Trakker Oval Levelite
The Trakker Oval Levelite headlines a strong summer line-up for the bivvy-maker behemoth!

As if spring wasn’t exciting enough, we get Trakker dropping a whole load of goodies to make it almost unbearable! Okay, so we all know that when it comes to bivvies, Trakker is tried, tested and utterly trusted by carpers globally, but it’s the breathtaking breadth of its range that’s so impressive these days. It’s almost like innovation is spliced into Trakker’s DNA, so much so, that it’s impossible to second-guess what the Sheffield bivvy behemoth will wow us with next.

We’re so excited to get our hands on stuff like the new Base XP Jacket (bang on trend), the Superdome Bivvy (palatial), and the Vortex Clothing (uber-carpy), but we’ve got to admit, the new Levelite Oval Bed is the showstopper. Put simply, this rather beautiful piece of carping furniture is about to make you rethink what a bedchair looks like…

The revolutionary oval shape optimises the use of space
Adjustable lumbar support for a firmer mattress
The bag can easily be removed for cleaning
Totally flat profile for a perfect night’s sleep

First up, let’s tackle the shape. It’s curvy, in ALL the right ways. Frankly, that seductive oval shape looks more than a bit beautiful, but, like all landmark design, it’s a triumph of function too. Trakker thought hard about how we use the space in our bivvies, and designed a bed that’s big, but actually frees up space inside the shelter. Bloody clever, that, and the innovation doesn’t stop with the shape. It’s actually much more than just a bed; it’s a full-on sleep system, thanks to the clever zip-on bag (a roomy, three-season affair). Because of the tapering shape at the head and the foot of the bed, the bag warms up that much quicker too, which is a nice touch.

The mechanics of the bed are similar to the rest of the award-winning Levelite range. You’ve got the totally flat profile, double hinges to allow the whole lot to fold away flat with the bag attached, adjustable lumbar support and those handy patented adjustable legs, which can be deployed with one hand. The result is a bedchair system that’s so unique and refined that it might just be the best we’ve seen!
