Hunka XL

X-large ultralight bivvy bag/sleeping bag cover

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.

Sleeping under the stars, feeling the wind across your face, there is nothing like it.

The Hunka XL was designed to provide you with even more length and girth than the regular Hunka. This is a distinct advantage if you have a larger frame or a puffy winter bag. Its simple, ultralight design has allowed many walkers, climbers and bikers to re-think bivvy systems and to integrate a Hunka into their sleep system.

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. The fabric is extremely breathable to minimise condensation build up in your sleeping bag and in clear skies the opening can be 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.

  • 2.5 layer ripstop nylon construction
  • Waterproof: HH 10,000 mm
  • Breathable: MVP of 10,000 g/m²/24 hr
  • Sculptured hood with dual drawcords
  • Fully taped seams
  • Integral stuff sack
  • Tapered shape: 235 cm long x 98 cm wide at the shoulders/72 cm at the feet
  • Lightweight: 503 g (average of 10 bags)

Took delivery of the Hunka XL last week, very quick delivery. Camped in a cave off the summit of Cnict this weekend. The bag was brilliant. I am 6ft 1 and had a big 4 season sleeping bag which fitted perfectly, lots of room, so the sleeping bag remained puffed.  It was a cold night but no condensation on the inside plus it had rained through the entrance of the cave and on to the bottom of the Hunka but the bag repelled the rain and I remained snug and dry. Unbelievable value.

Walkhighlands award Alpkit Hunka with Best Buy

Walkhighlands July 2013 - Phil Turner

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

WMB Tests MytiMug, Hunka and Numo

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!

Another suberb value offering from Alpkit... We used [the Numo] down to 0°C to great effect.

For the money [the Hunka] really can't be beaten ... The small pack size and built-in stuff sack are a very welcome bonus.
