Exped Bivybag Duo in the Whistler backcountry

We had the Bivybag Duo on a backcountry ski outing at Whistler this past Monday. Although it's late May, the sun went behind the clouds and the wind came up - time for a little bit of shelter. Bivybag Duo is superlight and makes a tight package when stowed in it's stuff sack. It can be used as a poncho, an emergency bivy bag for one or two people, as well as a quick and convenient shelter from rain and wind at a rest stop. Use it for paddling, hiking, backcountry skiing, snow-machining, mountain biking - anywhere that being stuck overnight is a possibility.

But we like it mostly for rest stops in cold places.
