Bivvy is bigger than i thought so pleased with the space, quick to put up and down, well pleased with it.Really pleased that you are so happy with your bivvy – thank you for the feedback
I have now used this Bivvy and its great the build quality is very good, and with a little practice it does go up in less than a minute. When it was used I was on a 4 day 3 night session and it coped with wind rain and some sun admirably, The accomodation in the 2man is massive and would easily fit...Brilliant, thank you for the feedback.
Very good bivvy. sufficient room for 2 with large bedchairs. No instruction issued but simple enough once you have put it up and down a couple of times.Thank you for the feedback. We look forward to being of service in the future.
my brother thinks the force 8 bivvy is the bees knees, and the reels are really good,Thank you for the feedback. We look forward to being of service in the future.
A Great bivves nice and big just what i wanted as i can get all my tackle in one place, as i am Disabled and do not like having tackle all over the place. God bLESSThank you so much for leaving this feedback and great to hear you are so happy!
This is my secon tf gear force 8 bivvy and it's so quick to put up, my mate couldn't afford a new one so I sold mine cheap and that's why I bought a new oneThank you for the feedback. We look forward to being of service in the future.

That's great, we look forward to hearing from you again.
The TFG 8 Bivvy is really good value for money. 20 sec erection is achievable with practice. I've only used it once so far in good weather but am confirdent it will do all I ask of it. Particularly like that it is double skinned in the sleeping compartment.Really pleased that you are so happy with your purchase – thank you for the feedback
I went for two man as I take my little girl with me, I would recommend this bivvy to any angler! It's very spacious and very easy to put up..does exactly what it's advertised as. Well worth every pennyGreat to hear you are happy with both the product and service. Thank you for your comments.
Have not put it up yet, but at least it comes with a decent bag that I know I can put it backThank you for the feedback – much appreciated.
excellent bivvy, put it up in garden first and took a few minutes to erect because instructions are not quite clear. but once mastered had it erected in no time on the bankside, nice and roomy and well made bivvy......Thank you so much for leaving this feedback and great to hear you are so happy!
Fast delivery, excellent serviceThank you !
This is the 2nd force 8 I have had. The 1st has been used & abused for quite a few years & is still ok but had the money so bought a new one. It's the warmest & most spacious bivvy on the market for the price.WOW! Brilliant feedback. Much appreciated.
Not used for fishing yet and the time to put it up seems very short but I hope to reduce it a lot, the instructions are not that good ( would be better in colour ) but when you know which parts are called what it should go up a lot faster.Thank you for this positive feedback. Your comments regarding the instructions have been passed to our team for consideration.
I found that if you unpack your new Bivvy slowly and taking note of the instructions supplied.Erecting and repacking was a doddle.
Force 8 Bivvy is the future now.
Delighted to hear you are so impressed with our super fast delivery service and our Bivvy - many thanks for the feedback

The bivvys seems fine. I tried a 'test run' in the garden and it took a lot longer than what is advertised to put up. But, maybe with practice I might master it. I am worried though about how sturdy the 'Lever arm' is when erecting. I have a feeling this could be a weakness?Thanks for your feedback. I am sorry to hear about the difficulties that you have had setting the alarms up. We will be in touch to discuss this and any concerns that you may have with the bivvy.

All the best

OK . Majot criticism was the phone costs . Fishtec have chosen an expensive connection charge for customers, which provides them with a share of the phone connection profits . I do not think this is correct . However it is their marketing decision .

Their delivery and service was excellent howe...
