How to Choose a Tent for Camping

Choose a tent is no easy task, especially for those just starting out camping and still has a lot of knowledge on the subject and on the equipment. So, in this post, we’ll give a little help, showing what you need to evaluate before making your choice.

Sportingology explains that basically there is no good tent or bad tent, there is a more or less suitable for what you need.

And also be aware that the national market is in need of tents with some specific features, and what would be the ideal tent for you, if it’s something very specific, you can simply does not exist. But anyway … come on!

What you need to evaluate

Size

Always buy a tent with a capacity above what you need, preferably a person above (minimum). For example, if you need a tent for 2 people buy for 3 people. If you want to buy for 4 people 3. It to be comfortable space, if you want to take a lot of “camping stuff” and wants more space even, consider choosing a tent to yet another person.

Weight

For those looking for a tent for trekking or simply to carry on backpack and walk around the world, the weight is an important item to be evaluated. If this is your case look for tents that weigh little (always considering the your size, strength and physical ability) until 3 kg can be acceptable, more than it already is pretty heavy if it is load over long distances.

Stay tuned to not fall into the temptation of very lightweight tents, but that do not have the minimum of protection. Make sure the water column, as are the seams and what type of sobreteto. Talk about it in the sequel.

If your idea is not to take the stand in the back, the weight can be disregarded for choice.

Impermeability

Believe me, not all camping tents are waterproof! If you want a tent to camp outdoors without entering the water, choose a tent with the water column above 1000 mm. This is a piece of information which all stalls must have the technical information of the product, if you do not have radar.

Seams

Whenever possible buy tents with sealed seams. If the tent is waterproof and does not have the seams sealed water goes in, not the fabric, but the holes of the seam. This is very important because you don’t want to wake up with a leak in the foot. The vast majority of the tents come with sealed seams, but if the tent is simpler (cheaper) and does not have this information, be suspicious!

Sobreteto

Besides a good waterproofing something else that needs to be observed, if you want enough protection, is the type of sobreteto. Some tents have full sobreteto that covers the entire tent (and protect more, especially rainfall) other have sobreteto (which normally does not cover the front of the tent) and can be critical in case of stronger rains and wind, because the room is usually not waterproofed.

There are also stalls that do not have sobreteto (or have only a little hat on top) and are models that do not advise to use in nature without any extra protection on the tent, because without the sobreteto waterproofing is compromised. They tend to be inexpensive, small and light, but will likely leave you in hand at the time that most need protection.

Portability

Another factor that may be important to be assessed is whether the tent is freestanding or not. What does that mean? Self-supporting tents are those that stay standing even without the espeques, and which are normally the igloo models. But there are several models that simply doesn’t stand up without the armed espeques, which ends up limiting a little your use.

If you want a tent that can be mounted without the placing of espeques, choose a freestanding tent!

Comfort

If you want a tent to stay camping longer, or more comfortably even, look for one that has full advance and closed, like the Indy, Zeus, Katmandu, Super Squirrel, etc.

Have a complete and spacious advance makes a lot of difference if you’re going camping for a long time or on rainy days because the camp is more comfortable.

Tiny little thinking cap on connected

It’s good to let the tiny little thinking cap on always ligado…se the tent is very cheap and very lightweight radar, this is the model that will likely to let you down when you need it most and are models we will not purchase. By rule, in good tents and techniques, how much lighter, more expensive.
