Welcome to this first post to the CEC Blog
The Camping Equipment Company is a small, family run supplier of camping equipment - We specialize in tents that range in size from single, 1kg back packing tents to HUGE 10+ person family camping tents with sales all across North America, Europe and Australia
We also offer an assortment of camping accessories such as sleeping bags, mattresses and duffle bags.
Experimentation is one of the key differences that sets us apart from other suppliers in that we like to improve on successful tent designs and we get a lot of feedback from customers about what they like about our tents and what features they want.
This not only includes functional and practical designs at affordable prices, but also secure packaging, easy to follow assembly instructions and improved product performance.
The image to the left helps demonstrate our efforts to product improvement in the area of water resistance testing - we set up an outdoor sprinkler system to simulate varying degrees of rain intensity.
We then set up a tent under the system and observed the results. Firstly, we can test the water column of the fabric and how well the seam taping holds up against directed, pressurized water. Secondly, in some cases we noticed that water pooled on top of the rain fly and therefore we modified all production models to have a steeper roof pitch to ensure that the rain fly shed more of the water.
Customer Service is an ongoing process and we are working hard to ensure our customer's satisfaction by offering more flexible policies. After all, there is no point in offering a great product if you can't back it up with an equally great after sales support service.
These are just some of the qualities that we feel makes us unique in the world of outdoor leisure goods and in our next segment, we'll show you some of the upgrades we recently implemented in our new 2009 tent range - stay tuned.
