How much does the BD Bipod Bivy pole weigh?...

Posted on

How much does the BD Bipod Bivy pole weigh? Can the bag be used as a regular bivy without the pole? Tossing up between BD hooped bivvy (0.5kg - no side zip) and BD Bipod (1kg - with zip). Can I use the Bipod without pole for mountaineering/emergency?

The pole weighs 84 grams. You can definitely use the bivy without the poles (I have many times). All the pole really does is give you a little head room which can be nice at times.
