Mountain Tents - our top recommendations
Mountain Tents - our top recommendations more infomation


Our top picks:

Weekenders / motorists: The ultra quick erect Khyam save time pitching and are rugged and spacy enough for regular users but too heavy to backpack with.

Mountaineering: CAMP XP series - full on geodesic mountaineering tent at about half the cost of the nearest equivalent from the competition.

Trekking/biking: CAMP minima - incredibly lightweight and packs down tiny. Flysheet and inner easily splits to carry evenly between two people.

1 person ultralight: Camp Bivak or Hiky for regular users or the great value Khyam lightweight bivi for occasional / emergency use (see our sleeping bag section for the Khyam.)

Temporary shelter: Outdoor Designs standard shelter in the size to meet your needs makes an ideal lunch or navigation refuge out of the worst of the weather and creates a warmer microclimate to lift your spirit.

British Standards for Tents
In 2012 BSI published a new standard BS EN ISO 5912 to which tents can be tested and which are a very useful guide for buyers to determine the suitability of a tent for a specific purpose.

Level 1: Fair weather use - suitable for short duration (1-2 day) summer use.

Level 2: Moderate weather use - suitable for all wet and windy conditions but not intended for extreme or mountain conditions.

Level 3: All weather use - suitable for mountaineering, expeditions and extended residential use.

Tents we sell will meet the requirements of level 2 and in many cases level 3 however due to manufacturing dates and practices they may not be specifically marked as such. We are happy to provide advice prior to purchase if you have any queries.

Khyam fully fitted stone protection ground sheets
Khyam fully fitted stone protection ground sheets


to fit

Fully fitted stone protection groundsheet perfectly matched to the footprint of your Khyam tent including the porch areas which have no sewn in ground protection.

Key reasons to use a groundsheet:
1. minimise wear and tear and prolong the life of your tent
2. reduce condensation and improve warmth by providing extra insulating layer.
3. Improve water resistance
4. Helps prevent a muddy sewn-in groundsheet and walkthough from porch / awning areas which might soil the rest of the tent.
5. Improves comfort and peace of mind - after all its much easier and cheaper to replace the groundsheet than your tent.
