Iíd trust any bivvy that Army Andy and Lee Jackson had a say in the design of, and the Tackle Box after sales service will be better than any other manufacturerís stated warranty.

Ordered yesterday, arrived today, looks absolutely brilliant and so easy to put up, light and really important to me was the depth compared to my Atom 100/plus, ticks all my boxes.
Itís perfect for my requirements, £350 delivered complete with a clever and simple to fit winter skin, water 💦 resistance to 10,0000, strips down to a great day shelter weighing next to nothing, whatís not to like👍👍👍
Will do a proper review when Iíve had some time under/in it.
Cheers
Tel👍👍👍👍👍

Quote... Kinda contradicts its self get one before they sell out they have tons of spares.

I think you need to go back and read what I actually wrote. When you jam it all together from different sentences, like you have there, of course it sounds weird.

They do not have many bivvies left.

They have loads of spares for the bivvy. They will carry these spares long, long after the last bivvy is sold.

Am I missing something there?

Stripped out the bivvy and poles weigh 2.65kg.

The zip in front weighs 1.25kg. Quite a lot of that on the front is the thick plastic window which I ditched.

I did not weigh it, I was given these weights.

Kinda contradicts its self get one before they sell out they have tons of spares. Maybe they are willing to hold back stock in order to look after customers. Now that would be great.

I donít own one however I have had bivvies that have lasted 25 plus years and the TB Bivvy does look great and I hope you get a decent life span out of it. Possibly 15 plus years.

A good tip, watch the video on how to take it apart. It's simple, but I struggled until I watched the video myself, there's a knack to undoing those poles when you first get it.

If you leave the front attached as I do, unzip both door panels and the side panel too on the side the zip is. Otherwise it makes it harder to get apart.

Better.

Watch this video mate. At 4.45, Gary the noddy is sitting inside it stripped out, I'm pretty sure that is on the high setting. There are three different height adjustments on the tension strap that cover quite a few heights. You can have it tall, or splay it out without the front on, and get it really low.

It's a properly designed bivvy. Army Andy and Gary the nod really excelled with the design of this bivvy. Lots of little touches which are immense.

Thanks for your constructive and personal feedback, Iíve been pondering for a while and remember seeing one some time way back, thinking I like that.
Love my Atom Plus, just front to back is a bit confined, Iím going to bite the bullet and order one, for the price I donít think you can go wrong.
Will pop a review up after it arrives and Iíve used it 👍👍👍
Cheers
