If it’s really cold I light 6 tea light candles together in an old small pan. If you zip the Door down but leave a small gaps for ventilation. Takes the chill off.

The problem with bivvy heaters is they can kill you. Buy a decent bag and have hot drinks.

wrong, stupidity is the killer not the heater

Well the stove to a make hot drinks can kill you as well.

But even when they make super safe electric heaters, i wouldn't want one, because when you move away from them you feel even colder.

The problem with the heaters though, is they make you feel even colder when you move away from them or turn them off.

These bivvy heaters are fine for taking the chill out the bivvy and warming you up before getting in your bag BUT you must only do that and have the door open at all times......

That’s horrendous, so tragic.

These days, winter fishing needn’t be uncomfortable... Long gone are 50” brollys with two Millets kip bags and a bin bag over the end of the bed to stay dry... Not cheap but in 2021 buy the right kit and the weather can literally do what it wants... Gas heater? No thanks, no need, and in my view you’d only feel colder after switching it off...

Smartwool.
Snugpak.
Buffalo.
Montane.
Baffin.
ECWCS.
Icebreaker.

Not cheap but wrap up in that lot and anyone can fish, and fish well, in any weather the U.K. will chuck our way.

That's sad mate..

It's one reason I never zip up my bivvy door,even though I would never use a gas heater, I mightve mentioned I got given three by family members one year..if I remember I gave em to the Cornwall Air ambulance charity ..

I hate being zipped up or locked in...

This thread reminded me of something I read in the Angling Times many years ago..

It went like this ,father dropped boys off to go fishing,during the night it went cold..boys zipped down the bivvy doors,it mightve been a Nash canvas,they lit the gas cooker..

Next morning father came to.pick them up

The boys were dead..
