Description

I have had it set up in severe gale conditions, and because of the low profile, there was absolutely no chance of it working loose and flying off. The OEX Bush Pro uses a 5000mm hydrostatic head top layer for decent waterproof capability, but we didn’t test it under monsoon conditions. came back this morning from the peak district after spending the night under the tree line just using this bivvy, sleeping bag and roll mat. Its a very spacious little thing, and well ventilated to minimise condensation, but you will get some. if you don't want to get damp however when putting it away, i would recommend bringing a tarp as the water droplets like to cling to it.

You might use it more than you expect, hostels can be few and far between in some areas when on foot. The OEX Bush Pro Bivvi provides waterproof, breathable all-round cover, but packs down into a small, light package that you can easily take wherever you go. When set up it creates an excellent integrated shelter, with room to read and wriggle around inside without sacrificing heat too much. A mate of mine has the 2 person version of this ("Telemark 2") which I've used and it was fantastic.

The bathtub uses a more weighty 70 dernier nylon waterproof floor – this won’t be letting any moisture up from the ground. If you really want to get close to nature and ‘become one’ with the authentic spirit of wild camping then a Bivvy bag is an experience like no other. If you’re ok with the idea of being fully enclosed in bad weather and having the top of the bivvy close to your face then we think this is a great lightweight option.

If a bear did happen to encounter a sleeping person, I'd wager the most likely outcome is that the bear notices the person and goes elsewhere long before the person has much chance of even being woken by the bear, let alone attacked. I plan to stay in hostels most of the way, however I want a backup bivvy bag which I can use if I whenever I don't complete a segment by nightfall. The two hoops are formed by simple flexi DAC aluminium rods – these are exceptionally good poles and we really like to see them on the Ionosphere. As mentioned above, some of the best bivvy bags include a rigid hoop in the hood which keeps the material off your face while you are sleeping, but even so it can be a little claustrophobic inside. When there's a breeze, you can set it up so there's plenty of venting, or leave the porch side wide open.Let’s be honest though – you do end up paying more for Rab equipment, but you know that it will do the job well. The OEX Bush Pro Bivvi provides waterproof, breathable all-round cover, but packs down into a small, light package that you can easily take wherever you go. The Lanshan 1 allows more traditional camping and isn't heavier or much more expensive than the Oex Salamanda.

There is an integrated hood to cover your head for shelter, but it is only sealed up tight using a drawstring rather than a zip.I am hoping to fit both inside the bivvi bag, or maybe I can just have the self-inflating mat underneath the bivvi bag. Be sure to check back soon for our review of 1-2 person all-season tents for similar capability in much improved comfort! Every seam on the Hawk is taped to ensure that water cannot seep in – this is a feature that you normally only see on the very expensive bags. I will be accepting lifts every now and then though if offered, which will make the journey a little shorter.
