Product Description

Product Description

Integral Designs' "fast and light" gear system is designed for self-propelled adventurers taking short-duration trips into the outdoors, and the Salathe Tegraltex bivy is a perfect case in point. Designed specifically for climbers and backpackers, the technical bivy is appropriate for both summer and winter use, with a top fabric that rolls down to provide added ventilation on warm evenings.


The Backcountry Tegraltex bivy features a top fabric that rolls down for warm evenings.
The Salathe is made from Integral's Tegraltex, a trilaminate fabric that's waterproof and wind-resistant. As a result, the bivy is terrific for both snow caves and exposed locations, with a weather-tight design that helps you stay warm and dry. The bivy is also flexible enough for use while sitting up, letting you cook a meal upright while staying cocooned, dry, and tied in. The features add up to a bivy that's the most versatile and technical shelter in the "fast and light" line.

The bivy is named for John Salathe, who started climbing at the age of 45. Two years later, Salathe and Anton Nelson pioneered Yosemite-style climbing by doing the first base-to-summit ascent of the Lost Arrow Spire, with four nights of bivys.



The bivy's Tegraltex trilaminate fabric is waterproof and wind-resistant.
The Salathe bivy pays tribute to this bold climb. Certainly John Salathe wished he'd had this piece of gear before spending several uncomfortable nights on the renowned big wall route. As with all Integrated Designs bivys, the Salathe carries a lifetime warranty.

Explaining Tegraltex Fabric
Tegraltex is Integral's own trilaminate fabric, which consists of a microporous PTFE membrane that's laminated to an outside layer of 1.6-ounce ripstop nylon (treated with Teflon DWR water repellent) and an inner layer of non-woven Nexus. The result is a three-ply material that is highly vapor permeable, waterproof, and wind-resistance. The key to the performance of Tegraltex is the middle layer of tetratex PTFE membrane, which is made with Teflon. The micropores in the membrane allow water vapor (perspiration) to pass through and out of the fabric at a rate of up to 1 liter per square yard every 24 hours. The same microporous structure acts as a barrier to droplets of rainwater, which are too large to penetrate the pores of the Tetratex PTFE membrane. The end result is a fabric that--according to Integrated Design's research--is more durable and vapor permeable than any equivalent polyurethane trilaminate.

Great Bivy. Was warm and dry. I am 6'3 and there is plenty of room for me. Zipper screen allows exhaled breath to escape, keeps from moisture building up on the inside. Wish there was a better color
