The final product, but certainly not the least favoured, the Tactcial Brolly has peaked interest where we didn’t know possible. From setting up at consumer shows to the countless messages via social media, the enquiries have come thick and fast for this unique, compact system that can be customised to your requirements. With the brolly retailing at £169.99, the solid or mozzi front and the heavy-duty groundsheet at £29.99 each and the clear door option for £19.99 there’s a solution for whatever you face. Although the wait may be a couple of months yet, we’d recommend speaking to your local retailer to reserve yours from the first shipment to avoid disappointment. It’s fast to erect, lightweight, has a compact footprint and the camo accent has been incredibly well received as something different to the norm…
