I think Soulpad is a bit cheaper isn't it? it used to be anyway. I have heard much better things about Soulpad's customer service than Bell Tent's. The kicker for me would be that Bell Tent are the ones with the restrictive agreement with Obelink in the Netherlands which means that Obelink won't ship their much cheaper tents to the UK any more.

I have bought from neither, however, having managed to get lucky with Obelink on a couple of occasions, so none of this is from personal experience.

In wouldn't buy from bell tent because of their wanky agreement with obelink. They will
Sell all over the world except the uk as they supply bell tent uk who charge £100 extra

I bought mine from karma canvas, it has a mosquito door which was v useful when DC were crawling, don't think either of the others do, they may have changed but they didn't then

I have a soul pad and agree the customer service was excellent. My friends have from bell tent, the only difference we could identify when recently put up nextto each other is the soul pad has canvas loops whilst the bell tent has elastic loops. Not sure if either is preferable.

There is another difference,it's the zip. We don't put ours away done up, we have a separate bag or the groundsheet, when it comes to reattaching, the soul pad is slightly trickier as I think there are 3 or 4 zips, I'm not sure re but ours fom obelink is just 2 zips and much easier.

Saying that's its not a huge problem I suppose
