The Snugpak Special Forces Bivvi Bag WGTE is a tough, lightweight and 100% waterproof cover for you and your sleeping bag, designed for use when sleeping without a tent.

This is a hard-working bivi bag, offering reliable protection from wind and rain, and its low weight and small pack size make it ideal for keeping in your rucksack as part of your emergency overnight kit. One of our favourite features of this bag is its central zip design, which makes it perfect for use with the Ray Mears range of sleeping bags.

The outer fabric of the Special Forces Bivvi Bag has been given a Durable Water Repellent treatment for extra weather protection. This finish can be maintained by placing the bag on a cool tumble dry cycle after washing, and periodic retreatment with a suitable aftercare product such as Nikwax. It is important to note that care should be taken not to completely seal any bivi bag, to prevent suffocation.

  The bivvy bag is fine, but I wished I brought the XL one instead. My RM Osprey sleeping bag pops out the top a fraction to much for my liking. It would probably be ok if I wasn’t so tall, I’m 6’1” my feet touch the bottom of the bivvy bag. Oh well, nothing wrong with the bag, I just brought the wrong one.

  Very light, packs very small, centre zip. So far, so good. Just hope it keeps me dry.

  The Snugpak Special Forces Bivvi Bag bag is absolutely fantastic. I just used it on a hiking and camping trip in the Sierras, I ended up not using my tent. Perfect for a cozy sleep out under the stars, and I'm sure would serve me well in a survival situation.

  I tried it in Payson Arizona which considered a dry place and still I got lots of condensations in the morning even though I had the zipper opened half way. Its good for cowboy camping and to keep your sleeping bag clean, but I would not use this with Down sleeping bags because of condensations and also I would not use this at below freezing temperatures. I have a Goretex one and I have to say that one works way better for the price.

  Quick delivery. I haven’t used the item yet. Big enough for one person two at a squeeze in a survival situation. Packs away really small. I am a little weary as to the quality of the item. It doesn’t look as strong or well made as the military bivi bag I am used to. I am also weary of the flap over the zip as this doesn’t seem to be large enough to prevent water ingress in my opinion. Time will tell. The best feature of this bivi bag is its size when packed away.

  The SF Snugpak bivvi bag spent the weekend in the cold and wet Blue Mountains (Australia) and kept me perfectly dry despite the rain with no condensation. This bivvi bag is quite roomy and was very comfortable for me as a side sleeper. Packs up small, would recommend to anyone looking to ditch the tent.
