Sold here in used military surplus condition. These are genuine British Army issue bivvi bags. They have obvious signs of use such as writing and some marks consistent with military use. However, all have been checked and passed as fit for purpose. As we have several available, the one pictured will not be the one you receive.
The Bivvi Bag is listed as an essential item within the ‘Freedom of the Hills Systems Approach’ to Hill Walking, providing emergency shelter for anyone participating in ventures and expeditions. Lightweight, waterproof and windproof, the Bivvi Bag provides protection from weather elements all year round and is small enough to be carried on it’s own for emergencies, as well as used in conjunction with an entire sleeping system for wild camping and tent based camping ventures.
When planning and conducting any venture, shelter is one of the most important considerations for lightweight travel, even if planned camps are not part of the overall objective. The lightweight bivvi bag, a term abbreviated from bivouac , a French word meaning ‘temporary encampment’, can be used as the bare minimum for light-weight wild camping in the summer, or used in conjunction with a sleeping bag and air mat for planned camps all year round, as well as in an emergency to protect against weather elements if you are benighted in less than ideal circumstances.
The Bivvi bag is the ideal choice for outdoor ventures, bushcraft and emergency survival. With a small volume and exceptional light weight, it can be folded of packed away as a stalwart item in your outdoor kit, with or without a sleeping bag.
Please Note: Bivvi Bags have a solid coating, and although designed to be breathable, sufficient air cannot pass through the fabric to sustain breathing. Care should be taken not to completely seal any Bivvi Bag system, so as to prevent suffocation.
