2 Go Systems V3 Trifecta – Thermal BIVVY *Blanket* Canopy
The V3 TRIFECTA “Patent Pending” was specifically designed for flexibility and can be used as a Thermal Blanket, a BIVVY, or a Canopy. It is made out of Tyvek 1460C or “spun-bonded Olefin” ultra-soft material blocking 98% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, is tear resistant, water resistant, and breathable. The material has high durability to weight ratio making it the perfect material for the Trifecta.
Standard Version – Measures “35.4 inches (90cm)” by “87.7 inches (223cm)” in its zipped BIVVY configuration
“70.8 inches (180cm)” by “87.7 inches (223cm)” in its unzipped Canopy/ Blanket configuration.
XL Version – Measures “54 inches (137cm)” by “87.7 inches (223cm)” in its zipped BIVVY configuration
“107.8 inches (274cm)” by “87.7 inches (223cm)” in its unzipped Canopy/ Blanket configuration.
We added two zippers with both an inside and outside zipper for even more flexibility and ease of zipping the BIVVY once inside.
The inside has an aluminum coating to reflect back the radiant heat given off by one’s body.
We added 9 tie down loops – 3 on each edge and 3 in the center for the standard version
13 tie down loops 5 on each edge and 3 in the center for the XL version.
The V3 TRIFECTA has many functions:
Alone as a thermal sleeping bag
As a thermal BIVVY with a traditional sleeping bag
Tarp / Canopy
As a reflective tarp “reflective side out” in hot climates to reflect the radiant heat from the Sun and help keep you cooler.
Easy to pack and very light. This is a must for any Emergency or Backpacking kit.

When using the Trifectas tie-outs, the material that the Trifecta is made out of has a max tensile strength of about 40 pounds.
It is not recommended to put any more than 25 to 30 lbs. of constant tension on the tie-outs. It does not stretch, so there will be little warning or indication when a few threads snap before it fails. You can easily have a taut tarp with 10 to 15 lbs. of tension.
It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to have shock cord on the tie outs to absorb accidental trips over lines, wind gusts etc. This is especially true with the XL version if using as a tarp.
The temp rating on the Trifecta can be subjective and be ranging, depending on if you’re using it all the way zipped up, in a hammock, or by your body type etc., In a test, the Trifecta gained 18 degrees Fahrenheit from the outside ambient air temperature with the Trifecta mostly zipped closed in temperatures ranging from 0f to 50f. For example, if it’s 45f outside, the inside of the Trifecta will be about 63f.
