We SoulPadders here at SoulPad HQ don't like to blow our own trumpets (much!) but as you kind folks are prepared to take the time to write in with praise, then we should at least acknowledge it.
So here's a few samples. More reviews are available online here. Thanks to all who have taken the time to write so far.
Please don't be offended if your message isn't included, we didn't want to make this section too long (s'true!)
I just wanted to share with you the success of our Camp at the Castle project that you so kindly helped with last year. To remind you the project was between us at the National Trust Chirk Castle, a local NHS health improvement team and a local branch of the charity Homestart. We purchased your tents at a kindly discounted rate with funding from the Big Lottery. Homestart is a nationwide charity who support families who are experiencing hardship in a variety of ways. The project was born when they expressed a wish that some of their most vulnerable families could experience the joy of a family holiday, something they had never been able to give their children and something beyond the parent/parents capabilities independently. Last July we welcomed 4 families to camp for the weekend at Chirk Castle, supported by volunteers from Homestart, the National Trust and the Caia Park Health Team. They camped in your SoulPad tents and for the weekend these became home for the 19 children, 6 parents and numerous volunteers. I have attached the feedback that I gathered from the families as nothing else can adequately explain how much it meant to them. Such was the massive success of last year that we are running 2 camps this year, so that we can welcome even more vulnerable families to experience the joy of camping. So your SoulPad’s are being put to very good use!
I'm a recent convert to the bell tent, like this one from SoulPad. It's quick and easy to put up, with plenty of room inside, and, as it's made from canvas, it stays warm on those chilly British nights. My nephews call it the 'circus tent' and run around it pretending to be elephants.
Once up it [SoulPad 5000-lite] provides an amazing space that could easily sleep ten people. It's an eye-catching party tent that would work well for nostalgic base camps and the odd music festival. It uses a single pole and the side panels can be lifted during the day for maximum ventillation.
Arrived at Glastonbury with my wife and party 20 mins before show it was absolutely chucking it down with rain and pitch black. And there she was, our very own 'SoulPad' pitched up and ready for our weekend. What a delight!!! Highly recommend these guys for any festival experience!
We constructed our magical tent in no time!! Thank you so-we LOVE it!!
I've been chilling out in my SoulPad for a few years now and can hand on heart say it's the best festival tent around. Loads of space and looks cool and we've even used it backstage at festivals as a rehearsal space. Brilliant for kids too. Dave and I both have one and we love them.
It's just so gorgeous. I put it up by myself...it's BEAUTIFUL. Can't wait to try it out on a campsite. x [SoulPad 5000-hybrid-G]
The SoulPad [4000-hybrid-G] was lovely and shady in the heat, other people were sweating in their smaller nylon tents! It's been up in the garden all summer. Kids love it. We might even risk a winter camping trip as the evenings close in....
Yeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssss!!!!!! SO eXcItInG!!!! [My wife] has just spent years trying to coax me into a tent. I camp for work which at high altitude or in sodden rain forest isn’t, if I’m honest, always that much fun. So outside of that for a fairly camp bloke I rarely camp. I fear your tent might change that! Or lead to a ‘divorce’. It looks pretty retro which I like, I’m not a red nylon crawl into type of guy.
To date we’ve spent around 200 nights in our SoulPad. It’s been snowed, hailed and torrentially rained upon, battered by gales and -for a couple of days at least- baked by the sun. We’ve put it up and down so many times we’ve lost count. It’s been dragged around the country in the back of our pickup and subjected to various methods of rigorous testing by two pre-schoolers. And it’s still absolutely brilliant: we’ve had no leaks, no malfunctions and no failures.
