Sun Shelter Tarp in ALDI
dont know if this is country wide, but my local Aldi, Rugby. Has Sun shelter Tarps in at £19.99. It looks to be pretty big so great for camping. also appears to be water repelent.

I got one from Decathlon for the same money, I have used it as extra rain cover over my old (less than faithful) tent,

I think I might need it this weekend at Ripley

ALDI - Thursday Special Buys 10th July 2008

Cheers for the info. It's 2000HH so the waterproofing is good enough for the purpose.

I'd been looking into buying one of these as I use a small 2-man tent which is just about big enough for me plus gear. Can't be robbed at that price. I'll be having a look myself tomorrow morning.

Went to have a look yesterday. I didn't buy one as the pack size is a bit big possibly due to the poles being non-telescopic and the packaging said it weighed 5.7kg. You may as well just buy a bigger tent.

The decathlon one is much lighter and compact so I'd go for that out of the two. It's also half the price of a similar one by Robens.

Hi guys,

You can get British Army ones on t'internet for around £25. Very robust and definately waterproof. Can also be used as a stretcher(!) No poles though. I use telescopic walking poles if I'm somewhere with no trees.

Matt :)

Hi Guys

ive got both.

Got the aldi one about 3 months ago for £9.99 !! bargain. poles are very heavy but tarp is good for packing down small.

decatholan again poles are heavy but Ive now binned all my poles and bought walking poles from my local tesco's. ive cut the handle off and they fit great in the panniers

Cheers Will great tip I couldnt believe how heavy the bag was but the tarp itself is pretty light. The cheap walking pole route is a good way to go.

Very Cheap Solution
Hi folks, just bought a 4m x 3m ground sheet for £4.00 from local camp shop.
2 second hand collapsable teepee alu poles that fold to 50cms and open to max 200cms[ about 6' 8"]. Cost £5.00 in donation to mountain rescue North Wales. A couple of rubber washers cut out as stoppers and several metres of old guy ropes. Works a treat and covers tent and bike if neccessary Total cost under a tenner.
