The Nova Insulated Bivy is for cowboy camping; flat tarp users; any activity in moist and damp conditions; or as an outer shell in a winter setup.
As a one piece bivy/sleeping bag the Nova Bivy is easy and fast to get in and out of, allow sitting activities, and take full advantage of the synthetic APEX insulation. Combined with an advanced waterproof/breathable shell one gets enhanced dew, splash, mist and light drizzle/snow protection. Not suitable for prolonged exposure to direct rain.
During bug season this full coverage bag can be used effectively with a head-net (not supplied) for complete protection.
Designed as a modular piece with a generous fit the Nova Bivy can be used alone for summer time trips; and then layered up with the Nano Liner for the colder seasons. Adding an insulated down or synthetic jacket further expands the possible combinations.
The Bivy is available in 50°F, 42°F or 35°F. The Nano Liner can be had in either 40°F or 30°F. If used correctly the warmest combo (35°F/30°F) should provide reasonable comfort down to negative 5°F. See chart below.
