    At 1.98m tall, Dan wanted a tent he could move around in freely and stand up in to get dressed. He also wanted his tent to remain cool if it was going to be a hot summer as his young children would be going along with him.

    We caught up with Dan after a trip to Bestival. Dan told us:

  • Glasto on a Budget

    June 10, 2015 01:00

    Here, Julie Bowen looks at doing Glasto on a budget. Julie says;

    Going to the Glastonbury Festival isn't cheap these days. We've looked at how much you'll need to save up so you can focus on having a great time instead of worrying about money.

    Glastonbury festival

    The lowdown

    The Glastonbury Festival has been going for more than 40 years and is easily the biggest and most famous festival in the UK, with more than 100 stages showcasing the best music and performing arts.

    Where? Worthy Farm, just outside the Somerset village of Pilton.

    When? The weekend after the summer solstice at the end of June. In 2014 it will take place from Wednesday 25 to Sunday 29 June.

    Capacity: 175,000 tickets, plus thousands more volunteers and artists

    Pro tip: Most festivals keep their arena and campsites separate, meaning you can only buy alcohol from their bars when you're in the arena. At Glastonbury you can carry your own drink and food wherever you like, as long as it's for personal consumption.

    If you want to cut costs, bring your own food. However, there are hundreds of delicious food outlets onsite, so try to sample these if you can.

  • Doing Festivals On The Cheap!

    April 15, 2015 01:00

    Festivals are one of the best parts of a British summer, but they can be seriously costly. If you plan ahead and know what's in store, you'll be able to cut your costs and make sure all your money goes towards having a great time - here's how.

    Music Festival

    Festival tickets are expensive enough on their own - Glastonbury 2014 tickets were £222 including booking fees and postage. If you're not careful, it's easy to spend the same amount again when you're there.

    How to save money at festivals

    Before you go, work out how much you can afford to spend and make sure it will cover everything you need and want to do at the festival. If you think your finances can't handle it, try the following: -

  • A Bushcrafty Thumbs Up For The Blaze Stove

    October 31, 2014 00:00

    It's always a joy to stumble across a nice review on the web. Here Craig (AKA: CBJ, Native Traveller) reviews the Blaze stove in absolute detail.

    Click here for the full review at its original source.

    Conclusion:

    I love this little stove. It has certainly performed a lot better than I was anticipating especially in regards to the amount of heat it puts out. There have been a couple of times when I have come in from the pouring rain into a warm tent and it really makes a difference in terms of morale and being able to quickly dry kit out. It has enabled myself and the kids to enjoy colder weather camps and will be a boon for when we start to have the N.E.S winter meets, as we will be able to sit in the warm and dry and do our bits and pieces in comfort. 

    Another great thing about it is it does dry the tent out itself in a very short period in time and after heavy rain the tent has to be dry before being packed away.

    Obviously, this is not a lightweight item and it is intended for base camping. For me it is worth the space and weight because it makes staying out that more comfortable and enjoyable. Also it allows us to enjoy camping all throughout the year.
    I have used this stove regularly and have not yet come across any major problems. All the welding and joins are solid and neat and the heat resistant paint has not come off anywhere. None of the flue sections or fittings have warped in any way.

    For a handcrafted item, the workmanship is of a high quality and the art gone into making it has really shone through.

    All the best
    Craig

  • A Bloggers Review...

    June 19, 2014 01:00

    We found this blog post by Happy Smiley People on the web and thought we'd share it with you. No, we didn't give them a free tent in exchange for a good post. At SoulPad we get many requests to review our products. Many Bloggers and Journalist want a free tent in exchange for a few words, posts, retweets, whatever. This example came in last month:

    "If you're up for it I could start tweeting about needing to get a tent and asking people which is best, and then carry on to publicly make my decision and then photograph it all and give glowing review."

    You see the problem here? They'd already made up their mind: a free tent for a good review. This isn't an isolated incident.

    We don't give away items in exchange for biased reviews. Once our products are reviewed, they get returned to us to sell-off for charity or they are paid for in full.

    The good folk at Happy Smiley People purchased their SoulPad at full price and didn't tell us they would be publishing the following blog post:

  • A Bushcrafty Thumbs Up For The 4000-hybrid-G

    February 12, 2014 00:00

    We're really rather pleased with this straight-talking review of the SoulPad 4000-hybrid-G, by Bushcrafter Craig Johnson.

    original source, published 04/02/2014 at bushcraftuk.com : -



    "I have always liked the look of the “traditional” style bell tents. They fit perfectly with my idea of a family/group shelter that allows you to have plenty of room to work/sleep in but at the same time, with the addition of a stove, gives you a warm and comfortable area to retreat to when the weather is inclement. Over the past couple of months, I have been out and using one of the canvas bell tents from SoulPad. It has certainly been strange of late where the weather is concerned but this has allowed me to use the tent in a range of conditions.
