Newie, the middle one is either a Chub Reflex or JRC Stealth (virtually identical). Scrub that off the list as its definitely only a one man.

if you can affor it then the aqua products 2 man armo2 is the one.

a mate bought one recently and i reckon it'll withstand a nuclear war...so a little heavy rain should be ok i reckon

they're exactly the same as the trakker armo2...except they are handbuilt in brum as opposed to mass built in china.

that said it is a tad on the pricey side of things.

Chub discovery 2 Man, ive had mine for 3 years now, all ive had to do is just apply some seam sealer after 2 years. Ask those I fish with, its plenty big enough for 2 people plus the amount of gear I take for 5 day stints is a little over the top (although very much needed) lol.

If they havent been updated you can pick one up for about 80.

If you want a quality bivvy mate, go for a Viper. Look so much better than those horrible pram hood ones!

Your mates not shown it, but I have a Fox Easy Dome.
Cost's about 175 sheets, really quick and easy to put up (literally 2 minutes included pegging) which is important especially for the winter as sometimes I might turn up during the darkness and in bad weather so I can't really be doing with pole threading.
It is a 1-man version which I prefer as you can get them into tight swims, but still has plenty of space to store your bits and pieces and also you will retain heat a lot better in a smaller shelter than you will a bigger one.
It is a twin-skin construction which aids in preventing condensation.

My 'warts & all' review of my JRC STi 2 Man. It will withstand a lot
of rain - it had to at the recent fish-in!

Did it rain or what Muskie! I tried my new bivvy out at the Northern, a TFG Force 1 man. Loads of room, completely watertight and like the other bivvy mentioned above it has in-built poles, goes up in seconds.
