A good tent is the basis for a successful trip or a relaxing holiday.
What is a good tent, is individually very different: first and foremost, it concerns as light weight or high comfort is more important? The choice is yours, but on the way to this a little to help, we have compiled a small guide. If you have any questions, you can contact of course to us, because we want you to be as happy as possible.
There are different types of tents on the market, but the three main types are tunnel tents, dome tents and teepees. In addition there are crossings, hybrid and special models, but here we focus on the most common ones.We started with the tunnel tent: This was and is a tent type popular especially as mountaineering equipment. Tunnel tents are very easy to build and offer a lot of space in relation to the weight. The apses of tunnel tents are usually much greater than that of dome tents, which will be appreciated especially on rainy days. Apart from a few exceptions, inner and outer tent are connected to each other: both are so at the same time built up, so that the inner tent remains dry even if it rains during the construction. Tunnel tents are not self-supporting and must be secured with pegs and guylines.+Simple constructionIn relation to the space light weight
Requires relatively flat floor
Not self support.
Worse static strength (i.e., the ability to withstand snow loads)
Dome tents or self-supporting tents, as they are sometimes called, are designed so that they are by themselves. In most cases, this applies to the inner tent, while the outer tent with pegs needs to be streamlined. But of course there are exceptions, such as models, which are completely self-supporting, also here i.e. both the indoor and also outdoor tent all by itself, without pegs. Dome tents are very popular on Kayak riders and climbers because they require less space and can be mounted easily on a rock or something similar. The construction with superimposed crossed poles gives a high static strength the tent. Another property, who know how to appreciate many of them is that they are usually quieter than tunnel tents.
