The Recon Bivy is an ultralight camping solution designed to protect you from splashes, ground moisture, and bugs during all of your adventures.

  • Bathtub floor made with 15D waterproof silnylon keeps you dry when sleeping in wet conditions

  • Center zipper runs the length of the mesh window, which makes getting in and out super easy
  • Shock cord suspends the mesh to give you more headroom, increasing comfort
  • Using the Recon with a tarp is recommended for full weather protection
  • The perfect addition to your pack to keep your sleep system simple, ultralight, and effective
