Each year more and more families decide to take up camping, and now more than ever it’s a hobby that is accessible to anyone, from the hardened backpacker to those not quite willing to give up all their home comforts. Camping is what you make it, but what do people already camping think about it? Earlier this year we hosted a survey for campers to tell us a bit about their favourite pastime.
Which brand did you vote as the best in 2015? We’ve got the results
A couple of months ago as part of the GO Outdoors Awards 2015, we asked GO customers to vote for their favourite outdoor brand of 2015.

There were plenty to choose from.
