Rab Ascent Bivi Detailed Specification
The Rabi Ascent Bivi in olive is a simple shelter, offering total weather protection for one person. When packed and stowed it’s small and light enough to carry wherever you go – whether you’re climbing a mountain, or simply have it as back up on a long hike.
A velcro flap covers the zip which zips over the hood, rather than across which means you’re completely sealed from the elements – rain or snow! The zip also covers the zip-out mesh net.
When packed down the Ascent Bivi is incredibly small at 5″ x 10″ and weighing only 0.63kg. Despite it’s small pack size, there’s enough room to accommodate non-technical sleeping bags which most people have, and you’ll likely still have a bit of room inside for some kit too.
Rab Ascent Bivi Protection
Protection is offered via a 3-layer 40d eVent Fabric which is fully waterproof, breathable and very lightweight ensuring you can take protection wherever you decide to stay the night.
A webbing loop at the top of the entrance allows you to hook the entrance open if you’d like half-cover, which is really handy as the mesh door allows air to circulate throughout reducing the amount of condensation build up within the sleeping area, and also keeps the bugs out. As always the Rab Ascent Bivi is practical whether you’re camping in the British countryside or on a foreign alpine trip.
