As I continue to make plans for a long distance backpacking trip on the AT I am searching for gear that is quality, lightweight and fits my budget. Recently I have been researching whether to purchase a tent or bivy sack. I’m still trying to decide as there are some concerns about the bivy sack such as having room to change clothes in bad weather and heavy rains.
Thanks to backcountry.com for their help. They gave me great insight on the difference between tent backpacking versus bivy sacks.
So what is your preference, tent or bivy sack? Do you have a bivy sack and if so what are your thoughts on using them? If you prefer tents which ones do you recommend or use? I would love your input and feedback so comment below and let’s get a conversation going.
