Ways to use the Hilleberg Bivanorak

- Portable Windbreak/Emergency Shelter - all in one
Use as a Bivy Bag / Sleeping Bag Cover
The Bivanorak is cut long and wide to provide room for both a sleeping bag and pad in bivy bag mode. Its lower hem and cuffs have drawcords (those in the cuffs are elastic) which can be secured shut to keep warmth in and rain and snow out, and its long front zipper makes entry and exit easy.
The large hood will easily accommodate the hood of a sleeping bag, yet it can be cinched tightly around your face.
Combine a Hilleberg Bivanorak and Tarp to create a highly effective and incredibly lightweight shelter system.
