Fantastic all rounder, Door a bit small

Bought this for one night sessions. Quick erect as described. Door could be wider for easy exit. Could do with Mozzy screen too. Otherwise well worth it for short stays.

I also have a 2 man bivvy I used to have trouble putting it up, but it is simple now I suggest you disconnect the material hooks from the arms and open the frame up then re connect the hooks 3mins max

Tf bivvy

Great bivvy. I read reports of poles snapping whilst being put up but it was extremely easy to erect & stood a good downpour! Looking forward to testing it in winter condition!

Brought this because I liked the look of it with the porch and sewn in ground sheet, found it to be very easy to put up arrived at the start of a session while it was raining and had this up and pegged out in less than a minute while a friend with the JRC contact 2 man was left out in the rain swearing at me as he put his poles together so certainly an advantage, it went on to be a wash out the first 4 hours very heavy rain an never leaked a drop could also have the door open thanks to the porch, warm at night too, plenty of space for bed, bag, tackle box and food.

Heavy rain and strong winds

Ok
This is the second updated review of this item
Just so you know I do have the two man version but as it doesn’t really matter here we go
Since purchasing this item in October we have experience high winds and heavy rain.
My Aim was to test this thing to see what it could take and I have to say I am totally impressed however there is room for improvement (as always)
Lets look at some bad points first. The door gets muddy due to the design and is very hard to keep clean, the clear window lets water in at the bottom due to the way it is stitched some of the component parts have started to rust, the groundsheet is also thin. There has been water getting in through some of the stitching at times. Not quite sure of the purpose of the little hat it has or as my so called buddy calls it “Its winter skin” The pegs are no good you will need proper ones.
Forget about saving time on the bank setting up the bivi by the time you have pegged it out it doesn’t matter but it does pack away very quickly.
The very worst thing about this bivi is trying to dry it out there is no easy way you practically have to put it up to dry it.……BUT……The water that got in was cleared with a single tissue.
Don’t stand on your door it won’t get muddy and spend the time rolling it away as you should
Nothing you can do about the water on the clear door or unfortunately the rings that are rusting.
Put another groundsheet down first to save damaging the thin one.
Overall this thing has been battered so far this winter and has been out 85% of the holidays and weekends since its purchase so it has seen very heavy rain and 40+ miles an hour winds, and its first frost. So what do I think of it NOW?
I’ve have in my garage the original Nash titan and a nearly new chub SC bivi but I really like this thing, I don’t think for a minute it will stand the weather the other two will but it has really stood up to a reasonable challenge and laughed it off and stood firm much to my extreme satisfaction during the storms. I also like the sewn in groundsheet as it keeps vermin out. Zipping up the door a quarter way, keeps eyes on the rods day and night and with the wind at your back and everything else out
This two man version gives you loads of room and consequently, out of the three I have?
I prefer to use this one, for all its faults its good for the money although I’ve notice the two man has gone up this year but it will make an excellent Summer bivi for France due to the bug proof capabilities of the Sewn in groundsheet (no mozzy net though). You have to remember what you are paying and not what you could be paying.
Ive dropped it a star due to its rusting attachment rings and poor door design

Hope you found that useful
Regards
M

TFG Force 8 Speed Lite Bivvy, 1&2 man Reviews

Ok as always you get what you pay for but I will admit for me this thing is Ideal
Although you really DO NEED TO PRACTICE putting it up and make sure the legs are where they are supposed to be before lifting up. Do those two things and it will make the whole process much easier, especially out on the bank in front of others, Lots of space (two man for me)no water got in during showers and surprisingly not much condensation either but I did have the door open to half and the porch is great. There are no ventilation vents or mossy net and If you zip yourself in you are in your bubble and nothing is getting in. The pegs supplied are not quality and are pretty standard tent pegs and you will probably need some heavy duty ones to do the job on harder ground. I also would not be happy to put this up on my own in windy weather. But when it’s up it looks like it has the capability to hold off some hard weather (time will tell) I used another groundsheet under this biviy to prevent any damage to the sewn in groundsheet. On a hard stony surface it would not take much to punch a hole through so my second ground sheet is in the bag ready for next time
There’s no point trying to highlight the bad points id sooner except the fact I haven’t spent two hundred pounds or more, on a bivi and I have a more than acceptable piece of kit. Spacious, light weight, waterproof, sewn in groundsheet just what I wanted. In fact I wasn’t really on a tight budget after looking around the tinternet etc I thought for the money it seems quite good so I bought one and I’m glad I did. Tackle tarts can go fish! ?

Good Bivvy - super value

5 stars are not enough for this product with regards Value for money. Never mastered 20 seconds yet (to erect) but certainly under a min.
It is light but roomy for a one man bivvy, I have a 6 foot six bivvy bed that fits in nicely and leaves room for a seat and table under the bivvy roof,
Being nylon based a good tip, is to give the bivvy a couple of coats of waterproofing ( 2 spray cans) available from go outdoors. Better safe then sorry, Always do this with tents etc when new and repeat each year.
