Details

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.

AK Tall Story

X-large ultralight bivvy bag/sleeping bag cover

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.

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!

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!

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.
