    Can I improve tent waterproofing?

    Hi. I'm looking at a lighter tent for 3 to 7 night journeys away - and have seen one that has a hydrostatic head of 2000. My current 1kg heavier tent has a hydrostatic head of 4000...... Can I go mad with some seam sealant and improve the waterproofing or is it more the overall material that...

    If there's a rustle in your tent now.....

    .....don't be alarmed now.. It's just a rustley mat! Are all inflatable mats the same? First time I've used one, a Synmat expedition and the noise it makes when you move is astonishing. I've solved it by putting my microfibre towel betwixt it and the floor but really! Apparently it's not the...

    Light tent, freestanding, stealth colour?

    Due to me doing this trip www.usacycle2018.com I have decided on a tent upgrade. Many of the US sites have gravel or even semi-indoor under shelters and free standing tent is vastly better. Other requirements are green for stealth, light weight and decent quality. This little beauty has...

    Laser Space 2 tent

    Hi Thought I'd show you how useful this tent is for cycle camping and touring. I've used this a few times now and I'm still amazed how it manages to fit two bikes in the porch area without them touching the side of the tent (by leaning them together). Here's a few pics..
