The Trakker Tempest 100 T is very slightly deeper and this is how the Specs are displayed Dimensions: Approx 150H x 235D x 250W cm.

my bed is only 200cm so for my needs these are far better ....................but I must say the price of the Quest offering is very significant

No rear vents?

bloxx-vents

The overwrap doesn't, but if i'm using a wrap then chances are I aren't bothered about having vents open

Sounds odd that, the two bivvies I own are the Bloxx Compact + wrap and a V2 Brolly with groundsheet, front, skull cap and utility front. I don't notice the bulk of the JRC against the Trakker to be honest, and truth be known I can have the JRC up just as quick. Even the wrap, because I use awning loops on the pegging points, just throws over and attaches to the main bivvy pegging points with about 4 pegs needed at the front. Literally takes seconds, quicker than putting a skull cap on (I don't leave mine on). I will admit the Trakker is easier to fold down though but not by much. I think the Quest shelter looks great and the price is good!

They were twice the weight of their alternatives which didn't do them any favours imo.

Great design that. Iím amazed it never really took off. That shape but with a tempest/pioneer block arrangement would be perfect.

"without the Skull cap the Quest version is a cross between the Tempest, Hide with a Titan peak. Front is also detachable"

Cobblers It's a JRC Bloxx, I love mine, perhaps it will come back into fashion. I've always said despite the quoted dimensions, my Bloxx Compact always feels roomy enough and I never catch my head on the top (i'm 6 foot).

without the Skull cap the Quest version is a cross between the Tempest, Hide with a Titan peak. Front is also detachable......

Size of 280W / 220D / 150H Looks spot on to me and the standard W / D for most 1 man bivvies nowadays....

Alos, They are hoping to price it around the £299 mark.......

Well if it was Deeper than the width I would have preferred it

as then you would then have the option of having your bed right back with the front off giving you more protection if it rained or nice storage out the way behind your bed if you had it forward when its dry
and if it was windy from behind a narrower profile too

Oh my, Quest really have snuck this in, looks best design of the lot with 20000mm HH, the peak and overlapping side panels .... Now Cyprinus will feel how Trakker felt when they done it to them .... Only real winner at the moment is the consumer

To me, it seems better. Especially the block of the Cyprinus worries me.
