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!

My kind of tent

I've only done a test drive in the backyard with it so far, but it all feels very well resolved and thought out and 'just enough'. You can see the 'why' of everything. If you look carefully you can see the things removed to make it better. For the price, you'd struggle to do any better.

Lightweight and very compact

Great quality. Still need to test how breathable the mesh will be in the summer, cause its really fine. The size is a bit big to mee; could be somewhat shorter (it would better fit under my Tarp), but in the sametime you have space to put your clothes in the bottom/head-room. Happy with my purchase!

Fantastic bit of gear

Brilliant quality and weight for the price. Couldn't find a comparable item in the UK.
