The difference between alpine tents and outdoor camping tents
Ordinary camping tents mostly adopt the yurt style, with 2-3 carbon fiber tent poles, which provide better rainproof performance and certain windproof performance, and the air permeability is relatively good. The four-season tents or alpine tents are mostly tunnel type, with more than 3 aluminum alloy poles, and many auxiliary designs such as ground nails and windproof ropes. Alpine tents are not rainproof and are usually heavy, making them unsuitable for outdoor travel on weekends (except in extreme winter environments).
Alpine tents have a narrower space than camping tents. The comfort pursued by alpine tents is higher than the harshness of the environment, which means that a slight concession in weight can be made to meet the comfort of the space.
Alpine tents can choose more materials than camping tents within the range of meeting their environmental requirements. As far as the poles are concerned, you can choose carbon, fiberglass or aluminum poles.
The poles of alpine tents generally use fiberglass poles and aluminum poles. The advantage of fiberglass rod is that it is cheap, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to age, brittle, break and be heavy. The camping tent has the characteristics of strong shear and shunt wind, no rain, small size after folding, and easy to carry. And it has the characteristics of high strength, good stability, small volume after folding, and convenient transportation and carrying.
