MLD Soul Side Zip ultralight eVent Bivy
The Soul Bivy Side Zip eVent Bivy by Mountain Laurel Designs can be used directly in the open air without a tarp or tent thanks to the waterproof eVent outer.
I use the Soul Bivy Side Zip in the mountains as well where a tarp or tent can be very hard to set up because there are sometimes no suitable spaces for a tarp. It’s quite an experience to sleep out in the open with the bivy. Ultralight hiking with no tarp or tent!
The bivy is also an ideal emergency bivy to have in a day tour backpack, as it weighs only 295 grams. On a cabin tour, it provides more freedom and in an emergency when the cabin is full, you can sleep very well in the bivy in front of the cabin.
The MLD Soul Bivy Side Zip eVent Bivy has enough room to store all your equipment including backpack and shoes. The head area is larger than in other models. So you can spend the night in the bivy if it rains without getting your equipment wet. The 2010 models have been adapted for the Neo Air and are a bit wider.
The Soul Bivy Side Zip eVent Bivy also has a mosquito net and side zipper. The bivy can be attached to the ground with pegs in stormy weather.
