I am confident in my Uber Bivy and will back it up with a 100% refund if you are not satisfied.
Just make sure you use the groundsheet and don't abuse it for 1-2 nights.
If not happy, just send it back undamaged and I will refund you money.
It's that simple!
Now the challenge is to find a good storm to sleep in :)Mar 6, 2013 at 2:16 pm #1962254
Nice Looking Bivy Dave. You can't beat the money back guarantee either : )Mar 6, 2013 at 6:12 pm #1962401
I'm interested but not sure about the packability of the pole since it is one single piece. What is the pole size and material? Can you provide a photo of the pole packed? Thanks.
Also, I'd be interested in the double uber bivy but the dimension make it look like there is only room for two people, not two people and their gear. I'd hate to have to leave my gear out in bad weather when traveling with a friend on a routine basis.Mar 6, 2013 at 7:21 pm #1962452
I will put up some pictures of poles on my website soon. I/4" PEX.
I feel that my Double Uber Bivy is the largest practical bivy. Two people plus gear sounds like a tent ;)Mar 6, 2013 at 8:04 pm #1962472
Thanks for your reply. I look forward to those photos.
That's a good point on the size of the bivy.Mar 6, 2013 at 8:10 pm #1962474
This is more a small tent at 26 oz, however. Nice small tent but there are lighter tents that you can sit up in.Mar 6, 2013 at 8:39 pm #1962486
I have photos of the poles on the Uber Bivy page at MilesGear.
Yes, 26 oz is in the tent range, however you don't need stakes ;)Mar 6, 2013 at 11:36 pm #1962545
I added a quick video to show the setup and packing of the Uber Bivy.
Maybe this video will motivate me to get a better one out there.Mar 7, 2013 at 8:03 am #1962610
Nice looking setup. Love the spaciousness. No guying out, simple. I'll take another look tonight when I have more time.

I was thinking the other night, does the bivy have any loops to allow staking down, as one might be moving around camp and not want a wind to take off with your sleeping gear.:) Use rocks like your pic shows? The foot print is nice as no guying out is needed. Throw it down and you're set.

I have had quite a few ask for loops to stake it out. However, I intentionally designed the shape and construction of the bivy to not have stress points. Originally I used fabric with half the tear force of the white stuff. I don't recommend using rocks on top. It is a very common mountaineer method, however we fold the bivy in half first. This way the rocks are on the bottom fabric. The top hoop can easily lay flat and gives a very low wind profile. Usually the weight of some gear inside will do the trick. Another method is to have a piece of cord over the bivy with 2 rocks holding it down. I do put rock on the Tyvek groundsheet.Mar 9, 2013 at 5:12 pm #1963606
