Checklist Throwing Tent

  • Check if the tent has an outer and inner tent or just a single layer. If possible, the outer wall should be rain and wind resistant, and the inner wall should be breathable. Common materials are:
    • Nylon: insensitive to wetness and abrasion, relatively tear-resistant; expands due to moisture and is UV-sensitive.
    • Ripstop nylon: reinforced nylon fabric that expands less when wet and is even more tear-resistant than normal nylon.
    • Polyester: UV resistant, tear and abrasion resistant; heavier than nylon and less breathable.
  • A silicone or polyurethane (PU) coating improves the weather resistance of the outer tent.
  • Your pitching tent needs to provide enough space and protection for all the people and your gear.
  • Classic throwing tents are usually suitable for 1 to 2 or for up to 4 people. These tents have a height between 90 and 120 cm. Per person you should allow at least a width of 50 – 60 cm.
  • The similarly constructed Quick-up tents and Air-beam tents are available for up to 6 people. Some of these models have standing height, others have similar heights as the classic throw-up tents.
Weight And Pack Size
  • If you transport the tent by vehicle, you can take a heavier model.
  • For hiking and biking, lightweight or ultra-lightweight roll tents are suitable.
  • The less storage space you have, the smaller the packing dimensions of the tent should be.
  • 3-season tents can be used from spring to fall.
  • 4-season tents can be used all year round.
  • For occasional camping a simple throw tent is sufficient.
  • If you are going on tours in difficult weather conditions, you need a stable model with:
    • high water column.
    • good wind protection.
    • coated, tear-resistant materials.
  • Check what comfort the tent offers:
    • several vents for air exchange.
    • Tent pockets and other storage options for equipment.
    • Suspension for a lamp.
    • Insect nets.
    • openings for natural light and view.
    • Awning for storage of luggage and shoes.
