Watch a tutorial – The best way to know what you’re buying is to do your research and watch a tutorial on the tent you’re planning to buy. Seeing the tent on a tutorial or another kind of video will give you a realistic expectation of the size, the setup, and how many people it can comfortably house during your holiday. When viewing a tutorial on the tent, take a note of how easy it is to build from the video and any tips the uploader has while building.
Find out about the build - Building a tent can be difficult, especially if you’re camping alone. Reading reviews from people who have purchased the tent previously is recommended too. If you’re really nervous, you should attempt to put the tent up in your garden at least once, so you’ll know what to expect. Being familiar with the build as well as any tips or advice you find could be extremely useful when you’re trying to put up a tent quickly before it goes dark!
Choose the right material – Tents are made from different materials with different properties, so choosing the right one is essential for your camping trip. There are several things you should take into consideration, like the weather at your location, the temperatures to expect, and whether you’re looking for something lightweight that’s easy to transport if you’re travelling around.
Types of tent material
Synthetic –Nylon and polyester tents are usually more affordable, lightweight, quick to dry and low maintenance, which makes them a common choice for family tents and backpackers.
Cotton and canvas –These materials are less common but they’re better for weather extremes as they stay cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold weather. The material also reduces condensation and is durable, making it long-lasting.
Poly-cotton –A hybrid of polyester and cotton. These tents have the durability and temperature control of cotton tents but the lightweight and mildew resistance properties of polyester tents.
