About the West Coast Bivy
The West Coast Bivy is a unique product that blends the portability principles of a traditional bivy with the more comfortable interior space of a small tent. The result: a packable and simple-setup shelter that you won’t mind spending some quality slumber time within. Here’s some key numbers for your consideration… Weight: just over 2 lbs. Setup time: 2 minutes. Capacity: 2 people.
A 70D heat-taped and double-coated waterproof tub floor protects you from ground-level moisture, and three walls of durable “no-see-um” mesh make for a well-ventilated interior space. The double-zip entry uses quality YKK zippers, and is amply-sized to allow for easy entry and exit. For complete weather protection, the West Coast Bivy can be paired with one of Aqua Quest’s 100% waterproof performance tarps (Guide Large of Guide Square options available) to form a kit, with stakes and compression straps included to assist with the setup of an ideal, dry campsite.

About Aqua Quest
At Aqua Quest, we are passionate about designing and manufacturing the best waterproof gear – so you can get outside, reconnect with nature, and #LiveYourQuest.
Life is wet, our business is waterproof, and our quest is to keep you and your gear dry. Back in 1994, our founder was faced with a dilemma: either get wet, or get waterproof. Vexed by the lack of products available, he developed his own line of waterproof gear, and the Aqua Quest legend was born. More than two decades later, AQ continues to lead the industry with a global reputation for quality and durability.
Our primary waterproofing method starts with a lightweight and durable RipStop fabric, to which we apply a dual coating of TPU (Thermoplastic PolyUrethane) and either DWR (Durable Water Repellent) or Silicone impregnation. This combination produces a lightweight material strong enough to hold a 66 ft vertical column of water before leaking. All of our products undergo rigorous testing to ensure you receive the most dependable and durable waterproof product available.
From outdoor adventures to wet urban centers, your quest isn’t going to slow down for a bit of water. Our wide range of innovative waterproof products includes backpacks, duffels, tarps, electronics protection, travel accessories, dry bags, camping gear, and more.
COMFORTABLE – Instead of designing the West Coast Bivy to be waterproof, AquaQuest focused on making the largest, most breathable, and most comfortable single pole tent in the world. It is longer, wider, and higher than any traditional bivy, and is ultra breathable with 3 walls of ‘No-See-Um’ insect proof mesh.
100% WATERPROOF KIT OPTION – If it rains when you’re camping, you really need a tarp to be comfortable! Even if you have a fully waterproof tent with a fly, you’ll be trapped inside unless you have a tarp. AquaQuest offers this bivy as part of a 3-pc combo, with their large Guide Sil Tarp, and 4-pc Boa strap set. PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for the West Coast Bivy only.
EASY SETUP, ULTRALIGHT, COMPACT – All you have to do is look at the West Coast Bivy and it will set itself up in 3 seconds flat… if you’re a wizard! If not, it’ll take you around 2 mins. Featuring one lightweight collapsible shock cord aluminum pole and 6 ultralight pegs, and weighing in at only 2.3 lbs (1 kg) for the entire kit. Packed Size = 15 x 5 inch (38 x 13 cm) Compressed = 15 x 3 inch (38 x 8 cm)
EXTRA FEATURES – Batwing stiffeners keep the foot section elevated. Waterproof floor is made from double coated nylon with heat taped seams. 2 internal mesh pockets and external loops for rolling up the mesh door or hanging small items.
LIFETIME WARRANTY – AquaQuest products are backed by a Lifetime Warranty. AQ’s customer service is based in the Pacific Northwest, where they have designed and tested waterproof gear since 1994. See the AQ website or call toll-free for more info: Mon-Fri, 10-5 PST, at 1-844-775-7770.
