Bristlecone Bivy

The Bristlecone Bivy provides a waterproof floor with a water resistant upper to protect your quilt from spray and mist. Featuring a large mesh window and long U shaped zipper extending from waist level across the top, allowing for easy entry and exit. Designed to work well with both pyramid shelters and tarps.
  • Large Mesh Panel- No-seeum mesh window over your head provides ventilation.

    Long #3 YKK Zipper- Long inverted U zipper running from waist level to above head, allows easy entry and exit.

    Waterproof ROBIC® Nylon Silicone/UTS Coated Floor- ROBIC® high tenacity yarn and UTS coating provide extra tear strength, abrasion resistance, and it is less slick than a traditional silicone coating.

    Bathtub Style Floor- Reduced seams in the floor for increased weather resistance.

    Pertex Quantum Air Upper- This highly breathable, water resistant fabric features a long lasting DWR coating that outperforms and outlasts other DWR treatments. Increased air permeability reduces condensation while remaining highly wind resistant.

    Internal Sleeping Pad Attachment- Internal sleeping pad attachment keeps your sleeping pad in place. The Cord Clip locations on our quilts line up with the pad attachments in our bivys. Cinch your pad in place in your bivy, then simply clip your quilt onto the same cords.

    Full Bug Protection- Full bug protection keeps the creepy crawlies at bay, making the bivy ideal for use under a tarp or floorless shelter.

    Elastic Hang Loops- Tie loops at the head and foot to keep the bivy fabric off your face and quilt.

    Generous Dimensions- Allows room inside for gear storage. Both regular and wide versions fit 25" wide sleeping pads.

    Stake Loops at the Corners- Ribbon loops at the corners facilitate drying or allow staking.

    Stuff Sack Included- Included stuff sack for storage. Adds 0.25 ounces.

Better than I could have asked for

I never thought I would be a bivy type. After hiking with a friend that used one on a trip that had no rain for 45 days, I was very jealous. So I took the leap and got myself the bristlecone. I used it on the Colorado trail which rained practically every night. I am now obsessed with the bivy and its versatility. The bristlecone has more room than other bivys which is its major selling point as bivys can be a bit claustrophobic. I also chose this because of the zipper design that runs down both sides, so when using a tarp you can enter either side of the bivy. All in all I cant say enough about this bivy and its design. Just breathable enough to keep you cool on hot nights and protective enough for cooler nights with great splash protection during heavy rain. I know there are a lot of other options out there but this is going to be my go to bivy. The build quality and performance is just great.

Awesome bivy

I plan on using my Bristlecone Bivy with my 30 degree Katabatic Palisade Quilt. This sleep system is a perfect match with my Mountain Laurel Designs Grace Duo Tarp. I am looking forward to hiking the Colorado Trail this summer.
