This is the latest generation bivy cover used by the United States Marine Corp. This USMC improved bivy cover is an improved version of the popular Woodland or ACU digital bivy cover. This bivy cover is a perfect way to make your current sleeping bag waterproof without adding much weight. In warmer weather, it is great for sleeping under the stars by itself.

Bivy Cover Features and Material

This USMC improved bivy cover is made of 100% Nylon and 100% PTFE (Gortex). It also features black mesh face screens that may have holes, but can be repaired. That said, the face screen would only be necessary if you plan to camp in big time bug country.

How would you recommend washing the bivy?

Not washing it is probably the best bet for longevity. Hose it off and hang dry it out of the sun. Washing waterproof fabrics degrades the DWR (durable water repellant) finish. With a waterproof membrane fabric like this bivy it won't be water permeable without the DWR but it will effect breathability as the outer layer of fabric protecting the inner membrane will saturate with water not allowing the moisture from inside (i.e. your sweat) the bivy to escape and you'll wake up wet from your own moisture. If you have washed the bivy with detergent or it really needs a more thorough cleaning you can retreat the outer DWR coating with a DWR treatment product found at most outdoor stores.
