Reviews of Blackwolf Stealth Bivy Camo Hiking Tent
Blackwolf Stealth Bivy Camo Hiking Tent(1) By: Mick on 10 May 2017I LOVE tent world, i do belive you should consider removing this product from sale however! Things that I love about this gear are, the size and ease in which the tent can be put up. It is quick! I just wish I had considered adding a few more grams to my pack just for the comfort of being dry in the morning. We are not talking about drops of water in the morning either, my pack sleeping bag and mattress were wet! I am Sorry, but the biviy hiking tent is a massive fail! You don't buy a hiking tent to wake up wet! I could have use a ground sheet and tarp at least I would have been drier! Mick NSW.
Tentworld ResponseHi Mick, thanks for your love and for your review of this item. In humid conditions, what most who use bivvys do is use their rain coat to create a small tarp cover over the head area. This allows you to continue to well ventilate your bivvy in all weather conditions. It's also much less claustrophobic! Hope this helps! Cheers, Tentworld Team.
Blackwolf Stealth Bivy Camo Hiking Tent(1) By: James on 15 April 2016This is a great bivy if you like waking up wet. Ventilation is not adequate to manage condensation. With the roof flap open, this problem is reduced. Your torso may stay dry but your legs will still get wet. Furthermore in even the slightest shower, you need to close this flap (because it's in the roof), so you're left with a choice to either get wet from the rain, or get wet from condensation. The first one I received had a problem where the fabric could not stretch over the pole at the foot end without damaging the seam on the sleeve. I returned this one under warranty. The replacement was able to stretch over the pole, however now after 4-5 uses, this seam has started to show signs of damage also. On the plus side, the bivy is cheap and it is light/compact, but I wouldn't bother. Save yourself $150 to put towards a better product.
Tentworld ResponseUnfortunately, it is the case that all small tents can suffer from condensation in high humidity and raining conditions. The only way to avoid that really is to buy a larger, heavier tent, with more air space and more ventilation options. However, you're then not getting the benefits of an ultra light weight bivvy..... Unfortunately with all hiking gear, there are compromises to be made in order to achieve desired weight reductions. The compromise with the bivvy is that it does not perform well in high humidity, or with low ventilation. But many will choose to get a little wet from condensation than to be laying in the rain. It's about measuring what you're comfortable with, and what you're prepared to accept to get the gear weight you're wanting. Hope this helps clarify what bivvys are good for, and what they're not. Happy Hiking! Cheers, Tentworld Team.
