Avid Carp have been carving quite a name for themselves recently and their products have received a good deal of praise due to their innovative designs and high quality materials.
The Avid HQ bivvy is a perfect example of a fishing shelter that has been designed around the angler’s needs. Built from the highest grade materials this new unique concept utilizes extra space with its separated frame system which provides a more stable bivvy along with a greater floor space providing room for the biggest of bedchairs. The HQ comes with a clip-in inner wrap. This inner is fully breathable and removable eliminating all condensation. The inner wrap is not attached to the groundsheet so it can be left in place when packed away so to not increase the bag size and mess caused by sewn-in groundsheets.

There’s no shortage of supposedly revolutionary bivvy designs out there, but when you get down to it, most are nothing new. This one, however, is a nice “stand up and take notice design” with some really clever features. It’s received quite a few plaudits in the press with its easy-to-use concept and certainly gets a big thumbs up from us.
