MLD BUG BIVY 2

Bug Freedom +.
WEIGHT: Pro SilNylon: 7.0 oz | 200 gm

Another MLD Original! Bug Protection + Great Ventilation for cooler Climates, Northern Latitudes and Harsher Weather. The Bug Bivy 2 is for colder temperatures and stronger winds than the MLD Bug Bivy. Mountain 10D 3X DWR head, foot, and side panels work to provide more overall protection in harsher, changing, and more northern climates. Our 30D Pro SilNylon floor has over 4,000+ mm water resistance and is far tougher than lighter 15D or 20D lightly coated nylons!

Set Up Tip: The head peak clip can connect to a short bungee from the front tarp pole OR a small 1mm under-the -tarp ridgeline string with loops tied along the way at correct spots are perfect to clip in the peak and foot clip up. NOTE: Any preset permanent under the tarp clip points may or may not line up with all possible bivy/over head needs. Many users will not clip up the foot end.

Our goal with the MLD Bug Bivy 2 was to design the lightest fully enclosed bug protection available with great wind and blown rain protection that could be clipped under a tarp, or used under any single walled tent, tarp, poncho, or pyramid styled shelter.

Top entry works well with any size tarp and most other shaped shelters, pitched at any height. Especially helpful for smaller tarps, pitched low for heavy weather.

Available with your choice of Orange or OD Green side panels. Floor color: Grey. One size fits most users up to 6’6″ | 198 cm. Above product photos show a 6’1” | 185 cm model with a size 12 foot.

    Jake (verified owner)

    Over the last year I’v been aiming to hit the sub 10lbs ultralight mark while having a highly modular setup (I camp all year round in Australia)
    A key component of that was going to be a bivy to keep the weight down but most were to cramped/to hot/built from very thin material.

    Very glad I found this! Its light, made out of decently strong material (It’s also made by MLD so you know the build quality is going to be on point) and with the side walls it will keep my dry under the tarp but the netting gives me protection from the bugs and plenty of ventilation.

    I use this Bivy under the tarp, inside the Duomid or just cowboy camping style.

    I am 85kg and 181cm and find it very roomy. I can easily sit up and have a drink at night and keep other things inside by my side.

    I really don’t have anything bad to say about this bivy, it meets my needs perfectly for an all year round, light weight, modular camping system.
    Thanks Ron and the entire MLD team 🙂
