Hello fellow spiners . I'm looking into bivvy bags and wondering if you can help me? Is there a favourite that the majority of you use

Discussions on this question.... Stuart Smith Omg what a can of worms you have opened. Zoe Thornburgh Here's my worm: I love my Alpkit :) Alec Major seemed to be what a lot of people had from working on the kit checks before the race Zoe Thornburgh Alec - it's a decent price and works! (breathable and waterproof :) ) Michelle Jane Alpkit :) Chris Edmonds Another for Alpkit Anne Green Terra Nova Jupiter or Rab Ridge Raider. The extra space a hooped bivy gives you is, IMHO, worth the extra weight/volume. Especially given that you're more likely to need to actually use it now that sleeping at 0.5 CPs isn't an Howard Dracup Good point Kevin Otto Rab Alpine. Mick Buin Mountain equipment borealis, my choice to sleep in, and I have an ion light weight for race requirements and emergency use always in my pack Paul Craddock I have the Rab Ascent and can't fault it. Phil Marshall This has probably been answered before, but would a bothy bag be accepted? Or does it have to a bivvy bag? Alec Major Got to be a bivvy bag - check the race rules for confirmation Leif Abrahamsen I used a black diamond it got a arch pole in the head area so you can get a litle room 😊 Rob Crowther Alpkit Hunka and don't plan on sleeping too much Richard Lendon Bivvy bags already.....it's only February ;)

Alpkit. Needed mine in a proper emergency in the race. You don't want a skinny lightweight one in the event you actually need it to get into fully booted and clothed
