Weighing just over a pound and made with an eVent shell, the Rab Ascent Bivy will keep you dry on unplanned nights out or ultralight trips, even when the weather is some of the worst you'll encounter. The 3-layer eVent membrane repels wind, rain, sleet, and snow, but is also air permeable, which allows perspiration and moisture vapor to escape the ePTFE membrane, so you stay dry from both the inside and out. Rab gave the Ascent a wide sleeping bag profile to accommodate sleeping bags of all shapes and sizes, and added a removable no-see-um mesh zip door so you can let off a little steam or take a peak to see what that noise on the edge of camp (don't worry, it's probably just a bear).

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
