Found it very difficult to set up as the instructions weren't that clear, for a twenty second fastest ever bivvy it took me over half an hour before I went onto you tube to watch a video! After watching that it was easy!
Haven't used it properly yet but it looks ideal for quick over nighters!

First time up it took a while but only takes a couple of minutes now. No Comment
Only used it the once so far, but found the build quality to be very good. Took a bit longer than 20 seconds to put up, but not much more than a couple of minutes. Felt very stable in quite brisk winds.
Plenty of room inside for my bedchair and all my gear.
Overall a very good quality bivvy and g...

looks all ok but havnt had chance to use it yet No Comment
I found the instruction manual a little brief, but after figuring things out for myself I was very happy with the Force 8 Bivvy. No Comment
Once I had mastered the system the Bivvy was up in the back garden in no time - overnighters in the diary now, can't wait! No Comment
Does exactly what it says No Comment
Bivvy is bigger than i thought so pleased with the space, quick to put up and down, well pleased with it. No Comment
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... No Comment
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. No Comment
my brother thinks the force 8 bivvy is the bees knees, and the reels are really good, No Comment
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 bLESS No Comment
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 one No Comment
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. No Comment
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 penny No Comment
Have not put it up yet, but at least it comes with a decent bag that I know I can put it back No Comment
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...... No Comment
Fast delivery, excellent service No Comment
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. No Comment
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. No Comment
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.

trying out over 26-28 may. cant wait ,loads of extra room!! No Comment
Very easy and quick to put up and to take down. Really pleased with it. Plenty of room inside No Comment
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? No Comment
This bivvy is really spacious and simple to put up, just as described - can't fault it. No Comment

Not got it yet out of stock but friend has same one and his is great No Comment
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...
