The forum would be no fun that way though .I think it looks very good and will be keeping a very close eye on feedback.I have had my fair share of trakker bivvies that have been utter dog *****.I now have the v2 bivvy and its actually a good one,a lad I fish with had 3 returns before he got a good one.I think most have issues from time to time

Sheesh..... some of these comments. Just a few observations. While the block has similarities to others, it has some unique differences and appears to have a very quick set up time. The poles come up almost vertically at the sides to maximise space while keeping the footprint sensible. The frontier and the x models are much more competitively priced than the tempest and It looks to be just as versatile at the tempest/typhoon.

It"looks" like a good alternative to the tempest. I guess build quality will be a case of wait and see, but I've had my share of ***** from other companies over the years.

If it's not for you, fine but let's wait and see what the feedback is from users before writing it off.

google the old fox explorer bivvy. it predates the tempest by a few years. and it had a skull cap.
its similar to the titan. this new borrows heavily from that. but with more of an evo arrangement at the front.

Unless Trakker have some sort of deal with Fox, I'd say sue Fox to oblivion for direct copyright infringement.

About time they had their arses handed to them for ripping of other people's ideas.

Really like the look of it me. I certainly wont be buying one straight out the shop though, been stung way too many times with being the paying field tester and I do agree with a poster below, any bivvy that comes with storm guides instantly makes me worry about how stable it is

Getting up around FudgeMonkey money by the time you've bought all the add ons for the XD, 689 with inner capsule then add mozzy mesh vapour peak and winterskin comes in at 1060.00 notes might get it a bit less when shops mark down on the RRP.

They weigh about 4,5 kilo.

Indeed the material doesn't bead the water, that worried me a bit.

Some nice touches on these, not sure about that block long term though. Also they look heavy, I'll take a guess at 7kg stripped back for the small one lol

What an awful video, more cheese on that than a triple cheese pizza with a stuffed crust......the guys monotone voice is as dull as dishwater....

It's a massive no from me just for the claims in the video alone, do Fox think we are all stupid.....5 years in development my arse, more like 5 minutes to email a picture of a Tempest/Titan/Typhoon to some geezer in China saying, "do us a mash up of this pal".....they are taking us for mugs, complete arrogance....

The material looked crap, not even slightly beading up when wet, far too much plastic that will soon go brittle and crack and any shelter that comes supplied with storm guide ropes screams unstable....

Every company has bivvies that are a similar design
but nice to see a few slightly different tweaks like the wet weather vent and the blackout lining
