The pram hood system is regarded by many as the bivvy system to have. Proving to be a hit with all as this style of bivvy offers unrivalled stability and rapid erection. The success of the last years model was outstanding to say the least- so we always knew that improving it was going to be a huge task! Well we did it! the NEW 2005 model is the best yet. . . . . . . . . Upon first inspection it's clear to see that the NEW STI has the NEW 5000 Hydrostatic head material- guarenteed to keep you dry- yet upon closer inspection all the little refinements that make this one special become clear. The poles are now 20mm Ultra light 6061 aerospace grade Aluminium- the same as used on our Bedchairs & Chairs making it both lighter and stronger. The inner has also been made with the 5000 material and incorporates 4 breathable mesh panels to make condensation a thing of the past and provide superb ventilation. The dimensions at the rear have also been increased slightly to give a little extra room. Remember when you buy an STI Twin skin there are no hidden costs- you get the lot! Tension strap- Heavy Duty ground sheet- tension pole- quality moulded pegs and a twin skin construction. Fantastic! . . . . <b>STI 1 Man Twin Skin FEATURES:</b> . . . . 5000mm Hydrostatic head waterproofed outer skin- 5000mm Hydrostatic head waterproof inner skin with mesh vent system- Tape sealed seams on outer skin- Supplied with detachable Heavy Duty ground sheet- Ultralight 6061 aerospace grade Aluminium poles- Multi position zip door with P.V.C window and mosquito mesh sides- Reinforced P.V.C coated easy thread tension pole- Bar stitched reinforced pegging points- Bar stitched reinforced guy rope points- Supplied with peg set- SPECIFICATION: 250cm deep- 270cm wide- 130cm high.
