What's it for?

You're unlikely to get cheaper than the issue model, and while it's very 'no-frills', it's decent quality.

What do you actually want in a bivi bag mercian?

One like the issue one - in which case what is wrong with it?

Or a one man tent?

Any surplus store should be able to supply you with one.

OR

If you, or someone you know, is good at sewing you can knock one up yourself.

I found the pattern for one, and had it made by my mum whilst I was in.

The Bivi bag is great. Tough strong lower bit, and the top was made from something like MRX 2000 or similar. Like Gore-Tex but a knock off version :D

Complete with mosi netting around the mouth, and a little tab so I can attach it to a tree to keep the "mouth" open.

It's not a bad bit of kit. Cheap too.

Cadets issued with Bivvy bags? Doubt it. Hard enough to get issued with basic uniform a few years back. Had to supply our own sleeping bags and everything.

So I doubt that cadets are issued with this kit! :D

it varies from county to county mate, i think. but we got issued with some really guccie (spelling?) kit this year.

edit: but needless to say it had to be returned at end of camp

You can have mine, I'll leave it to you in my will. You're not in a hurry are you?

Ok, I've had my fun, but to show I'm not a complete A-hole, I use one of these.........

An innovative, multi-purpose piece of equipment that is indispensable for nearly every outdoor activity.

Originally developed as a survival tool for Swedish air force pilots, our patented Bivanorak is a bivy bag/sleeping bag cover, rain garment, portable windbreak, and emergency shelter, all in one – and all in a 650 g/1 lb 7 oz package. The Bivanorak is made from a lightweight, tough, polyurethane-coated waterproof breathable fabric and has fully taped seams.

As a Bivy bag/Sleeping Bag Cover…
The Bivanorak is cut long and wide to provide room for both a sleeping bag and pad in bivy bag mode. Its lower hem and cuffs have draw cords (those in the cuffs are elastic) which can be secured shut to keep warmth in and rain and snow out, and its long front zipper makes entry and exit easy. The large hood will easily accommodate the hood of a sleeping bag, yet it can be cinched tightly around your face. Combine a Hilleberg Bivanorak and Tarp to create a highly effective – and incredibly lightweight – shelter system.



As a Rain Garment…
The Bivanorak is worn anorak style and can be adjusted to a variety of lengths. Simply pull the bottom hem up inside the body of the Bivanorak and tighten the draw cord around your waist. There is even enough room to carry a backpack underneath! Pair it with rain pants or chaps and you have superb wet weather protection. Its single size and easy adjustability allow both the tallest and smallest person to use the Bivanorak.

As a Windbreak/Shelter…
Simply pull it out of your pack and climb in. The wind and waterproof material, adjustable cuffs and hem, and generous hood make for a roomy, comfortable temporary refuge! It’s a versatile alternative to our Windsack as safety equipment for one person.Hilberg has been granted the patent on the innovative Bivanorak!
