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.”

Used by Search and Rescue Skiers as a compact and quick tool to get a wet person out of the wind and wet.

The orange colors make a good signaling device and wind sock. Dimensions 85″ length, 71″ shoulder girth, 48″ inch foot girth. Can be compacted to fist size. Also works well as a roomy vapor barrier liner inside a sleeping bag to prevent condensation in the insulation.  Silicone coated 30d type 66 nylon in either blaze orange or black.
