Product Description

Our Breeze Mesh Bivy is the perfect one-person ultralight shelter when paired with a lightweight backpacking tarp, such as our Sanctuary Siltarp (sold separately). The mesh canopy provides a layer of defense against pesky insects and critters, while the 9-inch tub style floor will keep you and your gear dry during even the wettest storms. While the sides are mesh, the front and back are made from solid rip-stop nylon, providing good wind protection and privacy.

Use just the Breeze Mesh Bivy on clear days for great ventilation and an incredible way to experience a night in the outdoors. When inclement weather approaches, pitch the Sanctuary Siltarp over the bivy to provide the needed protection from wind and rain. The Breeze Mesh Bivy and our tapered 10 x 7/5 foot Sanctuary Siltarp combine to just 23 ounces, making this combo one of the best values in ultralight shelters.

Please note that additional supports will be needed to pitch the Breeze Mesh Bivy. Use nearby trees, our adjustable tarp poles (sold separately), or your favorite trekking poles as potential supports.

Learning curve but worth it

I am a hammock camper but a hammock is not always the best choice, for example hiking across Scotland I needed a bivy. The one that I used on that trip was suffocating. That led me to research options for a less constricting bivy. The Breeze Mesh Bivy is the perfect product. You do not have to slide into it or suffocate. I used it numerous times throughout the summer - with and without a tarp. I came back to pick up another one so that next summer I will have one for friends who want to camp. There is a learning curve for getting in and out but once you find the method - loosen the tension on the head end so you can just ease up and move forward out of the bivy - you will be very happy. I am sad that they are out of stock.

Mesh Breeze Bivy

I've used this for just a few nights so far, but I'm loving it. My son now wants to use a hammock, so I needed to find a lightweight solo "tent" option, and I decided to try this bivy with a tarp. I love the top entry zipper, so even under a low slung tarp, I can loosen the line locks and drop the mesh down flat and get in comfortably. The bivy is definitely not tall - you cannot change your clothes or sit up inside it, but it is NOTHING like other bivies that are cocoons. I'm a claustrophobic person, but this bivy does not bother me at all. The mesh allows lots of air to flow through in the summer, and I have the flexibility to set up my tarp higher on a night that I'm not worried about wind/rain. When I am worried about rain and wind, I can tighten up my tarp and be more contained when needed. The bathtub walls are nice and high, and the lower tie-outs work well. It can be tricky to get the upper corner tie-outs staked out perfectly, especially under a tarp. I do not have a Paria tarp, so maybe it would be easier with a Sanctuary Siltarp. I have set up my bivy with trekking poles and with trees....with and without a tarp when the weather deems it necessary. I use a piece of polycro or a groundcloth from another tent that I already own underneath. Some of my friends scoffed at my bivy because of the weight (they gram weenies), but for the price ($60ish) it is a great buy and not heavy at all. I'm not interested in sleeping under a tarp with no protection from bugs and snakes, and this is the perfect compromise. I would highly recommend this piece of gear!

Truly the best compromise.

I was able to get my mesh bivy and sanctuary siltarp out this past weekend for 2 nights, one of which was a downpour. Let me just say this bivy/tent and tarp combo is the best jack of all trades set up I could have asked for. I knew what I was getting into, I bought this as an ultra light tent option knowing full well it's not a tent. obviously there are better options for every category this bivy falls into. are there lighter, roomier, smallering packing, and more user friendly options, sure. but I've scoured the internet and nothing exists that ticks all those boxes and comes remotely close to this price point. And on top of that the quality is fantastic too! Night one I was setting up when I started to hear thunder and see lightning. by the time I started setting up the tarp the downpour was upon me. I got soaked during setup but the tent and all my gear stayed dry. I set up in dense woods and there was some minor splashing into the tent from the rain hitting the ground but it was very minimal (I suspect it was mitigated mostly by the taller bathtub floor, well done Paria). Breathability was great, if not a little too good at times with a breeze. One thing to keep in mind is if you have a thicker sleeping pad you lose a good chunk of protection from the bathtub floor sheltering you from the breeze (unless you're guying out the second set of tabs you'll never come close to the 9 inches of protection mentioned in the description). something to keep in mind when deciding what sleeping bag to go with. even with my 3.5 inch pad I was still clear of being up against the mesh (if almost barely at points). There is definitely a learning curve with this setup and it'll probably be a while before I've got it mastered. Getting the guylines tight is only half the battle, pitching them correctly to get maximum height out of the bivy is the other half. I've read about people struggling with the guylines cinching in the attached cinches, I didn't even bother with that. I simply created a loop around a tree or object and put in a double bowline knot so I can simply slide the knot to loosen and tighten as needed. Getting in it with the tarp over top is a struggle for sure. but this is where I remind myself it's still a bivy that I'm using as a tent. so far giving slack to the head guyline and allowing the head end to drop and crawl in is the only option I've found but it's doable. I almost would've rather had the zipper start at the foot end so I could crawl in head first, but then it would be silly for the times you don't need the tarp. A full length zipper would be optimum but then you gain weight. Lastly pitching the tent with 4 stakes is simple enough but the upper part of the bathtub floor will tend to collapse unless you guy out the upper tabs but that's just excessive. just something to keep in mind if you're truly going for the fast and light approach. the noseeum mesh is great, no bugs, no tears, and as mentioned earlier surprisingly breathable. Every time I've taken out a normal tent I always end up putting the tarp on and lose out on being able to see, this setup broke me of the habit because I don't have that option. Honestly for how snug the bivy is having all mesh keeps it from feeling claustrophobic , for me at least. This bivy/tarp combo was the catalyst to lighten my load and approach ultralight territory. having said all that as long as you're aware there will be some compromises I can not recommend highly enough the mesh bivy and accompanying siltarp. The price, the quality, the compressibility, the comfort level, it's all there and it's great! this will be my go to set up for solo hikes from now on.
