Just in: Wild Country Hoolie 2 etc tent RRP £180
Yesterday a parcel arrived at work addressed to me, and when I looked closer it was from Terra Nova. My new Wild Country Hoolie 2 etc had arrived! The Etc in the tents name shows that it has an extended porch, which is great for storing lots of kit or even bicycles. I bought this tent for a trip, me and Rich have planned, to the alps, where we will have lots of climbing and mountaineering gear with us, so this tent seemed perfect.
Mountain Equipment calls this fleece “An unrestrictive technical hooded microfleece that is ideal for climbing and mountaineering in cool conditions.” But does it does it live up to this description?

Secondly it has Polartec PowerStretch in the hood, sides, under the arms and around the cuff. Other features include three pockets, one inside and two on the outside, thumb loops, and that’s about it!
