Camping can be fun or disaster depending on your foresight and level of preparedness.
If you have thought of the possible problems and have prepared in advance, then you will surely also have given enough thoughts to the tent you would like to use. You can never go wrong with Heavy duty tents.
They are all weather proof. They come in handy, no matter how bad the weather is.
Before buying such a tent, educate yourself about the various specifics you would want from your tent. Here are some pointers you could use to make your task easy:
- The amount of money you would want to spend in buying a tent.
- The purpose of buying. If you want a four season tent, it would be useful in the early winters also. A three season tent would serve your purpose and withstand three seasons, spring, summer and fall.
- Capacity it can hold. When you want it to hold 2-3 people, it would make sense to go for 4. This will ensure lot of space to the campers and not intrude upon each others space.
- The seams
- This is perhaps one of the most important deciding factor. You would not want to get in the middle of the night, all soaked with rain water or constantly dripping water. Choose a tent with the water column above 1000mm. Read the technical details carefully to ensure this.
Thought there are many other details that you can look into, these few ones will ensure that you buy a good camping tent with reasonable comfort. The heavy duty, high quality and rust resistant materials help in the durability of these tents.
Besides the main components, the accessories used such as the poles, the zippers, the rainfly etc. have to be fairly good, sturdy and user friendly. These also have mosquito screens for both the door and the window, saving you the trouble of a midnight search for bug repellents.
For durability and strength, there are double stitches at the key points and all around.
These tents also come with chimney pipe and are capable to have stove inside. The chimney hole can be covered by canvas with Velcro seal when not in use.
The price range will be a deciding factor too but considering the plain, simple usefulness of the heavy duty tents will surpass the price and in fact be cheaper when compared with the tents which are priced for less.
