Fox Royale Classic Bivvy
The Fox Royale Classic from Fox has been designed in order to replace the original Fox Royale Shelter. Not only does it feature all the best elements from the original shelter but it also has loads of brand new features to bring this bivvy up to scratch for the modern carp fishing fanatic. The first thing you’ll notice about the bivvy is its two rib pram hood structure. This ensures that the Fox Royale Classic is both quick and easy to erect and you won’t have to waste time on the bank fighting with complicated pegging and pole systems. Simply clip the frame together, peg in the rear, and pull the front forward over your groundsheet. It really is as quick and simple as that and it makes the ideal shelter for the novice solo angler looking to get started with longer session carp fishing.
This pram hood design incorporates a storm peak, which is built into the bivvy. This not only gives you shelter from the sun on hot days but, more importantly, it also provides you with shelter from the rain. When the weather is really nasty, this storm peak directs the rain flow down the sides of the bivvy, preventing the water front landing and resting on the door area. This allows you to sit with the door open or with the mozzie mesh panels exposed, without risking any rain incursion. This is just one of the great features that make this bivvy the perfect angling companion for both the winter and the summer months.
As mentioned, the bivvy features mozzie mesh panels on the front of the shelter. These have solid green blinds, which can be dropped down at night or if the wind and rain is in your face, but otherwise these panels allow air flow through the bivvy. They also ensure that you do not have to spend the evening batting away the attentions of annoying flies and bugs, too. The bivvy comes supplied with full frame support and tension bars, as well as heavy duty pegs. These provide exceptional resistance to high winds. The hard wearing nylon cover provides exceptional resistance to rain, too, making this the ideal bivvy to own in the winter. If you require even more protection from the elements you can also purchase a separate bivvy wrap to create a twin skin – significantly reducing the risk of condensation in the cold winter months.
The Fox Royale Classic Bivvy features the two way barn door system that Fox is famous for, allowing you to use the bivvy in a letter box manner.. The front door panel itself is constructed from clear PVC, with a solid green option supplied too, and the whole front of the bivvy can be rolled open. This turns this versatile bivvy into an open fronted shelter. This bivvy comes supplied with a heavy duty groundsheet, so you can pitch up on any terrain knowing you’re not going to cause damage to the inside of your bivvy. It also gives you a dry base on which to store your luggage, which is perfect if you arrive at a swim after a heavy downpour.
This bivvy is incredibly easy to transport, too, as it is supplied in its own carry bag. This carry bag is oversized, so you don’t have to worry about rolling the bivvy up into a precision ball to transport it, and it even has ample room for storing additional pegs should you require it.
Fox is an international brand with a British heart. As such it understands the very changeable nature of British weather, and has designed its Royale Classic as the perfect all-round bivvy for the modern UK angler. Although the bivvy is at an entry level price, it is suitable for much more than just the entry level angler.
