The Hunka Bivvy Bag - back in stock

By Jay Oram
09, Jan, 2015

Whether on a major mission, a micro adventure or a jaunt the Hunka is the perfect companion.

"What no tent?" 

"What if it rains?"

"So What!!" Came the answer - for a lightweight adventure you can't beat a Hunka. Bivvy bags can come in useful no matter what trip you have planned, the small pack size, weight and ease of use are the main advantages. Both of our bivvy bags weigh around half a kilo (376g / 503g) and pack down to the size of a large fist. Combine this with a sleeping bag and sleeping mat, you could be out that evening. 

Alastair Humphrey's has championed the 'MicroAdventure' - his book and website are great inspiration - we have been on a few of our own adventures with the Hunka - a trip with friends last summer sticks in my mind:

A Work Night Bivvy

We are encouraging everyone to get out on an adventure this year, we even have a few planned in the office. This weekends 'Ford Fiesta' bikepacking social ride organised by Bear bones bikepacking is attended by a number of Alpkit customers and some staff are hoping to get down, the Tuscany Trail, Canoeing the Great Glen, overnight kayak trips and a few nights in the trossachs are already being discussed and it's still January. 

We have seen a new calendar popping up on Social media channels - again from Alastair Humphreys - 'A year of MicroAdventure' - January encourages you to "Start Small" 

The full range of Hunka bivvy bags are back in stock now - What are you waiting for?
