Bivvy Bag

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

if you willing to stump up the cash (£120ish) I'd look at Outdoor Designs Alpine Bivi. It made ofthe new highly breatherable GoreTex and is designed to be fully enclosing & therefore element proof. Also very warm - it'll add another season if fully closed and light. The zip can be left open as there is a small mossie net at the enterance (3" or so wide).

For info check out the below, but most climbing places sell them & often cheaper:

Thank you to everyone who offered information.

I've just been given a new sleeping bag that has a central zip, it makes life a lot easier getting in and out of it.

A bivvy bag that also had a centre zip would be ideal.

Is there anything like that on the market?
