The StarRider is the mesh partner to the Bivouac. The StarRider is perfect for desert backpacking and when paired with the CMT Tarp it can be effective even in rainy weather. The star rider is similar to the bivouac 1.5 but it’s all mesh on a silicone impregnate nylon bathtub floor. Weighing only 1lb 4 oz its even lighter than the bivouac and when teamed up with The MTN STICK its the perfect duo for backpacking. The combination of the CMT tarp and the star rider is excellent for high humidity areas and concerns of precipitation. Using a mesh tent allows you to see 360° while you’re in camp for added security. Watch the stars and keep an eye on your camp.
