I'm toying with the idea of using a bivy for stealth camping this spring/summer/fall, and was wondering if those here would mind sharing their experience and expertise.
My thought is that for stealthing, a bivy would be a lot easier to set up and conceal than a small tent. I've just ordered a new LHT, and I'm hoping to try some solo S240's this year, and cut back a bit on the amount of gear I schlep. Using a 2 lb bivy and a summer weight bag might be a step in the right direction.
On a related note, a local surplus store has these Chinook Summit bivy's for sale , and I wondered if anyone had any experience with them. The price seems reasonable, and at a glance, they seem to be reasonably well made, but I can't find much in the way of reviews.
Thanks in advance to all!
