Exped Bivy Poncho UL
Exped Bivy Poncho UL. As functional as a Swiss Army Knife. Exped Bivy-Ponchos provide full rain and wind protection and double as bivy bag or tarp. They are compact, lightweight and durable. One size fits all as they can be shortened. The Bivy Poncho UL is the lightweight version, and comes with fully taped seams.
- Used as Bivy Bag: double sided snaps permit the poncho to be sealed on all sides resulting in a waterproof bivy bag.
- Used as Tarp: one or more ponchos can easily be snapped together and set up as a waterproof A-Frame tent or tarp. 8 loops enable multiple setup options as sun, rain, and wind shelter.
- Anatomically shaped hood with brim that follows head movement for full visibility.
- Snap buttons allow the full length of the side to be closed.
- Snaps for length adjustment.
