The Coleman Vail 6L is a smart-looking, large family tent that's ideal for family holidays where you want a tent with plenty of space.
More details +
£569.99
The Coleman Vail 6L is a smart-looking, large family tent that's ideal for family holidays where you want a tent with plenty of space. If you have more than two kids, a tent of this size will be ideal. But even with two older kids who don't want to share, or you want lots of space, this is a fantastic size. It comes in at a lower price than some other tents of this size. It has fewer features than the Coleman Castle Pines 6L but still has many great aspects, such as a 4000mm hydrostatic head, built-in porch, and a no-trip entrance.

If you are on a tighter budget, only have one or two kids, and want to get away camping at the weekends, the Coleman Aspen 4 is well worth considering. While it might not have quite as many features as some other tents in the Coleman range, it does come with features not normally found in this price bracket, such as a 4000 mm hydrostatic head, no trip entrance, and a wind test rating of seven on the Beaufort Scale.

PROS:

  • 4000 mm hydrostatic head. Most tents in this price bracket only have 3000mm.
  • Small shelter on the front of the tent makes it easier to get in and out of the tent if the weather isn't as good.
  • Darkened bedrooms for a better night's sleep.
CONS:
  • Ideal for weekend camping. If you want to stay longer, such as several nights for a family holiday, we recommend looking at the slightly larger Coleman Aspen 4L.
  • If you want features like mesh to keep the bugs out, look at the Coleman Meadowood 4.

This lightweight waterproof jacket will help keep you dry if you are out with the kids hiking, cycling, or trail running. Handy also for the school run!

This jacket has become my new go-to jacket for running...the fact that it is compact means I can easily fit it in my backpack when I'm up on the hills and feel prepared for a change of weather!! I love the berry colour not too bright but enough of a colour to feel stylish and on-trend! In summary, a great technical jacket with lots of features to make getting outside more enjoyable and safe.

  • I found the pockets to be a good size I was able to fit my gloves in them when I started to work up a sweat!
CONS:
  • My only gripe is the zip to the pockets. The toggle on them is short and slippy and with cold hands, I found it difficult to unzip the front pockets.  This was not so much of an issue with the back pocket as it has a longer toggle with more of a grip.
