Not just an extra!
Took my two youngsters along the toughest parts of the Larapinta trail for 4 days. Rather than carry two tents, I chose to carry a 2 man and the Macpac Cocoon. Not only was the extra weight minimal, the set up was a godsend. I was amazed how comfortable the sleep was and had NO condensation despite the outside nighttime temps reaching the zero mark. Plenty of room for me and my important gear. I'm going to use the bivy as the sole shelter when I tackle other treks.

Excellent piece of gear for those overnighter`s by yourself
After a problem with erecting a new tent recently, in blizzard like conditions, where the instructions were for a previous model, I decided to erect my Bush Cocoon on the back lawn before heading bush. Very quick & simple to erect.Blew up my air mattress & rolled my new sleeping bag out to make sure everything fitted OK. With the shape of the Cocoon, I had a bit of storage space above my head for gear that I wanted protected from the weather.
With the hoop arrangement over my head, I didn't find the Cocoon any bit claustrophobic.
Got to my selected camping spot, quickly got my camp up & headed off till dark for a hunt. On my return,hopped into my sleeping bag inside the Cocoon after tea and had a very comfortable night`s sleep. Got some heavy showers during the night and I hoped Macpac`s claims about being waterproof were right. Awoke on daylight to no rain and lovely and warm and dry in my Cocoon. Unzipped the outer skin and put my arm out to find everything outside was saturated. Up & zip closed the Cocoon with all my gear I wasn't taking with me, inside, with the knowledge that they would keep nice & dry.Was away about 5 hours during which there was quite a bit of rain. Got back and a pool had formed on the Cocoon like it would on a large plastic bag. Tipped this off and opened the Cocoon to find everything inside completely dry. Packed up my sleeping bag & mattress, then quickly shook all the bush matter off the Cocoon and packed it away in its bag. It took me 30 mins to have some muesli & coffee, clean up my camp and have all my gear packed ready to go.
With this setup, the total weight of my air mattress, sleeping bag & Bush Cocoon is 2.8kg and are very compact, so don`t use a lot of the room in my pack. All were purchased at Macpac and are exactly what I need as I am now a couple of years north of 60.
What I like about the Cocoon, is that even when having a camp set up for a few days hunting, this will give me the option of hunting those far away spots right through the Golden hour & not having to worry about struggling back a couple of Km`s to camp in the dark. Just set your Cocoon up where you end up.
Compared to the rubbish we used, I can`t believe how good the gear is you can get today for the money you have to pay, and I would recommend to anyone serious about spending a bit of time in the outdoors, Buy the best you can afford, as over many years use, it will end being the cheapest gear you could have bought.
Good Luck
