For friends who have entered the outdoors, we should know the types of tents and what kind of tent is suitable for our current travel routes.

1) Double space 220cm x 135cm, height 105cm is a reasonable double standard. Such space will bring comfort to everyone, there will be no pressure. The legs will also have plenty of room for camping supplies such as backpacks.

2) Function: the function of a tent is generally manifested in the prevention of wind, rain and snow, mosquitoes, ventilation, this is the basic function, with these basic functions, you can be in the outdoors to sleep a good sleep.

3) About weight: generally a double account at about 2 kg weight, the basis of a single account at around 1.5 kg, the weight of this should already be in the acceptable range, on the premise of guarantee function is more and more light, of course, is a trend, but some of the products in order to reflect is very light weight, with a diameter of 7.5 mm curtain rod and thin fabrics such as fabric under 15 d specifications, etc., on the basis of the weight also destroyed the windproof and wear-resisting performance, personally, I think it is not advisable. Light quantification is too much pursuit and blind, but loss of comfort and space. There are also some non-self-sustaining products, which are also very difficult for the junior mountain friends to control. Such as there are some products are enclosed single account (such as A single tower, the products are mainly used for temporary use uv block wind block rain, there are A lot of mosquitoes in the outdoor ants mouse, it is hard to prevent this type of single layer structure, the primary four camping is not recommended.

The account outside the door of the zipper position to be within easy reach. One can expand the hall, door should have enough auxiliary space for equipment, vents try to be opposite, let air convection, vents fixed position as far as possible on high, cold air will produce the breath and body heat up evaporation can be smoothly so that the heat evaporate, reduce condensation water and reduce the frost phenomenon. Also improve some small details, such as storage bag, lights, etc... The best design of the external ledger should be highlighted, which will help the top of the water to be well separated. This will give a good indication of the shape of a tent.

Type of tent

1. Mountain tents

Mainly function embodied in the wind, and wind resistance mainly depends on stents to reflect, USES in the majority of the rod cross structure, form a rod and rod auxiliary force to achieve the best wind resistance, of course, the disadvantages of this structure is beyond the weight of exception, so this kind of equipment highly specific, is generally for adventure professionals, mountain tents and a main function is to keep warm, warm now type in the account of the fabric is a layer of resin paste, this kind of fabric is warm and has certain permeability.

In our country in the southern region, a good base for three seasons account can handle even a four year camp's basic requirements, the function of the tent is mainly aimed at its ventilation, southern region especially when camping at night, the body releases a lot of heat and gas breathing, atmospheric pressure and low in rainy weather, the body to release gas encountered outside account of difference in temperature can reflect the formation conditions, the formation of condensation water attached to the outer account above. This is important to the space flow of the external account, the external curtain of the three season account is generally waterproof index 1500mm~ 2000mm, this kind of cloth is more than enough for general precipitation. The current European and American markets in order to save costs as much as possible, now more and more three quarters of the bill was designed to account within the entire network structure. The account even without air vents, but the use of the internal and external accounts account sufficient isolation to increase ventilation.

4. Family tent

This kind of self-driving tent is very popular in Europe and the United States and Japan and South Korea. The tent space is large, and the design of the main hall and the bedroom is a good family gathering equipment.

Fastigium tents space is limited, but it's fun, such as the pyramid structure, appearance is glamorous, have certain technical requirements to the user, also is to through assisted wind rope to enhance the wind resistance, but because he has some streamline design, wind resistance performance if the basic structures, the comparison of equilibrium, the wind resistance rather than some cross tent is better.

Even ordinary double silicone fabric only 8 kilograms, tunnel account support method is very simple, can choose the best DeDing of soft ground, pull the first bevel symmetrical four corners, then fix the rest of the fixed point, hard ground under the not DeDing can also use stones, sandbags to fixed, etc.

The structure of the tent

From the structure of the tent,it can divide into the DOME, the spire (A) ,TUNNEL and frog design. Dome tent we usually call it can stand on its own tent, we see most of the most common is cross, this tent structures, simple, the space is good, is the ideal choice of primary four, wind resistance of this kind of tent may be less, because of his windward side is equal, individual account is no good support, can only rely on the wind rope to balance and tensile strength of the fabric.

3. A cheap, single-layer tent, which can only be used at the floor of the forest floor, must be well ventilated because the single-storey tent is completely waterproof and not breathable. So it's best to double it

4. Different tent designs have different support levels. You should consider your own use, especially the snow season.
