The most important thing you should ask yourself when buying a tent is: In what way am I going to use it? Camping with the family, play for the children at home in the garden, the festival, cycling holiday with the boy or girlfriend, or perhaps for mountain hiking?
CAMPING AND FAMILY ESTATE
This is the best-selling category of tents. The family versions have grown bigger, better and easier. The old horsemen weighed 110 bs (50 kg) and demanded a football team to mount at the campsite. Tents nowadays are constructed in the same way as the small tents.
PLAY AND FESTIVAL SALES
This type of tent is of a simple construction. They are easy to install and take up little space in the gasket. Tissues are not always completely waterproof and the seams are not taped. The thought of the tents is that they are cheap to buy and it is not too costly if they glow or break.
Common to all mountain tents are low weight, aluminum arches and focus on stability which makes them withstand harder use than normal camping types. These tents are in other words more robust and well suited for harsher vegetations.
When you discuss and read about tents, there are a number of different terms that are important to know. Here are some of the most central concepts for those who want to learn more about tents:
1. Duplex tent – Construction on tents with crossed arches. Wind stable tent that is self-evident. That is, when you sat in the arches, the tent tensioned itself. Coupe tents are extra good for use on rocks and other hard surfaces, as it can be difficult to put tent pooves in the ground.
2. Tunnel tents – Description on tents with parallel arches. The construction makes it easy to manufacture spacious tents, which offer a good place for packing.
3. Water pillar – Measurement of how much water pressure the tent fabric can withstand. The higher the number, the more pressure can handle the fabric.
4. Stitched seams – For seams to be waterproof, a tape is stuck on the outside of the seam, inside the outer tent.
5. Polyester – Synthetic fabric that is more robust and more resistant to UV radiation than for example nylon.
