View Full Version : Tired of the Bivi

I hunted out of a bivi last year and I had a few problems.

I was comfy all right and it kept the wind and rain off of me, but I could not keep my gear dry and I still had the traditional condensation problems.

I am looking at the paratipi as it can take the little stove. I think that might help dry out my gear and it looks like I could stow my gear under the fabric.

Question: Does the para stove have to be centered in the tent? Could it be placed off center to allow one a bit more room to sleep solo inside?

Thanks in advance.

IIRC it can be placed off center. Not too far, but off center to give a bit more room.

I suppose I need to lay out the footprint on the floor to see just how much room is available. Thanks. Anything will be better than being wet in a bivi!
