Whether on a day tour or during a multi-day alpine tour in the mountains: A Bivi bag is a vital piece of equipment for every mountain climber. Whether you’re bivouacking out of choice and using the bivi bag as a protective cover for your sleeping bag, or if the bivi bag is actually providing critical protection in an emergency – the BIVY SINGLE protects you!
Thanks to the PU coating it is water and dirt resistant. Ortovox have also kept the windproof one-person bivi bag’s bright orange colour: This means you will be spotted more quickly in an emergency situation. The compressed stowaway bag with rolltop also ensures that the BIVY SINGLE takes up as little space as possible in your backpack.
Ortovox came to life when Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. They have since grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
