Outdoor Research Helium Bivy Bag

The Outdoor Research Helium Bivy is a real lightweight among bivy sacks or bivouac tents and promises years of reliable service through its quality. The bivy headboard offers more comfort and better weather through the adjustable head section. Especially those who go for long trips and have to pay attention to every ounce of luggage will appreciate this light bivouac.

The Helium bivy bag with a classic shell design is 1.5 pounds “heavy” and thanks to its dimensions of 84 x 26 x 19.5 inches it provides enough space to cuddle up while it rains or snows outside.

Due to its high-quality processed material, the Pertex® Shield + 2.5L, 100% nylon, 30D ripstop, the bivy bag is not only ultralight and extremely tear-resistant, but also wind and water repellent and breathable. Here, Outdoor Research relies on the technically advanced outer material of the British material manufacturer Pertex®, which is known worldwide for its highly functional fabrics. The optimum combination of the state-of-the-art upper with a patented polyurethan laminate ensures protection against wind and water, high levels of breathability and the removal of body moisture. The Hydroseal® floor is made of a robust 70D nylon, is completely waterproof and also has an antifungal coating. The seams are fully taped, which prevents moisture from entering through the seam and drying it faster.

As an added convenience, the Helium bivy by Outdoor Research offers practical attachment straps for the mattress, so you do not slip down while sleeping. The Helium bivi also has five anchor loops, a mesh storage compartment on the inside and a guy loop to attach the headboard to branches or rocks, or to be able to stretch. A no-see-around mesh made of ultrafine tissue was also integrated, so that even the smallest pests can leave you alone. The Outdoor Research Helium Bivy Bag features a simple Delrin® 1 pole system and can be easily and quickly placed anywhere. With its packing dimensions of 12 x 4 in, it fits comfortably into any trekking backpack.
