Got my Fox Easy and ive got to say its a lot better than i expected - it does what it says on the tin - quick to put up and down and i was sort of stumped to how sturdy it was - solid - couldnt be more pleased with it - im only 5"-6 and its more than roomy for me on the day sessions.More room in it than expected to - well made and looks the Dogs - check it out - if yer 6 foot+ it might be a no no me thinks for day session without a bed chair-coz youd have to bottom out with a low chair - apart from that its a thumbs up from me - Happy Days Indeedy !!

Just want to add received mine the other week from Eric's, thought lets put up in the garden as worried about put it up and packing away, No problem what so ever great design,

My points,
The pole that does the front shade has to be threaded through but it has to go under the pole eye that the cross member goes in. The gap is tight!!!! and hopefully stretch a little,
Poles and cross ribs go in easily never had a problem put in back bend slightly slip into the front hole.
Ensure you clip the cross strap in first though before putting pole in.

Taking down, remove pegs, poles cross strap, drop shelter on ground, fold in half, grab the middle of the shelter and squeeze just pull top and bottom together done, slip on the elastic to hold together, Slid into bag easily!!!

Great bit of kit was very stable when I put it up, this is my short and day session shelter from now on. Yes the material is light but its what you need for lightness and portability, don't think this will rip easily.

Fantastic review. I completely agree with every word you say. That fact it goes in your Bedchair and ultimately is up far quicker then a brolly or s bivvy is just super easy. I fish with the camo supa brolly mk2 and before that the mk1 - never had a single issue with them but I wanted the ES aswell for super easy set ups additionally my logic was if I'm doing 2+ nights then this can actually act as a seperate throw up for luggage and day session sitting whilst completely maximizing my space in my camo mk2 . Blown away with the bits and a fantastic patent camo style colour they got it just right with the darker shade. Great pics mate

As I mentioned I went out bought the whole camo lite offerings, I just fancied it all. I look after it and keep it all over 5 years I expect aswell

Back from first session with fox easy shelter....

Great piece of kit again not everyones cup of tea but if your fishing swims with long akward walks or tight swims or just day sessions ect its perfect...if iam fishing a handy swim then i'l use my Bivvy.

Weather was bad last night rained all night with high winds....not a problem. Very impressed to be honest. Iv the standard trakker bed and it was ok, but to be honest ill be on look out for a compact version...
Its Super light weight folded inside my bedchair...here people on about how flimsy they look !! Thats a lot of sh*t ...only concern are the tension bars..takes a while getting used to them. They arnt the usual extending type as you probably know , you have to gently bend them into postion . But you get the hang of it after few Attempts. It came with full zip in front and optional full zip in mosi mesh...and vents at back.
For me it was a toss up between the easy shelter and a brolly....but as i tend to fish for pike in winter and i wanted more cover than a brolly could offer . I do realise you can get overwraps for the brollys but for me it defeated the object. As i wanted to reduce the amount of gear iam carrying due to swims i generally fish.
If your looking for something lightweight , compact and offers complete cover its perfect

At long last received my fox easy shelter .....heres quick review



Very compact and light , ideal for swims with a long walk or tight swims. Smaller than i imagined . Fiddly when you put it up for the first time but as for packing away so easy, alot easier than i thought. Check out you tube for video .trust me its as simple as it looks.
Once its up its solid as a rock , which did surprise me a little. The only problem is its pritty low so compact chairs are a must ..
Ill put full review up after this weekends fishing trip.....
