    Bivy bag

    As per photos

    I think its the Army one - I've never used it, and I believe it was new when I bought it in 2015.

    $150 inc shipping NZ-wide

    Have you used it? What was it like for condensation and weather proof?

    Have used a bivy bag a couple of times, find I prefer a tent if it's raining!

    Looks like the standard military ones with the NZDF number Russian. Ive got a US military one and its awesome (US, British, Aus and NZ are pretty much the same). If your using a sleeping bag inside it the bivy will add 15C to the temp rating of your sleep system. I mostly just take the biv itself, no issues at all with condensation. Its very waterproof, nice and light and rolls up tight for easy packing.

    I also have either a poncho, basha or tarp to sling up above it for cooking, sitting chilling or just having your gear about the place. Mates have woken up sleeping in puddles of water and been toasty warm and dry inside them.

    Sounds very tempting. Will keep an eye out for the next one to pop up. I have a small tarp that would go well with one.
