Tyvek Sleeping Bag Cover

or Ground Sheet. For those of you who can’t sew but don’t mind spending US$16.99, Flame’s Creed has this little beauty. It should keep your sleeping bag clean and dry (and only weighs 130 grams apparently). I bought a couple of their ultralight tents and found them to be very good value and quality. You really don’t need to break the bank to have some very good gear.

I know I have threatened to make my own and have come up with a few different designs – one of which, a sub 100 grams bathtub I actually used for a few years), but one of these cheap Chinese ones should see you well for quite some time until I do actually finalise the design for a bathtub floor/chair/lounger etc. Looks cosy doesn’t it? This would work very well with a poncho bivy shelter pitched like this. One of Sea to Summit’s ultra sil nano tarp ponchos which are 265 cm x 145 cm and weigh 230 grams (A$79.90 July 2019) would go very well with this. It is all the shelter you need. Some other suggestion s for bivies to go with ponchos: https://www.theultralighthiker.com/2019/05/30/ultralight-bivy-bag/

Available from Aliexpress here.
