RidgeMonkey | Bivvy Lite Elite IR

RRP: £49.99 | www.ridgemonkey.co.uk

Not a company to rest on their laurels, RidgeMonkey have continually updated their range as time has gone on. The latest incarnation of their bivvy light range, includes the Elite IR model. All the models now benefit from the addition of a green beam and this one is no exception, providing a fairly ludicrous 180 hours of light from just a single 4-hour charge via its micro USB charging port.

It has a new, wireless remote control with a smooth brightness function, a quad LED power indicator and the same sealed IP64 water and dust resistant casing as before. It also features the same strong construction as before, although this time, it’s in a sleek, new gunmetal grey finish.

Another nice touch is the inclusion of a fully-adjustable bankstick adaptor, ideal for those who haven’t got oodles of cash for night-time photographic goodies, such as external flashguns, etc.
