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.

New colors of Bargain Drawcord Bivys


Keeps wind, bugs, dirt off you and off of your nice down sleeping bag. Protects your inflatable sleeping pad and you from the damp ground. Great for Scout troops and schools, and those hard on equipment light, simple, inexpensive.

Super breathable top of 1.1 oz ripstop nylon. Waterproof bottom of silicone coated 1.1 oz ripstop nylon. Olive or Marpat digital woodland camo top, black bottom.

Drawcord closure at top. No zipper to wear out, you can draw it around your face to keep out drafts (especially nice for quilt users).

7.15 ounces in weight (7.4 with included tiny stuffsack) Roomy girth of 72″ from head to elbows, then tapering to 26 over it’s 85″ length (from opened top to heel). Drawn closed measures 80″ to heels. Squared footbox is 10″ high.  This gives a 6 ft tall person 8″ total extra for your bag to loft on either end or makes it useable by taller folks in warmer weather.

Stake out loop at bottom to keep it in place when you are out of the bag. Reinforced tie out in middle of the top panel. Tie it up to keep the fabric off your upper body for more ventilation or bug resistance.

Made in the USA of USA fabric. Just $55 with free shipping in the US.

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.”

Bike rack for pickup


A simple back rack for a pickup bed. Made using either an
extra hub quick release with two angle braces and a piece of tubing for a spacer or commercial attachments. Having them screwed to a board which is loose in the truck bed, makes it easy to put the bikes
on while on the tailgate. Then you can slide the whole thing to the positions you
want and a couple of straps held everything in place.
