My Snugpak SJ9 jacket was delivered today £96 virtually brand new , still got the label in the inside pocket .

went for a large in the end and it’s not that oversized tbh . 
Obviously not had a chance to test it yet , and hopefully never will , but I’m well pleased with it .

Plan is to use it in conjunction with my very warm old Ron Thompson Salopettes so any advice on layering etc will be appreciated.

Gonna flog a few bits I don’t use/need to raise the money for a new sleepybag now .

#Nick , we should be allowed to offer stuff around on here mate . If I was going to move stuff on I’d rather it went to a good home and we're all friends on here 🤣🤣🤣😘

Hi Guys.....

I've now come to a conclusion I'm wanting a decent size 1 man bivvy that can be turned into a 2 man with a wrap....

At the moment I'm looking towards an Aqua M3 with Super/Extender Wrap.

I know I've got the 1an to myself, and the Sonik 2 man, but not even put that up yet and does look a way to big bivvy, over time it might grow on me ???

Just keep the 2 man for the times you need it , and use the 1 man when you don't, I quite enjoyed having loads of space when I used mine on holiday, and it wasn't any more difficult to erect (I have a fox tt eos 2 man) otherwise I love the compactness of the bunker makes me take less toot with me

The Sonik AXS was just about enough for 1 bed and 1 chair, but can only sleep so many times in a chair.....

The Sonik 2 man I have will be plenty and more for me n lad.....

The Advanta 1 man is Very Compact and only just enough for 1 man.

I am thinking of waiting for Sonik to bring out the Camo Vapour Cap or Camo Wrap for the 2 man, but I'm sure they said they arrive this week to them, then on sale a few days later....

I don’t think you can buy the M3 anymore 

like Elmo said 

I have a contact 2 man for the rare times I need it 

I'm looking a Decent 2nd Hand M3 now, got about 4 I've saved all around £300 for Bivvy n Wrap.....all in Excellent Condition. (That's how pictures look)....but I look in a 20mile radius so I can see them up for myself.

I'm also thinking hanging fire until after New Year, got £300 here, could sell 1 man (maybe the 2 man) then get something like the M3 or a NEW 1.5/2 man n Wrap......

Maybe even Sonik AXS XL n Wrap 🤔

Is that not the same as the one you are looking at but not made by aqua but probably made in the same factory

It took an hour to fully put up and take down, taking my time....I actually might keep and get either the Vapor Shield, Wrap or Inner Capsules.

 

Do you need planning permission for it from the council  😉

Oh almost forgot as haven't used it yet, from a welding company in Birmingham a little weed rake that doubles as a feature finder clearer weighs 3 n half oz.

They do other sizes this cost 11 quid free posting.

I had one of those once, till I forgot to clip up and launched it deep Into the pads behind the spot, needless to say it gained freedom and hasn't looked back since (use a shock leader) 😳 I can recommend his products though I own the week rake and the weed cutter, the weed rake is an awesome tool used it lots of times

Tell you what, it might be worth having a word with Ian, @welder about these, see if he can knock something up. I know he's a very busy man, doing some lovely gates and fencing, but his 'scraps' could be a small money maker as well.

He repaired the handles on my original barrow when I donated it to a fishing charity. They are stronger than the original work!

Sonik......

We are only going to bring out the vapour caps for the AXS 2 man, the wraps we decided not to go with as they were just to heavy for the bivvy given the size and the vapour cap is just as effective so only the cap will be available.

Fair play on the bivvy selection I still have a yearning for the pioneer or tempest not had a problem with the avenger two rib it's just not instant like the pioneer I need a solid reason or two to get one though trying to explain the finer details to a non angler might get technical.

I was offered a Swap for a Tempest 100T and Social Extension (BRAND new in Boxes) but no Infill panel only Mozzy and no groundsheet for Extension, but he was 2hr drive away.
