Why Avid Bivvies Are So Spacious

A bivvy is a bivvy, right? Try telling our design and development team that! From choice of fabrics, to the layout and fabrication of the aluminium poles, bivvies are a real artform and too much material here and a pole bent to the wrong degree there and you end up with a bivvy that just doesn't look 'right'.

Avid is famed for having some of the most individual frames and layouts on the market. Convention is boring and whilst other brands reinvent the same pramhood year after year, we're always looking at how to improve bivvy life. That goes for how easy they are to put up, to the internal space they provide and how sturdy they are in tough conditions.

Let's take a quick look at the unique selling points of each Avid bivvy. One thing they all have in common is a splayed out pole layout. Why? Because it gives you more space inside. Notice that the width of the poles correlates to the width of a bedchair, because that's what usually goes inside the bivvy. This then leaves more space behind the bed and infront of the bed for the rest of your gear.

To add stability, the HQ Twin Skin, Basecamper and Tardis all feature side Re:tension bars, with retaining straps on for spare rods, nets, and whatever else you want to prop up the side of your bivvy. If you see another bivvy on the market with this feature it's for one reason and one reason only – they've copied us!

The result is more space, more rigidty, more features. A traditional pramhood only has one benefit, by contrast.

Add to this an awesome choice of fabrics, innovative carry bags (with internal tension straps for ease of packing away) and hallmark Avid quality and it's clear why choosing an Avid Carp bivvy is one of the wisest decisions you'll ever make...
