Many years ago, Wiggys was asked by a member of the Mazama climbing club (the oldest in the country) if they could make a bivi bag with an insulated top. Wiggys made them a product that was used successfully on a climb of several mountains in South America. Then, with a few minor changes, the Marines ordered and tested the bivis in Norway. The results were all of a positive nature. That success led to a call from the Air Force and they requested a multitude of changes. The end result is what Wiggys now produces with one exception: the forward wind flap. That came about because of a local individual.
The culmination of three years of development produced the most efficient single-person shelter available. The top section over the body of the shelter is insulated, and therefore can be used without a sleeping bag in mild conditions, plus 45 degrees Fahrenheit and higher. When used together with any Wiggy bag, you can expect an additional 20 degrees lower than the bag is rated. The bottom and pop-up tent area are waterproof 200-denier-coated oxford nylon. The chest section is insulated with our exclusive Lamilite L-6. It is vapor permeable, not waterproof. (All so-called waterproof bivi bags have shown they have condensation buildup). General rain and snow activity does not penetrate.
Other features include an Easton aluminum shock corded pole, built in stuff sack (12 inches by 15 inches), and steel stakes. The pop-up hood stands 24 inches high and the whole thing weighs 2.25 pounds. There is also a waterproof cover to cover the body of the bivi when you encounter heavy rain.
