I have a compact size Trakker ELS for one/two nights and a standard size ELS for anything longer they have been by far the best beds I have ever owned, not the lightest bed even in the compact but weight over comfort is something I wouldn't sacrifice especially as I'm getting older, coupled with the Trakker layers 2 to 4 season bag I have which under the 4 season layer is the warmest I have been in any bag I've owned during the Winter never once woke up cold/feeling cold, my feet are the biggest problem I have always changed socks for bed but once there cold I'm done even hot water bottles in the past have never helped last winter or this one I haven't even had a need to get the hot water bottle out.

I had the SS3 when it first launched prior to the shroud being developed when it had the mesh webbing under the mattress, first cold night was the last time I used it and it wasn't even Winter just a cold draft blowing in the door I felt like I was in a sky diving simulator then Nash put out the shroud and wanted the punters to pay the price for it for one of their extensively trialed products

Haha....I was probably lying on my SS4. Thinking F##k me this is bloody uncomfortable. It sags like my nanna's tits, draftier than windy castle & gives me back ache trying to manoeuvre the bloody thing. ...now where's the dog sh1t emoji.

Trakker ELS, Inflatable Mat, & a good sleeping bag

Those Nash Sleep Systems are garbage!

And how is the sleeping bag in the fox flatliter ? Do you do winter nights with it ?
I've been doing some research and the avid is at least £70 more than the fox flatliner . But to be honest that's not much of a concern when spending 250 / £300 anyway.

What makes you say that the avid wouldn't be as warm as the fox?

I use a fox flatliter mk2 and highly rate it , as do everybody else I know who owns one .

I do like the look of the new avid sleep systems and would like to try one of those . Iím donít think the sleeping bag would be as warm as the fox one though

No need when you have the right gear, plus bivvy heaters can be death traps

Never needed one. Decent clothes and sleeping bad is more than enough.

Is there any need for a bivvy heater When using a decent bedchair sleeping system like the avid ?
Until now all my night fishing has been done mostly in the summer months , but there's so much good fishing to do all year !!
It seems a shame not to take advantage of it ....
So do you think I would need a bivvy heater along with a the sleeping system ..
I'm not sure there's much point as I'm sure bavy's leak heat like a sieve !!!

Ive got the avid memory foam one and its very comfy - legs are a pain in the ass though, shame no locking mechanism on them to stop them flopping about when setting it up/taking it down but once up lovely.

Mine is the standard width one. I've used a wide it before and didn't find it comfortable tbh. As for those saying it's not warm at all, I don't get it. Plenty warm enough imo

Had the SS3 then a SS4, through a friend in the trade, were good but not perfect. A mate had a Flatliner, which I tried, then sold my SS4 that week for the Fox.

The Fox was far more comfortable, for me, anyway.

Its lasted well, and by the end of the year Ill buy a new one. Ive got my eye on the new Solar after mates have raved about it ( just the bedchair, not the sleep system ) If the SOlar doesn't suit me, Ill happily buy another Fox Flatliner kingsize, a lovely nights sleep.
