Seeing a few people ask about this bed I thought id give a review after reading kens thread...

I've owned this bedchair for around six months and have probably done 25 or so nights on it. I had a nash four leg zed bed before this and it weighed a ton! The tactical cost me £99 and it is as light as a feather, no other bed I have felt is as light. It has coped well so far and it is worth every penny. I have a feeling it isn't as well made as the fox/nash equivalent but they're triple the price, a couple of bolts have come slightly loose but I've just tightened them up so don't see it as too much of an issue.

It has adjustment on every leg but the legs that prop the head end should adjust longer imo.

All in all I would recommend it for the money

Its a simply constructed bedchair but good on a budget and very light. It is a little hard to sleep on.
I second the use of a airbed underlay. You can get them in camping shops too and are hugely effective and very lightweight. When deflated, they roll up into the bed adding no bulk.
I have a trakker rlx now and I can tell the useful life is much longer than the wychwood, which lasted for 4 seasons of reasonable use.
Hope helpful.

The Wychwood is a good bedchair for the money and extremely lightweight. In terms of it durability and quality of components used it's nowhere near are solid as my Nash Scope Black Ops SS. Nevertheless if someone really needs something lightweight I'd still recommend one 100%.

I've had my Tactical Bedchair (Compact) since released and love it. it is so light - reason why i bought it as one of my waters you cannot get a barrow around so its the old skool way of lumping the tackle around.

like the fact it doesnt have the elastic/bungy one the sides as these are such a pain to get right.

I will be investing in one of the Trakker airbed underlays as per previous post, just to add that extra layer of comfort.

the legs on the head end could be another 2" longeras previously mentioned, but that is a minor gribble.....

overall very impressed on the price, lightweight and 'carpy-look'

Echo the comments below. Awesome bed at a silly low price compared to what else is available. I used one since they were released and it finally died last year so I bought..... exactly the same again. To this day they're still the lightest on the market as far as I'm aware. Brilliant bit of kit.
You can improve the strap by tying/wrapping it round the frame a couple of times to tighten it up.

Couple of points to mention I have had a few bolts come undone and the strap is crap especially if you want to fold your sleepping bag up in it. Apart from those couple of minor points for the money it is good välue and very light.

I have started using a trakker air mattress and it has transformed the bedchair and made it far more comfortable and warmer.

I'd like to echo the comments by Josh. Just got one myself to replace my Restbite X, which although very comfortable was getting too heavy for my knackered back to be lifting. Anyway i'm 6'3" and 15 st and got mine from the Bristol Angling Centre where i tried the compact and standard sizes under a supa brolly they had set up. I was surprised to find the compact was big enough for me and with the non cord/elastic centre section its nice and firm and i have found it to be very comfortable on the 5 nights i've done on it so far. I've slept well and haven't woken feeling uncomfortable. The compact is 6.5kg so light as a feather. I also use a self inflating mattress with a snugpak fortis bag both of which fold up in it. I paid £95 for it and worth every penny. As josh said time will tell if the quality stands the test of time but at that price i'd happily buy a new one every 2 years.
