It's a larger footprint than the tempest advanced 100 bivvy and 15 cm taller so not exactly toilet tent territory and can't imagine it's going to be a problem in the wind.Personally I like aquatex type materials as they are cooler in the summer and I like dark and gloomy interiors...not sure what that says about me🤔...they reckon about 6 weeks until available .

Agreed, small footprint and height is a recipe for problems in wind ..... and risk looking more like a toilet tent

Quest with built in peak looks the best design to me (similar to JRC Bloxx?) - If they can keep the weight down with a good quality nylon (no need for Aquatex as is heavy and overkill for a quick erect shelter) ... Keep the functionality simple, (as fewer zips as possible) and get the price around 200 i think they could be onto a winner.

My thoughts on these tall tempest bivvys is they are going to struggle in high winds.

It was always wind to the back of the bivvy but that isnt going to make much difference with these.

The quest tackle one actually looks the best version of a tempest copy yet......

I see Quest tackle are releasing their version of these shelters( it's described with photos on their Facebook page) and it looks great to me..150 cm high with zip off front and they state will be reasonably priced.might be worth a look ...

You can roll the front back and have an open shelter.

Over the years all tackle companies i have rung up with a specific enquiry have proven to be clueless.
Except Defiant and Bruce Ashby . RIP

Your obsessed Gerry..

Wayne !!!!!!
the reason I want to know the heights is I want it for my River fishing and where I fish I need to have the rod tips as high as possible keeping as much line out of the water as possible and I like watching the tips

SO now that rules out completely this shelter thanks to Simon measuring it ( most manufacturers specs normal are well out)

so now its between the Nash Hide XL OR The new Trakker Tempest 100 T that Trakker have now admitted ((when the responded to my letter and phoned me up a couple of days ago )) they dont know the doorway height until the new shipment arrives soon
