Prom hoods seem to be the worst for it...
Had them very problems with my MK1 armo and my trident...
Nash titan seems to go down flat at the front anywhere I've used it...
Sounds daft buts that's my experiences...

My experience is a traditional brolly is best for uneven/tight swims. Obviously theres a limit to how uneven or overgrown a swim can be and still be able to put up a shelter, but with a brolly you can push it back into the undergrowth, and rely on the storm poles at the front to give it the stability. You can also splay the ribs out a bit more than you can with the rigid poles on a pram hood.

One of my club waters had a long dam wall with about a 40" drop to a stream at the bottom, and the rules said you had to setup at the back of the swim, which invariably meant there was quite a severe slope away from the water. On some of the swims I could get away with the M3 - using the support bar at the back extended right out, but sometimes the only option was to splay the sides of the brolly out as wide as possible, secure it either side and rely on the storm poles at the front - a bit hairy if the wind is blowing into your face and the re was a big gap at the back of the swim where the back of the brolly was a good foot off the ground and you could look down and see the stream at the bottom of the dam wall.

I can honestly say that the Chub RS plus having got one is no good on uneven sloping or uneven levelbanks so avoid that one.

Ideally you need to be looking for a bivvy with multiple pegging points.

Always found my fox bivvy dome, or any dome tent good on sloping banks.

What's your best overall bivvy for uneven or sloped grounds?

I hate putting up my bivvy up in these conditions ending up with slack corners or the pegs not staying in the ground due to the tightness at the front. Thens theres the winter wrap that just never seems to fit unless the swim is spirit level flat.
