Fishing Bivvies & Tents
Don't be a divvy, get your fishing bivvy here
A fisherman’s bivvy, or fishing tent, is an essential bit of fishing gear which will keep you dry, warm and comfortable whilst you focus on your session. A good bivvy will increase your fishing ability so when it comes to buying one you will want to consider a few things first.
When looking for a new fishing bivvy you want to make sure you are buying one that suits your needs and is of the right quality. As with all fishing gear, you get what you pay for. Here are some things to consider before making the purchase.
How Often Will You Use It?
If you only head out to the river or lake once a week you might want to consider a cheaper fishing bivvy as it will last you a few years if only used infrequently. If you’re a regular fisherman then you will want to buy a top of the range bivvy that costs a bit more. If you like to fish during the winter, a quality fishing bivvy is essential as you will require a good level of durability and protection.
There are a few styles to choose from when it comes to fishing bivvies. Each has it’s advantages that are worth considering before making a choice.
A standard Cabrio bivvy is spacious featuring a generous footprint providing enough room for bedroom chairs. It is designed for the serious angler who needs plenty of room and the desire to stay dry, warm and comfortable throughout their session. It includes a full mosquito net and even a gutter to help drain away any imposing rainwater.
A Cabrio Hybrid Brolly bivvy is designed for full flexibility in one quality system. It gives you the speed of a traditional brolly system with extra durability, ultra waterproof features and fabric that allows you to stay warm and cool. It can transform easily into a session shelter with extended porch space with infill.

If you enjoy fishing on your own, you have the choice of some really great 1 man fishing bivvies that offer quick set up, good protection from the weather and a solid groundsheet with mosquito mesh to keep out those annoying bugs. Perfect for anyone that wants a no-fuss start to their fishing experience.
If you like to fish with your best mate, it’s wise to choose a 2 man fishing bivvy. Specifically designed for the long sessions by the water with your fishing buddy. They offer a lot of space so that you don’t feel claustrophobic with great protection from whatever the weather brings.
Wraps are extensions of a fishing bivvy that allow for extra features such as space and better bug protection. A bivvy wrap is a perfect choice for anyone who enjoys long sessions or fishing trips. Wraps allow for extra space in the porch for socialising, storage or even a kitchen. The wrap is designed to fully cover a Cabrio bivvy with simple attachment and set up. Once the wrap is attached it creates a twin skin effect with the fishing bivvy that eliminates any condensation inside which is extremely useful during the winter months.
