My current tent is a 2-3 man, excellent stormproof and roomy but too big and heavy for one person to lug about. As a second and hopefully cheaper choice, I was considering buying a Dutch Army hooped goretex bivi but like all bivi bags, even with a hoop, it's a little too much like sleeping in a fabric coffin. Before all you hammock evangelists chip in, the places I will be going on my own don't have trees , either being higher up or out in the Hebrides. Came across this
which is also sold in woodland and flecktarn camo and am tempted but wondered if anyone has any first hand knowledge of them. I'd prefer it to pitch flysheet first but for the price it looks decent.
