    Default Bivy

    Hi there

    I'm looking for a bivy, for short sessions/overnighters,I'd need something portable not heavy, and waterproof, and have a bottom on it as I fish fairly muddy banksides, Especially in the winter! Would be used on the river/lakes! Not sure on where to start Looking etc, I'd be wanting to spend less than 200
    Never been in a bivy! But would come very handy in Ireland!
    Cheers!

    Other than a power plus I’ve always use Nash Brolly systems and Think they are great the Aqua Atom is alway very good.

    Trakker Tempest Air is the best shelter I've used, ever. In every way. And I've used a lot!

    As above. Or the brolly. Much cheaper. And more cheaply made but also much lighter

    Ive got aright collection of bivvies - if you can get a 2nd hand tempest air that would be my first port opf call as has been mentioned lots of times they really are an exceptional bit of kit I love mine, someone mentioned an aqualight I still have one and its an extremely good bivvy - very lightweight and only two ribs and with a large footprint that will serve you well, I would also give a huge nod to the cyprinus/Aqua brollies that can be had for under 100 on ebay its basically a aqua fast n light for 99 cant go wrong!!! check out the full system for 199 on there site gets you a lot of product for silly money

    The advanta discovery from angling direct looks a really nice well made bit of kit.
    I saw one the other day and was quite impressed.

    I really rate the Tempest Air Bivvy and Brolly. I have both and now predominantly only use the bivvy when away in France.
