Gore tex body is in mint condition.  Nice green color.  Carried only as emergency gear and only used on one overnight.  But...the urethane coated floor has degraded with age, so it has that strange "old tent" smell, and of course is no longer fully waterproof.  That's why it's free.

The floor could be replaced either professionally ($$$) or by someone competent with a sewing machine.  Or one could try to recondition the floor by scrubbing off the old urethane and recoating the floor with a waterproof sealant (instructions on the Internet).  I have no use for a bivy sack any more and am a bit claustrophobic besides.  Therefore, none of the above are worth the money or effort for me.  But might be worth it for someone.

Or if you didn't mind the smell and the not fully waterproof bottom, the bivy could be used as is.

Pickup in Bellevue/Issaquah.

Sunday evening is fine.  I'll be hunkering down from the smoke.  PM'd you.
