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.”

Rescue Bivysack/VBL


Used by Search and Rescue Skiers as a compact and quick tool to get a wet person out of the wind and wet. Wind and waterproof coated nylon sack stops evaporative and convective heat loss for the whole body in a super tough and compact 7 ounce package. 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. Group discounts available. Call 888-292-4534 for more info.

Cat Tarp, the original


CatTarp TM

Home of the backpacking tarp with the catenary cut to the ridgeline. And the first ones made of silicone coated nylons and Cuben Fiber TM laminates. We coined the term “cat cut” to describe and differentiate this new feature on our tarps from others on the market.  By using this curve, it takes stretch and bag out of the fabrics and enables the tarp to be a “hummer not a flapper” with fewer tie outs and stakes in high wind.

Others may have copied the name, descriptions, even drawings from Oware.   Not all tarps with “cat” in the  name are made the same way or have 26 years of tarp making experience and goodwill behind them.
