According to the requirements of using,such as camping, mountain, beach, fishing, hunting, disaster relief, the jungle, military and so on, tents can dthe following main talk about camping, hiking tent materials and design.

How to choose the hiking tents from the material and design.jpg

Camping and hiking tents’ flysheet generally use light thin polyester, nylon fabrics, so it will be light, and also can improve the fabric to the density of the fabric, foreign high-grade tents with 210 t to 300 t (warp/weft density), high density of the water proofing property will also be increased relatively, but also requires fine too high density of the silk, this strength will be decreased.

There are many kinds of coating on the hiking tents’ flysheet. Camping and mountaineering tents are generally PU, PE and silver. PU is ideal. The waterproof target of the flysheet is 800~2500mmH2O, which can affect the air permeability of the tent, and the foreign high-end tents are seldom more than 2500. Moreover, the waterproof index of the hiking tent is only a dynamic water-proof indicator, not a static water pressure indicator. The 2500mmH2O is only the instantaneous water pressure of the rain water. If it is used to use 2500 water column, it must be leaking.

Camping and hiking tents are usually made of light - thin polyester, nylon, polyester cotton breathable fabric. The advantage of cotton-polyester is moisture absorption good, the disadvantage is easy to mold, polyester, nylon advantage is easy to care. Some hiking tents’ inner tent is a large area network cloth, the advantage is breathable good, the disadvantage is the light is too transparent, the summer USES inside account only, outside can be very clear to see inside, sleep easy go to light.


Camping and hiking tent material use PE, ordinary nylon, Oxford cloth. Low grade PE bottom, PE is not wear-resistant, easy to age and brittle. The nylon bottom is used in the high hiking tent, the advantages are light, the disadvantage is poor wear resistance, easy to puncture. Oxford cloth bottom is the most mature, Oxford cloth USES silk's thick index D nominal, 210D is coarser than 150D, wear-resistant is relatively better, but the component also relatively improves a few. The higher the waterproof index of the base material, the better, generally 2000~50000mmH2O.


Camping and hiking tents’ poles are usually made of glass fiber poles and aluminum rods. Glass fiber rod advantage is cheap, the disadvantage is easy to age, brittle crack, break, heavy. The advantages of aluminum rod are light weight, strong strength, and disadvantages. Aluminum rod materials using t9 7075 or 7075 t6, early aluminum rod can produce only South Korea, the United States and Germany, Germany's quality is best, South Korea has the highest cost performance, so most of the aluminum rod tent pole come from South Korea. A few years ago the domestic aluminum rod is South Korea imported, and is a fixed code in, after complete later in order to save costs from Han Guojin domestic aluminum tube, their cutting assembling complete sets, also called South Korea aluminum pole. Recently, I heard that a domestic military enterprise with a domestic missile shell can also make aluminum tubes, but the raw materials are also from South Korea. EASTON 7075 is printed on authentic Korean original aluminum poles.


A lot of friends think camping, hiking tents regardless of inner tent,flysheet, actually should be flysheet by playing to the rubber band of tight, hang rod inside the bill to a little looser, this design is a certain stretch space under the wind.

Precautions for camping and hiking tents:


1. When setting up the hiking tent, the flysheet must be straightly to avoid contact with the inner tent, and the water beads inside the waterproof flysheet will be penetrated into the inner tent;


2. The hiking tents should not be exposed to high temperature, and the bottom cloth should not be placed on the high temperature beach and ground, so as to prevent the aging of PU and prevent the water resistance from falling.


3, when you storage the hiking tents, to roll slowly, must have the flight direction of air inside the tent, and if the air without export volume tents, waterproof layer air can only break out, it will greatly affect the waterproof properties.
