To choose and use camping tents, you should first understand its sub-sections and styles. At present, there are many types of tents on the market. As far as their classification is concerned, travel friends who play outdoors like to divide them into two categories:
The first category is: high mountain tents, which are mainly designed to cope with relatively harsh conditions. The performance indicators focus on wind resistance, rain resistance, and high strength. The choice of materials is more sophisticated, and the production process is more complicated. It belongs to the middle and high-end tents. , Applicable to mountaineering, the complex climate environment when expedition.
The other type is what we usually call, tourist type. It is designed for general outings and camping. It pays more attention to economy in the selection of materials. The production process is relatively simple. It is a low-grade tent and can be used in general environments. Camping activities.
2. The structure and specifications of the tent
Due to the different requirements of travelers, the tent design is divided into different structural forms. Specifically, it can be divided into single-room structure and hall-tent structure:
The space of the single-room structure is designed only for sleeping, focusing on reducing the volume and weight. The tent of the hall-canopy structure is a room for sleeping and an outer hall with a canopy. In addition to being more advantageous in terms of wind and rain protection, it also provides space for existing equipment.
In order to adapt to different temperature environments, tents are divided into single-layer, double-layer, and three-layer structures:
The advantages of a single layer are lightness, economy, small size, and relatively simple manufacturing process. The difference between the double layer and the single layer is that a layer of inner tent with better air permeability is added to the design, which mainly solves the contradiction of water condensation on the inner wall of the single layer tent. Because in the cooler season, the heat discharged by the human body will condense on the inner wall of the tent under the action of the cold air outside the tent, and the stagnant water will wet the sleeping bag when it flows down the inner wall of the tent. The tent is not directly connected to the bottom of the inner tent. The heat emitted by the human body will pass through the inner tent, and the water drops condensed on the outer tent can flow through the ground. In this sense, single-layer tents are mainly suitable for warmer regions or seasons. Double-layer tents are suitable for cool seasons or cold areas. The design of the three-layer tent is to add another layer of cotton tent to the inner tent to further enhance the thermal insulation effect. This kind of tent is used in an environment of minus 10 degrees, and the temperature in the tent can rise to about zero.
