Currently sat in mine. Its huge. I've got a fox voyager bivvy and honestly I think once the bedchair is pushed right to the back of the hide xl there's not much difference in space in the front half. Went up easy, however personally needs the front infill for me. Unless you're well over 6ft and sit high up on your bedchair I think the standard hide will be ample. I have a fair amount of headspace I'm not using here

There is a video showing how to set up the normal hide. It says the short rear pole lifts the peak up and provides tension when pegged. Presume the same applies for the XL.

do you have any issues pegging it on level ground because where I go tends to be fairly level? lot taller than I was imagining it to be but then that's why I bought It I suppose

I suppose it may be because most banks are slightly sloped towards the water...either that or they are encouraging you to peg the back centre pole in then really extend the storm poles very hard to give the Titan it's strength ?
Other than that I can't think why..mine is the same btw

back pole on any Titan is always a bit short

how come this is part of the design? I had mine up in the garden briefly and it just would not peg down at all. admittedly I had one other peg in and the tension strap wasn't connected but surely that wouldn't make that much of a difference. its a very tight fit getting it all together which i'm presuming means it's stable

oh ok thank thats a real shame
the top hat on a Tempest I found really works well as a heat barrier in the sun with its greater coverage

I will let you know what the replacement is like Pete, may have just been a one off, (hopefully anyway!!).

On the plus side it was relatively lightweight, footprint was reasonably compact yet the internal space/height was excellent. The material was also decent so apart from the snapped pole it gets a thumbs up!

That's disappointing to hear matt, I was thinking of getting one my self they ticked all the boxes for me 👍

But if the build quality is poor it sort of makes me lose interest

I've got a fox ultra 60 full system and the build quality isn't that great on that to be fair... I used to love my old titan 2011 model it was solid and I never had any issues apart from it getting stolen out the shed lol

I know you are not one to exaggerate mate personally my Nash experiences have been mixed....

I have always used their beds which I have never had a problem with and have used Titans on and off for years which have generally been good but i did have one of the T1's which faded shockingly after one moderately warm day in September.....luggage has been very hit and miss, never used their alarms and wouldn't touch their reels, horrible things! I like the Scopes for the odd bit of canal work and stalking, although they are over-priced for what they are.

Really disappointed with the Hide XL going on me though, space wise it looked spot-on for me and the material was good for a relatively cheap shelter......I have heard from Nash this morning and need to return it to TFT so will see what happens there....typically they are now out of stock so i will have to wait an age again!!

Typical Nash imo bud.
A young lad I know recently got the standard Hide. He's just returned the second one (1st one ripped at a seam, the 2nd saw poles snap in the recent big winds).
I try not to slate tackle firms on the forums but everything I've bought from Nash in the last 10 years has fallen to bits and I'm not exaggerating.

Interesting....looks like i may not be alone, will be interesting to see if there are any more problems as people start to use there's more in the warmer months..

back pole on any Titan is always a bit short.
