Which camping tent is better?
Basically, outdoor camping tents can be classified according to the size, number of tents, bracket type, waterproof degree, and usage occasions.
I will systematically say according to the type of bracket and the degree of waterproofing. These two indicators are also the most important indicators of the tent.
There are two mainstream bracket materials for tents, the first glass pole, the second aluminum pole, and now there are carbon fiber poles. New materials are also being developed with technology.
The first type of glass rod is glass fiber, an inorganic non-metallic material with excellent performance. The main components are silica, alumina, and calcium oxide. It has good insulation, strong heat resistance, good corrosion resistance, and high mechanical strength. It is cost-effective and is currently the mainstream tent bracket type on the market.
The second type of aluminum rod, there are many kinds of aluminum alloys. Aviation aluminum is currently widely used in the aviation field. It has better mechanical and processing properties. Compared with ordinary aluminum, its mechanical and processing properties are much better. There are: 6061, 6063, 7075, etc.
Regarding the degree of waterproofing:
Water repellent, AC or PU coated on the outside, game account;
Waterproof 300MM suitable for beach tents/shading tents;
Waterproof 800MM-1200MM is suitable for conventional simple camping tents;
Waterproof 1500MM-2000MM is suitable for relatively mid-range tents and travel;
Waterproof 3000MM or more Suitable for professional tents, processed with high temperature/cold resistance and other technologies.
In addition, the bottom of the account is very important! A senior travel club checked the bottom of the tent for the first time, and now the better tents are made of Oxford cloth, and the waterproof level must be at least 1500mm.
