Keeping warm, dry and comfortable remain at the top of everyone’s list and what better way to enjoy what the outdoors has to offer than with a generously proportioned tent.  Snugpak’s ‘Journey Quad‘ @ £289.95rrp  is a four-person tent with an extended living compartment for storage.  This ‘fly first’ pitching tent has a generous bathtub style groundsheet, is supplied with a tent footprint to protect the groundsheet and is ideally suited for weekend trips or longer expeditions.

Once inside your tent, you’ll need a warm sleeping bag to get a good nights sleep and Snugpak has a range of sleeping bags to suit all seasons and budgets.  If weight is a consideration then the Softie® 3 Solstice with Snuggy Headrest @ £124.95 comes in at only 900g.  With a comfort rating of 5°C and a pack size of 16cm x 16cm this mummy-style bag with its Softie Premier polyester filling should guarantee a comfortable nights sleep.

Weighing only 630g, the internal pump allows for quick and easy inflation using a built-in sponge-like air pump and utilises a two-way valve to allow air to enter without escaping when pressed down with your foot.
