Thanks for taking time to explain they are very expensive carp fishing has gone mad with prices I hope that no one has any problems at that price I didnít like the plastic joints on the legs and the way it clicks in at front be worried about it breaking on the fox tbh

Frontier is alot higber.

Footprint inside will be roughly the same between the XD and the Tempest 150
So you have 1 a higher bivvy and 2 a bivvy that is only 270cm wide vs Tempest 150 which is 315 wide.

There is a photo, think on fb with Frontier and Tempest groundsheet on top of each other, you can see that the Frontier which is less wide outside still gives a lot of space inside due to the flat/high sides and back

in a Tempest, you should actually use a Oval bedchair, these are specially made to create extra space in your Tempsest, with a normal bed it's ridiculous how much space you lose with V shape bivvy models.

Don't get me wrong I would also be happy with a Tempest, but I am even happier that there is finally a 1.5 man bivvy on the market that is high and has a door height of 143 cm

If the weather is good this weekend I will make a photo series of my XD with inner capsule with bechair and measure everything.

Now we all know Fox's reputation so I am also afraid to wait and see how long the Frontier will last, we are already talking about a bivvy that has cost me Ä838 (Ä1067 with overwrap) , but from what I have seen so far of quality it's very good.

Got my innner capsule and vapor peak today, can still get my bedchair and junior bed in it with an extra chair in the front and space for 3 bags behind my bedchair.

Reason why I wanted the XD and the inner capsule, I got an autoimmune disease from mosquitoes and also use Immunosuppressant medication so have to be extra careful an inner capsule is a must for me, that's why I was immediately happy when I saw the Frontier XD, even with the inner capsule it is high inside, you really don't lose much space at the sides/back/front

I bought vapor peak for when it rains without there is no cap that collects the water at the front, will probably always use the vapor peak even when it is not raining

I will soon buy the overwrap also for when I go winter fishing again.

I can assure you the X 100% has no issue with a bigger bed in .. i don't get why anyone would by the bigger one then put a capsule in that takes it down a size or slightly more .. then probably add aa wrap how many bloody layers do people need ??

It was.. and there's me thinking why he wants to sell it 😂
I really like these but it'll have to be the frontier X for that reason or the new Nash hide XL (if they do it in green, not that bird **** camo)

Is the the basic frontier? I saw that on there.
Looks too narrow for a bedchair, I've seen 2 on YouTube and the bedchairs are touching the side

I ordered the inner capsule / vapor peak today, they are out of stock in most EU shops.

Where I usually buy carp material told me: new expected delivery: April, but this is not 100% certain it could also be alot later.

I've just had an hour in the garden playing with it (FOX FRONTIER X ) 1st off it is 100% an X and with no instructions it could not have been easier to set up... I pegged it out fitted the groundsheet ,put in the different doors, opened all the windows and put my big nash bed and sleep system in it and still so much room. A nice gap either end of the bed without touching the walls at all and so much spare room. yes a lot of velcro as others have said, but I have no issues with that at all and can see it's reasons for being there especially to cover all the zips keeping everything storm flapped if an over wrap isn't being used.. The vapour cap was bought separately and not arrived yet but it will make it look so much neater give a peak hopefully keep it even cooler and even more water resistant. I really like you can keep the camo in place or fully open up the side openings in the warmest conditions .. Its the 1st bivvy I've bought from new and 1st impression is it's an exceptional bit of kit and I have chosen well. .... only time will tell.. but I'm definitely smiling ..
