    Default Out & About, who are they?

    Good afternoon Gents, I just purchased a 2.5x2.5m Canvas dome tent from Out & About without really doing any research on it, the price was just to good to be true for a canvas tent, nothing wrong with it, but I can't find any details on the company. anyone out there know anything about them?

    close to 250 views and no one knows of Out & About tents, I spoke to the previous owner and he said he purchased it long ago and chances are they aren't in business anymore, but I can see that it is a well made tent, I purchased some NuSeal to waterproof the canvas again, now I only need to replace the S-Hooks with SS type, the old type rusted but still works and she should be perfect again. Honestly I paid R500 for it so I can't complain

    Label clearly states its a "Out & About" Bow Hennie Tent, I also inserted a picture of the S-hooks that I need to replace, can they be purchased at any Builders Warehouse, or is it a specific item?

    I dont think they are in business anymore.

    For the hooks - go to any camping store
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?

    Were they not a ''rebranded'' range for one of the larger chain stores?

    I don't think so either, but I wonder if they where purchased by Campmor, as they too have a Saffari "Hennie" tent the exact same size and looks of mine, obviously some changes have been made over the years, but I wonder if "Out & About" became Campmor?

    You bought a bargain there. still looks in good condition.

    Was on campmor outdoor website and see on their digital catalog they have the s hooks you are looking for. Don't know where you can get close to you, hope it helps

    Cheers

    Thank you for all the replies, So it seems Out & About is still out there, I just think there products aren't what they use to be, last night I had a good inspection, and cant find anything wrong except the S-hooks that still works perfectly, they just rusted, so as not to stain the tent I will replace these and get a few pegs, but all and all Tent cost was R500 + NuSeal/S-hooks +/- R500 I will be R1000 in, which I don't think is bad at all for a canvas tent this size
