Lets just say it was of a hell of a lot more advanced a design than any of the crap out there now, and that's the problem - NOBODY will ever come out with anything new anymore.

As for a British made BIvvy again - never ever going happen! 99% of Tackle Companies are now run by accountants, back in those days they was run by anglers for anglers.

Was not a problem with my Aqualite Gerry – as it had no joints that split at all mate, it did not have removable Tensioning Bars either – as they was built in also

one of us is deluded !! it aint me !

And yes Keith
I think Aqua`s biggest mistake was discontinuing its best ever bivvy the Aqualite sadly I had to recently sell mine due to a permanent life changing shoulder injury which means I cannot now never pull apart a pramhood joint

Get Cotswold to work with jag on the manufacture as they did on the pod bag, just need Chris to design something special. Unfortunately just like some carpers ( not anglers) that cash in on others hard work someone will take the design to China and have it copied and sell it at a much cheaper price and then those that couldn't afford the original will be telling us how we were ripped off and mugs for buying it.

The original Pioneer was very large and rather heavy, but Chris got the design spot on, with the size of it the Block hardly had to do anything.
In fact I set up one of the first five made with Roger Seaton when we was fishing on “The Wood” , the material was far superior to the later stuff, had a kind of velvet feel to it, remember walking around in it – zero light came in, was like being in a big green Igloo!

But then people started moaning about the weight, and the Pioneer Ultra light was developed, smaller, lighter and the Poles/Skin under one hell of a lot more tension due to the increased curvature of the Poles.

Like I said mine sheared the S Clip about five hours after I had built my own up myself at Lower Healey (Aqua factory location in Chorley) I remember tying it to a rope via the block and hoisting it up in the air under a powerful spot lamp to check for holes in the skin.

Off memory I did try Carbon Poles in the Ultra light - but the tension on the skin started to pull the stitching apart.
Carbon Poles did work in the Aqua Lite thou, as I fitted them in to mine for a while – then removed, sent off for evaluation to Chris I presume (I made/fitted another set) If I was Aqua I’d be more inclined to re-release a Aqualite.

Bradders, ask them to put me at the very front of the queue if that ever happens. I'll pay top money to. Sometimes carp fishing does not realise what it has, until it is gone. He needs to come back and show them all how to make a bivvy in 2019.
