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

  • 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

  • Center zipper with two double sided pull sliders insures the exit is always within reach

  • Handmade in Winona, Minnesota

Recon Bivy

I love this! I have been using it for 2 weeks now out on the PCT. I have been using it alone as well as with an MLD solomid. With the pyramid tarp, I did need to add a line which I attach to a zipper pull one end and the center of the tarp the other. This keeps the netting off my face - the clips on the solomid don't quite align the bivy netting correctly (I think with a flat or cat cut tarp, maybe even a bigger mid tarp, this wouldn't be an issues). Pitched without the solomid, 0 issues with net in face, tons of room for me and a few bed time items like water bottles, headlamps, etc. I am 5'4", and purchased size regular. Love the visibility, draft blocking, and easy in and out!

Recon Bivy

I've used the Recon bivy on several trips (~11 nights total) in the backcountry of Montana. I use a floorless pyramid style tent and I wanted some bug and moisture protection. Using a NeoAir pad, and EE Enigma quilt, I have plenty of wiggle room inside the Recon (size R). It keeps the bugs and moisture from below out. I use a polycro ground sheet underneath to protect the Recon's bottom from any sharp objects. Getting in and out of the bivy is at first a little awkward, but you get used to it quickly. The shock-cord overhead clip does not clip conveniently over my head, but it still works fine clipped off to the side. I really like the Recon bivy for UL bug and water protection.
