The Nemo Escape Pod is a two-thirds length bug bivy with drawstring closure. Provides bug protection where you need it, without wasting an ounce of weight.
Unique NEMO AST airbeam, or inflatable rib, weighs hardly anything and packs smaller than traditional poles for the perfect bikepacking solution. Combine Escape Pod™ bivy, Moonwalk™, and Apollo™ shelter for the ultimate bikepacking kit.
Nemo's Escape Pod is about half the weight and size of an average bivy and at half the price too! It's not your traditional waterproof bivy as it's only two-thirds length and a lot less claustrophobic. This is because it has an inflatable air-beam column with Black No-see-um bug mesh to cover above your head. The bottom of the mesh bivy wraps the torso of your sleeping bag, keeping bugs out and your inner space wide open.
It's ideal for using under a tarp, inside cabins or for sleeping under the stars (on a rain free night). Because its constructed using an inflatable Air beam instead of poles, it packs down incredibly small, taking up less storage space than a standard bivy. As it's not full length or waterproof it won't be suited for everyone. But for those backpacking, cycling or trekking light, it could be the perfect piece of kit.
