    1. THERE IS A STORY BEHIND THIS BIVVY
      TEAM CAPERLAN engineers and designers developed and tested this product in Cestas, in the Gironde region of France. In the heart of the Landes region lie the big lakes and still waters that are famous throughout France for their big fish and extreme conditions. The supercharged giant carp there really put our teams and products to the test. SATISFIED ANGLERS, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR!
    2. A BIVVY THAT MEASURES UP
      The unfolded size of the bivvy is: Height: 155 cm, Width: 240 cm, Length: 295 cm. The bivvy interior is roomy enough for 2 anglers and their bedchairs.
    3. WEIGHT
      At just 11kg and with straps on the tent bag, the Tanker is easy to carry.
    4. TOTALLY WATERPROOF
      The durable 200 denier fabric will stand up to bad weather. The totally waterproof fabric will keep you dry whatever the conditions. For total protection from the weather, close the front door zip. This zip opens quickly if you need to get out.
    5. KEEP IN MIND
      A fly cover compatible with the Tanker is available to purchase on our website. Bivvy fly covers are essential for withstanding extreme conditions (winter, heavy rain...) and they also prevent condensation forming in your tent.
    6. AGAINST THE WIND
      The 16 mm aluminium poles help the bivvy withstand strong winds up to 80 km/h. There are 8 peg points at the base of the tent for securely pegging it to the ground.Bivvy comes with set of screw in tent pegs. To increase the strength of the bivvy, 4 adjustable poles are included.
    7. OBSERVATION
      There a 6 windows for observing the swim from your bedchair and also to simply enjoy the surroundings. There are three in the front flap. One on each side and one at the back. They can all be closed to protect you from sunlight. The rear window has a mosquito net so it can be left open for ventilation with no risk of midge bites.
    8. ON THE GROUND
      Groundsheet included. Easy to attach and remove with a zip.
    9. THAT LITTLE BIT EXTRA
      A rip-tab on the front awning is designed to hold your rod securely when you change rigs or bait.This avoids the risk of the rod slipping and being damaged.

      Response of the brand
      Hi Joe,

      Many thanks for your mail. The Bivvy should be fully waterproof without the use of the overwrap which is to give added insulation and prevent condensation, my apologies if this not the case with yours and there would appear to be a problem with the product. Please could you return it to your closest store or via the online process for an exchange? 
      Kind Regards,
      ROSS FARRINGTON DECATHLON

      I've now used this bivvy on five sessions. Some advise, put some vasilean on the pole ends ( they can stick). Also I have sown in some jml fly screens. Its a shame it's not built in. The bag could be larger, but I bought a golfing bag from decathlon that I can get the bivvy in with the ground sheet still in place.
      By pushing the rear framework up you can make the bivvy small enough for a one man for those tighter swims.
      Great price. Great in store support. Good quality.
      No fly screen.(Bag is too small over wrap no room)

      needs some form of porch for front as can see it being a problem in wet weather when door is open due to sloping front.
