    I'm switching/simplifying my shelter system. My dog hates the hammock so I haven't used it in a while. I haven't used the bivy once either so I'd rather sell it and put the money towards my next shelter.

    I do not currently have the stuff sack or rainfly that is usually included. They are packed away in storage in NY but I can mail them to you in June if you really want them for some reason. The rainfly is super tiny and shitty, yr better off getting a bigger and cheap tarp. Includes snakeskins for easy packing (pro tip: fold the snake skins back to catch the rain from dripping down the hammock onto you). Hammock is in good condition, a little minor wear but no gaping tears or holes. Netting has a few tiny snags but not big enough for a mosquito to get through. For more information: click here. Brand new, these hammocks are $175 on Amazon. I'm asking $125, not including shipping. I'm guessing shipping may be $5-15 bucks depending where yr at and how fast ya need it.

    USMC Bivy Sack
    I bought this bag off eBay and never once used it outside. It has a bug net over the face which is a huge upgrade over the older bivys. This bug net has a small tear in the screen, it came like that, and should be easy to repair, either with duct tape or a screen repair kit thing. Coyote brown in color. I made a thread about it here. It's got some really good reviews by some of the members here. I'm asking for $75, not including shipping, which again, should be between $5-15 depending on where yr at and how fast you need it.
    Shoot me a PM if yr interested. Let me know yr zipcode so we can figure out shipping.

    Just curious, why didn't you try out that USMC bivy? You seemed pretty excited about it before!

    Hello! I'm looking to try out one of those bivy bags this Spring, could you please message me if it is still available? I would like to discuss payment/shipping options and also I'm wondering about the condition of the bivy, is the bug netting mostly intact or does it have some rips? I tried to send you a PM but I guess I can't due to your privacy settings, let me know! Love and thanks from Canada!

    @OutsideYourWorld Good question. I ended up snatching a Tarptent for cheap and I like how much more space there is... and it's half the weight of the bivy.

    @ruckrambler Did you read my post? I described the condition of the bivy, it's in great condition. I haven't used it outdoors at all. I bought it off eBay and it looks unused to me, nearly brand new. The mesh net does have two small tears that should be easy to repair. Clear/duct tape or cut up some mesh and glue it on. I'll try to attach some pics soon. I'll PM you too, not airw why you can't PM me? Shouldn't be private? I'll look into that thanks for the heads up.

    Edited cause I'm on my tiny phone with big clumsy thumbs.
