The Backpacking Bivy by The North Face is a poled bivy that is perfect for solo trips, ultra fast backpacking or any other endeavor where a single bivy is necessary. No more taking a big tent with dead space, just pop up the Bivy and feel relaxed that you are fully protected from wind and water. Constructed with a HyVent DT waterproof breathable shell that allows moisture to escape while keeping everything else that is wet... out. Easy to use Ball Cap clips on the brow pole ends offers a strong yet simple way of setting up even in windy weather and a comprehensive color coded pitch system makes it even easier to set up in the dark or day. A fully taped floor keeps water from entering when it pools below the Bivy and a high-low venting system allows for convection and crossflow giving the bivy a less claustrophobic feel.
