The USGI Military Sleep System Bivy Sack or Bivy Cover is one of the most valuable pieces of survival and camping equipment available. Staying warm and dry is important in all conditions when it comes to enjoying or even surviving the outdoors. The Military Issue Bivy Cover, issued NSN: 8465-01-416-8517, works admirably in this area.

This U.S. Military Issue Bivy Cover was originally designed for the modular sleep system which includes a warm weather and cold weather sleeping bag, compression sack and this bivy.  The bivy is the outer cover that keeps the whole system dry.  However, this bivy will work just fine with other sleeping bags or with nothing at all.  We recommend this to our clients who simply want to have a way to stay dry and moderately warm in an emergency situation.  Combine it with either a sleeping bag or a Wet Weather Poncho Liner, also offered by Best Glide ASE, and you have a great combination.

Our Military Issue (Woodland Camouflage) Modular Sleep System Bivy Covers are divided into four categories: New/Like New, Very Good, Used and Fair/Repairable. See below for a description of each.

New/Like New - This means the Bivy Cover was received by us still in its original packaging, with its original tags attached or no visible signs of use could be found.  In many cases, an item looks new and unused upon inspection, but to be sure, it is included in the Very Good Category.  In this condition, there may be slight dust or creases in the Bivy due to storage by the Military.

Very Good - The item either appears to be in unused condition or has slight marks that show it was either issued and stored or was used several times at the most.  There will be no tears or rips in the fabric and all zippers and Velcro will be in fully functional condition.  The coloring will be in very good shape.  There may be dust on or folds in the fabric showing where it may have been stored for an unknown period of time.  If there are any apparent repairs, they are in this category if it is evident they were done either by the military or by the manufacturer and brought back to new specifications.

Used - This includes everything else, while still assuring that the Military Issue Bivy Cover is fully functional.  There will be no rips or tears in the material.  However, there could be some slight discoloration or signs that the Bivy Cover has been used.  In short, it is fully functional but will not look new.  There may also be signs of minor wear.  However, again, in this condition the Bivy Cover is fully functional and will do everything it was designed to do when new.

Fair/Repairable - This category includes a Bivy that may have minor rips, tears or holes in it.  This category may also include a Bivy with signs of frequent use, though no holes, rips or tears are present.  In all cases, these items can be repaired with needle and thread, a patch or a very good cleaning.  Some purchase these strictly for use as repair material or to make something else from the gore tex type material. (Note: See our selection of Tenacious Repair Tape (search "repair tape" if considering this option.)
