Dutch Gore-Tex Bivy Bag, with Pole, DPM, surplus

Dutch Gore-Tex Bivy Bag, with Pole, DPM, surplus

Price 128.99 USD excluding VAT

We got a limited supply of legendary Dutch army bivy bags. This is an excellent one-person shelter when your troops need to be spread far apart and stay concealed from the enemy. Apart from soldiers, this is perfect for paranoid preppers and campers that prefer the Finnish-style social distancing. The Gore-Tex membrane makes it suitable for mud and misery, too. We have very few of these, so get yours first before our own survivalists hoard them all.

Not a tent or a sleeping bag, but a little bit of both

The Dutch army bivy bag is a bastard child of a tent and a sleeping bag that got a bit drunk and amorous. It combines elements of both in an interesting way. Whether this is a good or a bad thing depends on the user.

It comes with a tent pole which is used for hooping the head area off the ground. The bag has six loops for tent pegs that don’t come in the package. If they did, you could secure the bag on the ground so that you won’t rock n roll around the clock with your bag. If this is something you want, buy lightweight pegs separately or whittle them from sticks if you got the permission for it.

The bag is equipped with a mosquito net that you can zip on the head opening. It keeps you from going insane in a mosquito hell without having to mummify completely in the bag.

There are large loops underneath the bag that you can use to secure a sleeping pad in place. This increases the lifespan of the product. If you want some extra insulation and comfort, you can slide another sleeping pad inside the bag through the side zipper. The zipper has a storm flap for additional protection.

Not for fancy pants

This isn’t a dream come true for those that like luxury, but it isn’t meant to be. When it rains tigers and hogs, you either need to lie prone in your bag or get wet. However, this is a very cool option for campers that like to stay invisible and be protected from the weather or bugs. You can, of course, set up a tarp alongside this to make things more comfortable but it kind of defeats the original purpose. It ain't proper camping without some blood, sweat, and tears.

Genuine Dutch Army Surplus

These are genuine army surplus but in very good condition. The poles are virtually new. The price has about doubled since the early 2000s, but that doesn't mean this is a bad deal. Manufactured by Fecsa, Spain.

Muuta kautta tämän hankkineena en voi muutakuin suunnitella jokaiselle, joka haluaa Bivyn hankkia, vaikka hintaa onkin tuplasti. Kiiloja ei kokemuksen mukaan edes tarvitse vuolla hienommin vaan ihan perus keppi maahan tökkääminen riittää ja hyvin pysyy.

I have it, not from Varusteleka, but it's an amazing bivvy bag. Can be closed fully, and you can still breathe properly. Make sure to treat it with a DWR coating if water droplets don't roll off, or you'll be more likely to have condensation on the inside.

They are made by two companies; FECSA and Carinthia. If you are able to choose, get the one from Carinthia. It is more light-weight, and has better zippers (YKK).
