    From the website:

    ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED as a survival tool for Swedish air force pilots, our patented Bivanorak is a bivy bag/sleeping bag cover, rain garment, portable windbreak, and emergency shelter, all in one – and all in a 575 g/20 oz package. The Bivanorak is made from a lightweight, tough, polyurethane-coated waterproof breathable fabric and has fully taped seams.

    Bivy Bag/Sleeping Bag Cover
    The Bivanorak is cut long and wide to provide room for both a sleeping bag and pad in bivy bag mode. Its lower hem and cuffs have draw cords (those in the cuffs are elastic) which can be secured shut to keep warmth in and rain and snow out, and its long front zipper makes entry and exit easy. The large hood will easily accommodate the hood of a sleeping bag, yet it can be cinched tightly around your face. Combine a Hilleberg Bivanorak and Tarp to create a highly effective – and incredibly lightweight – shelter system.

    Windbreak/Shelter
    Pull it out of your pack and climb in. The wind- and waterproof material, adjustable cuffs and hem, and generous hood make for a roomy, comfortable temporary refuge! It’s a versatile alternative to our Windsack as safety equipment for one person.

    Rain Garment
    The Bivanorak is worn anorak style and can be adjusted to a variety of lengths. Simply pull the bottom hem up inside the body of the Bivanorak and tighten the draw cord around your waist or tuck the extra fabric under your pack’s hip belt. There is even enough room to carry a backpack underneath! Pair it with rain pants or chaps and you have superb wet weather protection. Its single size and easy adjustability allow both the tallest and smallest person to use the Bivanorak.

    I’m in Holland.

    Postage is included in the price. I’ll provide the Track & Trace code as soon as I’ve dropped off the parcel.

    I am not sure, if I want it.

    I find it interesting, but unfortunately forgot the result of my thoughts about it, so I have to think about it once more.

    I am different equipped but with nearly the same weight and Quality...

    When did you buy it?

    Does the postage to Colone change the price of that 700g parcel, or is that the similar money?

    Do you sometimes come along in Cologne?

    In which town do you live?

    (I am several times a year in Ostfriesland.)

    I’m in Rotterdam. Last time I was near Cologne was over 10 years ago...

    Postage to Germany is the same as the UK and France: starts at EUR 13,00.

    I bought the Bivanorak end 2016, early 2017 IIRC
