    Cheers for the advice guys!
    I am looking at doing the fly camp thing, rather than carrying the tent.
    Those of you that fly camp do you use a bivi bag as well? All my hunting is in the bush.

    I fly camp with a tent, ive only got 2man 3 season tent that goes on most trips with me unless its day stuff.
    Although most of my hunting is open country stuff, its only the roar I go to fiordland for bush stuff. And as a good mate found out last year when he took his hammock and bivvy bag in there. Theres no where to get away from the sandflies when eating

    How does the English bag compare to the US Army ones, weight wise, size etc?

    I wouldn't go past the NZ Army ones. There are two models the Camo Milar one, and the green gortex one. Both are great and function much the same. The camo one is more readily available on trade me ect and they are made buy macpac (so that keeps the mind at ease).

    These are far superior to the US Army ones, and in my experience are better than the UK surplus ones. Keep an eye out, they pop out from time to time.
