Actually thinking of getting one of these, since the damn rats got into my garage and chewed a hole in my old old bivvy The mozzi and clear window shouldīve been integrated as one(standard), with the solid door optional, if total darkness is required. Then again, donīt take that long to zip off and change, whenever necessary. Iīd probably remove the solid and use the mozzy as standard. Loving the footprint though

It's a bit poo really and when you've got the original door on you've got no ventilation at the front of the bivvy unless you leave it open a bit then the mozzies will be straight in.

Yep, comes with solid door. I bought the mozzy mesh door too (canít moan for an extra £20).
If I was being a moany bitch, Iíd say itís a shame that a mozzy mesh isnít integrated into the solid door, so you donít have to change the whole thing over, but Iím not in a moany bitch mood so still happy with life!

So the bivvy is 250quid without a door OR 290quid with the clear & mozzy door Why not sell the bivvy with a clear door as standard, with the mozzy door as optional ? A bivvy should have a door, whereas a shelter doesnīt

Like the look of this. Nice compact footprint.
Surprised people aren't ripping it to shreds - most Bivvies \ Brollies are far too big and WIDE these days.

Depth is 180, typical "wide" bed is what, 95cm....so you do the maths! With the bed flat against the back you will have as much space again at the front of it and as the roof of the bivvy slopes upwards it will feel even bigger.

After seeing the tactical bivvy set up, I was that impressed that I sold my tempest V2 bivvy and bought one.
I must have had every bivvy on the market over the past 20 odd years, and this is probably the best so far!
Itís very lightweight at around 5kg (excluding groundsheet), goes up quickly, utilises the footprint perfectly due to the square shape and flat sides (comparable to oztent or ridgemonkey) so the bedchair is tight against the back panel leaving loads of room. It has excellent rear vents, is very stable, and quite tall which is handy for us with dodgy backs! Best of all is the quality, the material is second to none, especially after using the over rated aquatexx on my past few bivvyís.
Massive thumbs up from me 👍

If was in the market for a new Bivvy then it would come from either Wychwood or Nash having chosen wisely many years ago I have two that do all Iíd ever want and nothing since has tempted me.

I really like the look of the Wychwood Tactical bivvy and would buy one if i didnt think the Cayman was so good. Hate velcro groundsheets though (although i rarely use one). Nice to see someone bring out a simple & sensibly designed lighweight bivvy .... Its been a while since i see one
