  • 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.

  • Like Art, Culture, Lakes & Mountains?

    January 21, 2014 00:00

    Find all of these things in one place (and more besides). Sssshhhhhh! Strictly between fellow SoulPadders, ok? This is a real gem and one that we are ever-so-slightly reluctant to share with the masses. A very special place indeed; Fischer's Fritz.

    Particularly good for foodies, very close to Zurich's historical centre and in a truly wonderful setting on the German island of Sylt.

    Booking highly recommended. More pics in their gallery here.

  • Craig Charles Has Got Soul!

    July 05, 2013 01:00

    One of our bestest camping buddies, Craig Charles continues to choose SoulPad as his tentage of choice for the festival circuit. Arriving at The Glastonbury Festival in the early and soggy hours of Friday morning, Craig knew he had the trusted sanctuary of his SoulPad 5000-ease™ to retreat to.

    Craig_charles_img_0535

    "SoulPad are the best festival tent people on the 'planet' :)"

    High praise indeed! Craig was once an Intergalactic Space Traveller and so really knows his planets.

    Those of you who missed Craig's performance at the Hell stage missed a treat. Where were you?! Fear not! You can find him on BBC 6Music too:

    Saturdays 1800-2100 on BBC 6Music bringing you the best there is in Soul and Funk mixed in with a little Acid Jazz and a healthy dose of Northern Soul. Glasto 2013 095Glasto 2013 091
