NEMO Galaxi 2P Tent

NEMO Galaxi 2P Tent

My MSR Hubba Hubba 🎪 has finally given up on me! It has endured at least a few hundred camping sites, if not more. As with most tents, the zips are generally the first things to fail. This is the case with my precious Hubba Hubba. The zips curve round in one loop and would be fairly hard to repair. The welded seems are looking a bit ragged too. So a new tent it is then 😄 As with any purchase today, one can spend an infinity on research due to the web! It has its plus‘s, but you’ll soon enter a rabbit warren of…

Sea To Summit Talus II Sleeping Bag

Sea To Summit Talus II Sleeping Bag

Ever since one particular cold night on the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Morocco 🇲🇦 2016, I knew I needed to up-the-anti regarding my sleeping bag.

It’s had plenty of use. It’s supposedly rated to -7 degreee comfort … bah humbug! I freeze my nuts off by…

Again, after extensive research, mainly through cycle touring blogs, the consensus was the MSR (Mountain Safety Research) Hubba. It has been a preferred choice of cycle adventurists in Africa and other tropical climates. The…

Vango Nitro 200+ Tent

Vango Nitro 200+ Tent

After some intense research for a new tent, I settle with a Scottish company. The Vango Nitro 200 plus. This is classed as a two person tent. It has a large vestibule area. This I like, as on wet days one can still cook with ease and spread out in the sleeping area. The Nitro uses a gothic-arch-pole-structure, making it an incredibly strong and stable tunnel tent. Ideal for the British weather! I’ve also added a footprint (ground sheet). So…
