The Recon bivy is an ultralight camping solution designed to protect you from splashes, ground moisture, and bugs during all your adventures. A bathtub floor made with 15D waterproof silnylon keeps you dry when sleeping in wet conditions. The shell constructed of 10D nylon and mesh, maintains breathability, reduces drafts, and allows you to still see the world around you, while keeping the bugs at bay. A center zipper runs the length of the mesh window, which makes getting in and out super easy. A shock cord suspends the mesh, to give you more headroom, increasing comfort.

Using the Recon with a tarp is recommended for full weather protection.

This is the perfect addition to your pack to keep your sleep system simple, ultralight, and effective.

I purchased the Regular/Regular size Recon in the color forest. I use a 5x9 flat tarp for hiking, and I was looking for something that would keep bugs off of me. I also wanted a bit of rain protection, so the bathtub floor was a large reason for my purchase. I tested the Recon out last night, and so far I think it's great! I really like the shock cord and cord lock. I attached the clip to one of the loops at the end of the tarp, and it was easy to tighten the cord while inside the bivy. Something to keep in mind: there is a nice amount of breathing room, but the bivy does add warmth. It was a hot night last night, and I ended up pushing my quilt to the bottom. I'm excited to use the Recon on my next camping trip!
