Aqua Quest West Coast Combo Bivy Tent
The Aqua Quest West Coast Combo Bivy Bag Set is undoubtedly ahead-of-the-line when it comes to ultra-light camping, with the West Coast Combo Set offering you a one-bar bivouac tent weighing just 2,2lbs and a extra tarp for rainy days – the perfect combination. The bivouac tent promises superb ventilation, comfort and maximum interior space, more than any other traditional bivy bag.
The bivouac tent is 90 inch long and at the highest point it measures 40 inch, so you can comfortably sit in it, eat something or change clothes. It provides ample storage space for the backpack or additional luggage. The batwing stiffeners keep the foot area upright for added comfort. Despite its respectable size, the bivy tent with its packing dimensions of 10 x 17 x 4 inch (compressed 9 x 16.5 x 3 inch) fits in every backpack.
Aqua Quest has focused more on the breathability and protection from annoying insects and less on the water-repellent properties. The bivy sack consists of a 3-layer insect-proof mesh. If you want to use the bivouac tent even in rainy weather, you should definitely do this in combination with the attached tarp.
The equipment also includes 6 aluminum pegs, a slightly collapsible aluminum pole and a storage bag. The bottom of the Aqua Quest West Coast Bivy is waterproof and made of double-coated nylon with welded seams.
In the tent there are 2 net pockets and a loop in the upper area for the light suspension. Outside there are loops for rolling up the tent door or you can also use these to hang smaller items within reach.
The tarp measures 13 x 10 ft and has 17 reinforced belt loops on the edge, which allow different deployment options. The manufacturing process uses welded and reinforced seams, as well as a non-toxic double layer of silicone and PU, which gives the tarp its excellent water-repellent properties (hydrostatic water resistance of 20,000 mm). The Tarp can be used not only as a rain cover, but also as a sunscreen.
