Best selling bivvy bag in UK

An affordable waterproof bivvy bag for taller users

By Kenny Stocker

The Hunka bivvy bag has been the UKs best selling bivvy bag for 2 decade. Find out what makes this oversized waterproof bivvy bag a standout choice for lightweight hillwalking and bikepacking.

The Hunka XL is the larger version of our best-selling Hunka bivvy bag. In this review for Live for the Outdoors, James Forrest covers its design, performance, and value for money.

They say

James highlights that the Alpkit Hunka XL offers fantastic value at just £70, comparing favourably not only to tents but also to other bivvies. This lightweight, waterproof, and spacious bivvy bag is a simple, no-fuss product with minimal features that performs well.

With a 20,000mm hydrostatic head rating and fully taped seams, the Hunka XL ensures effective waterproofing. The sculpted hood with two drawcords can be cinched tightly around your head, though it cannot be completely sealed. Weighing only 482g, it packs down very small and provides a roomy interior, making it perfect for taller users or those needing extra space.

Despite its minimalist design, the Hunka XL includes eco-friendly materials, contributing to its sustainability.

We say

The Hunka continues to go from strength to strength. With its recycled 2.5L nylon ripstop, PFC-Free, eco-conscious design, it's a perfect choice for anyone looking to simplify their camping experience or have the reassurance of a high-performance emergency bivvy bag in their pack.
