The generous interior and excellent ventilation of the Stealth Bivy make it a great choice for those travelling light and laying low.
Ideal for the lone wolf on the move, the design of this 3-pole single skin bivy will prevent condensation from soaking into your bedding. To ventilate the Stealth, open up the head and foot vents to get lots of air flow when the weather is warm. The high structured head area will keep the material off your face while you sleep, while the 5000mm waterhead rated floor and 3000mm rated fly will keep you dry if you encounter a drizzle.
Packing down do a compact size, the Stealth Bivy also features black pegs and poles to help and a camouflage exterior to help you conceal your location. Perfect for those who are travelling fast and light – the Stealth Bivy will help you blend in with the lay of the land.
While I like the design and idea I didn't feel confident about the materials used and the zip work. I felt like I'm in a framed garbage bag and the zips appear to be fiddly if I was in hurry. I took this bivvy on a couple of trips without rain, while it did the job keeping the mozzies out I kept getting the impression that it will not last many more trips.
Thanks for posting your review John - rest assured, while the fabric might seem lightweight, the Stealth Bivy is a solid tent and great bang for your buck. Hang in there, you should expect many years of use out of this tent especially as it's covered under a lifetime warranty. Laine
It is good for tenting
Thanks Bogan, you've really hit the nail on the head. Laine :)
Hi, It says the outside dimension of this tent is 205cm, but the sleeping area is 190L. I'm 193cm (6'3") tall. Will I fit in this? Cheers,
The difference in sizing is to allow for the angles at each end of the Black Wolf Stealth Bivy. At 193cm, you should fit in, it will just be a bit snug and your feet or head may push up against the fabric.
The bivy looks great but i want one that can be used on top of a cot. Will i be able to do this?
I suppose you could use this on top of a stretcher, but you obviously won't be able to peg it down, and if you set it up with the poles - they're not going to stay in place - which might be a bit annoying.
If you set it up without the poles, it will be more like a traditional bivy that's essentially a cocoon so it won't stay raised off your body while you sleep.
Bivys are usually designed for lightweight hiking, so if you're planning on camping you might want to consider a freestanding swag instead as that will give you some added comfort and protection.
Is there anything applied to the underside for reducing condensation ?
Hello, I am 183cm long and my mattress is 198cm long. Would the mattress fit inside comfortably ? Regards, Julian
Hello, Just wondering what is the outside minimum temperature to sleep comfortable in this tent ? (Assuming a 0 Celsius sleeping bag)
Min pegs for moderate conditons? Min pegs for windy contitions?
