ALPS Mountaineering introduces the Stealth Bivy

New Haven, Missouri – ALPS Mountaineering, maker of performance-driven gear for wilderness adventures, scouting and family camping, expands its lineup of shelters for 2024 with the launch of the new Stealth Bivy. Designed for the minimalist backpacker, the Stealth Bivy combines durable, ultralight construction with built-in features to make bivouacing comfortable and convenient.

The Stealth Bivy is made from a durable, waterproof and breathable fabric with a heavy ground. All seams are fully taped to withstand the harshest weather conditions, while invisible mesh vents over the head and foot offer maximum ventilation to keep out bugs and minimize condensation.

A key feature of the Stealth Bivy is its clever stepped design. The longer run of the covered zipper is designed to eliminate the need for the user to crawl across wet ground and slide down to the shelter. It also allows for easier and more comfortable dressing and undressing during your adventure.

Integrated into the Stealth Bivy is an innovative support system consisting of two one-piece fiberglass poles. These allow for quick setup and, when used in conjunction with the included aluminum triple stakes and pre-tied tie down points, keep the bivy taut for optimal clearance, ventilation and rigidity even in windy conditions.

Because ounces equal pounds when backpacking, the Stealth Bivy was designed for the light, adventurous adventurer. The bivy set weighs just 1 lb. 12 oz. (add 4 oz. for bivy and stake bags) and stores easily in your backpack.

For bivouac fans, the new ALPS Mountaineering Stealth Bivy is the ultralight, ultra-comfortable shelter you’ve been waiting for.
