I would highly recommend these guys - great customer service and a range of excellent kit on their website. After care is also brilliant - I bought a hammock and tarp from BPL and they replaced the tarp when it ripped with no questions asked!
Remember the differences between hobos, tramps, and bums: hobos' are people who travel and look for work, tramps are people who travel and don't look for work, bums are people who neither travel nor look for work
