Description: a bivvy for all weathers.

Specifications: tough ArmaSkin fabric with a waterproof rating of 10,000 mm and a breathability rating of 5,000 g; supplied with a half winter skin (a full winter skin is available separately); aluminium frame; ribbed roof; double door; transparent windows; mosquito mesh windows; vented roof with mosquito mesh; Velcro rod supports; reinforced zips; a heavy-duty groundsheet and moulded screw pegs. Dimensions (HWD): 180 x 260 x 300 cm.

My verdict: I’m impressed with the feel of the high-performance ArmaSkin material. It feels strong and robust, and I don’t doubt its waterproof qualities. The fabric has a little bit of stretch, too, which helps keep the panels under tension.

When it’s hot, you’ll appreciate the rear door and vented roof. When it’s cool and wet, the winter skin provides an extra layer to keep you warm and dry.

Price: £434.99. Winter Skin £234.99.
