About this deal

It has a lot of stray dogs, which I anticipate having to fend off not infrequently with pepper spray in the middle of the night if I am sleeping in the Oex Bush Pro. This is a great product and I have been using this for a number of years on multiday hikes in the wild.

It offers good protection from the elements, although it may be a bit heavy for those looking for a truly lightweight shelter.The OEX Salamanda Bivi Bag offers a comfortable middle ground, providing the familiarity of a tent with the compactness of a bivi bag.

It packs down to a compact size of 43 x 11 x 11 cm, making it easy to carry in your backpack without taking up too much space. With a 5000mm HH flysheet and a 7000mm HH groundsheet, the bivi bag offers excellent protection from rain and damp ground. I would still choose a mid+inner over tarp+bivvy though, because I find enclosed bivvys claustrophobic and if they have mesh uppers mosquitoes will still annoy you anyway.

Google Earth is the best tool for planning IMO, you can draw on routes to export to a mapping app on your phone (I use OSMand with downloaded contours for hiking and MAPS. His love for the great outdoors began at a young age, and over the years, he's traversed some of the most challenging terrains and scenic trails around the world. A: A bivy sack can add a few degrees of warmth by trapping body heat, but the exact amount can vary depending on the design and material of the bivy sack. The OEX Salamanda Bivi Bag also includes a zip opening with midge mesh, keeping those pesky insects at bay while you sleep. This has particularly been true over the last 12 months when I have not wanted to be tarnished by association with the Covid fly camping fraternity.
