Your personal bug bunker.

Consider the Outdoor Research Bug Bivy as your personal fortress against blood-thirsty insects when you're sleeping soundly under a brilliant canopy of stars. This ultra-light bivy lends itself to minimalist backpacking trips where two things are certain: swarms of biting insects and pleasantly clear weather. No-See-Um Mesh facilitates impressive stargazing on cloudless evenings while keeping biting insects from feasting on your slumbering self. Hydroseam (2-layer) floor material and fully sealed seams prevent ground moisture from seeping through and dampening your sleeping bag.

The Bug Bivy retains its structure in blustery conditions, thanks to a Derlin Single Pole system, three stake loops, and two guy line loops. The Derlin Single Pole system is removable for ultralight backpackers shaving every possible ounce of excess weight. Other key features include sleeping pad straps for a secure fit and an internal mesh pocket for stashing small essentials, such as your flashlight or glasses.

Unanswered Question

Can you fit a self-inflating sleeping pad and a sleeping bag in this?

Is this free standing if I do not use the three stake loops and two guy lines? I will most likely be staying indoors and setting it on a bed in cheap places to stay in Madagacar

I'm sorry, it is not. You will need to stake it.

Thank you for the question,
