ALPS Mountaineering Stealth Bivy Now Shipping

ALPS Mountaineering, manufacturer of performance-driven gear for wilderness adventures, exploration, and family camping, expands its backcountry shelter lineup for 2024 with the release of the all-new Stealth 1 bivy tent, now shipping. Designed for the minimalist backpacker, the Stealth 1 combines durable, ultra-lightweight construction with integrated features to make bivouacking comfortable and convenient.

The Stealth 1 is made of a durable, waterproof, and breathable fabric with a heavy-weight floor. All seams are fully taped to withstand the toughest weather, while no-see-um mesh over the head and foot vents offers maximum ventilation to keep bugs out and minimize condensation.

A key feature of the Stealth 1 is its ingenious step-in design. The longer covered zipper path is designed to eliminate the need for the user to crawl across wet ground and slide their way into the shelter. It also allows for easier and more comfortable dressing and undressing while on your adventure.

Integrated into the Stealth 1 is an innovative support system consisting of two one-piece fiberglass poles. These allow quick setup and, when used in conjunction with the included aluminum tri-stakes and pre-tied guy points, keep the bivy taut for optimal space, ventilation, and rigidity even in windy conditions.

Because ounces equal pounds when backpacking, the Stealth 1 was designed for the go-light, go-far adventurer. The bivy assembly weighs a mere 1 lb. 12 oz. (add 4 oz. for the bivy and stake bags) and stows easily into your backpack.

For the Bivouac fan, the new Stealth 1 from ALPS Mountaineering is the ultralight, maximum comfort wilderness shelter you've been waiting for.
