What could be better than sleeping out in the open making wishes on shooting stars, breathing in that crisp, fresh air and waking up to a beautiful sunrise. The Hunka bivvy bag converts your sleeping bag into a shelter for the evening.
The Hunka is compact at under 400 g; perfect for all adventurers from alpinists and big wall climbers to minimalist campers and expedition leaders. Lightweight and small enough to be used as an emergency bag but tough enough to withstand roughing it off the beaten track: Bung it in a kayak, stuff it in your rucksack or attach it to your fat bike- wherever you go and however you travel, a bivvy bag is an essential.
Multi-award winning, the Hunka frequently tops the Best Buy and Best Value awards for bivvy bags
For now, we will disregard the argument as to whether the Hunka is a bivvy, bivi or bivouac sack (it is a bivvy bag by the way) and focus on the fun you can have with it! If Mr Microadventure himself, Alastair Humphreys, hasn’t yet persuaded you of the wonders of the bivvy bag lifestyle, allow us to tell you a few of the best bivvy qualities.
A bivvy bag will keep your sleeping bag safe from the elements; no more soggy down! And no more anxious nights laid awake worrying if your down bag is going to survive to the morning in a dripping snowhole. A bivvy bag is your answer!
Access to the bag is through a simple drawcord closure system at the head of the bag. This can be cinched down tight to keep all but the worst of the weather out. You will be protected by the waterproof and windproof fabric, it is extremely breathable to minimise condensation build up in your sleeping bag and in clear skies the opening can left open to further help with this. With an integrated stuffsack located on the foot section of the bag, it can be quickly packed away.
If one of our products does not meet your expectations upon delivery or, if during its lifetime does not live up to the demands placed upon it, please return it to us for repair, replacement or refund. If the problem is our fault then we will do this to your satisfaction, if it’s your fault then we will help out the best we can.

Walkhighlands' Phil Turner reviews a range of bivvy bags from budget to premium and awards the Alpkit Hunka with Best Buy
Probably THE beginners' bivvy bag, popularised by Alastair Humphreys as part of his Year of Microadventure campaign... but this price tag doesn't really do the product justicePhil Turner
What Mountain Bike July 2011 - Andy McCandlish
WMB tests and reviews all the essential kit for adventure biking. The MytiMug and Numo are both awarded 4 out of 5 stars. The Hunka is awarded 3 out of 5 stars.
You can do just about everything with [the MytiMug] - cook in it, eat out of it and drink from it. Now that is space saving!Andy McCandlish
Another suberb value offering from Alpkit... We used [the Numo] down to 0°C to great effect.Andy McCandlish
For the money [the Hunka] really can't be beaten ... The small pack size and built-in stuff sack are a very welcome bonus.Andy McCandlish
The cow was curious and stood watching as we prepared our evening meal. It would have been serene if it wasn't for the constant clanging of the enormous bell hanging around its neck. An approaching storm was our only hope of a peaceful night tucked up underneath the large boulder in Val Bodengo.
