For use in the UK I don't see the need to use anything more technical - perfect those who want to get out and have their own micro-adventures! That's how long I've been using a Hunka bivvy bag to sleep in the unlikeliest of places.It's light, it's tough, and it's absolutely waterproof - as I discovered in a 3am rain-storm on the Yorkshire coast one horrible, horrible day.

I couldn't for the life of me get this to work properly, and was just left with a lumpy awkward mass to pack away. Perhaps a small velcro strap could be added to the hood to hold it all once rolled? In summary, this is a great product for a great price. Me and my three mates have had hunkas for three years or so, been on dozens of bivvy trips and they are as new and have never let us down.

I cannot fault Alpkit, and will be adding to my collection shortly! I did a lot of research before buying and don't think there's a better quality or better designed bag on the market, even spending silly money.

My only negative comment is minor and more of a suggestion for a new design.

The bottom of the bivvi bags have a mesh pocket to act as a stuff sack.

The Hunka is compact at under 400 g; perfect for all adventurers from alpinists and big wall climbers to minimalist campers and expedition leaders.

Lightweight and small enough to be used as an emergency bag but tough enough to withstand roughing it off the beaten track: Bung it in a kayak, stuff it in your rucksack or attach it to your fat bike- wherever you go and however you travel, a bivvy bag is an essential.As the weather was reasonable (light drizzle through the day, but a dry night forecast) we set off into the hills for our own little micro adventure.Setup was a doddle, and took all of 30 seconds, then it was brew on, bags on, and a beautiful sunset across the valley.This can be cinched down tight to keep all but the worst of the weather out.You will be protected by the waterproof and windproof fabric, it is extremely breathable to minimise condensation build up in your sleeping bag and in clear skies the opening can left open to further help with this.I ordered Hunka couple days ago, I am really impressed how quick parcel came to Poland.
