Amazes me that bivvies don't come with instructions especially when they haven't released a video.

Cheers greg. I had another go today. I ended up pegging from front which worked also:

Poles then tension strap
Pegged out from sides and door
Inserted front 2 tension poles
Pegged out rear
This worked. Itís so rock solid the back pole is almost irrelevant

There is definitely an art to it, itís not shaped like a normal bivvy though so bound to be.

Superb bit of kit once you figure it out

So this is how I set it up and I think it has overcome the problems:

1. Connect poles
2. Connect tension strap. Largest setting.
3. Peg the 2 points at the back left and right of the centre point.
4. Pull forward. Peg 2 points by the door.
5. Peg other 2 points at the back so it's flat. May need to adjust the sides at this stage.
6. Move to the front. Peg remaining points then the side.
7. I then only use the 2 front tension bars rather than the 3. You can then put the others in if you require.

Same happened to me about 15 years ago with an armo, trakker sent a new strap out which was about 6" longer and it was fine after that!

I found on a pram hood bivvy I owned that the tension strap was slightly too short which then increased the height so you couldnít peg it in........ditched the strap and used the groundsheet hooks and it dropped the front about 2 inches and no more issues........give it a try.......

So I have tried to follow the advice offered on pegging slightly better but still not right... the issue reverts to back! The back pole doesn't take weight barely touching ground. I guess with a lot of fiddling maybe able to improve slightly but remain convinced that this poorly designed and particularly difficult unless you have flat ground.
I have heard from someone in the trade that wychwood know about this issue ...I am generally a fan of wychwood and have a lot of their tackle but amazed that there are no instructions or erection video ...particularly when it's clearly not straight forward...very disappointed!

I Had a bivvy that PROVIDED you pegged it correctly it was absolutely fine

the back had to be vertical if you flared it back instead of upright the front would be short

Iíve had a message from a guy on one of the fb groups who has one out on the bank now. There is a certain way of pegging out and it is fine, heís sent me pics and al looks perfect. This is what he said if it helps:


Iíve moved swims and put the bivvy up again got all pegs in fully.

I found when setting up connect poles hook in tension strap get upright and put peg in by door to stand up peg by pole ends then outside back corners keeping a square shape attach tension poles and peg back and sides straight clip in ground sheet next peg outside front corners put peg through both D rings either side of main zip and peg 15 degrees inwards then peg door peg points just in line with ground sheet 😎hope this helps
