Chub AirBrid Bivvy
To non-anglers, a fishing bivvy can look like nothing more than a freezing night sleeping rough outdoors, but anglers know better than that! A quality bivvy can mean being toasty warm, protected from the wind and rain, waking up to the very first light of day and continuing the important business of carp fishing with only a couple of sleepy steps needed to get there. That’s luxury living, is it not?
Chub have been helping to expand angling horizons since 1994 and have a great reputation in the world of bivvies. The Chub AirBrid Bivvy is a good example of this angling vision because it makes getting set up a very simple job indeed. Wrestling with elasticated poles in the twilight simply doesn’t come into it – all you need is a decent air pump. Instead of hard and relatively heavy aluminium or carbon fibre poles, the supporting elements of this bivvy design consist of replaceable ‘air poles’ which are inflated to provide form and support. These pole elements have been ‘pre-angled’ to ensure every inch of internal space is made available to you and your bedchair. This is no compromise option either; inflatable bivvies perform better under adverse weather conditions than their hard-poled rivals. The AirBrid Bivvy also has an air pole in the door peak, an innovation that Chub claims is a first for fishing bivvies.
It features a 2-way door system which includes ‘back draft’ ventilation, found only in Chub products, to help keep the bivvy cool in hot temperatures. The window panels can be zipped up entirely with the same waterproof material that covers the rest of the bivvy, or you can use transparent panels to keep an eye out when the rain is lashing down. Of course, mosquito nets are included for use in the windows and they can be found in the front panel, too.
And it’s waterproof. That should go without saying but this is seriously waterproof, with a 10,000mm hydrostatic head rating. If jargon isn’t your thing, you can think of the bivvy fabric being able to support a narrow column of water 10m high without leaking. We cautiously suggest that not even a British summer can approach this limit.
Its olive-green colour is one much-favoured by carp anglers and other useful features include a hands-free rod strap system to help you rig the rods easily, dual inflation points, and the choice between 1-man and 2-man configurations. You could do a lot worse than let the Chub AirBrid Bivvy keep you warm at night when you’re away from home… A wide range of bivvy accessories is also available to improve your lot even further, so why not take a look?
