Here is the right guideline for how to choose a camping tent. There are different types of tent according to their characteristics. That is why; we must take into account different aspects when choosing the tent to acquire to meet our expectations.
One of the first questions to ask when buying a tent is how many people will sleep in the tent. Also, take into account the dimensions of the luggage and / or material to be taken. In addition, in case you ever camped with one other person, the same tent will fulfill your needs.
On the other hand, it should be considered the type of exit that is made: how many days it lasts, if they are going to spend many nights in the tent, if it is essential to rest well ... Since it depends on these characteristics will need inflatable mattresses, they will occupy more space than the mats.
Particular attention should be given to this point depending on the type of output to be made. This will happen in the case of a mountain climbing and trekking, since we will have to be aware that, apart from the material one will carry, it will also have to load the tent. In these occasions we advise to spread the weight among the different hikers so that the route does not become so heavy for the one who loads the tent.
Depending on the type of activity to be performed, the tent must meet certain characteristics.
One of the most relevant aspects when choosing a tent is its resistance to inclement weather, rain, wind or other weather conditions that can occur. Above all it is important that it is resistant to different weather conditions if what we want is to be able to go trekking or mountaineering with it.
As discussed above, the weight should be taken into account. Unfortunately, those lighter tents are the least resistant. So in case of fast cycling or mountain trails, we advise you to choose a light tent to carry more comfortably.
In case of foreseeing bad weather, a quick, easy and comfortable assembly will be appreciated, since you can protect before rain, snow or wind. However, this factor is not of such relevance because all tents tend to be fairly simple to assemble.
What can help us choose the tent is the number of pickets you need to keep it secure. Keep in mind that in the mountain not all terrain is soft, so it may take longer to nail a spike.
Tents can be igloo or Canadian type (peak shaped). Both can have one or more rooms. Those models suitable for 1 or 2 people usually have only one room. They may also have a separate storage space for luggage.
On the other hand, family tents for 5-8 people usually have more than one room; although there are also one-room family tents.
