How to choose the best tent
Size and shape are the most important factors when choosing a new tent. Think about how many people will be using it and how much room you need.
Tunnel tents are long and spacious, often with different compartments, making them a perfect home-from-home for big groups and families.
Dome tents tend to have just one room, making them ideal for couples and smaller groups. They curve up in the middle and have a sturdy structure.
The main benefit of a pop-up tent is that they require minimal assembly, literally popping up into shape. They’re best for kids and small groups.

How to choose the best sleeping bag
The main decisions when choosing a sleeping bag are what type, how thick and what size you need.
Types of sleeping bag
Envelope sleeping bags tend to be more spacious than mummys. They have a zip that goes all the way around, letting you use it as a blanket too.
Mummy sleeping bags are slim in design, keeping you cosily encased. They are usually just for one person and good at retaining heat.
