Rab Storm Bivi – discontinued red colour is 40% off RRP at Needle Sports!

A robust and weather resistant bivi with side walls to maximise the sleeping bag loft, the Storm Bivi is basically a large version of the well-known Survival Zone, but it differs in that it has side walls to maximise loft of your sleeping bag and instead of a drawcord closure it has a U-shaped vented zip with a storm flap and mesh panel to keep creepy crawlies out.

The upper section is made of waterproof, breathable Hyperlite Storm fabric while the base is a heavy duty, 10000mm hydrostatic head, laminated nylon. It has a more rectangular profile allowing extra storage and room to fidget. Glow in the dark zip pullers make them easy to locate after lights out.

The Storm Bivi can also be used as a sleeping bag cover for use in damp bothies, leaky tents and snow holes.

Size 225cm by 70cm

Weight 560g.
