Hi all...Dont know if there was a thread for this...but looming for a 2man Bivvy for me & my son....ive found 2 but look exactly the same by 2 different company's...2 different prices..

TF Gear Scout 2man..£99.99

Both look EXACTLY the same...🤔🤔

Any thoughts from you guys on a 2man bivvy.

May be a bit pricey but well worth the extra, imho.

 

Ended up with the CarpZone Hurricane 2 man bivvy...exactly same as the Quest Mk1 2man.

It's an age thing.......believe me.

 

I know what you mean about putting the darned things away.

 

The JRC STi 2 man I had(many years ago)was a royal pain.....it didn't fit back into the bags it came in.😓

I still have the STi 2 man and having used it for the first time came to pack it away into the bag it came in. Not possible! I bought a much larger zipped bivvy bag, best money I've spent!

Glad to be of help. I suspect that the manufacturers employ elves with tiny hands to pack their products..........

Lol... tis deffo a comfy crib tho'.... The extended wrap allows me to get ALL me kit stowed inside, even the barrow

I've got the extended wrap, too. As I only really use the bivvy on my own there is no shortage of space. As you say, everything can be put under cover.
