A tent is essentially a cover to keep you warm and dry, and your belongings safe, but there’s more to choosing a good tent than you might imagine. How big does it need to be? What about the ground sheet? Is it well ventilated? Can you stand up inside? Then there’s the question of materials and cost, inner and outer layers — if you’re serious about buying a tent to last, that will give you the most value for money on your camping trips, there’s a lot to consider.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re on a designated camp site, or scaling a mountain, a decent tent is a must-have, and we’ve picked out a few of our favourites to share with you. We’ve got it covered.

Biolights, solar and rechargeable lights are a logical move for people who love the great outdoors, and who want to keep it that way.
