    Default Brolly for Avon Quiver

    Hi there.

    Can anyone help with a brolly that fits a Drennan 2 rod quiver?

    There is nowhere here that stocks any and I have absolutely no idea about dimensions. I Need to buy blind over the net so would appreciate any help.

    Cost is not an issue and it will be used primarily as protection against the sun (gets hot here)

    Would also be nice if it had enough room underneath to take a bivvy bag for any overnighters but not really essential.

    Thanks Jon.

    I should think that any standard brolly would fit if it has a brolly pocket. Any 50inch brolly would roll up tight as any other. The only difference I imagine would be in the length of the spike part. If its too long it could be taken out and put in the bankstick section or simply poke out the top?

    Have a look at day shelters! Korum do one that would serve both purposes! There are others . If you have a quiver containing rods etc over your shoulder and a chair in one hand a brolly like the Trakker tempest or equivalent can be carried in the other or be towed by your Bernese!

    The Preston brolly is uv resistant but would fill a quiver! What about a brolly hat?

    Does this look like it wants to tow anything:

    The korum brolly looks Pretty good.

    Thanks.

    It took a while to decide it was a dog! Korum gear is good! Check the weights.

    Does anyone have an opinion the Greys Prodigy Umbrella:

    Looks pretty good at only 2kg.

    I've never seen it but would prefer, for the sake of 1lb, the Korum which is made of graphite and to a good quality.

    I actually ordered the Korum graphite in the end and receieved it yesterday. was really disappointed when I unpacked it from the box, seemed really heavy.

    My dissapointment did,nt last long though. The extra weight was due to the 3 (apparent) good quality heavy duty screw pegs in the bag.

    The brolly also has a tie down point on the top/centre plus 3 anchor points around the edge. Can't recall seeing this on the web site.

    very happy overall. Seems a good bit of kit

    Jon.
