    Default Bivvy overwrap temperature

    At what temperature do you use your bivvy overwrap and whether I should waste my money on one.

    Dunno about temperature...as i use my tempest brolly in minus temps.

    But i would say to use a wrap it would have to be very cold /wet / windy for me to get mine out.

    Never use the wrap unless im doing minimum 2 nights anyway...so i basically dont use it !

    I had one with my old armo, only use i got out of it was to keep it waterproof after the wear and tear of years of use. Now i use a brolly there's no point either as the skins touch negating any benefits of two skins ,other than extra waterproofing. The only type of twin skin that ever worked for insulation for me was the clip in type that gave a good area of air between the two skins, with a sewn in groundsheet.

    I use my canvas in the heat of summer to keep cool and the depths of winter to keep warm.

    No set temperature - I continue using my Tempest or Supa brolly all through winter, but a long session in one spot, or a long spell of wet weather might see me adding the full overwrap - as much for the protection from rain as anything else.
