Robens Caucasus 600 (2014)

£170.00

At just £170 the Robens Caucasus 600 is instantly appealing to anyone on a tight budget. It has a good temperature rating of -2 to -8 deg C, making it ideal for 3-season use. The insulation is down, like all the other bags in our test, but with just a 600 fill power it isn’t quite of the same quality ...

Rab Neutrino 600 (2014)

£420.00

Rated as having a lower comfort limit of -8 deg C, the Rab Neutrino 600 is well-placed to provide warmth. But its performance is enhanced further by using water-resistant down, so even if it does get a little damp from condensation inside the tent the down should maintain its insulating properties better than standard down. The bag is slightly longer ...

Robens Starlight 1 (2013)

£120.00

The Robens Starlight 1 pitches outer-first with one pole having to be clipped to the outside of the fly (the four corner poles are pre-fitted and just require pegging out). So pitching is very quick and easy, although on uneven ground those corner poles do end up at unusual angles. However once up the Starlight is very stable, while the ...

Robens Starlight 2 (2013)

£150.00

Robens Lodge 2 (2013)

£200.00

The Robens Lodge 2 is a big, spacious dome-style tent that benefits from a short transverse ridge pole across the top to provide a little more headroom at the porch and an entrance on each side of the tent. But despite its size, this tent was easy to pitch. It goes up inner-first with two poles and then the transverse ...

Robens Star 2 (2012)

£150.00

The Robens Star 2 is the two-person version of the Star 1, and it pitches equally as easy with just one pole needed to be fitted as the four corner poles are preassembled and just require webbing to be tensioned.

Robens Down Lite 700 (2012)

£160.00

Robens’ wide range of kit includes this very competitively priced down bag with a temperature rating of -9 deg C. Down insulation is more efficient than synthetic, which is why the Robens Down Lite 700  is lighter than similar-priced synthetic bags. The side zip extends to 30cm from the foot, so you can keep your feet warm while venting your ...

The new Mythos Solo is a departure from Robens’ usual tunnel and geodesic designs. It’s a well-thought-out one-person tent and the jointed, multi-sectioned pole assembly clips on externally, making pitching quick and easy with the inner and fly attaching as one onto the pole.

Low-priced option for those on a budget not looking for too much carrying power. Very small with only limited pockets, which will suit those not demanding too much for their money. Decent concave/mesh back system that is both cool and comfortable, and it also felt quite stable. The walking pole holders leave a bit to be desired, but it is ...

£40.00

This rucksack weighs 1500g; adjustable back system with airflow chimney; well-padded back and hipbelt; mesh wand pockets; rain cover in base; hydration system-compatible; external, internal lid pocket; superb price.
