User Review: Blacks Mountain Tent
Ease of Setup: Straightforward
Weight: Heavyish (canvas) but shared OK.
Price Paid: 20 quid?
Bought the tent in a Black and Edgington sale at Sidcup in 1969. The lads from the mountaineering club at Dartford Grammar picked up other types of tent. We all went off to Norway for a month on the Jostedal Icecap, mapping a surging glacier tongue (Tungsberg I recall). Then my new wife and I took off for Canada. Next summer went out to western Canada and the Rockies, along with our first child. Had a line squall in Salmon Arm. British Columbia. Only tent on the site left standing was the Mountain Tent! Doesn't get much better than that!
