SUPERLIGHT DUO BIVY ™
SectionHiker.com “Gear of the Year” Award Winner
WEIGHT: 9.0 – 12.0 oz | 255 – 340 gm
A 2004 MLD Innovation, the Pro Level SuperLight Duo Bivy ™ was the first DWR (Durable Water Repellant) top entry, super-light backpacker bivy with an all net only hood built for 2 people! Over a decade later, we are proud to say it’s still the best!
This bivy is just like the famousSuperLight Solo Bivy ™, except it is CUSTOM SIZED FOR 2 PEOPLE! Unlike the Solo, the Duo has an all net hood only for comfort, and dual-side zippers, for easy entry/exit for both parties.
“I’d have to say that the Superlight bivy has been the one piece of backpacking gear that has had the biggest impact on my camping experience and comfort….It’s a very flexible piece of ultralight gear than can be used in a variety of situations to increase your sleeping comfort.” – PHILLIP WARNER | SECTIONHIKER.COM
The Pro Level SuperLight Duo Bivy ™ was designed to be used with overheard protection or shelter in the rain –it is not waterproof! The main functions of the SuperLight Dou Bivy ™ are:
1. To be part of a total sleep heat retention system, adding 5 – 15 degrees of warmth, especially when even a slight wind gets under and around your shelter.
2. Bug protection.
3. Built in ground cloth.
4. To protect from any blown or splashed rain /snow that gets in under your overhead shelter.
5. To shave weight from a total shelter system. It’s a 9oz multi-purpose piece of gear that allows for a lighter sleeping bag, a smaller overhead shelter, and no ground cloth, or extra bug protection system.
6. It can be used alone for night temps above about 65 degrees when you do not need a sleeping bag but do need some wind/water protection. It adds a bit of warmth (like a sheet.)
7. It can be used alone, with no overhead tarp, for cowboy camping.
8. It pairs perfectly with a backcountry-style quilt to limit warm air venting during night moves.
9. By putting your sleep pad inside the bivy you increase the sleep pads thermal efficiency by limiting convective heat loss.
