Re: Bivvy a month 2019

Thanks John... I'm actually noticing its getting easier to get a BAM in every month now that I'm in the swing of things. Initially I started it for the coveted little badge but now happy with just getting on with it and adapting my rides and gear to suit...

I have a PHD Minim300 custom (bought off Fitz couple years ago) weighing in at 585g. I've always loved it with a little hate cos its very snug... which I'm sure is a good thing in the minimalist dept. Good to around the +2 mark or lower if I wore extra down jacket. Now I'm thinking the Cumulus 350 w...
