The Mountain Hardwear Conduit SL Bivy is a well designed, breathable, waterproof, all weather shell for your sleeping bag (NOTE: The bag is breathable to an extent. It is designed to transfer the moisture given off by your BODY, not your mouth. You can typically exhale over a liter of water each n... Read More

    I wanted to like this, but it was too small for me. I'm 5 foot 10 inches, 170 pounds. When I got in the bivy with my Neoair xtherm sleeping pad and my Kelty Cosmic 0 degree sleeping bag, the sleeping bag was too compressed. That's not the most high end sleeping bag, since it uses 550 fill down. If you had a high end 850 fill bag that took up less space, maybe you'd be fine. But it was too tight for me.

    Tried this bivy out on a winter camping/mountaineering trip. First night was -10F in a tent. Bivy performed well adding warmth and saving my sleeping bag from a water bottle leak on the tent floor. Second night in a newly built quincy with fine layers of snow causing wet conditions in sleeping area, bivy performed well again. I remained dry from the inside and out=breathable+waterproof. Zippers are slightly sticky, but well-made. Packs well, less than a pound, a great asset for the price.

    I picked this bivy up from STP in July for a multi-day trip in the Smokies. It's my first bivy so don't have much to compare it too but it kept me dry through a torrential downpour the first night. I went light and just had the bivy and an old rainfly, which sadly proved to have seen better days and was more of a showerhead than a rainfly. Water just beaded up on the bivy and rolled off. Nice!

    It's lightweight and seems rugged enough. I put my sleeping bag and matress inside and put it right on the ground. Have used it in the Smokies and on the Pinhoti trail now with no problem.

    It is a bit snug for me. It's a tight fit to get it over my women's size 14 butt but it's so light compared to a tent that I'm not complaining. And as another reviewer said, don't cover your face and breath in to it. It can't vent out that much moisture and you'll end up with a lot of condinsation on the inside of the bag.

    I've been wanting a bivy for years now. Mountain Hardware has been a reputable and reliable manufacturer, and the price was excellent.

    Reminds me of the original proto-type gore-tex bivy that was given to me by a Camp 7 rep in 1979. Simple and light and waterproof. All you need and nothing more.

    When that original finally fell apart, I started looking for a new bivy. Almost everything on the market is over designed and over engineered to the point of absurdity. This results in high prices and too much weight.

    Since I'm a cheapskate, and I'm lazy as well, this one sucked me in for a look.

    They over engineered this one too, but you can fix that with sharp scissors and seam glue, and a little time.

    This thing is three and a half ounces lighter if you cut out the ridiculous extra zipper on the inside, and is nicely waterproof if you then use Aqua-Seal to permanently seal the bottom 2/3 of the "waterproof" zipper.

    This bivy now lives in my pack as emercency gear, and will be (already has been) used as a minimal high camp for summer and fall trips with no sleeping bag.

  • “I've never used a bivy--exactly how does it keep rain out, considering it's open on one end?”
    Asked by hikerbilly from Brentwood, TN on 9/3/2012 12:00:00 AM
    • The Bivy is contracted of waterproof material, but like you said the face opening could let rain in. I often throw my rain jacket over the opening and sleep under trees with low hanging branches. More often then not I never get wet. I hope this helps. Keep in mind some bivy's zip completely closed, so that's also an option.

  • “will a thermarest neoair all season mattress fit inside?”
    Asked by bob from Unknown on 8/26/2012 12:00:00 AM
    • I put my Klymit STATIC V Ultralight Camping Sleeping Pad (72" x 23") inside it last week. Plenty long enough. It was a bit narrow at the foot of the bivy for it but it worked fine. If you've got the small or medium you'll be good. If you've got the large (25" wide) it's going to be too wide at the bottom and you'll have to sort of curl it up the sides.

About Mountain Hardwear

Starting back in 1993, a small group of outdoor industry mavericks broke away from the pack to follow a less-traveled path. From the very beginning, the primary goal of Mountain Hardwear was to create an outdoor gear brand with a sharp focus on technology-driven design, superior performance and hardcore reliability. The result of this function-first mentality has been an array of incredible Mountain Hardwear jackets, clothing, tents, backpacks, sleeping bags and accessories. Today, after more than two decades of industry-leading innovation, Mountain Hardwear continues to set new benchmarks for dependability in the toughest conditions on the planet.
