Outdoor tent choose tips

Update:19 May
Who you want to go camping with directly decides how much tent space you want to buy. Usually the single tent space is about: length 200cm, width 130cm, height 105cm, double tent 220cm x 140cm x 110cm.

The Outdoor Tents space is designed according to the proportion of the human body. The average shoulder width of Asians is about 50cm, and the height is 175cm. Therefore, the shoulder width is 2 times, and the height is 40-50cm higher than the height. The height of the person sitting up is the space of the tent.

Under normal circumstances, for outdoor camping alone, the space of a single account is enough to meet personal needs; if it is an outdoor team camping, the editor recommends choosing a double account.

Because the weight of the single tent is usually about 1.5kg, and the double tent is about 2kg, the weight is similar, but the space is much larger, and it is comfortable to live in. The important thing is that you can share the weight of the tent for the group members in the case of a mess; If you are traveling with a family or multiple people, you can purchase a three-person or multi-person account.

1. Tent size (number of users)

The general camping tents rule is to calculate the width of at least 65cm for one person. For example, if two people use it, the width is at least 130cm, and the length is generally not less than 2 meters.

It should be noted that if the weight is considered for hiking camping, it can be calculated directly according to the above method, and generally it is mainly a single account/double account, but if you drive directly to the campsite, you can +1 or +1 according to actual needs. +2 option, for example, if 2 adults use it, you can choose a triple account. Strong children can calculate and increase the amount by themselves~~

In addition, if you have children or pets traveling with you, it is also recommended to choose a larger size. If you have a large demand for space, you can consider bringing a hall or matching a canopy.

2. Waterproof coefficient (outer account waterproof, inner account breathable)

The outer tent is waterproof and the inner tent is breathable, two essential points for a high-quality tent.

The most common tent coating is PU coating, PU is a polyurethane polymer organic matter, PU coating is a stable and low temperature resistant coating, commonly used on various fabrics.

The thickness of the PU coating and the coating technology determine the waterproofness of the fabric, and the coating thickness is expressed in mm, indicating the static waterproof column height of the coating under laboratory conditions.

The PU800 coating shows that the coating is non-leakable under a static water column of 800mm. PU800 coating provides protection against light to moderate rain.

The coating of PU1000-1200 can prevent moderate to heavy rain.

Coatings over 1500mm can basically be used in various environments.

The tents are generally made of breathable fabrics. The breathability of breathable fabrics is bidirectional. When the outside humidity is high, the moisture will also penetrate into the fabric. The texture of nylon cloth mainly depends on the quality of nylon yarn, textile density, dyeing technology and textile technology. There are 170T, 190T, 210D and higher weave nylon fabrics in terms of density.

3. Strength and resilience of struts

The tent pole must have high strength and good resilience. The best tent poles at the moment are carbon poles, aluminum alloy down, fiberglass down, and iron poles (except for troops that are almost useless).

The wind resistance of a tent is not only related to the texture diameter of the tent poles, but also to the number of sets of tent poles. Generally speaking, the more sets of tent poles, the better the wind resistance performance.

4. The bottom of the account should be waterproof and wear-resistant

The bottom of the account is required to be waterproof and strong and wear-resistant. The commonly used materials for the bottom of the account are PE cloth and waterproof polyester cloth. PE tent bottom is used for middle and low-grade tents, and waterproof polyester cloth is used for middle and high-grade tents. PE is a polyethylene material, similar to a low-grade snakeskin bag. The actual tent uses a double-sided PE material with a waterproof membrane, including a large number of export tents. The bottom of the tent is in contact with the ground and is easily scratched by debris such as gravel, grass roots and branches. Therefore, before camping outdoors, clean up hard objects on the ground, or use tent floor cloth to lay the ground on the surface as a protective layer. Tent floor cloth generally uses 420D wear-resistant Oxford cloth.

5. Choose tents with front and rear double doors or windows

The front and rear double doors or the tent with the window is more conducive to ventilation, which ensures the air circulation in the tent and does not feel stuffy when using it. At this point, the new quick-opening tent is better designed and has better ventilation.

6. Reasonable design

The tent design should be reasonable, and there should be enough ground and windproof rope. Auxiliary accessories such as packaging bags, tent nails, tent ropes also affect the use of the tent. The packaging bag should be sturdy and durable, the number of tent nails should be sufficient, the strength of the aluminum nail should be large, and the tent rope should be used to fix the tent.
