Checklist Camping Tent

Size
  • The size of the tent should be chosen according to the number of people. Plan 50 to 70 cm space per person in the width, so wide are average air mattresses.
  • Also plan space for your luggage.
  • Consider the height of the tent. The more time you spend in the tent, the higher it should be.
  • Also consider the weight of the tent: the bigger the tent, the heavier it is.
Material
  • Polyester is a strong fabric and also offers UV protection and does not let moisture through.
  • Nylon, on the other hand, is less tear-resistant and UV-resistant, but lighter.
  • Note the water column of the tent. This indicates up to what water pressure the coating can withstand. Most tents have a water column of 1,500 to 2,000 mm, if you want to be on the safe side, take one with 3,000 mm.
Shape
  • Steep wall tents have almost vertical walls and are usually very high, so you can stand in them, and therefore suitable for longer stays with the family at the campsite.
  • Trekking tents are usually small and light, therefore suitable for hiking trips.
  • A Tunnel tents offers a lot of stability and space for several people.
  • At inflatable tents the supports consist of air tubes. Therefore, the construction is very easy to do with a pump.
  • As the name suggests, a Throw tent tent sets up by itself when you throw it on the ground. These tents are usually very small and not very weather resistant. Therefore, they are more suitable for short-term stays.
Comfort
  • Mosquito net in entrance and windows protects you from insects.
  • Windows let light and air into the tent.
  • An awning gives you extra storage space.
