Jack Wolfskin LogoWe are delighted to announce that our shopping site CheapTents, will supply Jack Wolfskin the leading European outdoor brand from April 2012. This will see us initially offering Jack Wolfskin tents, building to stock a complete range of Jack Wolfskin clothing, footwear and rucksacks in time for our winter collection this year.

Jack Wolfskin, is a leading brand in the outdoors market which over the past few years has begun to increase its presence in the U.K. Anyone watching Premier League Football will have no doubt seen prominent Jack Wolfskin advertisements as the company sponsors both Liverpool F.C. and Fulham F.C., which shows their intent to become a major player in the U.K. market. However, they are much more than a well oiled marketing machine! Their products are high quality, well designed and competitively priced.

Time has flown by since the beginning on the new Millennium! Its hard to imagine that the now iconic structures of the London Eye and the Millennium Dome were brand new, and that they were supposed to be only temporary. At that time the internet was becoming more and more mainstream but it certainly wasn’t the everyday business, communication, entertainment and information media that it has become today.

Yet way back in the year 2000, at Adventure Centre Ltd, we started work on CheapTents. At that time there were several well-known discounting websites such as Cheap Flights. From this the idea of the CheapTents brand was born. It made perfect sense since we were selling top quality outdoor gear at discounted prices, but of course, Not Just Tents!

Whilst some of us are enjoy the current weather conditions, ideal for walking in the countryside, however we have heard a few moans and groans about the snowy weather conditions. Even from our delivery partners. Anyway I’m loving the weather and hope you are too but we need to tell you about some possible delays in delivery of orders.

Most of the UK is currently under severe weather warning for “wintery conditions” and as such the Royal Mail and Parcel Force, our delivery partners, have issues warnings that some deliveries may experience delays.

Earlier this month the second anniversary of the CheapTents.com Outdoor Gear Blog passed by uneventfully. Yet on the 7th of August 2009, the first anniversary was celebrated with a summary of our favourite outdoor blog posts. So it seems only fitting that we should do a round up of the best posts of our second year before this month is over.

Best Outdoor Gear Posts

One of our favourite bits of outdoor gear this year is the Vango Helium Superlite tent. Available in two models, the 1 man 100 model and the 2 man 200 tent, both are lightweight, rugged and ideally suited for mountain marathons or solo walking. Our review looks at the Vango tents in detail.
