where can i get a decent tent
I need to upgrade one of our tents I've been told to try go outdoors but wondered if anyone from bristol knows of any army surplus stores as I need other bits and also what the best make to get.

Go Outdoors is fine for variety but they are more expensive than other shops. There is one near me and when they have a sale, as they just had, the prices reduce to what other shops sell things for.

RE: where can i get a decent tent
Depends on what sort of tent you're looking for? If you want one of the brightly coloured plastic monstrosities, then go outdoors is alright. Blacks were having a sale a few weeks ago, they had a massive 8 man tent discounted from £600ish to £55. The wife wanted to buy it - even though we've got an 8 man tent and a 5 meter soul pad. Couldn't justify it though, even if it was a bargain.

Check out SoulPads or Bell Tents - good stuff, will last much longer than the others, can use wood burning stoves inside them - and they look cool Smile

if you go on the tents page there are loads on there, quite cheap too, if i was looking for a new tent i'd like one of those Army Ridge tents...but then i'm old fashioned i prefer Ridge tents to any of these new fangled designs, i once spent a very windy holiday in North Wales and in the morning my ridge tent was the only one left standing, all the frame tents had blown down!Big Grin
