Aqua Products founder Chris Manifold created the brand after noticing there wasn’t a bivvy on the market that suited his carp sessions. Not wanting to give up, he decided to manufacture his own, and thus Aqua Products was born. This was back in 1990, and over 25 years later the company are still going strong as the demand for high quality bivvies hasn’t ceased!
Manifold’s personal desire to have his own perfect bivvy bore a company who strives for perfection, and it is now know as the premier brand for high quality bivvies.
Aqua Products designs all its bivvies in house, working with a dedicated team of carp anglers as well as its own production team to create innovative new designs that continue to revolutionise the bivvy as we know it. Aqua always puts the needs of carp anglers first, and this ensures that the bivvies they produce are functional and practical. The design team are on hand to ensure that these practical products are stylish too, and the production process guarantees the longevity of these bivvies.
Based in the North West, all of Aqua’s design and development occurs in the UK. This translates into products that have been designed with the modern British carp angler in mind. Although Manifold now lives at the other end of the country and focuses his time on rearing fish in his fish farm, he still has daily input in the design and development of the Aqua Products.
Aqua Products’ bivvies come in a huge variety of shapes, styles, and designs. From compact one man bivvies and brollies, suitable for quick overnighters or a rainy day, to luxurious two man bivvies and 60 inch brollies made for longer trips in more intense weather – Aqua really does have a shelter to suit you, whatever your needs. Of course, all Aqua Products bivvies and brollies come in Aqua’s own state of the art Aquatexx fabric.
Not content with being on the cutting edge of bivvy and brolly design, Aqua also produces and outstanding range of luggage and fish care products. In their fishcare range you can still see some of the original designs from the first run of products, proving that Aqua Products have been creating state of the art tackle from day one. As they say in the business: if it’s good, don’t fix it! The range also features many brand new and updated products, and Aqua is bringing out more sophisticated gear year on year.
Aqua Products aims to keep you warm and dry, no matter what the weather throws at you. It even produces a five season sleeping bag that can withstand extremely cold temperatures. Aqua TV shows you exactly how to erect each of its products, as well as providing tips on care. On the website you can also download a free PDF on bivvy care, so your bivvy won’t let you down when you need it the most.
It’s hard to think of a product Aqua doesn’t provide – it even makes ‘Bog Bags’ so you’re never caught short on the bank side. Even these are made from top of the range Aquatexx, as nothing is worse than soggy toilet roll. Aqua Products are anticipating your needs before you do!
