Been looking for a while, but figured I'd post here before paying the big $$$
Must be size long (I'm around 6-2)
If you have to pay to go new for the hooped bivi, I noticed that Rab have revamped the Ridge Raider into its third iteration which should be available from September 2021.

It is nice to see the weight come down (my second version is 985g) , but one loses the stronger eVent fabric.
Thanks for the info!
I like the look of the (now discontinued) Ridge Master with the raised foot box, so good to know the new Ridge Raider is a bit more in that direction.
Not sure I want to wait till after the Summer though!

In practice, one can just place a pannier or small backpack in the foot of the second version of the Ridge Raider as it is long and I imagine the same is true of the Rab Unishelter. One of the latter bivis was for sale on the LFGSS forum recently and it may still be available,  here it is:
