It’s a bivvy that’s all about comfort.
It’s not the kind of bivys you’d see at your local park.
Instead, the new insulating bivies for men’s jackets are made of insulation panels that are made to be folded and stacked.
And they look very good.
But the insulating panels aren’t exactly lightweight.
They weigh around 400 grams.
And that’s just the insulation panels.
And if you need a bigger bivie, you’ll have to pay extra.
“We’ve been looking for something that’s durable, lightweight and easy to put on and take off,” said Michael Johnson, senior product manager at Bespoke Bivy.
The company has a patent for a similar product, but it’s still a work in progress.
And the company’s not done testing.
So for now, Johnson said, the company is offering the new products as a testbed for potential competitors.
The insulation bivied, which Johnson described as “a new breed of bib,” features a new folding system and a new type of fabric.
It also includes a new collar.
And the company has made the product available to men who don’t want the traditional bib.
“We want to make sure that it’s the right fit for the right person,” Johnson said.
The bivying is also meant to be more efficient than a traditional bivouac.
“It’s a new technology,” Johnson explained.
The design has been inspired by the work of Italian designer Giancarlo Mazzanti, who used the fabric as a textile and also as insulation.
