Generally speaking, we are divided tents into automatic tent and hand tent.If it is a backpacker, the choice of traditional hand tent is more convenient, light weight, carrying and building are more convenient, after disassembly can be directly put into the backpack; Automatic tent is generally used more when the park outing and self-driving tour, self-driving family can choose to open the automatic tent, construction and storage will be more fast and convenient, the weight is heavier, it is more suitable for the trunk.
Because the weight of the hand tent is light, it is more convenient to carry,so today we mainly talk about the hand tent.
"Types of tents"
In terms of the structure of the tent, it can be roughly divided into four types:
1. Geodesic tent; 2. DOME. 3. TUNNEL tent. 4. Ultralight tent.
Dome tent we usually call it can stand on its own tent, and we see the most, is the most basic structure of cross tent pole, the tent structures, simple, the space is good, is the ideal choice of primary four, this kind of tent KangXue wind pressure resistance is very outstanding, so this kind of tent is used most widely, more famous dome tent, For example, The Cold Mountain series of Mu Gaodi, including the foreign brand MSR's Huba, also use the dome design.
According to the characteristics of the season, it can be divided into: 1, four seasons tent (mountain tent); 2. Three-season tent.
The main function of the four seasons tent is reflected in the wind resistance and snow pressure resistance performance, so in the tent pole and the external account of the material, will choose the strength of the material, to ensure its functionality, so this kind of tent also has a disadvantage is heavy weight, such as The Cold mountain four seasons tent of Mu Gaoli, the weight is about 2.5kg. Another function is to keep warm, the general four seasons of the inside of the tent will be half gauze net, and now part of the warm inside the fabric is scraped a layer of resin pulp, this fabric is both warm and has a certain air permeability.
Three season tents are designed for spring, summer and fall, and are the dominant products in the global tent market. Because three season tents occupy the main camping season for ordinary consumers, it is also one of the reasons why brands have the most abundant product lines. Three seasons of the tent outside the tent cloth general waterproof index between 1500mm~3000mm, this cloth for general precipitation is more than enough, a little better even can prevent rain. In order to save the cost as much as possible in the European and American market, more and more of the current three quarter accounts are designed into the full network structure of internal accounts. The external account even does not have a vent, but uses the external account and the internal account to fully isolate to increase ventilation.
Reduction in grindability. Generally speaking, 20D nylon fabric will be single-sided silicon, a little better and double-sided silicon, its waterproof performance is very good. The double-decker design works best when most tents get soaked in the rain for long periods of time. The inside of the tent will collect water and fall to the ground. (If the tent is not waterproof and in a rainstorm, the inside of the tent will even drop water directly onto the inside.) According to these characteristics, camping tent recommendations do not choose single-layer, single-layer tent is only suitable for park games.
There are three common ways to support a tent: 1. The inner support and outer cover are supported by the bracket, and then the waterproof outer cover is put on, and then fixed. This bracing method is more convenient, most tents use the supporting method of supporting inside and outside.
2, the external support inside hanging, that is, first hold up the external account, and then put the internal account on the external account. This support method is more conducive to rain, because the inside of the tent and the external tent always keep a certain distance, but the first time to support the cost of some time.
Precautions for use of camping and hiking tents:
1. When putting up a tent, the tent must be stretched straight, the wind rope should be pulled, and the nail should be played to avoid contact with the tent, and the water drops inside the waterproof tent should penetrate into the tent;
2, the tent is not exposed to the sun at high temperature, the base cloth is not placed on the high temperature beach and the ground, so as to prevent PU aging, avoid waterproof performance decline;
3, when the tent, to slowly roll, to have a direction to drive away the air in the tent, if the air in the case of no outlet roll tent, the air can only break through the waterproof layer, which will greatly affect the waterproof performance.
