Googling Handiholdall OH came across the above site selling it for 79.96.

We are thinking of the holdall plus one duffel which works out at 120 with Cactus. With the Handiholdall co direct after 10% discount it comes in at 6 more.

We may just go direct for the sake of 6, as at least we know we are getting the correct item, but wondered if anyone knew of Cactus, or also if anyone just looking for the Handiholdall, it may be of interest as a saving of 40 for just the Holdall.

We bought our tent from cactus fishing and had no problems- they were quick and were the cheapest by a mile for the tent at the time.

I would check because the description on their website looks like a different version - possibly the earlier one.

The one I bought doesn't have a base cushion and the 4 poles slot onto the actual holdall and are all the same length.
Also the holdall is the picture is different form the one on the Handiworld website.

Yes we did think this, and we think the picture shown is the old one, my husband called them and they said it is def the newer version. We ended up,ordering from them, so fingers crossed. He also called Handiholdall to advise that other sites selling lower. The girl was surprised and said to,leave it with her and they'd check with their manager. Took his mobile number. When he called back they just said well if you can get it cheaper.... So I'm hoping they checked it out.

I'll let folks know when it arrives.

Ok - We have received this today, and it does seem like the new version. It's all black, it's is 320 litres, 4 poles same length, no base cushion.

Also called them again to double double check yesterday and they assured us again it was the newer version, just that for some reason their website hadn't been fully updated with the new picture and a few other details they noticed when we called.

Pleased with our bargain!

Definite bargain, just goes it pays to shop around.
I haven't had a chance to use mine yet (waiting for roofbars to arrive) but I'm impressed with the design and quality.

Yes we've put our sims sleeping bags Montana carpet and intend putting in clothes and towels etc. loads of room, think it will only be weight that will stop us! Even then it's doubtful.

Thanks for the heads up on the price at Catcus Fishing, just order an handiholdall roof bag, quite a saving at just shy of 80. in stead of 100+.

I have a Handiduffel I bought last year and I Put some stiff board inside and used this as a single large dry roof bag for when we carry a couple of bikes as well on roof and this worked great.

Their products do seem well made and we drove through major rainstorms on way down to Germany last year but no leakage

135litres of space inside these
