Special Forces Bivvi Bag

The Snugpak ® SF Bivvi Bag is perfect for UK Weather Conditions & protecting you from evaporative and convection heat loss and is one of the Ten Essential Items for Hillwalking & Mountaineering. The SF Bivvi bag is the ideal choice for adventure racers, bushcraft and emergency survival. The non-locking 1/2 length front zip allows rapid egress when you have to move fast and every second is critical. With a small volume and exceptionally lightweight properties, it can be folded or packed away as a stalwart item in your race pack, 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 light-weight summer races, or used in conjunction with an Adventure Race Sleeping System for harbour areas and longer excursions, all year round. The SF Bivvi Bag also performs in an emergency to protect against weather elements if you are benighted in less than ideal circumstances.

The technical fabric of the Snugpak SF Bivvi Bag, Paratex Dry, is breathable, allowing trapped moisture to escape from within the microclimate, keeping you warm, dry and comfortable. Paratex Dry moves moisture out of the sleeping system at an impressive 7.5L of moisture per m² per 24hours. When seeking shelter from the weather elements, you will be grateful for 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.

The SF Bivvi bag is the ideal choice for fast and light ventures, adventure races and emergency survival. With a small volume and exceptional light weight, it can be folded of packed away as a stalwart item in your outdoor kit, with or without a sleeping bag. 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 Bags come complete in Standard and Extra Large Sizes, which 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.
