I have used Taunton Leisure on and off for over 25 years as I know I will get quality at a reasonable price. I ordered a Vango Omega 350 2013 model, 3 man tent for general camping, with about £25 discount from the list price. The tent arrived well packaged and in the time stated, , which allowed us to practice putting the tent up and packing it away before our trip. I selected the tent as it gives 2 people plenty of room, with an enclosed porch for storing your stuff or for cooking under cover with the flaps open. At 5kgs it may be a little heavy for hiking, unless it was split up between people in a party. I would suggest using additional bags anyway as the porch groundsheet is likely to become dirtier than the inner parts and it is very difficult to get the whole tent back in the original bag. The DoE approval was also important as my sons may be using this tent with school, scouts or sea cadets DoE expeditions in the future. It also has pockets which is great for storing your specs, headtorch and mobile phone whilst you sleep and then finding them when you wake up. The aluminium pegs are fine in soft ground, but you may need to get something a little stronger if the ground is very hard. It was a shame that a couple of the guys don't have velcro ties, as on the rest the velcro ties are a great idea for tying up the lines, but I will add some myself.
We have been lucky so far and have not tested it in the rain yet. In summary, the tent has the quality I expected. I now look forward to many more camping trips.
Phoned to check a few details and delivery options first . Excellent people could not have been more helpful. Tent is excellent.
Have me never used Taunton Leisure before, but had been looking for a canopy for my vango icarus 600 tent and this website was by far the cheapest. Service was excellent and quick delivery. Would definately buy again!
I bought an Osprey Premier Poco Baby Carrier from Taunton Leisure who I had never bought off before.It is difficult buying a product that you haven't seen in person but
with the reviews I read I was convinced that the Baby Carrier was ideal for my
6 Month old Grandson.I bought it as an early Father's Day present for my son as he
was going on Holiday shortly.As soon as my son put his son in the Baby Carrier it was smiles allround.The top of the range carrier is excellent.Baby was very enthusiastic and comfortable in his new surroundings.The Carrier adjusted for Mother to try in out with no fuss.
Watched the Osprey video first of a baby being carried whiched confirmed my buy.
Very pleased with no fuss shopping.
They helped me find the tent I was looking for and the service was just what I needed so I will be using them again to buy other camping products. They are my first choice.
The Distance Selling Regulations Distance state that you are entitled to a full refund including the initial delivery charge if you return a product, within 7 working days. The product, despite the comment on their website, does not fall within the permitted exceptions which are perishable goods, magazines, unwrapped CDs/DVDs and personalized items. At present they are refusing to refund the cost of the item returned to them within 7 days. Otherwise their service is excellent and I have no problems with the Exos Osprey 58 Rucksack which was delivered within two days and meets expectations.
Received my package a day early and all services were fuss free. Excellent online system. Very easy to order and also the products available, new season and also some good deals on sale items from previous seasons products.
I used to use T.L. shop in Exeter so thought I would check them out on-line now that I am back living in Scottish Highlands. Best deal anywhere for North face Tadpole 2DL and Exped sleeping mats needed for wild camps in the hills. All arrived well packaged in good time and would not hesitate to use Taunton Leisure again for future needs !
I was looking for some 23 litre rigid water containers with a filling hole separate from the tap and found them at the lowest price at Taunton Leisure AND they offered free delivery for them. No brainer! I ordered on an Sunday and they arrived on Wednesday. Great service and a good price - what more could you ask for.
Often visit in-store at their Exeter branch where we had on bought 2 pairs of trousers - the on-line shop was to purchase additional pairs and also rucksacks for our children. Everything was simple and easy, no problems at all finding what we wanted. Items were good value for money and the descriptions were very accurate. The parcel was sent to our work address and arrived in perfect condition within a few days. Totally recommend this company for both in-store and on-line shopping.
Lets face it, most companies concerned with their own survival are good at setting out their wares and taking your money. I ordered the wrong item and I emailed them to change my order. No waiting for 20 minutes on a phone line. I got an email back confirming the change. The product was cheapest on this site, too. Would check this site first when considering future purchases.
Fantastic quick service with Superb delivery tracking information by text and email means no being tied to the house all day awaiting delivery. Would actively choose to shop with Taunton leisure above other companies.
I was looking for camping equipment at reasonable prices. They had what we needed in stock and it was a very good price compared with Amazon and high street shops... P&P was also very reasonable and it arrived so quickly!
Many thanks - I would highly recommend Taunton Leisure and will be shopping there again soon.
Ordered product, no delivery charge. Item was dispatched next day and delivered day after, very quick. Unfortunately, when unwrapped packeage, the item was damaged. I assume by the delivery company. I called Taunton Lesisure and they were great.. apologised and had a new one shipped out that day and collected the broken one. Brilliant service. i would not hesiatate to recommend them.
I ordered a pair of lime green Scarpa Mojito shoes from Taunton, they had them in my size and they were shipped straight away. I found the website easy to navigate, Taunton had the best price around, and the quickest shipping. Overall, very thrilled with the shoes and the service, not a problem whatsoever.
Fantastic price, speedy delivery & brilliant communication. Really impressed, would definately use again & recommend.
product as described and cheapest on the market which is always good!
very quick delivery and free postage - cant complain!!!
arrived with security tag on, bit of a pain to go and have it removed, had i needed to use the product straight away i would have been rather miffed.
All in all a good experience and would recommend.
