An unconventional approach

Problems with the conventional Tent & Bivy

Conventional tents are spacious but too heavy and bulky for fast hiking.

Bivies are light and pack small but lack vestibule and feel claustrophobic making them unsuitable for waiting out bad weather.

Our Bivy tent fills the gap and meets in the middle, it is super lightweight and very compact, it does not slow you down and gives you the comfortable shelter you need in extreme weather conditions.

Space

Roomy for the solo minimalist adventurer

A space not just for sleeping, enough room to sit inside, read, write, cook, change clothes in bad weather. Even the side sleepers get the room they need.

Vestibule

Protect your things & cook when required

Traditional Bivies lack space to keep your things like a rucksack, shoes, etc., and are exposed without protection.
We’ve come with a solution for this and added a spacious vestibule system, not just to keep your backpack and shoes but for cooking in bad weather.

Geometry & ventilation system

Tent geometry suitable for high altitude conditions

The geometrically designed pyramid-type shape is extremely aerodynamic and does not allow any snow to accumulate on the top, The anchor points and the poles make it rock hard even in high winds.

Triple ventilation system

Specially designed front and back mesh for cross ventilation to avoid condensation.

More Features

Pocket

Bivy got a pocket and you can put your goggles, sports watch, or any gadgets instead of throwing it on the corners & finding it on your back in the middle of the night.

Headlight attachment

Misplacing the headlight & searching in the middle of the night is stressful, so we’ve got the headlight attachment too, It’s placed in the right corner & works as your bedroom light.

Built by a Mathematician!

The story of the tent starts when a Himalayan adventurer placed an order for a custom Bivy shelter for the solo trans-Himalaya trip. She liked the compactness, windproof, and waterproofness of a Bivy bag. The problem with the Bivy is you can’t protect your gears from the bad weather due to lack of vestibule which was a requirement. The first prototype was more of a bivy than of a tent. In the first few uses only we realized how uncomfortable a Bivy can actually be. Since then my hunt for a perfect ultralight 4 season shelter started, in this time span we have made over 5-6 different prototypes.

I being a mathematician wanted to solve this geometry problem which was there in earlier prototypes which was the tent not getting tensioned properly and not being very wind resistant because of its different shape. In my research, I got to know about how the concept of a catenary curve and how big chains are tensioned using curves and I implemented the same concept in the Bivy tent, the triangle shape was given to the tent because it is the strongest shape. After a lot of research and prototypes, I’m presenting you my Product the Bivy tent. It is the perfect hybrid of a tent and a Bivy which works well for all kinds of users.

Material and Construction


Shell

Windproof, Waterproof & Fungus resistant

  • Custom made 15D ripstop polyester
  • Silicone coating on the outside and PE coating inside makes the fabric waterproof to 3000mm
  • Polyester fiber makes the fabric more resistant to fungus
  • Polyester fiber does not absorb water like nylon so it stays tensioned, strong even in the rains, and dries even quicker than nylon
  • Polyester is excellent for UV degradation resistance which makes the tent last longer unlike nylon


Other Fabrics

Ventilation fabric:

  • 20D ripstop nylon- with DWR finish makes the fabric breathable but highly water-resistant.
  • 20D ripstop nylon mesh- C6 DWR coating adds up the water-resistant capability even more

Reinforcement:

300D Hyper D Nylon: Incredibly abrasion resistance and highly tear-resistant gives that extra protection where required.
1000D Cordura: One of the world’s strongest and most abrasion resistance fabrics specially used to handle the tension of carbon fiber poles.

Seam tape

All the seams of the bivy tent are seam taped, this makes the tent 100% waterproof.

Trims

All the plastic parts are gathered from around the Earth, these parts are top-of-the-line products. Each trim is tested to its limit then used in the bivy tent.

Carbon fiber poles

Carbon fiber is used in space technology and is very famous for its strength to weight ratio, it is used to keep the foot area of your tent stable. Two of the 50cm poles are divided into 8 small parts so they can fit in your tent pouch.
