How to Choose a Camping Tent - Tips for Beginners

Three-person tourist tents are suitable for outdoor recreation in a small company. Such models are compact in size and do not take up much space in your luggage during the transition between parking lots.

Types of tourist local tents

Camping tents are for hiking. The conditions in which the equipment will be used are important. There are the following types of equipment for use:

• For plains. Ordinary small tents, which are designed for simple hikes along hiking trails, in plains and in woodlands. The resistance to rain and wind is not very high.

• Expeditionary. These specimens are similar to the plain models, but they have greater resistance to wind and water. These are versatile tents. With them you can go on a trip on flat terrain or an uncomplicated mountain hike.

• Assault. Such specimens are suitable for any kind of hiking, but they are created for difficult trips to the mountains. Designed for the highlands, the tent will cope with any weather. Assault tents have light weight, moderate capacity, quick assembly. But the price is quite high.

• Extreme. These tents are suitable for abnormally difficult conditions: alpine camps, the Far North, etc.

Depending on the season of use, three-person tents are of the following types:

• Summer tents used in clear and warm weather. The device of a tent for summer use does not provide for its installation in case of strong winds and rainstorms. The main advantages are ventilation, compact size and low price.

• Tents for three seasons, excellent protection even in the pouring rain. Can be used at any time of the year, except for winter.

Choosing a tourist tent today is greatly complicated by a large assortment presented in off-line and on-line stores. The number of models of both domestic and foreign manufacturers cannot be counted. As a rule, tents of domestic brands are made in Russia, foreign ones - in China and other Asian countries. But this does not determine their quality and price, but the purpose of the tent, its size, quantity and combination of special options.

Talking about how to choose the right tourist tent, I will not talk about specific brands, because, from my point of view, there is no leader in this market whose products are better than others.

In the review of tourist tents, I will give their classification, describe the various designs and main characteristics, tell you what nuances you should pay attention to when buying.

Types of tourist tents

Before choosing a tourist tent, you need to decide what you need it for.

Classification of tourist tents by purpose:

In the description of tents, manufacturers usually indicate in what weather conditions and in what area (flat or mountainous) it can be used.

From left to right: camping tents, tent tent

For example, if a hike is mountainous or sports, but passes through the "green" (forest and meadows), then a trekking tent is convenient here, it is also called a tourist tent. It is put in any place and quickly enough, many models are installed without braces.

If the journey involves not a route, but radial exits or climbing (in one day), then it is convenient to have a spacious camping tent in the camp. With a large number of participants, it will serve as a staff room or as a kitchen.

A high-altitude tent is preferable for a difficult hike with entry into the snowy zone. Often it is the same trekking one, but with enhanced wind resistance and a skirt, and sometimes without a mosquito net. Among the high-altitude tents there are also special ones - high-altitude extreme. They are usually single-layer of membrane fabric or with a second layer sewn to the first.

Tents are also classified by size: from single to ... The capacity indicated by the manufacturer does not always provide a comfortable stay in the tent. Therefore, before choosing a tent for a hike, pay attention to its internal size: the length should be 2 - 2.20 m, and the width should be 70 cm (or so) per person.

Our family double trekking tent No Name in the Ukrainian Carpathians/photo S. Makhlov

I have a lot of experience of living in tents: hiking in Russia, camping in Europe, even spent the night in frost. For me, living in a tent is not torture, but a comfortable rest. Climbed inside and at home.

At one camp site in Myshkin, our neighbors in the meadow for the first time got out with a tent into nature. They were enough for one night. Early in the morning they got into the car and drove home. They said that spending the night in a tent was a torment.

I am telling you how to choose the right tourist tent for a family vacation so that spending the night does not turn into torment for you.

The most important thing is that the tent should be two-layer.

Don't even look at single-layer tents from Ashan. A camping tent is a greenhouse, but if it has two layers, it is a ventilated greenhouse. Moreover, in a two-layer and in cold weather, it is warmer and drier.

A two-layer tent consists of a waterproof awning and the tent itself, made of thin breathable fabric. The awning covers from the rain from above. There is a decent ventilation gap between it and the ground.

The inner tent is thin, lightweight and has windows that can be opened in any weather, because there will be an awning above you. Depending on the design of the awning, it can also be opened if it's hot and you still won't get wet with rain.

The single layer tent is all waterproof. It will be chilly in the morning, and you will wake up in a puddle of what you breathed during the night. Small vents won't help even if you sleep there alone. The same will happen in the rain. The tent will be damp due to condensation.
