I have the Mk3 2 man. I must say its probably the best bivvy I've ever owned. I do like a bit of space and there's not that much out there or there wasn't when I bought this probably 6 years ago now, that offered the kind of space this provides. I bought the winter skin for it and that is fantastic for long bad weather sessions.

I can get two Nash Wideboys in this with plenty of room to spare. The negatives are it must take 30 minutes to properly set up and pack down. It weighs a ton, which doesn't particularly bother me as I use a 24v Power Porter, they're not made anymore so getting spares is going to be difficult.

I took this to France about 4 years ago and the rain that came down on that particular visit was biblical. I recall sitting under the main canopy remaining perfectly dry.

You won't be disappointed. I had my original titan for 15 years so I'm hoping to get the same out of this. If I see a nearly new Mk4 2 man on ebay I'll buy that and store it away.

All the best.

I have this bivvy. I rate it highly. Yes. It takes time to set up. But itís very sturdy with lots of room. With the overwrap itís gives you a nice porch area for storage. With anything the more you use it, the quicker you can set it up.

Never set up a trakker so can't compare will have to take your word for it. Personally never had a problem with connecting/disconnecting the poles on my 2 x DT's with elastics they literally fit themselves. Now the old nash s7 i owned that was a fight to remove the sections for sure lol.

Either way i have already decided on my next 2 Bivvys when the time come but my DT's has given me no reason to upgrade just yet.

The day you set up / break down a Trakker compared to a double top you will immediately notice that the poles are much easier to handle on the Trakker, and 5 rib system vs 3 rib system makes a huge difference.

You seem to be misunderstanding the original post. He is not asking for input on what Bivvy to buy he already bought the DT. Bit ruthless guy asking for advice on his purchase and you keep telling him to buy something else lol.

Also you can get a brand new mk4 2 man with over wrap and additional heavy duty ground sheet for around £400 where still available due to being discontinued. An Titan t2 is £700 for the pre camo versions. As per my post no doubt there are better bivvies out there but not for the "price".

Out curiosity why did you get back ache putting up the dt and not the slk? Find it strange as both pram hood even though dt has an additional rib section.

Either way putting up a complete 2 man tent in under 4 minutes totally pegged down takes some doing. Pegging for me take more then 4 minutes generally as where i fish the ground is hard. To erect the actual Bivvy takes a couple of minutes

I can't comment on your QC issues with DT. Own 2 over last 3 years they have been chucked around and used in every condition imaginable and still good as new.

fastest time I achieved with setting up the Double top was was 9 min 24 sec and pain in my back
+ on session 4 1 elastic of the inner dome broke...

I put up/take down my Slx v3 plus in less then 4 min, we have used the SLX intensively for 3 months and it is still 100%

you can't compare both in quality, the Trakker is a level higher,

With what I now know I would go for the Armo V4 plus (if the price is nice) or a Nash Titan T,2 maybe there will be a nice Bf deal

lol how long did it take you. Curious as on my own i set up the giant 2 man in under 10 minutes pegged complete and even then the pegging points take the longest.

As for review I own both the 1 man mk4 with overwrap and porch and also as mentioned the mk4 giant 2 man.

I have have owned both since new. Quality is good enough I have had no issues. Sets up quick for me anyways bar the porch on the 1 man, that takes a bit of time. Love the inner dome. Good to keep bugs out and also 2nd skin to help against condensation etc.

Love the additional porch areas to put bags. Front panels can be folded away if required. Front door either mozzie net, closed or plastic clear window front. Front door can be opened normal or used letterbox style.

Overall for me personally I have nothing bad to say about them. Have had my 2 man out in 60mph winds at bluebells with trees falling down and didnt skip a beat. No doubt better bivvies out there but imo you wont get better bivvy for the money these goes for nowadays

I sold my Double top mk4 2man after 5 sessions

Took way too long to set up / break down for me, I didn't like the inner capsule either

Then bought the Trakker slx v3 instead, which is much faster to set up / take down (3rib system) material of the slx is also better quality
