The MSR E-Bivy is an ultra lightweight, compact and water resistant bivy. Ideal for use with a tarp to create a minimalist shelter or on it's own as an emergency shelter.
The diminutive, weather-resistant E-Bivy sack adds the ideal amount of protection for wide range of situations without adding much to your pack. Its silicone-coated fabric top blocks wind, dew, spindrift and even light precipitation, adding valuable warmth and comfort when used under tarps, on open bivies and for winter camping. It can also be tossed into a pack lid on any trip, providing essential protection for an unplanned night in the hills.
The E-Bivy is MSR's lightest and most compact, water resistant bivy, now even lighter and more breathable than the previous model. It does exactly what a good bivy should; it offers protection from wind, damp ground surfaces and morning condensation, all without burdening your pack with excess weight. The pack size is excellent too, packing just a little smaller than a Nalgene bottle so it doesn't take up valuable room in your pack.
If your looking for a minimalist camping shelter you can combine it with a tarp and lightweight sleeping bag to provide a warm and dry nights sleep. It can also be tossed into a pack lid on any trip, providing essential protection for an unplanned night in the hills.
