Take a look at the JRC Defender Bivvy if you're looking for a practical, no nonsense bivvy that won’t break the bank.
It’s based on a two-rib, five-section, pole system, using 16 mm, lightweight aluminium poles, with tension bars included.
The cover is made from PU coated polyester, with a respectable 5,000 mm waterproof rating.
I like the fact that you can roll back the front of the bivvy to open it up, using the buckle retainers on the sides.
It comes with a two-way, letterbox-style, door system, with green, clear or mozzi mesh window options.
The seams are taped, the pegging points are reinforced, and it is supplied with a tough, lightweight groundsheet.
For extra protection and insulation, and to reduce the chance of condensation in the cold and damp, there’s the option of a Defender Bivvy Wrap.
The ‘wings’ of the wrap provide that little bit of extra storage space, perfect for boots and buckets.
It comes in a one-man or two-man format.
One-man £159.99. Wrap £89.99.
Two-man £179.99. Wrap £99.99.
