RADBAG Zip

Much like the Original, an all-round durable bivvy, but straight-cut with a full-length Zip. It’s small and light enough for racing too, and meets the requirements of the Adventure Racing World Series as mandatory equipment.

Details

It’s been refined over many years to be the right size and shape to suit most adults. Over the years we’ve refined the design to strike a balance between warmth, weight and comfort. It’s 2m long and a generous 76cm wide, straight-cut with a full-length zip.

It’s olive green in colour, so that you blend into your surroundings. Let’s face it, most of the time you don’t want your sleeping spot to draw any unwanted attention. And if you should need to make your bivvy highly visible, simply turn it inside out so that the reflective coating is on the outside.

This is not one of those foil bags that crinkles and rustles like a chips packet, annoying your team mates or campsite neighbours. Nor does it rip in half at the slightest excuse like a space blanket. It won’t make you sweat like a plastic bivvy either. Rather, it’s made from a durable material that is extremely water resistant, but breathable enough to prevent condensation inside.

It has a reflective coating on the inside to help retain your radiated body heat. Seams are double-stitched. It has a draw-cord at the opening to allow you wiggle your way down and close it entirely over your head, with a small slit for breathing and for access to the draw-cord.

Your RADBAG Zip features its own attached stuffing bag, sewn onto the foot so you don’t lose it. The bag is sized for easy stowing – you can get your RADBAG packed in 15 seconds flat, so that you are ready to hit the trail again quickly.

It has loops for hanging it up to dry.

If the temperature is moderate to warm, you can sleep straight inside the RADBAG – maybe with a thin liner (+ 5 degrees). If it is really cold or you will be sleeping out for the whole night, then you would climb into your sleeping bag and then into the RADBAG.

The bivvy bag serves the purpose of keeping out the windchill. It features a drawcord at the top to be pulled tight over your head with an open slit for breathing – isolating your body heat inside the cocoon.
