Wychwood Have Two New Additions!

Wychwood’s unique bivvy range has it all, and for this spring it’s grown in size…

Rimmed with that distinctive camo pattern, Wychwood’s range of Tactical bivvies cut a distinctive look on the bank. But, as you’ll already know if you’ve been paying close attention to the company’s output in recent years, there’s also plenty of substance behind the good looks.

1. Tactical Bivvy
A bold claim, but this perhaps one of the most underrated shelters available at the moment. It’s a boxy three-rib design with loads of usable internal space, yet it weighs less than 5kg without the groundsheet and pegs. Furthermore, it’s made from Wychwood’s down-right lovely ripstop material (with a 10,000mm hydrostatic head) and has a large zip-in door, a built-in peak and a pair of large rear mozzy meshes. A proper groundsheet and pegs are included in a package that fits nicely into a sensibly sized heavy-duty carry bag. There’s not much more to ask for… £249.99

Total Protection 
To maximise airflow during the warmer months whilst staying protected from the critters, simply remove the waterproof front and zip on the optional extra Tactical Compact Bivvy Mozzi Front. £39.99

2. Tactical Bivvy Extension
…Unless, of course, you want to supersize your order. In which case, the Tactical Bivvy Extension is the ideal solution. It fits easily over the front peak and provides an enlarged porch section, big enough to house an extra bedchair or plenty of bait or cooking equipment for those longer sessions. Like the main Tactical Bivvy, it’s made with tough 16mm poles and that ripstop fabric, and it’s supplied with a heavy-duty groundsheet and proper pegs. This add on weighs 4.2kg all in and comes in its own bag. £149.99

3. Tactical Compact Bivvy
If the Tactical concept sounds appealing, but you really don’t need all that space then the Compact model is built around the same principles with a smaller footprint. That said, it does a great job of maximising the available space thanks to that flat-sided design. This is a two-rib shelter, so it’s quick and easy to erect, and it packs down to just 120cm long. The shelter alone weighs just 4kg, or 6kg with the groundsheet and pegs. It features all the things we like in this range, such as the zip-in door, 16mm poles and hardcore waterproof fabric. £219.99
