This is a high-end survival item ideal for the professional or devoted outdoors person. Essentially a near waterproof form of shelter (bivi) for the individual or group, the material is designed to maximise temperature retention to prevent hypothermia and frost bite. The larger versions include insulating layers which work to keep you warm down to some very cold temperatures. For those interested in bird watching or stalking, the camouflage patterns, particularly the “mountain” camouflage, blends in very well with UK landscape.
Jerven AS has been the supplier of its specially created Jerven Bag protective tarp (or Fjellduken in Norway), to the Norwegian Armed Forces for over 30 years. It is also in use with the British, French, Swiss and Danish Special Forces.
The Jerven Bag King Size is the largest of the Jerven models, measuring 143 x 220 cm. The King Size can be therefore be used by one or two people and is perfect for guys over 6' 2" (or even girls, perish the thought). Due to its size, the King Size model is in our opinion the most useful and versatile Jerven Bag. In addition to its tough outer shell, the King Size features a Primaloft lining of 60g/sm to give you extra warmth and comfort in cold conditions.
The Jerven Bag is made from a coated polyester, with aluminium coating on the underside, which reflects body heat back like a survival bag. The bags feature double sided YKK zips around three edges to allow you to vary the shape according to your desired setup. Included are a pair of 3/4 length sleeves that you can attach or detach as you wish and a hi viz orange rescue flag.
