Just when you thought the Hunka was the perfect bivvy bag for you, we came up with the XL. 

Sleep can make or break your long awaited adventure. A solid night of warm, dry sleep will ensure that you can tackle the challenges of the following day with strength and motivation.

Lofting space is a fundamental. The Hunka XL is in its element when protecting mountaineers from wind and water. The spacious construction allows plenty of room for a big 4 season down bag to loft and keep you toasty warm. No more squashed up down! Hooray!

For users over 6’1” and those with broad shoulders, we recommend the Hunka XL. It has been particularly popular with rugby players for this reason! The extra space allows you to store belongings at the foot of the bag or have your sleeping mat inside the bivvy bag, keeping everything lovely and dry. Who wants to put a sopping wet sleeping mat covered with slug trails back inside their rucksack- not me for sure! 

Despite this palatial spaciousness, the Hunka XL still weighs in at only 503 g and rolls up to a teeny, some would even say microscopic, 23 cm x 27 cm size. This makes the Hunka XL an ideal choice for expeditions, bikepacking or any imaginable adventure where space is a consideration.

Made from ripstop nylon and with a handy drawstring closure, the Hunka XL is your best friend when out on a wild camp.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.
