Re: Pre Winter Peaks Bivy (Nov)?

Right so I've come up with a couple of options. Intending to do most of the riding on the Sunday and just have a short 30 minutes or so on Monday morning (although I can make some suggestions if some folk want to ride further). Option 1 has quite a lot of technical riding and is a bit further. http...

Up early Monday morning (for me at least) to get back to the cars about 6.30 - 7am then off to w...

Is the material gas permeable? Just because something is breathable isn't enough.
Thats a fair point Stu... I can only say that it must obviously be their design... Or more probable that I've just gotten better at this bivvying mslarkey without a shelter :smile:

It's not just CO2 that's the problem, it's H2O from your breath. This too Colin. It must be that I'm using it in alternate seasons than the others but I usually fully expect the Hunka t wake up with a little puddle somewhere but nope, not even a little. Maybe the cooler weather or something but on ...
