The choice of camping tent fabric
The rainproof performance of the camping tent mainly lies in the fabric.
The technical indicators of waterproof fabrics are subject to the degree of waterproofing.
Waterproof is only AC or PU coated on the outside. Generally only used for children or game accounts.
Waterproof 300MM is generally used for beach tents/shading tents or cotton tents for drought and less rain
Waterproof 80MM-1200MM is used for conventional simple camping tents.
Waterproof 1500MM-2000MM is used for mid-range tents, which need to travel for many days.
Waterproof tents above 3000MM are generally professional tents that have been treated with high temperature/cold resistance techniques.
The high-quality rainproof tarpaulin not only has a high rainproof index, but also has a thick rubber strip at the joint of the awning line to prevent water seepage at the seam.
Although the rainproof index of the outer tent is high, ventilation is a problem. Even on a sunny night without rain, after a nap, the inner surface of the tent will still be covered with water droplets, especially when setting up tents on wet ground such as grass. If it accumulates, it will drop into the internal account. Relatively speaking, an external account with a low rainproof index has less internal area water than a high rainproof account.
