Piñon Bivy

It's very light and has a small storage size.
It's easy to set up and easy to get in and out of.
Even when I slept inside, I didn't feel any pressure and was able to sleep comfortably.


By far the best investment in my kit that I’ve made. Love this thing. It’s super light and roomy. Won’t leave home without it.

Great bikepacking Bivy bag

I recently purchased the Pinon Ivy bag for bike packing. I’ve used a few times now and found it to be a great part of a light weight sleep system. I’ve used it in the mountains and down on the flats in both mild and hot temperatures and it’s preformed wonderfully each time. A recent trip along a mosquito infested river kept me bite free and comfortable all night. The only time I’ve found the bag slightly uncomfortable was on a very hot night, with extremely high humidity and no breeze, I don’t expect any solution would work ‘well’ in those circumstances. The bag is hard wearing and light, easy to pack, takes up no room and keeps you comfortable.

Thing is light as a feather. Stays in my pack all the time. Great piece of gear

Exactly what I needed.

Just had a chance to take this out on an extended backpacking trip in WV, MD, and PA during a hot and humid week. I used the bivy in two ways; set up with a ridgeline and set up in a shelter with the face netting rigged to stay off the face. During the whole week I had no problems with condensation on the inside even though the humidity levels were high. My pad slid around on a quick overnight I took previously, so I purchased a piece of EVA foam (1x2) to place under it and that definitely helped. I purchased the 6' wide size and that allowed plenty of room along the sides and at 5' 10", about 10" or so of room at the head for anything I wanted to keep inside. It didn't rain during my trip, so I didn't get the chance to test the splash protection. I received plenty of questions at different spots, most being jealous of the weight savings over a tent after I told them what the bivy weighs. It was also consoling to know no creepy crawlies were getting in while sleeping on the ground or in the shelters. I saw some large wolf spiders that I certainly didn't want crawling on my face. The extra large mesh was nice when the humidity and temperature were high. It let some air flow through. That and not having to worry about insects allowed me to sleep shirtless and stay relatively comfortable. All in all, the Pinon Bivy is the perfect shelter for my needs; light, protective, comfortable, and quick and easy to set up. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and it seems it's well built and will last the test of time.
