Dropped £15, sold direct by Tesco - around £30+ elsewhere

Ideal for backpacking, camping, hiking and festivals, this expedition backpack tent from Yellowstone can be converted from a tent and then can pack again into a backpack. Its zippable lower section stores a one man, easy to assemble tent which folds neatly back into its compartment after use. The upper section of the backpack is very spacious and can be filled with all your camping essentials.



Made of 190T polyester with a PU coating, the Yellowstone expedition backpack tent is fire retardant and has a waterproof level of 1000 HH. It comes with pre-attached guy lines, a sewn in 120gm² polyethylene groundsheet and a 7mm fibreglass pole.

​my first thought not really 'expedition' is it
Cold (and very wet).

How they can call this an "expedition" tent is beyond me. Go any further than the back garden with 1000 HH rated fabric and your screwed if it's just a bit moist. It would be better (and cheaper), to sleep under a load of Tesco 5p carrier bags.

Some of the Gelert range is decent quality... it's like Karrimor, you have to find the ones that they themselves make rather than the ones they've sold to Sports Direct

Both brands are owned by sports direct, other than Gelert tents (they said they were keeping the factory open) it is all generic stuff with a badge stuck on. Don't kid yourself that there is a Karrimor factory, still producing decent stuff.

A black bin bag would be just as useful.
Hilarious!

Great, so you get a leaky tent and a bizarre-looking backpack with a gaping hole on top rolled into one.

"Karrimor Special Forces" still exists: completely separate from the Sports Direct version.

I stand corrected, but it is a bit like comparing Budweiser Budvar and Yank Budweiser.

For a while Karrimor still sold an amount of stuff in higher end stores (camping etc). I agree that there's less available now, but boots like the Karrimor Orkney 3 (not 5!!) are still quality items - you won't find them in SportsDirect!

From an article in the times a couple of years ago (reading between the lines), the tactic appears to be to keep a few high end items in manufacture and sell through other retailers so as not to completely trash the name. Mike Ashley - smoke and mirrors. Surely not...
