Featuring an oversize rectangular cut, the Kelty Classic Bivy provides backpackers with a secure, waterproof sleeping shelter that has space for a bag and pad plus a bit of extra wiggle-room. A large mesh vent window allows a view of the stars. Though not for everyone, this minimalist shelter allows backpackers to greatly reduce packed weight while still ensuring a dry, protected night outdoors.
Measuring 88" x 34", the Classic Bivy is large enough to accommodate most traditional rectangular sleeping bags and accompanying standard sleeping pads with room to spare. Since it doesn’t use poles, the Classic Bivy weighs in at a respectable average packed weight of 1lb, 6oz. A U-shaped zipper allows easy entry and exit.
Waterproof/breathable fabric in the body of the Classic Bivy offers durable, waterproof protection while allowing air to circulate, ensuring that you can breathe easily and avoid condensation build-up. No See Um Mesh at the face opening of the Classic Bivy allows you to peel back the main fabric to view the stars on clear nights and allow completely unimpeded airflow.
The 70D Nylon floor is treated for full waterproof protection. Fully seam-sealed construction provides further assurance that moisture remains outside of the Kelty Classic Bivy.
