The Outdoor Research Helium Bivy is a minimalist shelter for solo adventurers. Because if it gets any bigger they'd just call it a tent. This ultralight shelter is made from Pertex® Shield+ 2.5L fabric, a 100% nylon with a floor that is tougher than the upper, for longevity and protection. The single pole creates enough space so your face isn't stuck up against the fabric and you can start catching z's with the no-see-um mesh exposed on warmer nights, watching the stars. In wetter weather, zip the whole thing up for waterproof protection throughout the night. Nobody wants their head getting rained on while they sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best per ounce bivy in the industry. Alpine and desert Lightweight and best protection in the industry per ounce carried. I use it both in the Canadian Rockies and southern US deserts. Very packable. and of course the weight speaks for itself. I heavier product might be more breathable, but with bivies you just manage the zipper at your head regarding condensation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basecamp Used in most adverse hypothermia conditions possible in Pacific Northwest - strong winds, torrential rain, snow on ground. Stayed warm, dry, and no condensation. Rigged a lightweight tarp overhead for staying dry, gear, cooking etc and keeping dog dry. A perfect combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient This bivy is very convenient and comfortable. Very easy to set up and the mesh can prevents from mosquito bites. So I would recommend this product for all solo campers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely what you need for shelter I used this for a few trips in the North Cascades, it worked great! it's super small and light to carry in your pack when climbing and provides all of what you need in a shelter for the night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so good So far slept in this bivy bag 6 nights, and the last night it rained for a few hours, hard at times. I stayed dry. THe only design flaw I see is that the pole only keeps the fabric off your face when everything is zipped up. If you want the bug mesh zipped and the rain-layer open then the mesh lays on your face. Plenty roomy for my size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bivy bag!! I purchased this bag and took it Climbing in the Rocky Mountains.initially I was afraid it was going to be not enough however it exceeded my expectations. Bivied at the base of Mt Jofre an 11,000 + feet peak. we BV just at the base of the glacier with winds of around 80-100 km/h however while inside of the bag I had no problems with condensation, and setting it up was very easy and fast. We also had some light rain during the night and it didn't affect me at all. And my sleeping bag is only a -7. I honestly think that I had even a better night that the rest of my group that was sleeping on a descent tent. Another pro was definitely the light weight, just over 500 g. Can't beat that!!!! My only concern , reason why only 4 stars, is that the the part of the bag that rests on top of the rocks is the same thin material as the whole bag and I'm concerned that some rocks could easily damage it . It would be nicer ,in my opinion, if the base was made of a slightly stronger material or if there was a footprint to protect it. Overall, a great bag, very light that I will not only carry for BV's but also as an emergency shelter in case needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent so far i rated it at a "4" because I've only used a half dozen times but it has been flawless. Pro's: lots of room, breathed well in semi-humid conditions, packs up really small, waterproof, pole works great, cheap! Con's: I see the 2.5 layer not breathing as well as its 3 layer counterparts once the cold weather camping starts up but cannot say for sure, almost too roomy/ or baggy.

How does this bivy cut wind?

Asked by: Sophia12
Hey Sophia, thanks for the question! The bivy's fabric is waterproof and windproof (but breathable), so wind will not get inside the bivy but hot air can escape. It has five stake loops and one guy line loop to help hold it down in the wind. I hope this helps!

Really like this bivey but how do you get the arch pole to stand up once you pull it through the fabic inserts, Not sure if Im doing something wrong but mine keeps falling over/down against the bbivey. Please advise.

Asked by: Tawa70
Hello Tawa70, thanks for your question! After you feed the pole through the fabric, there will be two velcro tabs on each side to insert the ends into. There should be the word "pole" and an arrow pointing to the tab. Once the ends are inserted, the pole should stand up on its own. If not, feel free to reach out to Outdoor Research directly to troubleshoot the issue. You can reach Outdoor Research at 855.967.8197. Good luck!
