1. According to the number of people, the walking tent can be divided into single, double, three, four or more. Generally speaking, the first number that appears after the foreign hiking tent brand and model is a few, the walking tent is a few people account, more straightforward.The foreign hiking tent is designed according to the size of foreigners, and the interior is generally spacious. If you are in a normal shape, you can squeeze two people into a single account. You can squeeze three people into a double account. And so on.

While hiking tents of interior space is bigger, the stronger the living comfort, but outside the tent Pole (Pole), the bill account within (Fly), the account (Canopy) and bottom (Floor) the required materials are, the more the greater the packing weight and volume.

A Good tent is actually the Good space-to-weight Ratio of internal Space and packing weight.

The double account is more practical than a single one and three people's account: a person is more spacious than a single person, but does not have much weight or volume. When three people live, it is not too crowded, but the weight is much lighter and the volume is much smaller.

2. According to the season, hiking tents can be divided into three seasons, four seasons and mountain tents. Strictly speaking, three seasons account can only be used in spring, summer, autumn three seasons, the four seasons account can be used in any season of the year round, mountain tents called adventure account (Expedition Tent), can only be used when climbing mountains or across the polar. Of course, there are those who carry three seasons to climb four girls mountain and other snow-capped mountains. But, to be blunt, he is playing with his life.

3. Set up the inside account first, then put on the external account. 3. According to the construction method, the hiking tent can be divided into internal wear (hanging) and internal hook. The so-called "inside" (hanging) outside, refers to the hole that passes through the inside account, or hooks the hook inside the inside account to the tent pole.In recent years, many tents have been built to improve the speed of construction, and began to abandon the inside and replace them.The so-called internal hook external hanging, refers to because the inside account has already been hooked in the inside account, only need to put the hook on the outside account to hang on the tent pole.

In severe weather like blizzards (rain) and extreme cold, the tent can be built at a speed of less than 1 second, sometimes endangering the lives of outdoor athletes. Because of the cumbersome construction process and slow construction, it is seldom seen. The internal hook is built with an Exoskeleton and is built at a rapid pace. Therefore, even in the rainstorm construction, the inside account will not be soaked by the rain. However, the vast majority of hiking tents are still inside.

A good four seasons account or mountain account, in fact, is the perfect unity of strength and construction speed.

4. According to the external shape, the hiking tent can be divided into Mongolian tent (dome), frog tent, tunnel tent and pyramid tent.

Therefore, the foreign foot tent manufacturer can reduce the weight of the tent by changing the material, changing the structure, reducing the space and so on. For example, the tent pole is replaced by aluminum alloy and Carbon Fiber, and the internal and external accounts are discarded using nylon for Cuben Fiber.
