Just because the Snugpak Special Forces Bivvi was built for the army elite, it doesn't mean that you can enjoy it's fantastic weather protection or lightweight construction when wild camping in Wicklow.
Sometimes you need to travel as light as possible, and be prepared to take cover quickly in adverse conditions. This is extreme camping. As the name suggests, this is a hard-working and reliable Bivvi that protects you from the wind and rain. It’s lightweight, compact and 100% waterproof, making it an ideal emergency refuge or for packing ‘just in case’.
