CHUB VIZOR 1 MAN.

First this i am posting this from the bank, On a trip and my JRC STI Oval Brolly has got killed by 60mph winds, closest shop was England Angling ( still over an hour) so went to see what i could get, after looknig the website it was either the Trakker SLX v2 or the Chub, they have a Chub setup outside so had a look over it, was very impressed, after going through the specks the Tracker is a very good deal especially with the winter skin but something made me go for the chub,.

First impressions,

Very east to set up, Good quality ground sheet, also includes strap should you want to go commando , size is perfect for me, my JRC Super Cocoon Xlite fit;s in just nicely, with my tackle either side, height is ok no issues there, the front also has a built inn in mesh section that runs full with, also the rear has the massive vents should you need them.

the material is quite thin, it some new stuff that is very water proof, the zips are of good quality and pegging points match up perfectly with those on the ground sheet, as for the ground sheet its self its very well fitting, the bottom of the bivvy has flaps that tuck under the ground sheet to keep it fitting just rite making sure no water can get in.

Stability.

this thing is solid, i set ,mine up with out the stability bars on the main bivvy and its like it grew there, as has been said before if you wanted it more solid you would need bricks and mortar.

thats all i can say for now as its only been up 30 minutes, i will add a report to this further down after some use.

see below pick's coming soon

Just some First impressions on this Bivvy, just got it

1) For the price, its really excellent, once up its solid as a rock (its fairly windy here today)
2)fairly light (7kg) and actually pretty compact, but also got enough room inside
3) got a really nice ventilation feature at the back, nice touch. this can obviously be covered over in the winter.
4) Comes with some nice pegs (as you would expect)
5) slightly oversized bag (always good )

Some cons:

1) the poles have only just got enough bend in them to get into the retaining holes.
2) Bit complicated to peg down, its quite hard to get it the right shape, but when this is done, looks nice.

On the whole, really pleased with it, good bivvy, good price.

I saw Them Smiley - you were looking at the Trakker 2 man with the Peak and someone else put pics on as well?? nothing wrong with that review!!!

Has someone edited the later comments??

Best to stick with the JRC RS STi then

I looked at the Trakker and its much dearer and does nothing more than the RS and the RS has the 2 vent windows in the back of the Bivvy that really does provide and excellent through flow of air and kills ANY Condensation caused by wimps with Bivvy Heaters

http://www.jrc-fishing.co.uk/catalogue/bivvies,909/shelter-bivvies,910/sti-rs,5720.html

Try that link to get the lowdown, and no I am not on commission!!

Its just the best 1 man Bivvy around

Hi All - STI RS - SUPERBIVVY

Got to agree with this one - I have used mine all winter and have not got an issue with anything.

Thoroughly recommended to anyone.

That is unless you like being COLD, DAMP, SWEATY, UNCOMFORTABLE, WINDSWEPT and possibly FISHLESS.



Heard some lads saying " I was gonna get an RS but bought an 'ARMO' instead" - "Wish I had bought the RS now! and saved me 130"

Some People Never Learn - that's what this forum is for!!

STI RS - Review dated March 2011

Hi All,

I appreciate there is already a review of this bivvy but I really can endorse what has previously been said.

In typical bloke fashion, I did not follow the instructions when putting this up and it still took me less than 10 minutes. The quality of materials is clear to see and competes easily with Bivvy's twice its price.

The ground sheet is heavy duty and the pegs look like they will last a life time.

My only niggle (but this is the same with all Bivvy's) is the time and effort it takes to get it back in the bag after use, but thats a small niggle!

All in all, I would thoroughly reccomend it!

Ive had a look at your post .Whilst there is nothing wrong with it,this thread is for reviews only.You posted in the wrong section buddy, and Stef forgot to point this out .Either that or hes tired of pointing it out to members .
