There are many types of tents on the market, models perfectly adapted for beach camping, models for hiking or models suitable for expeditions, and prices also differ depending on the type of tent and the materials from which it is made. The idea is that when you choose to keep in mind two important factors: how many people will use it (and put an extra place, but which will not be "occupied", but will function as an extra space for luggage storage and a longer sleep. and where exactly do you propose to go more often with him (mountain, beach, camping). Remember, if you want to use it even in colder times, thin tents, in summer, are not good. There are also thermal insulated tents.
The waterproofing of the tent is perhaps one of the most important factors, because it is hard to believe that an entire stay is not marked by a rain. The outer foil must be able to hold the water outside even if it is raining. It is advisable that the outer film can hold a water column between 3000 (minimum) and 8000 mm. Among the features of the manufacturer you need to be a waterproof tent, not water resistant (which only means that the material is waterproof, not waterproof.
The design of the tent counts for comfort: some people like to have a veranda cover, so they can sit in the air, but also in the shade or in the rain shelter in front of the tent. But here you can remember that there are tents with two entrances, which can ensure a good ventilation and on hot days, so you can stay in them and during the day. The more equipment, however, the more difficult the tent. This depends, of course, on the number of persons, but also on the materials from which it is made, on the sticks and on the film that covers it. But it may be more comfortable to spend more money on two tents than two people, than on one of four, because you can distribute your luggage.
Where is the tent to be fitted?
It is preferable that the campsite be straight to avoid any accumulation of water around the tent if it is raining. If there are stones, twigs or other materials in the chosen place, we must free the space before setting up the tent, so that there are no bumps or objects that could damage the base of the tent or make a rest. We can imagine that it rains or blows the wind and then we locate the farthest area, the most protected from the weather. A good idea is to mount the tent in the shade if possible, both for our thermal comfort and because over time the action of the sun rays deteriorates the material from which the tent is made and can affect its impermeability.
The tent is mounted with closed entrances, with patience, in order not to force the joints. Of course, the tent must be anchored using the pegs included in the package and it is good to insert them into the ground at an angle of 35-40 degrees, for more adhesion and stability. These, fortunately, are for you in different models and sizes depending on your needs. If you are traveling with your family for a better organization, we recommend LED pegs for better visibility at night. If possible, the tent should be anchored a little on the slope, enough that there is a drain for rainwater. For better use, we provide you with a wide range of pegs for the tent and their extraction systems, very useful for the moment when the holiday ends, and the tent must be tightened.
Now that you know how to set up a tent, it only remains to plan your vacation and buy the necessary accessories.
