Book of the Bivvy - Cicerone Description
Brand : Cicerone
Season : Perennial
Code : 5030467
A practical guide to bivvy skills and ultra light expeditions. The Book of The Bivvy is a half-and-half mix of how to do it and why to do it (or rather how not to do it, and why not to do it).
Ronald Turnbull's informed, humorous, instructive, wry look at the world of the bivouac is certainly the first, and perhaps the last, word on this unexplored territory.
Accounts of bivvybag nights and expeditions, both nice and nasty, alternate with practical chapters about the technicalities of the breathable membrane, how little kit you really can get away with and the secrets of lightweight long distance journey. The book closes with a selection of the bivvybag expeditions to initiate the bivvy novice into the pursuit's peculiar appeal.
