    Default Wrap for fast and light?

    Hello

    As far as I can see aqua don't make a winter wrap for the fnl.

    Does anyone know of a winter wrap which would fit nicely over this brolly, with a decent door and mossy panel option.

    Thank you

    I don't do anything for the fast and light as to put a zip on the skirt under the ribs the material needs to come off the frame and on the trakker and aqua brollies it means drilling out the rivets which is a total nightmare as they spin and get hot so end up damaging the material.

    A message to Aqua: make a wrap for the fast and light, just an overthrow. The demand is there.

    Agree, bring back the 9 rib full system. The 60 in the Heritage is a step back in my opinion-no Mozzi panels etc

    This is amazing, when Aqua had the 9 Rib System out everyone complained it was too expensive and wanted a striped down version... Now there's only the striped down available everyone wants the system!

    Yes I never understood why they stopped making both. I still don't quite understand why they stopped making both.

    The fast and light is expensive once you buy poles and groundsheet should you require it. It's not far off what they charges for the original.

    The other thing that's beats me is why quite a few manufactures do a brolly system and just the brolly but without the zip. So if you buy just the brolly and want a full system you have to get rid and buy a new one. It can't just be so they make more money?

    Its because they have little no control over the zip or where its mounted.

    One front may or may not fit on a brolly or if it does it probably wouldnt line up correctly.

    Having it available as a "kit" just isnt practical unfortunately.

    That's makes no sense to me. I've had a trakker ultralite for years and have purchased 2 seperate fronts and they both fine.

    Also trakker sell the front as an option

    Made in the UK with some quality control versus made in the far east?
