USMC Improved Bivy Cover Rain Test

Used military surplus can really be a mixed bag of total awesome and total junk. We were lucky to have picked up two USMC Improved Bivy Covers a good while back.

We decided to wash them with Nikwax Tech-wash https://amzn.to/2Zxvx0k and used the Nikwax Wash-in waterproofing along with the Nikwax Spray on waterproofing https://amzn.to/2XC3eMk . Testing them in North Carolina thunderstorms in early spring gives us a good gauge as to how well the treatment worked.
