11 of the Lightest Brollies on the Market

lightest-brollies-for-carp-fishingThis week we continue our “Lightest” series by taking a look at the lightest brolly style shelters currently on the market for carp anglers.

Brollies have become very popular over the years because they offer more mobility, quick erection 😉 and can be packed away compactly than compared to a conventional bivvy system.

With so many benefits of owning a brolly style shelter, we’ve compiled a list of the lightest covering all the features, materials and other benefits of each brolly featured.

For this guide, we chose not to feature instant pop up style shelters such as Fox Easy Shelter and Nash Scope Rapid Deploy Bivvy because they lack the stability compared to a brolly system. They also don’t offer as much internal space which is required for longer sessions.
