Camping in a Flash: Pop Up Tents
With the festival season well under way and school terms about to finish, the warmer weather makes us start to think about camping and outdoor living. Thankfully, gone are those pesky and fiddly tents that took hours to set up with pages of instructions and different sizes of tent pegs. Now there is a new kind of tent – the pop up kind – which can easily be assembled in seconds without difficulty. Take a look at our favourite pop up tents and this video and be amazed!
Tesco’s Jelly Bean Print is a two man tent which pops up for easy assembly, giving you more time to enjoy your camping trip or festival experience! The multi-colour jelly bean print makes it easy to find in a crowd, and you can sleep in comfort thanks to the coated waterproof fly-sheet, sewn in groundsheet and air vent. It costs £39.99 and don’t forget you also get 78 club card points. Available from www.tesco.com.
The Quechua Tent 2 seconds XXL IIII may cost a little more at £131.99 but it is a 4 man tent with mini living area. Double skinned and highly waterproof to make it very comfortable whatever the weather. There is a bedroom section which fits 2 people and all their luggage with plenty of space to spare.
