunks, marmots, jays, raccoons, skunks, coyotes, deer, and bear safe and out of other users gear.

I like a square panel of noseeum netting leftover from tents and bivysack manufacture.

I will send a piece with each order from Oware if you will note you want one in the comment
section of the order.
