How to choose the right tent material?
The choice of your tent model will initially depend on your use. As you have understood, there are camping tents, hiking tents, expedition tents ... It is up to you to choose a tent that corresponds to your practice. Or if you prefer to sleep outside during your expeditions, choose a Ticket to the Moon hammock that offers great comfort.
Secondly and as mentioned above, the tents can be used according to the season. Today it is possible to find 4-season tents, i.e. tents that can be used all year round, 3-season tents or 2-season tents. This criterion will therefore depend on the frequency of its use.
Following these first two choices, you will have to orient your purchase according to the shape of the tent. As explained above, there are different types of tents: dome tents, tunnel tents or tepee tents. This criterion is in line with your practice and your desires.
It is also important to analyse the capacity of the tent and its comfort. Indeed, the number of people to be sheltered is essential in the choice of a tent fabric. The living space must therefore be adapted according to the people but also according to your desires: the number of doors, the number of apses ...
Weight and space requirements are obviously elements to be taken into account because if the tent is carried on the back when hiking or bivouacking, it is essential to favour the weight. The more compact the tent fabric is, the less space it will take up.
To finish setting up, opt for a tent canvas that is easy to set up if you are not patient and not manual. The outer hoops are quick to set up but difficult to separate for drying for example; the inner hoops provide a ventilated shelter but the fabric in the chamber can get wet. Here Sierra Design easy-to-set up tents will be ideal.
Whatever the conditions, camping is fun and pleasant if you have quality equipment so go for it!
