The Nash Scope Bivvy Tent is a terrific choice for minimalists who prefer the great outdoors to living indoors. The pronounced angles and corners provide excellent stability in high winds or on rocky terrain. It offers more than enough space for one person, thanks to the lengthwise design that puts your feet up off the ground and so protects them from damp floors.
The Nash bivvy is the latest incarnation of a product that has been used in every type of outdoor activity, from climbing to desert exploration. It could be described as ‘a giant sleeping bag’ with a slit for your head and feet, wrapped up into a surprisingly small bundle which you can keep anywhere: backpack, pants pockets or even your tent if you’re feeling lazy.
If you’re looking to go lighter and faster, the Nash Scope bivy is an excellent substitute for a traditional tent. Made from premium 900D ripstop nylon with lightweight breathable mesh materials in strategic areas, this spacious cocoon will keep you safe without weighing you down.
With good ventilation at your feet thanks to the space-saving incorporation of the venting channel and visor hood with removable fleece lining to block wind or cold air easily found in traditional tents; all while being stuffed into its own compression bag.
A great piece of camping kit for the solo camper, this Nash Scope Bivvy is a roomy wind and waterproof shelter that provides protection from rain showers or dew. However, if you’re planning to use it in really wet conditions then we recommend adding the optional overwrap which will provide total comfort while keeping you dry and cosy in even extreme weather conditions.
This bivvy also features a visor hood with an interior Velcro closure system which even includes ventilation at the foot box, making it far more usable than many other models out there in this price range.
The advantage for hikers when compared to traditional tents is its space-saving and lightweight design – it takes up less room in your pack than a traditional tent would.
The bivvy is also handy for hot summers as there are ample ventilation panels so no sweaty night-time camping trips! Not only does the bivvy have generous living space but it can also be used for the single outdoor traveller without worry.
In the final analysis, the Nash Scope bivvy is a great product. Made for concealed hunting, this 3D bivvy provides the comfort of an open-fronted shelter with protection against wet ground and pouring rain.
The rear mesh vents allow air to circulate through in hot weather – useful when sitting and standing accumulated mud or soft snow can find its way inside a soggy groundsheet keeps you clean on all occasions.
