I’ve wanted to do a really simple bug bivy for a while now, so I’ve been messing around with ideas in the evenings and yesterday I finished the prototype.
220cm x 62cm
Corner pegging points with Lineloks
30d silnylon floor
BugritBivy – 198g
The pole is optional. The head section could be lifted and attached to your shelter, but the hoop shape does work well at keeping the mesh away from your face and for 11g I think it’s worth carrying it.
Hmmmm… hoops. Surprised none of the tent manufacturers have thought of that instead of forcing us to use trekking poles. I may approach some of them with my revolutionary new idea. I could call it a tunnel tent
The 2-way zip is roughly half the length of the bivy allowing easy access.
So there you have it. I won’t be making many changes to the production ones. I’m thinking of making it 10cm shorter and possibly 5cm higher, but that’s about it. I may also make a more substantial version – considerably wider at the head end and a 10cm tub with the Cunning Corner System, but that will of course weigh more.
I won’t be taking orders for these until probably next year, but I’m going to try and make a handful to offer through the new In Stock section of the site.
