Thought I'd share this whit you guys, if anybody's into hiking or being lightweight this is a great idea!


Basically it's a Backpack - waterproof and all, with a build in Bivy to sprout right out its opening! Though a bit pricey I think it's a brilliant idea, and it's made by a traveller!

It's a neat idea and I like it, though it seems a little gimmicky. Be wary of kickstarter projects in general. A significant portion of the time it's a person with a neat idea who wants money and doesn't intend on delivering.

I wonder how much of the normal backpack you can utilize for the bivy without losing functionality of the backpack. From the video it almost seems as if you are lying right in the backpack, if so you would have to take your stuff out of the pack. I can not really see much that you could use on a backpack to build a bivy. Maybe you could safe a little bit of weight on the bivy if you use the top part of the backpack as the end part of the bivy, but the weight cut wouldn't make up for the less flexibility in my eyes. Plus the bivy is only waterproof with a rainjacket. That there is a mosquito net and tent poles on it is cool though. Would love to see one in person.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $150.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
