Mountaineering Shop and Outdoor Equipment Store
Welcome to Summits
This questionable summer has meant campers are up-dating and up-specking their camping equipment. People have been buying better quality tents to combat the increasingly wet summers. That’s one of the reasons we stock an extensive range of Vango tents. Vango have been increasing the quality and waterproofness of their tents almost year on year. Many of their tents have a hydro-static head of 3000 mm which is way above the industry norm. From the Vango Maritsa and Astoria to the ever popular Tigris, Icarus and Odyssey tents, we have them all in stock along with the popular easy pitching Zeal, Beta and Alpha models at fantastic prices. We also stock a range of models from Vango’s budget range – Lichfield. This brand allows campers to buy quality tents at reasonable prices.
Our mountain and expedition tents have shown real growth this summer as outdoor enthusiasts ensure their tents are going to be up to the job. Tents from Force Ten, Vango, Vaude and The North Face have all been popular as people invest in tents which will handle anything the weather will throw at them. Lightweight tents are getting lighter year by year, with the Force Ten Helium Carbon and the Vaude Power Lizard all weighing less than a kg.
Our range of Duke of Edinburgh tents, sleeping bags and rucksacks is bigger than ever along with our range camping and walking equipment. Again Vango is the market leader in this area with tents such as the Hurricane, Tempest, Omega, Spectre, Banshee, Halo and Mirage. These tents represent excellent value for money and it’s no wonder Vango is the official supplier for the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. Vango’s range of sleeping bags and rucksacks are superb with the Contour and Sherpa rucksacks being by far the best selling rucksacks in the UK suitable for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The Trangia cooking systems is still one of the most versatile systems for groups and individuals and is a firm favourite with Duke of Edinburgh with either the spirit burner or increasingly popular gas burners making the stoves super efficient.
