FAQ

When buying a tent, there are a few things that are important to bear in mind:

  • What material do you want? Tents are made in different materials, such as nylon or polyester, and this affects the extent of the tent's usability. Nylon has the advantage that it weighs less than polyester. At the same time, polyester is better at resisting water and maintaining its shape.
  • What size do you need? Tents are available in different sizes, and they come in different weights. These factors affect both ergonomics, people capacity, and how heavy your packing will be.
  • During which seasons will you use the tent? Which tent you choose depends, in many ways, on the season you intend to use it, as certain materials and constructions are more resistant to moisture and other weather-related phenomena.

Which colour tent you buy is a completely individual choice. Buying the colour you like the most makes sense, but there can be times when the colour of the tent serves a purpose. If, for example, you are going out bird watching, or going to camp in places where you do not want to be seen, choosing a more camouflaged tent would be an advantage. Purchasing a green tent for camping during the summer would be a good choice for those who want to blend in, and the same could be said for a white or grey tent during the winter months when it is snowing and dark.

The size of a tent is crucial for your comfort, both when you sleep and when you are travelling. It’s always good to know how many people the tent will comfortably fit and how much baggage will fit inside. If there are two people, a two-person tent is usually good enough; if you are alone, a one-person tent is usually good enough. But sometimes when you have more luggage a two-person tent may be better for one person – then there will be plenty of space to store your belongings.

What you should also bear in mind is that all tents, regardless of what they are sold as, come in different sizes and shapes – which can, of course, affect space and weight when you are packing.
