  • Homemade Ultra Lightweight Bivy Tent For Backpacking

    • 목록
    Well, I finally had the time to get this tent finished. The total weight ended up being 19.3 ounces... not quite the sub 1 pounder that I was hoping for, but not too bad either way. Although I already had a backpacking tent that I was content with, I wanted something more suited for my solo ultra lightweight backpacking trips. I think this new piece of gear will fit the bill perfectly. I chose a simple and basic A-frame design (reminiscent of those old Boy Scout days hehe) partly for ease of construction and also to allow for the independent use of the rainfly as it's own shelter. For those quick overnighters in good weather, the little 5x7 cover functions perfectly as a light backpacking tarp (and weighs about 4 ounces). For bug protection without the threat of rain, the mesh tent can be used alone and weighs in at 14.2 ounces. Not a bad little system if I say so.

    This entire setup was made from scratch with the majority of the materials coming from a tent a was given that was beyond repair. I did however research the cost of purchasing all of the materials new and was surprised to find how inexpensive it was. For this reason, as well as how simple this design was to make, I decided to throw in an instructional video combined with a "how to" article on my blog for anyone wanting to build a similar tent. It really wasn't too hard or time consuming at all (and if I can do it, then anyone can!). As soon as I get these finished I will include the links below. You'll have to kindly bear with me here as I haven't done this before and am just getting this blog started as a way to supplement the content of my channel.

    Anyhow, if you're still reading this (lol) then I just wanted to say thanks for all the support and all of your kind comments my friends! Take good care now!
