A couple of weeks, or so, ago I told you about my daughter's Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award practice expedition that's happening at the end of this month.
One of the things she needs is a Swiss Army knife (the Victrinox Army Knife deal I wrote is still valid by the way; it's a bit of a bargain) along with all the other clothing paraphernalia, she also needs a TENT!
They're going to be carrying huge backpacks and will be wearing big walking boots so I figured a 4-man tent is probably going to be the order of the day; come on, two teenage girls, with all their gear in a 2-man tent...? It would be too cosy even for the best of friends!
So I've been prowling around for some tent deals and came across this rather awesome looking Matterhorn 4-man tent for sale at half price at Amazon.
It measures 240cm x 210cm x 140cm, and has an extra part at the front that measures 120cm. It also has an inner tent made from breathable polyester, a fly sheet, and a fully sewn in ground sheet.
The poles are colour coded and there are easy to follow instructions too.
Along with that the Matterhorn 4-man tent guy ropes are brightly coloured so that they stand out and should prevent people from tripping over them.
If that wasn't enough it has UV Protection and a hydrostatic head of 3000mm making it more than adequate for dealing with a traditional wet British summer - I've no idea what the 3000mm bit means but it sounds quite impressive.
The reviews are good too, it folds up very small as well, so I think we're onto a winner!
