Gear Question

I've never had a bivy and I'm wondering...

Posted on

I've never had a bivy and I'm wondering where I would keep my pack. Outside? What if it rains? Will a simple rain cover do the trick?

Find a natural canopy under the trees to store your pack and keep it dry....A rain cover is a good idea,but then you will have to carry extra weight....

Mike makes a good point, but a wet pack and gear weighs more than any rain cover I've ever carried.

Use a trash compactor bag as a packliner instead of using a pack cover. Ultralight and effective.
