Experience.... So you agree your judging this bivvy on past brollies... I am sure your bivvy manufacturer of choice has released a bad egg...

Not not really, the ultra 60 brolly that fell apart before my eyes was in my imagination too, forgive me if I question the pedigree it's from experience and sweet .... all to do with "appearing cool".

In comparison to trakker aqua and a few others the price point is good, plus I got 20% off from vale during black fridwy

Regarding your Guinea pig comment, you do know that fox have made some cracking bivvies over the years and to judge them on the supa brolly for every bit of tackle they release is ridiculous... But hey you wanna look cool on the forum

I was just looking on Ebay, bit behind the curve on this bivvy but I see everything apart from the shell is an extra. Reminds me of walking into a well known car dealership where everything beyond the steering wheel is an option.

Really like the look of it, but it's a lot of dough for the privilege of being the guinea pig.

Think I'll wait til the long term use reviews come in which tell you the bits that have fell apart.

Nice one mate. I've not owned a tempest but my brother who has the v2 said if he had the money and needed a new one he would also choose the frontier. Shock to see the following comment mock the bivvy without owning it

Got my frontier x today and very impressed. Material certainly isn't paper thin and very good quality... Goes up and down quick, noticeably taller than tempest bivvies. The block is solid and the elbow joints are bang on. Flat back is great and has plenty of space in front of bedchair

Well made, well thought out and having owned a tempest for the last 8 years the frontier imo opinion is better alround. Pricing point spot on in comparison to the tempest....

Why the manufacturer? If you had an issue with a pair of Nike trainers, purchased from jd sports, you wouldn’t go direct to Nike would you? Why is fishing tackle different? Cars, whilst in warranty, go back to where you purchased them, not to head office. Out of warranty your on your own. Yes some companies will offer to fix there own stuff, out of warranty, but at your cost. But during warranty, the shop should take responsibility for it, wether they swap it or send it off.

? And not the manufacturer of said alarm. Even if Fox had an issue a call or email would usually suffice initially.

Those are all made in the UK so hardly a fair comparison and as has been said first port of call is the retailer but he bought them second hand so no warranty, may have been better going to daletronics or a local electrical repairs.

Mine moved in to position easily when setting up which I was surprised with as I've hear stories of other new bivvies being really tight until its been used. Following instructions for setup was easy.

I struggled at first taking it down because there aren't instructions to follow. After having a little play around you have to push up slightly on the middle pole (shouldn't need much pressure) and then on the block there is like a button thing which will release the catch for the middle pole to come down. Really impressed with how quick it is to fix into position and put down on my first attempts.

Lived the groundsheet too! Goodluck!
