FIRST-LOOK REVIEW: Solar Tackle SP Bivvy Mat

Yes, it’s ‘just’ a rectangle of fake grass to put in your bivvy or under your rods, but we reckon plenty of anglers will buy one.

RRP: £19.99 | www.solartackle.co.uk

The fake turf is mounted on a waterproof splash mat 75cm x 50cm, with a pegging point in each corner, and can be used as a footwipe at the entrance of your bivvy, or next to your bedchair for a comfy landing when you dash to put your shoes on at night.

It can also sit beneath your rods like a traditional splash mat, stopping grit and debris tainting your reels in heavy rain.
