Nemo Escape Pod Bivy

When it comes to backpacking, sleeping under the stars is really the way to go. Not only does it mean that you get to enjoy nature’s panoramic views 24 hours a day, but it means lugging less equipment out into the woods with you. One thing open-air camping doesn’t afford you, however, is safety from pesky bugs. That is where the Nemo Escape Pod comes in.

Super light and paired-down, this bivy is designed to provide shelter to half your body while sleeping at night. Using just a simple inflatable airbeam to raise the sheer netting above your head, it’s easy to pack and amazingly light at just 11 ounces. For rough forest-floors, the bottom of the pod is made with a 30 Denier ripstop nylon while the upper is made from a 15D mesh. Prices start at $120. [Purchase]
