I must have been a very good boy this year as Father Christmas very cleverly remembered what I wanted and duly delivered.
After a dampish night in Wanda halfway up Scafell Pike earlier in the year in, admittedly, pretty horrendous conditions, I had coveted Shirl's very lightweight bivi bag that she had bought from Winwood Outdoors. Unfortunately it was no longer possible to get the same bag and so I scoured the interwebbysphere for a similar product that was available in Britain and not stratospherically expensive.
Eventually I came up with the RAB Ultra Bivi:
Rather pleasingly it actually weighs less than the manufacturer states - just 201 grams in its little stuff sac: A trifle, to guarantee a warm dry sleep in the very worst that the British weather can chuck at little Wanda. It is very well made and has welded seams - so I was very impressed, especially considering the price.
But one thing did make me chuckle: The tag that came with the bag:
Is this RAB keeping "Johnny Foreigner" in his place?
