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

Extend your bivvy adventures with a Rig Tarp

A lightweight Rig tarp is the perfect companion to a Hunka bivvy bag. Available in 3 sizes; Rig 3.5 is perfect for soloists, Rig 7 is just right for sharing nights under the stars and the enourmous group sized Rig 21 has community appeal!

  • Sculptured hood with dual drawcords

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.

Walkhighlands award Alpkit Hunka with Best Buy

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 justice

Faraway Visions review Hunka

Faraway Visions review the Hunka

It packs up nice and small in its very own little integrated home, which is wonderful if you’re an untidy camper. No need to go looking for some cute little drawstring sack when you’re up before dawn freezing your nuts off.

WMB Tests MytiMug, Hunka and Numo

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.

Wilderness Skills Rig 3.5

Joe's Rig set up

My minimalist tarp set up using the Alpkit rig 3.5. Absolutely crazily small pack size but full coverage. This set up was similar in size to a typical hooped bivi tent so only really suitable for overnight.
