  • Our Top 5 Less Obvious Winter Camping Tips

    May 2, 2018

    With the right preparation winter camping can be a very special experience.

    1. Weather Updates. 
    A wind-up radio will never let you down. Keep your shelter free of snow and ice and don't allow it to build up. 

    2. Hot Food & Drinks.
    Think soup, stew, porridge, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and hot pear cider.

    Img_68713. Heat.
    Hot water bottles are great for warming up your sleeping bag before use. Don't be tempted to have a campfire too close to your tent, or to heat your tent with noxious b-b-q's.

    4. Be Realistic. 
    Don't book yourself in to a campsite in The Highlands if your kit is really only meant for summer camping, or if you've never been winter camping before.

    5. Entertainment.
    It gets dark early and with fewer folks around to chat with you'll need to consider taking a good book!

    Why bother? Fellow SoulPadder and Facebooker, Sandra Squire explains: -

  • Phillip Island Glamping, Near Melbourne

    January 11, 2016

    Pack your bags, you're going Glamping darling!

    Serena & Alejandro Cabello started Phillip Island Glamping in July 2015. With many years working in the hotel & tourism industry, they realised the growing glamping trend was just what the island needed.

    Photo_(4)

    With glamping offering low impact accommodation, they knew this was the perfect way for others to experience the stunning environment the island has to offer, without spoling it.

    They call the island home with their two young children and offer a ready-pitched service on the island. You book the site, they take care of your accomodation -with plenty of added luxury, of course.

    We asked one of the Company Directors (Serena) to outline their offering: -

    Dan

    At 1.98m tall, Dan wanted a tent he could move around in freely and stand up in to get dressed. He also wanted his tent to remain cool if it was going to be a hot summer as his young children would be going along with him.

  • A Bushcrafty Thumbs Up For The 4000-hybrid-G

    February 12, 2014

    We're really rather pleased with this straight-talking review of the SoulPad 4000-hybrid-G, by Bushcrafter Craig Johnson.

    original source, published 04/02/2014 at bushcraftuk.com : -



    "I have always liked the look of the “traditional” style bell tents. They fit perfectly with my idea of a family/group shelter that allows you to have plenty of room to work/sleep in but at the same time, with the addition of a stove, gives you a warm and comfortable area to retreat to when the weather is inclement. Over the past couple of months, I have been out and using one of the canvas bell tents from SoulPad. It has certainly been strange of late where the weather is concerned but this has allowed me to use the tent in a range of conditions.
