It's funny how most have decided the cam locks will fail even before anyone actually has one and has reviewed the quality of them. Cyprinus is doing a brilliant job in breaking the monopoly of the big guys and all people do is try and find fault.

can you not make cam locks tight again if they get a bit worn anyway ?

If you think having to wrap tape around your £450 bivvy frame to keep it working is acceptable then go ahead. I wouldn't call that acceptable on a £100 item (Delkim battery cover advise so you can use them in the rain direct from them anyone?)

the Cam locks put me right off straight away. I have had camlock banksticks etc in the past & not one of them has lasted more than a season before they start to wear down. Nice concept but let down again by using something that if it worked more companies would be using them instead of thumb wheels of knurled collars (like the Solar PosiLock) which would have allowed the same sort of tightening without having to worry about things sticking up into the skull cap or wrap. I will buy a Trakker one as at least if anything goes wrong I can take back to my dealers front counter and get them to get it sorted instead of boxing it up & having to pay to have it sent back to them and waiting forever for a replacement.

But these three camlock poles need a stable support in the form of the two stormpoles, don't they ?
Guess without the locked lever from the standard Tempest they would follow the gravitational force downwards, if they are not supported by the stormpoles.
Think this is a significant difference to the Tempest which you could just unfold and put anywhere without additional poles.
Just my impression, maybe I am wrong.

ive got a cyprinus HQ 2 man it uses the cam lock system never seen any slipping .i had a trakker tempest before and that was great to erect but leaked and the pole system was poor with elastics snapping all the time ,the quality of the cyprinus i have is superior even though made in the same factory ,it cost a nearly a third of the price inc a overwrap.
just my findings

Green version looks much better IMO. Customer service for me has always been spot on but i have only ever returned stuff that wasnt damaged or that i had a actual problem with and simply changed my mind.......

Like for like against trakker i would take Cyprinus all day long as they use a heavier grade Aquatex and much cheaper....

I had an issue with a bedchair that was damaged by a courier & a fast & light brolly where the material had been pinched.

Both times their customer service was spot on & they couldn't have been more helpful.

Looks good to me and at a very reasonable price too!

As a lot of you have already said itís going to be a case of if this is actually any good after a lot of use like the other tried and tested brands have been doing for some time. In the case I wonít be forking out for one just yet and be a guinea pig just yet

And completely agree about the after sales help is gunna be key to the success of this product!!
