Another CF clone here - Wychwood tactical x compact / Helium SIM / Snugpak techlite bag... theres a few elements about the bedchair that feel a bit cheap (the leg mechanism mainly) and its a bit creaky, but then it was just over £100 new. I find it a perfect size, compact pack up and as lightweight as anything available.
I would look at how much leg adjustment you get with the trakker as i dont think theres much...

I use the Tactical X standard size, with a 10cm Exped megamat and a snugpak fortis bag, comfy as and all folds up in the bed.

Yes Gerry, it just shows how one bed is comfortable for one person and not for another.

I suppose just like beds at home we all have different needs.

Im a fairly light guy at 13 stone and 6ft 1. I have a full memory foam mattress at home which is quite soft so based on feedback the wychwood may just be a bit too stiff for me.

Im also struggling to find one in stock so will probably go for the superlite.

Thanks for all the feedback its been usefull.

Yes we are all different and prefer different things, my levelite is the lumbar bed and not the els, i previously did have a normal levelite which i replaced the elastic for paracord but this was no where near as comfy for me as the newer lumbar bed,
i just thought the wychwood tactical x was a step to far for firmness

now your post just goes to show just how different we all are

and how we all want different things from beds so when people ask for recommendations you will get conflicting advice
I used the ELS bedchair and loved it because it was really firm
just like my extra firm orthopaedic mattress on my bed at home then I wanted to cut down on weight so bought the 2019 Wychwood compact tactical x lumber support model
and I think it is as good as my ELS lovely and firm and I love it

to further cut down on weight I used my Snugpak Techlite this was great until the winter but with a bitter north wind blowing in the bivvy
(( I never have my bivvy door closed or bag zipped up )) my back felt cold so to insulate I bought a SIM and surprisingly not only did it transform the warmth it improved the comfort level something I never would have though possible

so to sum it up I like a bed thats as firm as possible I want it DRUM TIGHT thats why I love the Wychwood tactical X

last season i wanted a light weight bedchair bought a wychwood compact tactical x lumber support later model and hated it, it was far to firm for me even with the elastics fully loosened off, i also tried it with my sim which improved it but not enough, i thought i would get on with it as my main bed is the trakker levelite lumber support which i find very comfy without the sim.

i sold the tactical x on and bought a supalite bedchair which for me is comfier than the wychwood but was improved further when paired with the sim
