The Recon bivy keeps you protected from splashes, ground moisture, and bugs during all your adventures. With no-see-um mesh panels over the head and torso, the Recon boasts excellent ventilation and moisture control. To keep you dry, there’s a 5.5 inch bathtub floor made with waterproof 15D silnylon. The side and top fabric panels are made with our customized ultralight nylon, with a durable water repellent finish to shed dew and frost.

A center zipper runs the length of the mesh window, making it easy to set up your sleep system and get in and out of the Recon. A shock cord suspends the head and foot ends to give you increased interior space. Stake loops and stiffeners at the bathtub corners allow you to quickly stake out the bivy and maintain the bathtub’s shape. You can pair the bivy with our Rival or Rival Duo tarp for an ultralight shelter with full weather protection.

If you are interested in a different color consider purchasing a pair of custom Recon Bivy

"What a great piece of gear, super light weight and very small. Easy to pitch and take down and pack. I use it on weekend trips where I'm going as light as possible. Small/light enough that I take it on multi-day trips with my tent and use when I don't want to be bothered with tent set-up." - Dick

Not durable

Pro's. 1. Light 2. Compact. 3. Nice material.
Con's. 1. Fragile (may be stitching quality or a problem with the design. Mine had one of the corner support rods poke through the stiching.) 2.Hard to get in and out esp. When under a tarp. 3. The mesh would lay on my face eliminating the mosquito protection. I had to secure both ends of the elastic cord to my tarp to get enough tension to keep the m.h mesh off my face. 4. Set up is much harder than a tent.
Note: I have only used this once

Great Bivy

I bought this bivy for use in the shelters along the AT. being lite weight and with the bug netting would be great to keep the mice off. this will add an additional layer of warmth to my bag in the cold months.
