I'm off to Millets and might be some time

Advantagesgood products, reasonable prices

You see, Millets stocks Peter Storm cagoules and fleeces-my favourites, and you can't get them just anywhere.

AdvantagesBudget kit always in stock

DisadvantagesNo high end gear - special orders cost £5 postage....

"...expensive brands!) Staff knowledge is where Millets stores often fall down - quite often you find very few enthusiasts working as staff - something noted on various www.outdoorsmagic.com discussion forums and this can lead to customers being given quite wrong advice.... having said that cotswolds are said to suffer from the same problem All in all, if you want a tent for camping in european campsites, are going to do some walking along lowland ..."

Millets, not just for tents

Advantageseverything for camping under one roof

Disadvantagesnone

"Millets is a good shop for any outdoor clothes you want and for any walking or camping out equiptment. Prices for tents vary from the very cheap to the top price market. The staff are very good and will help you with advice on everything. Millets sell everything that the camper will need from spoons to mosquito nets. If the store you go to havent got it in stock then they will willingly get it for you. The clothes department have gone modern ..." Read review
