Tents and sleeping equipment

Having a solid shelter to set up camp for the night, is one of the most important pieces of camping equipment you need when venturing out into the wild. The tent is so important and needs to cater to your needs in every aspect of its design. Each tent is different. Depending on where you are camping depends on the type of tent you will need, as well as the size and shape to accommodate you, your friends, or your entire family. 

Here are some of the best options of tents that Preppers Shop offers to suit your requirements:

Camping accessories

When you think of camping you may not realise that the experience can be drastically improved upon with accessories. These may not seem essential but believe us when we say they are. These items below will help elevate your summer camping holiday, helping you to relax and disregard the things that draw out the negatives of camping. 


Blystra Candle – citronella & lemongrass

Time to add a fresh scent to your campsite with this aromatic locally sourced and sustainably made candle, with over 15 hours of burn time. This essential oil candle is infused with citrepel, which acts as an effective insect repellent, which will help keep those damned bugs and mosquitoes away. If you or one of your party attracts all the insects in the summertime, this divine candle is essential to add to your camping bag, preventing you from being munched alive. 


Kelty sandbag stake weight

The British weather can be unpredictable as you will know. Just because the sun is shining one minute, doesn’t mean that it won’t be pouring with rain the next. With rain often comes strong winds – especially near the coast. That is why Preppers Shop is offering the perfect solution to ensuring your shelter is safe and secure during those inevitable times when the weather turns. The Kelty sandbag stake weight will make sure your shelter is as stable as possible when out in the wild. Fill this little gizmo with either 20 pounds of sand, rocks, or even snow depending on your location and surroundings. Then simply attach it to your shelter enabling you to have a secure night sleep wherever you are.
