luxuriate under your tarp/pyramid

A one trip first impression review: For 19 ounces, I got a finely constructed bivy that opens up the options I have for my Shangri-La 4+. The Pyramid+bivy setup works great as a modular setup, providing a large living working space on one side and a bug-free bathtub-floored bivy to sack out in on the other. This may be anathema to very serious ultralight devotees, but I think using ultralight gear to create a little trail side luxury is cool, too.

Of course, this could work in an ultralight setup with a basic silnylon tarp or used alone in dry climates or when the forecast is dry.

Setup was quite easy, especially so after years of travel, backpacking, and hitchhike odysseys with my old finicky eureka solitaire, three stakes and a clip on hoop gave me a stable bug shelter. I'm six foot four and found the bivy roomy for what it is and eminently well constructed and designed overall.

Awesome ultralight shelter

On those trips where bugs are more of an issue than weather, this is the perfect ultralight shelter. Weighing less than a pound and-a-half, you'll hardly know it's in your pack. Simple to set up... usually in under five minutes.

Entry and exit can be a little challenging (I'm a big guy), but the light weight and easy setup more than compensate.

All in all, a terrific shelter when for those glorious summer Sierra trips.

Recently had this set up in a car campground at the end of a backpack trip. Everyone who walked past, young and old, oohed and aahed over "that cool tent."

"good things do come in small packages"

I use this product in the everglades. It is a life-saver. I carry a small piece of visqueen for a make shift rain fly and it works great.

Lightweight and easy set up

Best when weight is a factor.

Great for a clear summer's day

The mesh bivy is very easy to set up. It is quite light. However, without a rain-fly, it is unusable in less than ideal conditions. I made the decision when I purchased that I would buy a tarp to handle any wet days I encountered, but when you add the weight of the tarp, you are approaching the weight of a light one person tent. The benefits of the tarp system over the home alone bivy is the breathability. My advice is to save your money for a do it all product rather than trying drape a tarp over this unit. If Marmot designed a rain-fly for the mesh bivy I would be first in line to purchase it.
