With a little CSS and jQuery magic, we can make a native Bootstrap navbar sticky at the top of the document as you scroll down the page.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery library and Twitter's Bootstrap 3 in the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/css/bootstrap.min.css">

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

2. Create a standard Boostrap navbar.

<nav class="navbar navbar-default" role="navigation">
  <div class="container-fluid">
    <div class="navbar-header">
      <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbar-collapse-main"> <span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span> <span class="icon-bar"></span> <span class="icon-bar"></span> <span class="icon-bar"></span> </button>
      <a class="navbar-brand" href="#"></a> </div>
    <div class="collapse navbar-collapse" id="navbar-collapse-main">
      <ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-right">
        <li><a href="javascript:void(0);">Home</a></li>
        <li><a href="javascript:void(0);">Menu Item #2</a></li>
        <li><a href="javascript:void(0);">Menu Item #3</a></li>
        <li><a href="javascript:void(0);">Menu Item #4</a></li>
        <li><a href="javascript:void(0);">Menu Item #5</a></li>
      </ul>
    </div>
  </div>
</nav>

3. The Javascript to make the navbar sticky after scrolling down the page.

$(document).ready(function(){
  $(window).bind('scroll', function() {
    var navHeight = 300; // custom nav height
    ($(window).scrollTop() > navHeight) ? $('nav').addClass('goToTop') : $('nav').removeClass('goToTop');
  });
});

4. The required CSS to position the navbar.

.goToTop {
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  height: 70px;
  z-index: 1;
}
