Shakespeare Cypry QT Excel 2 Man Bivvy sells normally in the region of 80.00 so the chances are, unless the seller has access to some really cheap stock, that it is a copy or similar to the Shakespeare one
If you're planning on using it for a few sessions you might be better off spending that bit extra and buying the genuine article as there's nowt worse than spoiling a night session with a broken bivvy or one that leaks - the Shakespeare Cypry has been used by several anglers on here, myself included, and I've yet to hear of any bad reviews [:)]

Edit: I've just done a quick search and it is listed HERE for 79.99 but there are also some others on there cheaper depending on what you want [:)]

Its looks very much like the one my wife bought me for Xmas.
She paid 50 quid for it.
I've not used it yet but have been told that its probably more of a small tent.
If you intent to do a lot of night fishing I would buy one of the easy erect bivvy's and save yourself a lot of work.

I'd email the seller and ask a few questions about the product ... tell him I'm uncertain and see whut he can do to bolster my confidence .... his feedback's good but there's not much of it - only 70 items ... so I'd ask a few questions .... anyways from my point of view it looks a nice number I'd buy it ... but can't yet due to operation and recovery ... I'll just have to hope there are some still around in august :)
