Managed through carelessness to lose years of posts so it will soon be time to start over. Plus, happily, I've been diverted by a travelling life.

No prizes for guessing what will be top of the 2019 New Year Resolutions!

Berghaus tents and sleeping bags

Berghaus has a range of tents and sleeping bags available in partnership with the Blacks Leisure Group.  The tents vary in capacity from two person to six person.  All of the products use high quality materials and offer excellent protection from the elements combined with great functionality and practical storage and carrying options.
With a suggested retail price of £129.99, the two person Snowdonia 2.1 tunnel tent is expected to be popular and is ideally suited for multi-day backpacking trips.  At the other end of the scale, the Torridon 6.2 has a pod dome design, two inner tents and a fully sealed groundsheet.  Designed for up to six people, at £399.99, the Torridon is a fully featured family tent.  Other tents in the range include: the Peak 2.1, a two person dome tent at £119.99; the Lomond 3.1, a three person tunnel tent at £249.99 and the Cuillin 4.2, a four person family tent at £349.99. 

The sleeping bag range is made up of a three season down bag, a four season synthetic bag and a one to two season synthetic bag.  All of the bags are made with a nylon outer fabric and come with a compression stuff sac.
Designed for three season use in a range of outdoor activities, the Berghaus Flame 600 retails at £139.99 and uses 600 fill power 90/10 goose down in a box baffle construction.  The bag weighs 1298g. 
At £99.99, the Berghaus Flare 1600 is a synthetic fill alternative to the Flame.  The Flare uses Berghaus’ AT Fibre Fill and its HEAT (Honeycomb Engineered Advanced Thermals) technology to maximise its thermal efficiency, and weighs 1654g.  Both the Flame 600 and Flare 1600 incorporate an ergonomic shaped footbox to maximise heat retention around the feet.
The one to two season Flare 850 is a rectangular synthetic fill bag, using Berghaus’ own AT Fibre Fill insulation and is designed for camping on warmer nights and for travel.  The Flare 850’s rectangular shape gives greater freedom of movement and it retails at £59.99.
