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

Great product

I love this product and it came exactly as was advertised but when using it I found there could be some adjustments for more usability. First, the corners did not stay up with the little piece that came with the product so I just found stick to keep it up every time but I think it would be better to take these off completely, maybe save weight. Next, the bungee that kept the mesh off of my face was very stretchy and could be better if it didn't stretch out so much. Lastly, I don't usually say this on reviews but this product does not seem to be worth $150 i think it should be $100 at most for what you are getting, which is basically a nylon and mesh bag. Overall this does what it is intended to do but I think it could be made better.

Does what it's intended to!

I recently purchased a Recon for a bikepacking and backpacking trip and overall it is high-quality and does the job at keeping the bugs away. I love the packed size and negligible weight as it disappears on into my pack. My one wish is that the peak was a bit higher to keep the mesh off your face.
