Bivvy or Brolly

Recommended Posts

OK its now time to update my old Rod Hutchinson 2 man bivvy, nice spacious bit of kit but takes for ever to put up. I want something reasonably quick to erect with enough space for me and the Mrs, looked at the following Avid Ascent and Fox Supa Brolly but keep coming back to the JRC STI Twin skin mainly because it looks slightly bigger and has the second skin, so what do you think guys??

JRC STI always seems to get highly spoken of...take it you'll be getting a 2 man for you and the Mrs? Welder has a 2 man with extended winter wrap as well I think? Gives even more space :D

Hi Chris, no was thinking of a one man because of one lake I fish I cant get a two man on there so choice is limited.

Where're you going to put your Mrs then?? :P

 

Only thing for me is I wish I had a bivvy with a peak...keep a bit of the rain out

This a fantastic piece of kit and with the overwrap more than big enough for a few nights. My only gripe is that the groundsheet is a bit lame. I suspect it's been updated since I bought mine though!

I used the new bivvy for the first time last week and can honestly say it was brilliant, If I have to say one negative about it, it has no means of putting up a night light in it. My old bivvy had a rubber hook hanging in the middle which allowed me to hang a light. I will probably glue some Velcro on the seem in the middle to fix a light to, other than that I can highly recommend it.
