Jon is Chester's resident tent geek. 20 years' experience braving the elements under canvas has rendered him one of our most knowledgeable camping experts; from tents, to tarps, to bivvi bags, he goes out in all seasons, in all weathers. His wealth of practice mean he has had first-hand experience with almost all the camping equipment brands we stock.
Not all of Jon's camping trips have been a total success. During one foray into the Snowdonian mountains, a 100mph gust tore his friend's tent apart and blew his gear down the side of Mynydd Tal-y-Mignedd. It at least taught him the value of good gear.
Cwm Eigiau, Snowdonia. "The more remote the better! Cwm Eigiau strikes a good balance of being fairly easy to get to, but feeling incredibly remote. You barely see a soul, besides the Carneddau ponies."
