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.


  • 5.5” bathtub floor made with 15D waterproof silnylon, with stake loops, and stiffener, at the corners

  • 10D nylon footbox and side panels provide splash protection

  • Optional 7D micro ripstop nylon for lowest weight options.
  • Large mesh window allows for breathability and visibility resulting in much less interior condensation than a full fabric top, while adding full bug protection.

  • Shaped three dimensional head and foot end give the bivy more interior space and reduce compression on the quilt/insulation

  • Shock cord and cord lock at head end of zipper allows bivy to be lifted for increased headroom

  • Shock cord and cord lock on footbox to lift bivy up and increase room for your feet.
  • Center zipper with two double sided pull sliders insures the exit is always within reach

I'm normally a tent guy. This bivy has all the pluses of a tent and no negative. Packs as small as my first. But im totally enclosed. Used my handle bars to lash it up in front. Enough space to put my clothes next to me when i slept. And Im 6'3" 230lbs . No moisture build up. Highly recommend. Worth the price. My first trip with this was the stagecoach 400. So it had a good test

I like it.

The biggest appeal for me for this product is the zipper. I had another bivy that required you to shimmy into an opening messing up your sleeping pad and bag. The second biggest appeal was the mesh upper. I've found the full on water proof bivy's keep moisture out but also keep it in. The open design allows the system to breath and kept me comfortable. My first use was in the snow with a low around 15F and a hi around 40. With a tarp over top similar to the video on the website and some other gear I was more than comfortable. If you're a big guy or gal ibr commend the larger size. A little more comfortable with no size different in terms of packing it up. That's the other great part. There is no folding, finicking, or fussing getting this to pack. It could fit in a jacket pocket if you wanted. The reason I gave it four stars is just because it's not water proof. Otherwise it's absolutely fantastic.
