The Highlander Hawk bivvy bag is a breathable, waterproof and low-cost military style bivvy bag that’s excellent when it comes to keeping you comfortable, try and war, even in the heaviest of downpours. It has a very low profile, making it perfect for stealth camping, is ultra-lightweight, and is rated for all 4 seasons, making this Highlander bivvy bag ideal for use throughout the year.
Constructed from AB-TEX Trimax Laminate, a material that has been specifically designed for use in outdoor clothing and accessories, the Highlander Hawk bivvy bag is highly breathable and waterproof. This is due to the design of AB-TEX, as it works to allow moisture to efficiently evacuate whilst preventing rain water from getting in. It also features a wire-supported mesh screen, designed to increase ventilation and provide greater protection from midges and mosquitos.
All in all, the Highlander Hawk is a great bivvy bag for those on a budget. It’s lightweight, highly waterproof and compact, making it our favourite and most highly recommended low cost bivvy bag on the market.

Have tested in the woods and on the beach and I am not disappointed. Delivery was also very quick, 9 May 2015
Had spent months looking into which bivvi to buy given that I use a micro tarp and so need the bivvi to be truly waterproof. Have tested in the woods and on the beach and I am not disappointed. Delivery was also very quick.
Great product, Great Price!, 27 July 2014
Recently purchased one and on delivery noticed weight is 920g, not 600g. Harry (seller) was very helpful in his explanation (must use manufacturers description, even if incorrect) and as product looked the business decided to give it a go. Practiced outdoors beforehand and it worked well, not water ingress. My hiking mate liked it so much I ordered one for him as well. Recently used it overnight in Scotland and it was great in a light rain, no ingress of water. Looking forward to the Cairngorms end of August, will update afterwards.
If you want a bivi bag this is the one and the seller is very good.
not got it wet yet, but bivvied under a …, 9 July 2014
not got it wet yet, but bivvied under a tarp with it, plenty of room (i am 5’10” and “generously” proportioned) also plenty of room to put a full length matt inside with room to spare. i left the top open so i’m not sure how roomy it would be zipped up in a downpour, but then its a bivvy, not the crown plaza hotel. only issue potential i can see is the waterproof zips leave about a 1cm square gap where all the zips meet up when fully zipped up.
