Gelert Eclipse 2 Man Tent £24.89 @

5 July 2010

tent So, we've got you sorted with a sleeping bag now all you need is a tent and you'll be totally festival-ready!

Tents  have come a long way. Back in the day, when I was about eight or nine, my brother  had a little two-man tent and we used to sleep out in the garden in it now and again.

It was an orangey colour and was just the standard triangular tent shape; just look at how COOL two-man tents look these days! It's never going to be enough to convince me to sleep in one but I can appreciate all of its features:

  • Tent Type: Dome Tunnels
  • Pitching Area L x W: 3400 x 1450mm
  • Hydrostatic Head: 2000mm (I have NO idea what this means, but it sounds great!)
  • Carry Bag Included
  • Guylines help rigidity
  • Steel Pegs
  • Pitch time: 10 mins
  • Taped Seams for Waterproof protection
  • Double Layer skin
  • Air Vents: 1
  • Number of bedrooms: 1
  • Sleeping Capacity: 2
  • Lantern Point
  • Colour coded poles to help with pitching (a very good idea for the camping challenged)
  • Separate porch area (Cute! You can take your shoes off and leave them there before you go 'inside')
  • Waterproof (erm...essential!)
  • Material: Polyester with waterproof PU coating
  • Colour: Red, Charcoal

survivalBut wait, there's MORE! Also included in this deal is a Military Survival Kit worth £14.99, so you can get all Bear Grylls and Ray Mears when you're enduring extreme festival/camping conditions.  The survival kit contains:

  • Window display tin (no, this hasn't got anything to do with Microsoft)
  • Button compass
  • Night light
  • Flint/striker
  • Cutter
  • Waterproof matches (these have always intrigued me)
  • Pencil
  • Sewing kit
  • Wire saw
  • Survival hint sheet (surely an answer sheet would be more useful * hur hur*)

I think this is a GREAT deal and better still, there's no delivery to pay on all UK orders.
