With the down filled canopy offering a loft comparable to a 35°F sleeping bag, the Dog Bivy v.2 is a solid 3 season shelter/bag for a cold dog. Optional synthetic Apex insulated cover can extend the use into winter.

Extensively tested at altitude during all seasons by Skottidog

Features

UL certified at about 10 ounces, including ground pad, for a size medium.

Fully box-baffled canopy with 900fp Expedry goose down and draw cord sealable main opening. Sewn onto pad sleeve to make it draft free on three sides. 

Waterproof silnylon inner material to protect the down from wet dogs, with breathable 15d DWR ripstop on the outside.

Stake out loops at corners, and overhead hang loop to keep door open on warmer nights.

Standard removable 1/4" CCF pad comes with bivy. Winter cover is supplied with an additional CCF pad for doubling up if used on snow.

Fit

The 5 sizes available relates to the approximate dimensions of the CCF ground pad. Size medium is good for 35-40 lbs. We will exchange to a different size if only tested indoors.

Measure your dog in a relaxed, but somewhat curled sleeping position and reference the numbers in the Sizing field.

Winter Cover

The optional 4 season cover attaches with toggles at the corners and is cut oversize with reverse catenary edges. Synthetic Apex insulation will handle light snow fall and dries quick. 15d DWR fabric on both sides. Includes an additional closed cell foam pad, upping the ground insulation to ½". Very warm!

Tips

Foam pad(s) are easily removed and carried on your pack. The bivy can then be compressed with care, like any high-end down product, and stuffed in a dog pack or in your pack. The latter is recommended unless you supply a dry bag. 

Most dogs take to this igloo style soft dog house pretty quickly, especially if they are cold already.

Some attention to their situation may be needed during the night: they can leave the bivy and not being able to get back in. Or slide off the pad and settle partially on the canopy. To help with the former use a cord and the loop on the center opening to slightly suspend the entrance. For the latter there are stake loops at the corners which might be useful with a floorless shelter or cowboy camping.
