Piñon Bivy

The Piñon Bivy provides a waterproof floor with a water resistant upper to protect your quilt from spray and mist. Featuring an extra 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.
  • Extra Large Mesh Panel- The extra large mesh panel over your head and torso provides excellent 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.

Excellent Bivy

Pretty great all around: lightweight, weather resistant, affordable, relatively breathable. I do wish it were just a little bit taller at the head, though.

Piñon bivy

Very impressive piece of gear. It’s great in my floorless shelter or under a tarp. It’s light enough that I bring it sometimes even when I won’t need it. This is my first experience with just letting the air out of my pad rolling the whole unit up and shoving it in my bag and it’s awesome for that.
I’m 6ft 190lbs and the regular/regular is perfect. I’m not a claustrophobic person tho.

An Excellent Bivy!

I bought the piñon a week before I left for the CT this year to use with my flat tarp. I'm glad I did! I used to have the older Bristlecone version and definitely love the improvements on this bivy. As a tall hiker, the Long Wide gave me plenty of room with a 20 degree quilt and 3" LW air mat. Looking forward to using it this winter in a mid.

After receiving it, I immediately used it for a two-night excursion in Japan.
I camped along the river but there was no condensation at all.
The experience of sleeping under the beautiful autumn starry sky without worrying about insects is wonderful.
The interior feels so wide that you can't imagine it from the outside.
Combined with DCF's tapered tarp, you have the lightest shelter system!

Piñon....the perfect bivy

Expertly designed and flawlessly executed. Grab the Piñon and a flat tarp and you're set for just about anything....and all for less than a pound. This is my favorite set-up for just about anywhere on the Colorado Plateau, Desert SW, and similar settings. Needed this fast and Katabatic came through for me. Great Colorado company.
