1) The Tent: Nordisk Telemark 2

It's time to let that tent in the attic your Dad used in the 80s go, even if it's made it this far with all the pegs intact. Modern designs are all about lightweight carbon poles, state-of-the-art fabrics and easy erection: no 45 mins fumbling in the dark here.

An industry-leader that's won more awards than Daniel Day Lewis is this beauty, from Nordisk. Light, roomy and full of nifty pockets and design touches, it's the best out there and comes in a range of sizes depending on who you've got with you.
