Trekking tent guide

Trekking tents have been specially designed for tours and expeditions worldwide. They are not only used as a place to sleep in outdoor activities, but also as a common room, rest room and as protection against rain and cold. For every trekking adventure, whether in the cold of Antarctica or in warm South America, suitable tents are offered. So that trekking fans in every situation completely on her tentWhen leaving the market, some important criteria must be taken into consideration.

General selection criteria for trekking tents

The most important selection criterion is the intended use. All-round models that meet all requirements do not exist. Each of the models offered has been designed for a very special, sometimes extended use. When choosing a tent, personal needs and willingness to compromise must be taken into account. Important criteria are weight, size, comfort, uncomplicated construction, stability, weather resistance, quality of workmanship, ventilation and price

Criteria for the selection of bad weather tents

When purchasing tents that are to be used especially in bad weather activities, the following criteria must be taken into account. The outer tent of the model must be pulled down to the ground. Furthermore, it must be ensured that the model is equipped with many guy options. The linkage should run on the outer tent, so that this can be built first. The inner and outer tent should both be coupled and used separately. The trekking tent should have a streamlined shape. As a rule of thumb, lower tents are more wind resistant than higher models. The linkage has to be robust and wind-stable. Despite wind stability but should always be a spare linkage in the equipment at hand. Furthermore, the tent should be equipped with several entrances. When setting up the tent make sure that at least one of the entrances is always in the slipstream. Trekking tents should definitely be easy to set up even when wearing gloves. A geodesic-like trekking tent It is recommended that high snow loads be expected in the area where the product is to be used. The tent should continue to provide sufficient storage space (Aspiden) for the complete equipment

Selection criteria for trekking tents for use in warm climates

When choosing a tent for activities in warm areas, a model with a free-standing inner tent should be preferred. If required, the outer tent can be used as additional weather protection. The trekking tent must have sufficient ventilation and should also be equipped with mosquito nets inside. Very well suited are products where the outer tent and the inner tent are made of cotton blended fabric or pure cotton, for example the model 10T Little Bighorn – 2-person trekking / touring tunnel tent.

Coatings of trekking tents

Trekking tents usually have a coating of silicone (SI) or polyurethane (PU). Silicone coatings are characterized by quality, longevity and elasticity. Compared with other coating methods, an SI coating offers the advantage of increasing the stability and tear resistance of the tent material. Silicone coatings are applied on both sides of the tent material on the majority of trekking tents so that these models are completely waterproof, for example the model Grand Canyon Cardova 1 – trekking tent (1-2-person tent), various colors.

A polyurethane coating is also a high quality coating method for trekking tents, such as the Semoo tent for 4 people. Polyurethane is characterized by a high density and is therefore also used for tent floors. PU allows a Naturverklebung and is therefore suitable for the coating of the outer tent. The polyurethane coating is applied on one side of the inside of the tent material.

While cotton blends, polyester and nylon must always be coated, trekking models made from cotton fabric are always uncoated and must therefore be impregnated to achieve waterproofness. The moisture swells up the cotton fibers, closing the gaps in the material and making the tent rainproof.

Various tent poles

Poles are tuned to the specific type of tent and made with different diameters. Tent poles for trekking tents are made of Featherlite, aluminum alloys, fiberglass rods and steel.
