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 20D 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. In a Pyramid, the slope of the Mid wall may limit the vertical height head end of the bivy.
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. 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.
