I used the Cruzade 55″ brolly system throughout the winter and I’m very impressed. I’m not the smallest of anglers, but there was plenty of room for me and Max, my little carp dog.
The ultra-compact boss gives maximum space – dimensions D210cm W255cm H125cm – and the material is 190D double-coated, a tough and totally waterproof fabric that repelled rain and kept at bay all the elements that winter could throw at me.
On hot, summer days, you can remain cool because the Cruzade has a detachable front panel, a clear window, mosquito mesh and an air vent at the back. All are attached with heavy-duty zips and nice bright orange tags so they’re not hard to find in the dark, if you’re one of those anglers who likes to zip up at night.
Waterproof PVC groundsheet, four storm poles and heavy duty pegs are included, with metal pegging points for extra strength. An over-sized carry bag is provided, so there’s no more ‘forcing the brolly into the bag’. You can fit everything back into the bag, easily and quickly, which is handy for those hasty pack-ups when the rain is threatening and you need to get everying stowed.
Everyone who has seen the Cruzade has been impressed with it, and I think you will too. This is definitely a must-have for those of us that value speed, convenience – and comfort.
