A no-frills option for ultra-lightweight backpacking, the Outdoor Research Aurora Bivy provides a snug, secure sleeping space and provides weather protection beneath a canopy of innovative, breathable Gore-Tex Respiration+ fabric. Though not for everyone, this minimalist shelter allows backpackers to greatly reduce packed weight while still ensuring a dry, wind protected night outdoors.
Appealing to thru-hikers and ultra-lightweight devotees, the Aurora Bivy weighs a mere 1.5 lbs. Measuring 84 in. long and 25 in. wide at the head, tapering to 21 in. wide at the feet, the Aurora Bivy is large enough to accommodate most sleeping bags and accompanying backpacking sleeping pads.
Gore-Tex's amazing Respiration+ fabric offers durable, waterproof, windproof protection while allowing air to circulate, ensuring that you can breathe easily and avoid condensation build-up. No-see-um netting at the opening of the Aurora Bivy allows you to peel back the Gore-Tex to view the stars on clear nights and allow completely unimpeded airflow. The nylon floor of the Aurora Bivy has a Hydroseal coating for full waterproof protection. Fully taped seams provide further assurance that moisture remains outside of the Aurora Bivy.
The Outdoor Research Aurora Bivy is available in Mojo Blue and Alpenglow color options.
