Recently I have been asked for free-standing tents quite a few time from customers. The reasons from which have generally all come down to one reason…..pitch flexibility!
I myself am a big fan of free-standing tents – as a keen kayaker/canoeist you sometimes don’t have the pitch choice that hikers and mountaineers have…..sometimes a rocky island,a pebble beach on the side of a river, or a small protected beach is all you will find to camp on.
The original choice of shelter for these needs is the Tarp, a flexible waterproof sheet to create a canopy. We stock the Robens tarp, a great priced waterproof sheet, with multiple tie-in points, allowing plenty of opportunities for multiple shelters. A great option to really get outdoors and experience the outdoors!
If you’re looking for a bargain free-standing tent, look no further! It has twin porches, a 6000mm hydrostatic head (a 6 meter column of water on top of the fabric before it leaks). It pitches outer first, or outer and inner combined, and has plenty of guylines!
One hundred-and-something pounds for the two man is a bargain, but if you want to step up your game you need not to look any further than the top tent brand….
We stock several of their Tents, including the Free-standing Soulo (1 Person), Rogen (2 person) and the ultra-gnarly Tarra (2 person)
These tents are hardcore, designed to cope with extreme conditions, day in – day out! They are never going to be the lightest weight tents, but you will be hard pressed to find a better made, more reliable tent – choice of explorers and adventurers!
Come in and speak to us, see the tents up, and see if we can do you a deal!
