In the first of a series of weekly competitions, we have a superb Outdoor Research Helium Bivy up for grabs – read on to find out how you can get your hands on it!
The award-winning Helium Bivy is the biggest-selling and lightest shelter offered by Outdoor Research, and now the Seattle-based outdoor brand have made it even better by reducing its weight further and fine-tuning its footprint. Now weighing 14% lighter than its previous version the Helium Bivy is ideal for multiday minimalists who are looking to trade weight for speed, agility, and performance.
The Helium is made out of waterproof/breathable Pertex Shield+ fabric that doesn’t compromise on durability, and has a TPU laminated floor to provide underside protection. It has a no-nonsense clamshell opening, ideal for leaving open to star-gaze from the comfort of your sleeping bag on dry nights. With its pole the Helium weighs just 476g, and without it it’s a mere 417g. If you’ve never enjoyed sleeping out in a bivy before then the Helium is ideal for experiencing it for the first time!
