M3 Compact Review

RELIABILITY IS A HUGE MUST

Over the years I’ve used many different bivvies and shelters and always believed they could be made better or were simply missing something. The M3 Compact however, is a different ball game and ticks all the boxes.

For me, it's by far the most universal and lightweight shelter I have had the pleasure of using.  No need for any heavy storm poles for support, due to the design of the bivvy the poles are never under any tension so there is no way it can break on me and let me down and with most of my fishing being a good few hours drive away from home, reliability is huge must. With both the peak and the whole front being attached via zips, turning a simple, almost “brolly like” shelter into a full on bivvy takes seconds and again, this is another edge should the weather take a turn.

Although this shelter is named ‘Compact’ I find it to be the perfect size for me, with enough room for a good sized bed chair and all my bits, yet small enough to cram in to the smallest of swims. A top bit of kit that covers every situation I’ve been faced with and stands up to any weather thrown at it.
