The Wisp 1P "Super Bivy" tent is well suited as a bivy replacement. Think of it as a "super bivy" since the Wisp is totally enclosed to escape bugs and mosquitoes, it is also big enough to be able to sit up in and change clothes when it is raining, which is impossible to do with a bivy. Another bonus is the Wisp has a covered vestibule that a bivy does not have to store pack and footwear out of the weather.

- Perfect for the ultra light backpacker or bikepacker
- Single hiking pole design for very fast and easy setup and take down

Based on 3 reviews
I'm satisfied with the product.

The soul2 I bought before had seam processing, but the wisp I bought this time didn't have seam processing.

The name ‘super bivy’ is a spot-on description of this.

Big Sky Wisp Super-Bivy | Review
The bivy that really lives up to it's 'Super' credentials

Michael N.
Compares favourably with the alternatives

This bivvy is lighter, more stable and suffers less condensation than more fully featured tents (specifically, the Hilleberg Enan, which I have used and which collapses if 1 tent peg loosens); at a fraction of the price the Wisp is not just excellent value. For lightweight backpacking, it is the better option.


Ask a Question
  • What size pole can be used? I have a 45" ski pole i use how will it fit?

    Big Sky's Wisp 1P tent was designed for a 120cm (47in) pole so a 45in pole is a little short... the 45in ski pole may work with a little sag in the tent or you could cut a piece of PVC pipe to add to bottom of your pole to make it 47in (120cm) long...

    We now offer a 120cm pole for those that do not carry adjustable trekking poles with them.

  • Hello! Is there a tent pole option for those of us who don’t use trekking poles? Are guy lines included with the purchase? When is the 1.5P version be available in 2019? Is there a Cuben Fiber version of this tent, and what are the specs? Thank you.

    Yes, we now have a optional 120cm tent pole for those that do not carry/use adjustable trekking poles.

    Many of our customers already have stakes/pegs and/or guy lines so they are an option to keep the tent price lower for those that do not need them. Those that need them and purchase stakes/pegs and/or guy line kits with a tent receive a 15% discount when combined with a tent purchase.

    Not sure when, or if, Wisp 1.5P tent will be available...  There may or may not be a Dyneema Composite Fabric (DCF) version offered.

  • 1.5p/2p version?

    Sorry, at this time we only have a 1Person (1P) version...

  • Hello Do the pegs come with this tent? And if so what is the individual weight per peg please?

    Most of our customers already have pegs/stakes so we have made buying pegs/stakes an option so you do not have to pay for them if you do not need them.

  • Are guy lines needed for this one?

    All Big Sky's tents can be set up without guy lines.

    That said, guy lines add quite a bit of structure and increased wind resistance for not a lot of extra weight.
