Note that this bivvy has the new Hydro-Tec® fabric - twice as good as any other on the market in this price range!
Made with the new updated Hydro-Tec® fabric - this is the most water and weather proof material on the planet! And with its new Magnetic-Link pole technology, this is a game changer...
The all-singing, all-dancing, all-season bivvy, the Cyprinus Magnetix is a shelter you can rely on all year round. Made from our renowned Hydro-Tec® material, its strength lies in its versatility.
The Cyprinus Magnetix can be completely stripped down for Spring / Summer fishing, but with the addition of the removable infill panel this transforms it into a bivvy that will protect you from the worst of the Winter weather... what more could you ask for?
The new Cyprinus Magnetix Bivvy features new and upgraded Hydro-Tec® fabric, upgraded black powder coated poles and the new revolutionary Magnetic-Link pole technology, which means snapped pole elastics will be a thing of the past.
The new Hydro-Tec® fabric used for this product has reached a hydrostatic head of over 10000mm / H20 (mbar) in tests by an independent testing laboratory. Hydrostatic definition In simplistic terms it is the best way to accurately measure the "waterproofness" of any material. Rain resistance is measured as a hydrostatic head in millimetres (mm). This indicates the pressure of water needed to penetrate any material.
The hydrostatic head is determined in a simple way, by placing a tube onto a piece of the fabric to be tested. Water is then gradually added until it forces its way through the material. Just before the water breaks through the fabric is the hydrostatic head measurement. Materials with a hydrostatic head of 1000 mm or less are best described as shower resistant, with 1500 mm being usually suitable for casual family camping in the summer months. Tents for year-round use (including winter) generally have at least 2000 mm; expedition tents intended for extreme conditions are often rated at 3000 mm. Magnetic-Link pole technology.
The black powder coated poles now come with extra strong adjustable magnetic tipped poles which simply "clunk" into place, allowing for even quicker setups.
The Magnetic-Link pole technology pole system allows the bivvy to be assembled and dismantled in super-quick time.
