Best Carp Bivvy? Trakker Tempest Brolly Long Term Review

Trakker Tempest Brolly

This week we take a closer look at the Tempest Brolly by Trakker.

For many years I heard so many anglers praising the Tempest bivvies/brollies and when it was time to replace an old Wychwood brolly I had for years I thought now is the time to invest in a Trakker Tempest.

I’ve now used a Trakker Tempest Brolly in my own fishing for five years and have been impressed since day one. Unlike any other bivvies or brollies I’ve used, its stability, particularly in windy conditions, is unparalleled.

The features

One of its most impressive features is its spacious interior, providing ample room for comfortable fishing sessions. Additionally, the inclusion of two rod straps simplifies rig changes and re-baiting rigs.

Setting it up is a breeze, thanks to its clever design, and its durable materials ensure long-lasting reliability. Weighing approximately 5.5 kg, it’s lightweight and ideal for anglers on the move. Even the T-pegs are thoughtfully designed, requiring no mallet for ease of use.

Brolly accessories:

The Trakker Tempest Brolly’s adaptability shines through its range of accessories, catering to various fishing needs.

For summer fishing, the mozzy mesh front panel offers ventilation and protection against insects, enhancing comfort during warmer months. In contrast, options like the full wrap or zipped front panel provide additional insulation and protection during the winter months.

The utility front porch extension is perfect for two anglers or additional gear, providing extra space when needed. The skull cap accessory reduces condensation and includes twin rod straps for added convenience.

Although it doesn’t come with a groundsheet, a heavy-duty option is available separately. I don’t use one personally so there’s no real loss to me but it’s good to know there is one available if needed.


In conclusion, the Trakker Tempest Brolly stands out as a top-tier choice for anglers seeking a reliable and versatile brolly. Its quick setup and customizable features make it suitable for fishing in any season. Having all of this whilst also being super light weight is a game changer for me.

Over the last 5 years Trakker has continually improved their Tempest range and if I was thinking of buying one today I would go for the brand new Tempest RS version or the T series. The RS version has added so many great additions with even better materials. If you would like to buy online I would recommend Amazon for quick delivery or your local independent tackle shop.
