    I was looking closely at these just the other day and ordered a katabatic gear one instead. Hope you find one!

    Be interested in knowing the full cost assuming you are based in the UK. Looks good, I am looking for a bivi bag that is light and has a waterproof floor and breathable upper for use in a single skin tent/tarp in winter on longer hikes.

    I am not in the UK, I ordered from outdoorline.sk based in Slovakia, so i just paid a tenner delivery but no customs. I ordered the one with bigger mesh panel (Piñon Bivy) and breathable upper same as the borah, I can really imagine its not something UK vendors would be tripping over themselves to stock!

    I'll step away from this one then @RobH :thumbsup: it was on my stealth list but can manage with my smaller MLD for a. While longer.

    Nothing worse than a bidding war when the only real winner is the seller :thumbsup: good luck. With it.

    I'm starting to use a foam mat, so can manage with my regular size for a While. Was fancying a larger one to use with an air pad or with a quilt.
    I keep looking at the mld soul bivi that's just a splash/wind bivi.
    The long wait would spoil summer :D
    Good luck with the bidding :thumbsup:

    Yeh similar, I am looking for a light weight bivi to use in a single skin shelter/Tarp. Just needs to be splash proof with a waterproof bottom to ensure my mat/quilt does not get wet on multi day trips, especially winter. Was one on here a week or so ago and I missed it.

    Hi @Chiseller you can get back in on the Bivi, already at £95 with postage so looks like it will go for above retail at this rate. I am backing down and will wait until the Katabatics come back into stock or try a MYOG solution.

    Cheers... But that means it's gone about £25 above how much I value a 2nd hand one.
    Mainly due to the Borah being a poor splash/wind bivi compared to Mountain Laurel Designs superlight solo bivi (which I have).
    I'm going to save up some more and order the superlight solo with a dcf base.
