Black Diamond's Big Wall Hooped Bivy is one of the most spacious bivys we sell. This 4 season bivy will put up with years of use and the unique tie in point means you can attach it to your belay when sleeping high up on a wall or mountain.
Black Diamond says:
A waterproof bivy sack with an integrated, waterproof tie-in point, the Big Wall Hooped Bivy is ideal for sleeping through bad weather on the wall.
Black Diamond's Big Wall Hooped Bivy is a very spacious and heavy duty 4 season bivy. The Toddtex fabric feels very tough and will keep you protected from the elements.
A key feature of this bivy is the size, its the widest bivy we sell and one of the longest so well suited to larger folk and can easily accommodate larger winter sleeping bags. The hoop is not fully rigid, the sewn in wire does give some structure and helps keep the fabric of your face. There are 2 small internal support struts that help the structure when placed in there sleeves, however this would be fiddly in cold conditions.
The bag has a mesh inner to keep bugs out which is great when you don't need the outer zipped up.
The truly unique feature of this bivy is the integrated tie in point so you can secure the bag to your belay when high up on a big wall or mountain.
