GORE® Gas Permeable Technology for GORE-TEX Bivy Bags
Soldiers in the field need proper cover when sleeping in cold or wet conditions. GORE® Gas Permeable Technology goes into GORE-TEX Bivy Bags.
These are composed of a waterproof outer shell, which is breathable and gas permeable when fully closed. The GORE-TEX laminate for sleep systems is noticeably lighter and more flexible than conventional waterproof protective covers, so soldiers have less to carry when on the move.
GORE-TEX Bivy Bags have a wide range of applications, depending on the situation. They can be used as a waterproof, compact one-man tent, a sturdy groundsheet, a temporary stretcher or a container for storage or transportation.
