3-Season USMC Improved Bivy Cover — NEW w/ Ripped Mesh
This genuine USMC improved bivy cover is part of the US Marine Corps Three Season Sleep System (3S). It is designed to cover the other sleeping bags in the system, making them waterproof and highly insulated.
These are brand new but have a rip in the mesh. This doesn't affect the waterproofing.
- Genuine USMC Issue (NSN#8465-01-574-4005)
- Zippered mesh face screen
- Made in USA
In warmer weather, this bivy cover can be used as a rain shelter and features a mesh above the head allowing the user to see out of the bag. The cover is 88” long and can be used with your own sleeping bags – it does not require the other bags in the system.

Came exactly as advertised. A tear, easily repaired about four inches in the mesh, otherwise pristine condition. It is going to be tested tomorrow in the snow as part of a sleep system I am building from civilian and milsurp items
Like I said in the title, bag is either new or like new, one side of the netting panel was pretty near destroyed. No a huge deal but looking at the reviews before purchase let me to believe that the patch would be less intensive. Great product overall but wanted to keep expectations realistic for future buyers.
This bivy bag is perfect. I'm 6'2" tall and have an extra long sleep pad and sleeping bag. The bivy has plenty of length and is not restrictive in any way. Mine had a small tear in the net but will be easy to fix with some fishing line if I ever decide to hike during bug season. A friend of mine recommended this to me...he was a Marine in Afghanastan, he said they work, need I say any more?
I used some fishing line to patch my mosquito net up and it works almost as good as new. This bivy is the best one available since it’s not full of odors, dirty or moldy.
Besides the Title being a little miss leading (3 season) The bivy cover is 1 of the 3 seasons. The outside cover. Otherwise it is great.
