I voted double skin tent because I use that most, normally with my car and a massive event shelter at bike events! When out and about, it tends to be a bivvy bag only when I know it won't rain, and include a tarp if it might/will rain, with the odd bothy thrown in.

And where's the hammock option for FF!?

Tarp and bivvy, although the tarp is regularly a Trailstar so not sure if that counts. I like the idea that i can just climb into the bivvy bag if I don't want to set everything up. I never do, but then again the trailstar was expensive :).

Voted double skin tent as that's what I've used on the last 4 'winter' bivis but with this balmy weather we've been having recently it'll have to be the SMD Luna Solo soon!

tarp and bivy for me, probably would use my tent more but I've struggled to get out at all over Winter despite splashing out on an expensive (for me) 4 season bag! :roll:
Wait for me...

No ... I reckon swearing at me would be much more in character ;)
