Doyle, I have found that this happens on my Armo and on my Nashie bivvy.

Guy on Cemex had his Tempest V2 Air leak from the boss area. Apparently bought less than 4 weeks ago

Silly question perhaps, but I was told to keep my bed chair away from the sides/ back of the brolly because if it rains, and something is pressing on the material it will let water seep through where its making contact.

Myself I donít think itís true. Is this garbage?

I've got both the tempest brolly and tempest air and I prefer the nylon material over the aquatex material I find aquatex materials when wet takes a lot longer to dry out. If the tempest brolly was out before I bought the tempest air I wouldn't even have considered the tempest air

Looking at the material on that brolly, I would say if you can afford the Air, get it. I don't doubt the brolly is a good shelter, for the money, but it does seem to a budget brolly. That said, I wouldn't expect more than a few years out of an Air.

I disagree and wouldnt be put off by the nylon trakker use. Over the years their nylon bivvies have never let me down .... In fact it "weathers" in some cases better than Aquatexx bivvies i have.

Just done my first night under the brolly and love it. I was a bit scepital when putting it up in garden but give it the benefit of the doubt. So glad I did. Your right on the material, it is a little thin but beads nicely. I was worried about the rain after previously using a brolly system. It pissed it down last night and all my gear and me kept dry. If the wind blows in your face you will get wet without a front but you will with any shelter without one.

For the money these really are a superb piece of kit. I can't see a problem with it lasting as long as it's looked after. I've already got the wrap so that's the winter sorted, not tried fitting it yet though .

Pram hoods were my preference but then I owned one of the first aqua pio ultralites, would hope the tempest air and wrap would be as good but like the cayman pro for it's lack of rear vents as less to go wrong, not sure the tempest would be as good as a pram hood in gales force winds.

I have no complaints with the Brolly so far .... I wouldn't pay Tempest money up the range though. Just a personal preference to bomb proof pramhoods if spending big bucks

Like Kev I am considering the air v2 and wrap or cayman pro and wrap, did compare this tempest brolly with the v2 but the brolly is obviously much cheaper and although very good value I cant see it lasting.

I did consider adding a wrap myself but it needs pegging independently. Brolly with wrap will be heavier, bulkier and slower to erect than the Cayman IMO. Hiwever you would gain a condensation free shelter if went that route though.

Hi Paul,

I appreciate the lack of a peak may still be an issue, but with the weight saving of the Tempest Brolly and the flexibility of potential for year round use, would the brolly with the wrap be a good compromise? Or would the wrap just be to much messing about?

I personally am considering either the Air V2 or Tempest Brolly, but would just keep the wrap either in the car or in the barrow bag for when I knew that I would need it.

For minimal extra weight and marginal extra set up time (if include peak and tension bars) you get the option of either an open front shelter thru to a full coverage bivvy with peak. It's also a more comfortable height without being a too big footprint. To gain maximum protection with Tempest it needs pegging very low.

All pics taken at 'Standard height' or using tension strap as guide to width
One with the evening/day session kit
