APPLICATION TO TEST BIBLER WINTER BIVY
- Application to test the Bibler Winter Bivy
Name: Matt Willis
I am a Star Scout from Troop 260 in Oregon. I have been backpacking/car
camping for the past four years. I have over 70 backpacking nights and
have gone backpacking in Washington and Oregon. I have climbed Mt.
Washington (in Washington), Mt. Adams, and have done the Bowron canoe
circuit in B.C. Currently I have my pack down to ~25lbs in the winter
and ~20lbs in the summer. For my shelter I currently use the Black
Diamond Betamid, a floorless tent. Before that I used the REI Soloite
and the REI Clipper.
I would be a good tester for the Bibler Winter Bivy because I live in
Oregon and I am very familiar with rain and I'm always looking for a
new way of staying dry. I have never used a bivy but I have always been
wanting to use one. Even though this is summer time it still rains in
the valley in Oregon, which averages 35 to 50 inches of rain a year.
Most of my outings are on the coast, though, where it averages ~120
inches of rain a year so there would be no problem with not being able
to test the bivy in wet conditions. The temperatures are in the 70's
and 80's now but every few days it's in the low 60's.
I have read the BGT survival guide,version 0302.2, and I agree to
comply with all of the testing and reporting requirements.
I have posted the following owner reviews:
Black Diamond Betamid tent
REI Polar Pod sleeping bag
Thanks for considering me.
