Any feedback on these, as they have been available for a few weeks now?
Any teething faults etc?
Cheers 👍

Cannot Fault them Gerry, I own quite a few Wychwood items now and have to say apart from this little hiccup have always been happy with their quality and price point for their products.

That is outstanding customer service on Wychwoods part as apparently its the suppliers fault for fitting incorrect zips and as you say as soon as new fronts are made they will be sent out

Did it yesterday afternoon, they emailed back within the hour saying they have some on order and will be delivered by air freight approximately a month (we will see) but in the meantime I have an infill panel so they said although not ideal to keep it and they will send a new one as soon as they arrive, cannot fault their speedy reply better than I have ever had with many other fishing brands.

Contacted Wychwood direct through email....suggest you do the same. Assured me they will replace asap....might take a while but it is what it is at least they are been honest in the mistake. It's when company's shy away from faults it pisses me off

Did you contact Wychwood direct or where you purchased it from, long story short I ordered all mine from Fishing tackle and bait yesterday TBF to them I received a phonecall from them within minutes to say they had the Brolly and grounsheet in stock but no infill panel or doors they said they had oversold those items and didn't have stock so did I still want the brolly and groundsheet and they would refund me the outstanding which I agreed and they have, I think they have already clocked this issue possibly someone local had bought one and returned it probably.

So anyway straight on ebay found an infill and clear door at Ludlow tackle ordered it and it's just turned up, aside from the Wychwood label cable tied to the infill panel saying letterbox style door it isn't.

Wychwood have replied back to me and confirmed a number of the brolly fronts had gone out with the flaw in the design....lack of letter box ability. To their credit they will be sending out the correct one out to me as soon as they arrive....and I can keep the faulty one. Can't be fairer than that....
Sounds like a batch has gone out to various stores so might be worthwhile if your purchasing the brolly and extras to ask the store to check the front for this.

That's shocking mate. I ordered mine with groundsheet, infill front and mozzie panel, should arrive tomorrow

I will be bitterly disappointed if the infill can't be used letterbox style and a complaint will be going to wychwood and trading standards for false advertising.
