In over 20 years of T in The Park I don't recall one fully dry weekend and after a quick look on BBC Weather it doesn't look like this weekend will be breaking the mold. So make sure you bring a waterproof so you can enjoy yourself no matter what the weather brings. While a lot of modern jackets are water repellent for solid protection from the rain we suggest the following brands whose jackets are specifically designed for the outdoors and elements: Poler Outdoor Stuff, Patagonia, K-Way and Didriksons. All these brands are available in store and online at Fat Buddha Store.

Anyone who's walked the arduous walk from the car park to the camping site while carrying a crate, a tent and all their other supplies will realse the benefit of a sturdy bag. We stock a vast and varied variety with sturdier options such as Eastpak or Obey to the stylish numbers from Sandqvist and Herschel Supply Co which are more suited to day trippers. Shop our full range of backpacks and bags in store and online here.

Really show of your style credentials at the TITP with the Carhartt Camping Chair. Covered in a class camo print the chair easily folds away into a small bag for portability and is easily assembled making them perfect for after you've had a few drinks.

Also from Carhartt is this foldable BBQ. Folding away into a small carry bag and again easily assenbled this BBQ allows you to eat delicious warm food which is sorely needed during a weekend of camping.

The Poler 10" cast iron dutch oven comes pre-seasoned and ready to use straight out of the box. Built to last, and to make apple crisp. The perfect travel companion this summer. Please note that this owen is slightly heavier so you might want to take this if you are driving up.

Make sure you protect your price kicks from the mud with a shoe protector. We offer several different options from classic Crep Protect to the 'Imbox Footwear Protection Shoe Care' which is a stand alone machine which will waterproof your shoes for up to three months. They say prevention is better than cure but if forget to use a protector on your shoes fear not you can always use shoe cleaner from industry leader Jason Markk.

No camping or festival trip should be undertaken without a quality pair of sunglasses. Everyone looks better with a pair of sunglasses and they can certainly help cover up the fatigue of a long weekend. Shop our full range of sunglasses online here and be careful not to lose them (it always happens).
Other essentials (sadly not available at Fat Buddha Store) are food, suncream, wellies, alcohol, baby wipes (extremely handy after rain) and a tent. Happy camping!
