New for 2010 the M3 Supa Extended wrap the ultimate in bank side comfort. The most versatile wrap we’ve ever made. Offering full front and rear vents the wrap will keep your living quarters cool and tolerable. The cavernous porch area is perfect for extended sessions when it becomes essential to store bulky items such as buckets and day chairs. The Supa wrap is made from our new improved spec Aquatexx reaching hydrostatic head of 14000mm/H20 (mbar). This wrap also helps minimise any condensation you may have previously experienced when using your single skin Armo.
The M3 Supa Wraps fit MKI, MKII & MKIII one man Armos. When the wrap is fitted it converts the 1 man Armo into a 2 man bivvy. Its simply a case of rolling back the sides of the bivvy and securing with the tie backs, or in the case of the M3 remove the infill by doing this it adds an amazing 2 feet of ground space. Buying the Supa wrap converts a 1 man bivvy into a 2 man bivvy. Thus saves you the expense of buying a separate 2 man bivvy.

What does Hydrostatic Head mean?
In simple terms it is an accurate measurement of the water repellency of a material.
Rain resistance is measured as a hydrostatic head in millimetres (mm). This indicates the pressure of water needed to penetrate a fabric. This is simulated, in a simple way by placing a tube onto a piece of the fabric to be rated. Water is steadily added until it forces its way through the material. Just before it penetrates the material is the hydrostatic head measurement.
There are lots of factors that affect the Hydrostatic Head, heavy or wind-driven rain has a higher pressure than light rain, standing on a groundsheet increases the pressure on any water underneath, the pressure of rucksack straps on a jacket increases the pressure on the shoulders and so on...
Fabric with a hydrostatic head of 1000 mm or less is best regarded as shower resistant, with 1500 mm being usually suitable for summer camping. Tents for year-round use generally have at least 2000 mm; expedition tents intended for extreme conditions are often rated at 3000 mm.
Testing method used is BS EN 20811:1992, ISO 811:1981
