Cyprinus Base/Base HQ


Recommended Posts

Afternoon folks. I'm looking at potentially buying the Cyprinus Base Bivvy. Now, the adverts I've seen is for a 'Cyprinus Base' but I keep seeing references online to a 'Cyprinus Base HQ' - is it the same thing, or is the HQ a different or better model? 

Cheers!

The base essentially doesnt have the vents. The base hq had the vents. Ive got a base 2 man and picked it up for approx £150 with a winter skin. Good bit of kit for the money 👍

Cheers pal. I've bought the 1 man Base (with overwrap). I think it's 'OK'. There's no way it's a re-badged Aqua though. The poles, pegging points etc are fairly low quality, in my opinion, but in reality are probably up to the job.

Good value, but not top quality.  👍

Yes as you said. Nothing to write home about however I suppose you get what you pay for. However if something breaks there customer service is top notch . I broke the block on my typhoon storm bivvy(totally my fault as i found out after watching the setup vid on youtube) they sent a new block out no questions asked within 2 days. I thought that was pretty good of them to do so to be fair.
