To make your choice even easier we’ve also developed the Category 5 quality mark with other like-minded businesses in New Zealand, Australia and China.
Named after the hurricane rating system, products that carry the Category 5 mark have been overseen by a member of the Category 5 certification team throughout the production process, and are guaranteed to perform in almost any wind, rain, heat, cold, and are certified hard-wearing.
The Category 5 quality assurance process includes:
Between us, the Category 5 team’s got more than 100 years experience manufacturing premium outdoor products, and we reckon we’ve probably assembled more than 5,000 tents in our time. We know a bit more about camping than Uncle Kev!
Only the best products in a category can get the Category 5 stamp. What this means for you is that if you buy a Category 5 product you know that it’s the best in its class. Anyone can make a tent that looks smart, but good looks don’t necessarily mean good performance (like flashy Aunty Sharon who doesn’t look quite so flash after a few wine coolers). If it’s got the Category 5 mark though, you know what you’ve bought will perform.
