COMFORTABLE – Instead of designing the West Coast Bivy to be waterproof, we focused on making the largest, most breathable, and most comfortable single pole tent in the world. It is longer, wider, and higher than any traditional bivy, and is ultra breathable with 3 walls of ‘No-See-Um’ insect proof mesh.

EASY SETUP, ULTRALIGHT, COMPACT – All you have to do is look at the West Coast Bivy and it will set itself up in 3 seconds flat… if you’re a wizard! If not, it’ll take you around 2 mins. Featuring one lightweight collapsible shock cord aluminum pole and 6 ultralight pegs, and weighing in at only 2.3 lbs (1 kg) for the entire kit. Packed Size = 15 x 5 inch (38 x 13 cm) Compressed = 15 x 3 inch (38 x 8 cm)

EXTRA FEATURES – Batwing stiffeners keep the foot section elevated. Waterproof floor is made from double coated nylon with heat taped seams. 2 internal mesh pockets and external loops for rolling up the mesh door or hanging small items.

100% WATERPROOF KIT OPTION – If it rains when you’re camping, you really need a tarp to be comfortable! Even if you have a fully waterproof tent with a fly, you’ll be trapped inside unless you have a tarp. We offer this bivy as part of a 3-pc combo, with our large Guide Sil Tarp, and 4-pc Boa strap set. PLEASE NOTE: This product page is for the West Coast Bivy only. For full combo see our West Coast Combo.

    Excellent product. Excellent product .. better if the designer included a roll down rain sheet for the rear panel, to supplement a tarp overhead.

    Great buy Have yet to test it but the quality looks great, the tarp comes in its own drawstring bag. And the bivy in its own aswell. There is a separate drawstring bag for stakes and then they include some lashing in a plastic disposable bag. It was then all placed in a larger drawstring bag that fits all of the items plus more if necessary (like maybe you want a second smaller tarp to put your bivy on). The tarp is heavier than I thought but it is really big so it's not a big deal. All in all its not that heavy and seems like a great product. Looks like the company cares about it's products and that's great to see.

    Great bivy for dry arid environments. This shelter goes up in two minutes if you take your time and nap in between staking it down and inserting the single pole. The stakes are the wire style but thick and pre-pointed for easy insertion. If you bend one of these stakes then you need to leave your sledgehammer at home. It has plenty of room for one person and gear and you can sit up with plenty of room for elbows and getting dressed. The entry door is easy to get in and out of. I'm six feet 170 pounds so not much of a challenge for space. If you are a Leviathan, you might want something bigger but at 87 inches in length, tall people should not be fearful of this shelter. The three sided bug net offers lots of ventilation. This tent will not offer protection for rain, snow, and cold. It is best in hot arid climates. If you need protection from rain, snow, and wind you will need to buy a tarp. The recommended tarp was 10 feet by 13 feet. When you add a footprint, large tarp, and the shelter - it all will fit in the stuff sack the tent comes with - the weight will go to 4.5 pounds or more depending on the material used for the footprint and tarp. The bath tub is nice and deep to keep out moisture and sand or dirt. The workmanship was very good on seems. I found it easiest to set the pole by inserting one end in the pole keeper, stabilizing the pole on the other side with one hand and setting the free end in the keeper by holding it at the very end.

    Well thought out design and well constructed Just returned from 5 days wilderness hike on Flores Island, British Columbia. The Aqua Quest West Coast Combo could not have been better for this use- very light weight, can be set up in several configurations making it highly adaptable, and we noted the quality of construction and attention to detail in its design. I will recommend this to my fellow outdoorsmen.
