So, we've had black bin bag on floor outside, but wonder if there's a better way? It sort of spreads everywhere, looks messy and you have to keep knotting and unkotting it to keep beasties out. Don't want anything that takes up valuable space in the car though. What do you find works? Maybe a small pop up laundry bin with a bin bag in?

Found head torches a bit useless - anyone found a good useful torch that works properly as a torch but maybe doubles up as a light and is cheap?

What's the best clothes storage? (we won't have space for wardrobes!) We want something that packs down v small for travelling but then is easy to rummage around / live out of in the tent. we used this system last year skubb it was ok, the hard edges fold down to make it more squishy for travelling, but was a bit weird for hotel overnight stops. Anyone got a better system?

Oh, and anyone tried a collapsible coffee cone - useful or useless? Used a plastic cone so far and it's ok, but awkward shape for packing.

something like this? folds right down You can pop a tent peg on the base to stop it toppling over.

In our caravan I use a laundry basket for clothes like this but if you wanted something more compact - folding crates?

outwell do the pack and go range which are bags which double up as wardrobe hangy things .....

I've not seen it in the flesh - but it's almost Mary Poppins ish the way the down tubes vanish?

ooh interesting bits to look at - thank you. the bin design looks perfect.

hettie have you used that coffee cone? it looks great, but just wondered if it's stable enough?

Nope sorry...but can't see why it wouldn't work...I use an expresso pot

This is a great camping bin. Folds completely flat for travelling.
