Best Bivvy

Post  Jim on Wed Jul 22, 2009 5:21 pm

Gentlemen, and Ladies, and those who are still not too sure, I am currently in the market for a new bivvy. My trusty JRC has a leak, and is not going to be good enough for my coming winter campaign, mainly 'cos it's single skinned, and thereby, not the warmest piece of kit. So, what do you suggest? My criteria are: must be under £200 (can't justify huge expense, on a bivvy that will only be used one night a week, in the main) and must be quick to put up and take down - can't be doing with threading poles through anything! A One man job, as most of the swims on my syndicate, are quite tight.
I look forward to your suggestions. Thank You Smile

Best Bivvy under £200

Post  Admin on Thu Jul 23, 2009 3:46 pm

Hi Jim

Ive got the Nash Double top professional. Had it for a couple of years now.

I paid £169.00 for the 1 man version which was a good price as I think its gone up a bit now but you may get it under £200 still

Positives

Gotta say the build quality is fantastic
Rock solid when erected.
I like the porch as it has a bit that overhangs so you dont get annoying drips from rain etc.
Has an internal layer as well.
Perfect for 1 person
the doorway fold backs nicely and there is a bit on the groundsheet that tucks away to avoid trips
Rear vents, to maximise air flow during hot weather.

Negatives

Bivvyy is not the quickest to erect on the market. I would say it takes about 5-10 minutes to erect
Not the lightest bivvy out their either but not a problem if you have a barrow

Thanks mate. I have actually been considering a Double Top Professional, so that's really helpful.

Thanks peoples, for your help and advice. I have ignored it all, and bought a Chub Cyfish mk2 1-man, bivvy. Smile This was from advice on the bank, and seeing one set up and taken down again. It's a good bit of kit, and although mine hasn't been used yet, I did set it up in the garden and it's easy-peasy!
Thanks again, though.
