Brand Review – Wild Country

When it comes to reliability, Wild Country tents have always been a popular choice for campers. Established by leading outdoor brand Terra Nova, the Wild Country range was launched to offer the perfect balance of affordability and quality, using the brand’s 20+ years of experience in the field to create innovative, long-lasting tents. In this blog we’re taking a close look at the Wild Country brand and why so many people choose their products to escape and enjoy the great outdoors.

Our favourite Wild Country products

  1. Wild Country Blizzard 2

Extremely quick and easy to pitch, the Blizzard 3 is one of the most popular Wild Country designs. Ideal for couples or solo campers, the tunnel design gives a good balance between weight and space and when coupled with Stormtex N4000Si nylon flysheet fabric results in a great lightweight tent with plenty of space.

What do the experts say?


“The Blizzard 2 is by far the most affordable tent in this test, and for all-round year use in the UK it would be a great choice”

“Full marks to Wild Country, for producing such a neat and capable little tent!”

2. Wild Country Helm

A lightweight tent with an incredibly strong design, the Helm is packed full of extra features to make your camping trip a breeze. This completely free standing tent is quick and easy to set up and the fly is made from Stormtex P4000, a fabric developed to provide the best all round performance. The Helm is constructed from Polyester with a durable water repellent coating and taped seams to offer 100% waterproofing in all conditions.

What do the experts say?

The Helm was voted Trail magazine’s best value tent in July 2017.

“An outstanding one person tent with plenty of space and stability combined with a good price and weight for what is on offer”

3. Wild Country Zephyros 2 

Another great value for money tent from Wild Country and a popular choice for solo travellers. If you’re worried about carrying a lot of weight on your travels, the Zephyros is a great option and the winner of the OE Best Buy. Combining low weight, a reliable weather-proof performance and spacious sleeping and storage areas, it’s a fantastic all-rounder that’s ideal for those looking to save money.

What do the experts say?

“Based on the well-proven Terra Nova Laser design, it has a central hoop and short upright pitches at each end. It pitches as a unit and can be erected quickly, though it can take a little time to get the fly sheet taut”
