When going on a hiking trip, you know that after a long day of walking and climbing, there’s still a tent that will need setting up. If your feet are tired and aching, you are more than likely going to want to just lie down and sleep. However, laying down without any protection from creepy crawlies, weather, or temperature could have you waking up feeling worse than before you went to sleep.
If setting up a tent is not something you prefer to do, why not just wear it instead? The Bivanorak, better known as the Minimalist Shelter, has shock cords and locks in the hood, cuffs, and hem so that you can cinch yourself inside. If you’re claustrophobic, this may be a poor choice for an outdoor covering, but to anyone else, this would be quite useful. It’s big enough for your pack to fit inside of, and has a long zipper in the front so you can have proper ventilation. During the day, you can simply pull the hem up to your waist and turn it into a jacket of sorts. It will cost you $185, and you can choose from green and red as your color choices.
