  • How to Build a Campfire

    March 27, 2017 00:00

    Effective setting out and lighting of a fire is a life skill. For some these instructions will seem obvious, but for others this will be new and valuable information. Here is how it's done (you can print this off for later reference).

    October 31, 2016 00:00

    Their mission is simple; 1. find a £200 car, 2. travel from Salop to Saigon. In aid of the Midlands Air Ambulance, best mates Ed & Bruce hope to raise as much money as possible while enjoying an adventure of a lifetime.

    When they approached SoulPad for sponsorship we didn't have to think twice.

  • Dan Snow Has Got Soul!

    October 24, 2015 00:00

    When legendary Historian, TV Presenter, Writer and father of two; Dan Snow heads out to hit the festival scene, his choice of SoulPad is the SoulPad 4000-hybrid-G.

    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.

    We caught up with Dan after a trip to Bestival, UK. Dan told us:

  • Chris Packham Has Got Soul!

    October 12, 2015 00:00

    You've just got to love Chris' reaction to receiving his brand new SoulPad 4000-hybrid-G. Who'd have thought that before receiving his SoulPad Chris wasn't that into the idea of camping?

  • Doing Festivals On The Cheap!

    April 14, 2015 00:00

    Festivals are one of the best parts of the summer, but they can be seriously costly. If you plan ahead and know what's in store, you'll be able to cut your costs and make sure all your money goes towards having a great time - here's how.

    Music Festival

    Festival tickets are expensive enough on their own - Glastonbury 2014 tickets were $345 (£222) including booking fees and postage. If you're not careful, it's easy to spend the same amount again when you're there.

    How to save money at festivals

    Before you go, work out how much you can afford to spend and make sure it will cover everything you need and want to do at the festival. If you think your finances can't handle it, try the following: -

  • A Bloggers Review...

    June 18, 2014 20:00

    We found this blog post by Happy Smiley People on the web and thought we'd share it with you. No, we didn't give them a free tent in exchange for a good post. At SoulPad we get many requests to review our products. Many Bloggers and Journalist want a free tent in exchange for a few words, posts, retweets, whatever. This example came in last month:

    "If you're up for it I could start tweeting about needing to get a tent and asking people which is best, and then carry on to publicly make my decision and then photograph it all and give glowing review."

    You see the problem here? They'd already made up their mind: a free tent for a good review. This isn't an isolated incident.

    We don't give away items in exchange for biased reviews. Once our products are reviewed, they get returned to us to sell-off for charity or they are paid for in full.

    The good folk at Happy Smiley People purchased their SoulPad at full price and didn't tell us they would be publishing the following blog post:

  • Like Art, Culture, Lakes & Mountains?

    January 20, 2014 19:00

    Find all of these things in one place (and more besides). Sssshhhhhh! Strictly between fellow SoulPadders, ok? This is a real gem and one that we are ever-so-slightly reluctant to share with the masses. A very special place indeed; Fischer's Fritz.

    Particularly good for foodies, very close to Zurich's historical centre and in a truly wonderful setting on the German island of Sylt.

    Booking highly recommended. More pics in their gallery here.

  • Craig Charles Has Got Soul!

    July 04, 2013 00:00

    One of our bestest camping buddies, Craig Charles continues to choose SoulPad as his tentage of choice for the festival circuit. Arriving at The Glastonbury Festival in the early and soggy hours of Friday morning, Craig knew he had the trusted sanctuary of his SoulPad 5000-ease™ to retreat to.

    Craig_charles_img_0535

    "SoulPad are the best festival tent people on the 'planet' :)"

    High praise indeed! Craig was once an Intergalactic Space Traveller and so really knows his planets.

    Those of you who missed Craig's performance at the Hell stage missed a treat. Where were you?! Fear not! You can find him on BBC 6Music too:

    Saturdays 1800-2100 on BBC 6Music bringing you the best there is in Soul and Funk mixed in with a little Acid Jazz and a healthy dose of Northern Soul. Glasto 2013 095Glasto 2013 091

  • Greenpeace's Glasto Snowstorm

    June 16, 2013 00:00

    Greenpeace's Tabitha Pope (Design Coordinator, Greenpeace Field at Glastonbury Festival) tells us "this year The Greenpeace Field at Glastonbury Festival is brought to you by the frozen North.
    Field-header
        •    Enter the Arctic Dome for a genuine North Pole experience.
        •    Gather at the explorers’ hut for first-hand expedition stories.
        •    Don mittens for the greatest unseasonal spectacle Glastonbury has ever seen – a giant snowstorm.
        •    Our Farmers’ Market will have the feel of Svalbard village deep within the Arctic Circle.
        •    Fill up with tasty, healthy food and great coffee in the dock side Cafe before setting off on an Arctic adventure."

    Full details here.
     
    Greenpeace are building a movement of millions, standing together in face of climate change, to stop the destruction of one of the last untouched places on earth. Join them at Glastonbury or at www.savethearctic.org

    If you look closely you'll find a Pod of Pads too. A number of the Greenpeace team have opted for the SoulPad 3000-hybrid and SoulPad 3000-ultralite to serve as their home-from-home during the festival. They are a friendly bunch, so fellow SoulPadders be sure to say "hi" if you spot them.

  • 6 Months In Scotland 4000-ease™ Review

    May 25, 2013 00:00

    Wayne Hall of 6 Months in Scotland Charity Wild Camp (in Aid of 'Shelter') gives his review of the SoulPad 4000-ease™ he's been using for the past 2.5 months.

    "The Tent. 

    It's time I sang the praises of what's fast become home over the last 10 weeks.

    Isle martinFor 58 of the last 70 nights this 4m SoulPad Ease bell tent has sheltered Jerry & I from hideous weather of every description. It's stored our gear, offered an environment to dry our gear & has really become home from home.
    I'm disappointed when not in here, Jerry is too....the little 2 man tent is way too cramped but light, bothy cottages can be busy places & the van is an absolute last resort despite being quite comfy.

    The beatings that the SoulPad has taken......70mph+ gales on several occasions....sometimes days of driving rain.....even sheet ice & snow at Glen Affric. A single skin cotton tent doesn't have the right to be still looking so good after intense weather abuse & never did a single drop of rain made it through. Even after it's been soaked for days it dries out fast in the breeze.

    The down sides are few & one no fault of the tents at all.

    It's a big space inside & therefore more difficult to heat than a small tent.

    It weighs just over 20kgs.....no good for back packing! Easy in the canoe. Other than that it's tough, strong, spacious & a nice space to be in.

    Thank you SoulPad"
