Snugpak Bivvi Bag Extra Long


The Snugpak® Special Forces Bivvi Bag is perfect for cold weather conditions and can protect you from evaporative and convection heat loss. The Special Forces Bivvi Bag is one of the essential items to pack for hiking and mountaineering expeditions. The Special Forces Bivvi Bag by Snugpak is the ideal choice for adventure, bushcraft and emergency survival. The non-locking 1/2 length front zip allows rapid egress when you have to move fast and when every second is critical. This Snugpak Bivvi Bag can be folded or packed away in your bug-out-bag or backpack, with or without a sleeping bag.

The bivvi bag, a term abbreviated from bivouac, a French word meaning ‘temporary encampment’, can be used as the bare minimum for lightweight summer races, or used in conjunction with an Adventure Race Sleeping System for longer excursions, in any weather. The SF Bivvi Bag also performs in an emergency situation to protect against weather elements if you were to come across a less than ideal circumstance.

Snugpak SF Bivvi Bag is constructed from Paratex Dry which is a breathable fabric that allows trapped moisture to escape from within the microclimate, keeping you warm, dry and comfortable. Paratex Dry moves moisture out of the sleeping bag at an impressive 7.5 Litres of moisture per m² per 24 hours. When seeking shelter from the weather elements, you can rely on the superior technical features of the Snugpak SF Bivvi Bag, and have greater confidence in your fast and light ventures, knowing you are equipped to deal with the worst weather, as well as having a protective shell for your sleeping bag.

This Bivvi Bag is the perfect choice for fast and light adventures and emergency survival. A 5000mm Hydrostatic Head guarantees waterproof and windproof durability, creating an enclosed micro-climate that increases humidity and maintaining body temperature through the protection of evaporative and convection heat loss.

Snugpak Bivvi Bag in Extra Large Size can be used with 4 Season or Expedition (Polar) based sleeping bags as well as the Snugpak AR Sleeping System.

Please Note: Snugpak Bivvi Bags have a solid coating, and although designed to be breathable, sufficient air cannot pass through the fabric to sustain breathing. To prevent suffocation do not seal any Bivvi Bag system completely.
