A bivy for rain protection (a splash bivy) is not necessary for a solo person under a two person tarp. In my experience, I am colder with this type of bivy than without because it compresses the down around my butt when I sleep on my side. If you are worried about mosquitoes, you can get a Sea to Summit nano net which is very light and gives you a relatively large amount of livable space. It’s also quite fragile. Don’t let any velcro get near it.Feb 8, 2022 at 6:43 am #3739416Chris KBPL Member
@dirtbaghiker – what size Bristlecone do you use for that winter set-up?Feb 8, 2022 at 3:57 pm #3739509dirtbagBPL Member
Pretty sure its a regular wide. I also have a MLD Superlight bivy and that is a large size..Feb 22, 2022 at 4:50 pm #3741216ChadBPL Member
Winter/fall I like my Big Agnes 3 wire Bivy. Summer my borah Bivy paired with a tarp.
