Camping hacks from Dwights Outdoors

From Summer Times, 9:34 am on 4 January 2021

Forty years ago, David Dwight's dad set up a company in Upper Hutt north of Wellington called Dwight's Canvas.

They sold big canvas tents and Kiwis loved them.

Now they're called Dwights Outdoors and they sell everything for camping, tramping and hunting. David Dwight took a different approach to his competitors, designing tents, overseeing manufacture in China and testing them himself on the windiest nights the local campground, Kaitoke, could offer.

David chats to Jesse about some of those crazy nights and passes on some of his wisdom to help make camping a fun experience this summer.
