I have the Tempest Composite which is between the brolly and bivvy. I'm 6 ft 2" and take my dog who has a flat day chair as a bed behind my wideboy indulgence and there is enough room and height for everything. You can open the front up as it rolls up and has press studs but no vents which is annoying.

another vote for the tempest brolly, v2 or 100T

Recently bought the V2 and infill front for a reduced price on ebay and its absolutely bang on for what i need. With the zip in front, i would happily fish in it for a week

Mate of mine put two in a skip the other month, he had a good clearout during lockdownof old bivvies, bedchairs, unhooking mats and anything else he had accumulated over the years, I said he should of put it all on a selling site but he couldn't be arsed.

My favourite shelter by quite a way, everything about them is perfect for how I use a shelter, the door options are brilliant with a zip straight down the centre. If the wind changes you just peg one side down and roll the other up. There were the early versions with the velcro front and no windows and then the ones with the zip on front and two windows, which is the better version imo in the VT5000 material.

The build quality was second to none, the taped seams are still intact on mine too, never let a drop of water in. People moaned about the poles breaking but its easily avoidable, its just a case of making sure the poles are in as far as they can go.

The aqua atom +10 looks similar but the door isn't the zip down the middle and I doubt they are the same quality build as the razorback..

Hopefully someone reissues them soon

With a pioneer it can be set so it sits higher at the front. When pegging the two longest rear rear ribs
Instead of pegging them where they naturally sit on the floor and inline with the groundsheet if using one. Instead push the pegging point inwards about 2 or 3 inches. Do this on the opposite side too.

The front will naturally sit higher. Then use all the lowest pegging points and extend sticks.

Nash Titan XL for me! Small footprint for a 1.5m bivvy. Square back maximises space. Easy to set up. Love mine.

. . .which is precisely why I like my ultralite . . .I'm 6'1" and the height of the door opening (140cms) is perfect . . .don't bash my head on the underside on exit and can get a clear view of the lake even when sitting on the bedchair with legs extended . .

Sat in the new Aqua Pioneer 100 the other day in Browns and it is stupid low at 125cms - quality of the product and thickness of material etc however is excellent . . .would only ever consider the 150 on this basis but the footprint is a bit OTT for a one man.

Why cant they just re-release the 100 in a 140cms version. . ?

The height was the main one really and I'm only 5'8" and have a low Trakker ELS bed, well did just changed, but sat on the ELS I had to stoop to see out the thing unless I was lay down or sat on the floor, the skullcap was alright and stopped condensation directly above but the rest of the brolly would condensate real bad reminded me of the old Nash Titan wet caves, I've never fully closed a door on any bivvy even in driving rain its halfway open so the condensation shouldn't of been too bad but it was running by the mornings, I bought it on a whim really pre the 100T which is probably better at least for height from what I have read, wasn't the one for me flogged the lot to a mate no biggie some people love them and that's fine whatever suits, personally I prefer my V3 with inner capsule even with the extra setting up to the V2 brolly, I have bought a Wychwood Tactical a few months back but that hasn't been out the bag yet but at 1.4 high I'm hoping it's more suitable for me for overnight or two at most as the V3 is my longstay bivvy ie:- a week or more really.

From what I have seen, trakker as well.

There was a post on here last week about it - I think in general chat.

Seen a few for sale that are badly faded as well, don't fancy risking it as they will not warranty replace for that reason either.

Cheers guys, think I'm going to go with the Nash, like the look of the trakker 100T but seen a few things about them turning orange / fading recently.

My son used my Venture Razorback last week. First time it's been up for ages as I have a v1 Tempest I use.
Forgot how good it was, will definitely be using it again myself soon!
