-- Noted outdoorsman and adventurer Von Leopold announced the launch of a new website offering some of his sought after tips and techniques for using bivy bags (a type of ultra-light tent) for camping and backpacking.
"So many times I've talked to people who complain that the biggest hassle in being able to backpack and hike for any distance is the weight they have to carry" said Leopold. "By using a bivy bag they nether have to sacrifice comfort or safety. But finding the right one is key and this site helps them make an informed decision".
Having just returned from an extended hiking expedition through the deserts of Southern California, Leopold knows what it's like to spend night after night zipped into a bivy bag and how to deal with the weather while using one. He also provides information on dealing with insects and wildlife.
The website http://bivybagz.com/
dealing with bivy bags is free to access and offers anyone who enjoys hiking and backpacking a chance to share some of Leopold's hard won outdoor knowledge.
