    Question 6.50 well spent?

    Hi,
    I do hope this is proper place to post this question. I have just impulse bought this BELGIAN MK1 SEYNTEX BIVY BAG and was wondering if anyone else has used them in the past? Or uses them still? And if they are any good? I have never owned a bivy bag and thought it was a bout time I did.

    Thank you.

    Fear the reckoning of those you have wronged.

    Looks like 6.50 well spent.
    A bad day on the hills is better than a good day in work any time.

    Thanks for the link. I have ordered one. At that price it can't hurt for a back up. Shame the postage was more than the cost of the bag though

    yeah Skate, the postage is a bit on the high side, but I ordered a good few items so it kind of took the sting out of it a little bit.

    You may have to reproof it. The old goretex type materials loose their repellency over time. Other than that, I can't see why it would let you down.

    How much does it weigh?

    196 cm is definitely too short for me, and for many sleeping bags too I think...

    raven75 : Can you give us your impressions once you have used it in real conditions? Thanks!

    @ FrenchBen It weighs 725g.

    I will most likely not get to use it in "real conditions" until the end of this month due to work but as soon as I do I will put my impressions on here.
