Re: camping in a Bivy help
Howdy - have you ever camped in the conditions you mentioned above ?
10,000' in elevation at this time of year -w/ foul weather predicted can be very rough ,I'm -not- talking from expierence b/c i haven't had good luck/expierence w/ bivies.
Down bags are the only bag as far as i'm concerned ,i don't think bivies have enough volume to be able to vent themselves ---too damp !!
The body puts off lots of moisture and down bags and moisture don't go hand in hand at all nor do synthetic bags..
I'm more of a lightweight tarp or tent guy myself -i'd sway way towards an ultralight tent if it were me ,can't imagine trying to wait out bad weather a whole day much less a few days in a bivy.
As a - bare minimum- i'd include a lightweight tarp 8'x10' minimum .
Give us some more info. on your set-up .-Mike
