Why We Like The Ridge Raider Bivy

When we want the convenience and speed of a bivy but want that little extra to keep the roof of your head, curl up inside the Rab Ridge Raider Bivy and enjoy a night of restful slumber. Waterproof Pertex fabric and a laminated bathtub base combine with fully taped seams to help keep you extremely dry through any and all manner of downpour. A single aluminum pole gives you a bit of head space for reading or checking out the map of your next day's adventure. An external pole sleeve makes setup easy, and a mosquito net door lets you get some ventilation in hot, buggy climates.

Weak supporting pole of Rab Ridge Bivy

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 7"

First, let me say that the customer support of backcountry is incredibly good, supportive & understanding. The supporting pole that raises the canopy directly above the entry / exit snapped on my 1st attempt to put the Bivy together as a test run. The dimensions allowing the pole to be inserted / released - in / from the side hole/eye (outside the bivy proper) are so tight, one has to apply so much force. The result is snapping of the pole. I hope Rab will introduce Rab Ridge Bivy II soon with a slightly expanded dimensions that allows the easy insertion & release of the canopy's supporting pole. Otherwise , it's an incredible product ! Second, a shout out to the Rab's support & service team for their awesome response in replacing the broken pole. However, I had to return the Bivy back to Backcountry out of fear that the same experience would repeat (thus the two stars) on my 3 months out of country trip. Didn't want to take a chance. P.S. the same snapping experience is also described by one experienced British camper who (wrote a thorough & long review of the product) also suggested to Rab that the dimensions should also be slightly altered allowing the easier insertion & release of the pole.
