I have compared mainly in terms of quality.

Compare to the Pioneer 100 was with the Pioneer 150 in mind (only 100 in shop) and T1 camo is 275 cm x 197 cm so no big difference vs XD 270 x 210, although the difference is big inside

Not so sure if T1 is proven quality, have seen many with problems


In Belgium we are allowed to fish on private waters at night (first night will be next weekend).

T1 and pio 100 are both smaller bivvies than the xd so pointless comparison unless trying to compare quality but the titan and pioneer are proven designs. Fox produced some great bivvies in the past so let's hope this one is a return to those days.

If it leaks at the block the MK2 will have material over it with
A velcro panel. I'm off to the patent office.

Why what is wrong with the block or are you just guessing it will have issues based on your expert opinion

I compared the Frontier XD in shop side by side with the Titan T1, pioneer 100, tempest 150, the where all 4 in shop next to each other (my budget was 1000euro)

I am 100% sure that I made the best choice with the Frontier XD, the marketing of Fox about the Frontier is a joke (yeah right 5 years to development lol ) but the Frontier is Top

This is an example of what social scientists call the 'Supabrolly Effect'. A perfect storm of group hysteria whipped up by clever marketing and social media. And fuelled by a group of anglers suffering from collective amnesia.

I must admit I keep looking at this bivvy despite telling myself each time that it is Fox and to just walk away.... ....why oh why do they persist with ****ty clip in groundsheets though?

No One can use them over night yet for a decent time so that might be a reason, not slating the frontier just saying that might be why, every bivvy ever made always has a couple come back

I am very difficult to please, but the material feels strong and the fittings were superb. The elbow joints are so easy to put together and click faultlessly in to place. I also love the way that the bivvy stands up after you pull all the arms out allowing you to peg it slowly and precisely. The height is also a plus. I have the XD with inner dome. 165cm is comfortable for me to live with, especially being partially disabled. The other aspect i like is in the winter, its easy to add the winter wrap, click the 3 poles in to place, roll back and peg, instead of pulling the wrap all over the place to peg it ! All in all I think it is a winner. If there is anyone in the Norfolk area that wants to have a look before buying please pm me, would be happy to oblige.

Very disappointed with TFT. Ordered in September and then told after their first delivery of the Frontiers that they had under ordered and they did not know when the next lot would be in ! I am sure I would have still been waiting if Vale Royal had not saved the day !!!!!!
