to be fair the Shelter is not that heavy by itself that weight is incl pegs groundsheet etc

Weight: Approx 14.5kg (broken down as follows g sheet 2.7kg / pegs 1.2kg / bivvy 6.2kg/ infil 1.8kg / storm rods and outer bag 2.6kg )

Absolutely no chance. Iím a self confessed aqua fanboy. But I just donít get this at all. To me the tempest is the natural evolution of the pioneer. Better in pretty much every aspect.

Besides Iím more than happy with my cyprinus dpm4. Just wish it was in aqua green, but not enough to pay the £300 difference!

In a time when we are all obsessing about cutting down on weight, aqua bring out a 15kg shelter. No thanks.

Hi Saw one of these in Browns today. IMO the only thing going for it is the colour.....

You get a peak with the wrap. At an extra cost. I think that tells you all you need to know about aqua's; design , sales strategy, and profitability. I refuse to believe that schisters, and there are many of them. Cannot design a good product first time around. It's not like they are having to come up with the original prototype design for the umbrella, with only paper as material. I'm sick to death of being sh***ed by companies taking the p**s out of me. Get it right first time or don't bring it to market. Trouble is unless consumers boycott overpriced crap , things will never change. Rant Over.

Early reports i have read is that the material is more like the original models in terms of thickness. The erection poles and frame are high quality and heavy duty. Although lower, this may be the reasoning as to why it is a heavy bit of kit .... Quality comes with weight ... Early reports I am reading suggest it is very nice bit of kit

yes, also looked at it at the show today, and also I thought that it, despite its good looks, is a bit on the small side

No not at all, apart from the height, cost, weight, slow set up and lack of peak. Itís an absolute winner.
