Carinthia Observer Plus Bivy Tent Gear Review IRR Test Outdoor Military GERMAN ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Hey Guys today i introduce you to the Bivy Tent Observer Plus from Carinthia. I’ve already tested it for a while and will tell you a little bit about it. Have fun and see you later! The bivy tent of Carinthia, in contrast to a normal bivy bag has freestanding poles that forms a kind of dome at the head end. Through this expanded space, the oneman tent is good for observation, wildlife photography
as a hiding place or for hunting. Of course it can also be used as inconspicuous weatherproof oneman camping tent. The Observer Plus will be delivered in a spacious pack sack with compression straps and has, at best, the dimensions of 35x12cm. With these dimensions, it fits well in every larger side pocket of a backpack or can be fastened to the backpack. The weight is incl. Accessories 1385g. At your chosen point the bivy tent is set up in about 23 min.
For this it is simply unrolled and spread out put together the two supplied aluminum rods pushed through the guide channels and finally mounted crosswise in the eyelets. After that, depending on the ground, to protect or improve the comfort you can insert a ground sheet. There are straps in the corners and in the middle for fixation. For information, the optimal dimensions for a good fit are 195x60cm.
I personally dont use the loops and put my ground sheet just below and fix the Observer above. There are 6 mounting points 4 at the attachment points of the rod assembly and 2 more in the foot. Due to the large loops branches can be inserted and weight down. If it should go faster or the ground is too hard. Pegs are not included, so you have to carve or use your own. After this the tent is ready for use. In the entrance area there is a large Lshaped opening with 2 zippers
once across and another lengthways. Each zipper is here protected by a large flap, which can be additionally fixed with snaps in windy weather. Behind the top zipper, is yet another zipper that lays the integrated mosquito net between the opening when needed. So you are protected well against insects at high outside temperatures without having to compromise on fresh air. Via the buttons you can make the opening including mosquito net something more weatherproof. Who has no insects to fear can fix the rolled mosquito net over the two loops.
A third loop at the left side would certainly not hurt, since the net sometimes hangs a bit down. At the top in the middle is still a small eyelet that I use for my solar panel. Let’s look at the front. There is a small fly that protects in the open state against sun glare or rain before dripping water down in the tent. In addition, the contours are less conspicuous. By tighten the fly over the two straps the front is tensed, annoying flapping in the wind reduces
