How to set up the tent:
Before setting up the tent, we should first understand the structure and classification of the tent. We should master corresponding construction methods according to the tent in our hands and "go, go, go" to the destination.The structure of the tent is divided into internal and external tents, tent poles, nails and wind ropes.The main body of the tent has borders, walls, pillars, roofs, doors, rain shelters, flying MATS, floor MATS, foot ropes, waist ropes, nails, etc.The tent is divided into construction type, human type type, tourism type, etc., the construction method of tourist type tent is mainly discussed here.
Weight: so called "you can't have both", comfortable and durable tent, the weight is not light;Lightweight tents are not hard to find, but you need to consider whether the tent is big enough and strong enough.On the premise of meeting the requirement, the lighter the better.In general, a three-person tent for four seasons will be twice as heavy as a two-person tent for three seasons and two to three times more expensive.
As a basic rule: if you share a tent with a few companions, it's best not to weigh more than 1.5 kilograms per person.But there is one exception to this rule is that if you carry a single tent, is likely to exceed the standard, this is you to enjoy intimate, comfortable space in the field must pay the price.
Shape: from shape, the tent is generally divided into tunnel and dome.The dome type tent is the most widely used type of tent nowadays because of its convenience, reasonable space and ideal weight and wind resistance.The biggest advantage of the dome tent is that it has excellent wind resistance.In addition, there is A traditional type A tent, which is small in space but simple in structure. It is now rarely seen in the market.
There are two ways to set up a tent: you must use the stake, and you can use the stake without it.The advantage of the former (most of which are tunnel tents) is that it is lighter and has better wind resistance because it saves the number of poles.The latter (domed tents are mostly of this type) have the advantage of being convenient to use and can be moved as a whole without having to be reinstalled, but it has poor wind resistance.
Waterproof and breathable property: a good tent should be able to meet both the requirements of waterproof and breathable.This is because, although tent waterproof properties stressed the importance of the process, but if a tent waterproof properties is good, only has very poor permeability, it could make out the condensation in the tent wall, and then to a wet sleeping bag.
