Review – Multimok Bivymok Hammock
Multimok Bivymok Hammock
The Bivymok is provides a tent mode to the Multimok platform hammock. It comes with a single tent pole, upgraded suspension, bug netting, and rain fly. It’s designed to snap on to the Multimok, but it can also be used on its own as a two-person shelter on the ground. Be sure to read my review on the Multimok to learn more about the basic platform.
The tent itself is a minimalist design with a single arch pole. For ground camping, it requires perimeter stakes to keep the structure working (e.g., it’s not self standing). Inside there is a single loop attached to the tent pole sleeve where you can clip a light or other accessory. The pole sleeve is continuous and makes it easy to slide the pole through. It has a waterproof, bathtub-style floor and inside are two small stash pockets. The kit includes 10 stakes for setting up the tent and rain fly.
When pitched on the ground, the tent easily fit two 20-inch sleeping pads side-by-side. It would be snug, but on par with most two-person shelters (even roomier than some).
