Tents have been around for so long they even get a mention in the Old Testament. But although tent technology has come on leaps and bounds over the millennia, you still need the patience of Job to put the pesky things up. A shame, because nothing beats climbing into a cosy tent after a hard day's hike or an evening spent wading round the festival campsite.
But who can be bothered with all that confusing canvas and pole-pitching palaver? We know we can't. That's why we just love the ingenious QuickPitch tent. The clue's in the name because these nifty two-person and three-person tents simply pop open the second you release their retaining straps. All you then do is peg it down. Brilliant, eh?
With the two-person tent weighing only 2kg, with a pack size of 78cm in diameter, QuickPitch is supremely portable. Featuring solid fibreglass core poles, taped seams, double stitched flysheets (in 1500mm waterproof* polyester and nylon), plus a waterproof groundsheet, the QuickPitch will keep you and maybe a companion or two as snug as bugs in rugs.

Unlike some self-pitching tents, the QuickPitch is free from spring-loaded sliding catches, so you won't trap your fingers when it boings open. Even a first time camper can erect one in a couple of minutes - ideal if the rain starts pouring unexpectedly.
In fact, talking of proper carry ons and camping, isn't it time you stopped messin' about and ordered a QuickPitch Tent!
