Great roomy shelter., 12 May 2015
By MrChef (Wootton Bassett)
As a rule a two man tent means a one man tent and so on, so I was generally expecting a cramped night in this bivvy. There was me and a camp bed as well as two large rucksacks and there was plenty of room.

What is great about this bivvy is the fact it is dark inside, so if you are wanting a lie in, you will not be woken up by the sun shining through the tent walls. That also means you get a more consistent temperature inside.

The only downside and it is minor is the interior zip. Its a bit fragile and the bivvy I used, had a damaged zip so the inside door would not fully open. A better inner zip would get the fifth star.

I do not recommend this bivvy at all! The pegs are meant to be heavy duty but they bend under pressure. The extra tough ribs collapse every time a big gust of wind hits them. Also, it's meant to erect under 20 seconds, now that's not true, you can put a standard bivvy up quicker than these. As I said above, I do not recommend this bivvy at all, the worst thing I have brought by far.
