Big Camping tent

Camping is divided into 2 forms:

- Mobile camping: people move to the campsite by means of transportation, transporting camping equipment such as BBQ stoves, dining tables, tents, water, food, ...

- Camping for a living: people move to the campsite with their feet, carrying backpacks and luggage on their backs, applying survival skills to find water and food around the campsite.

  • Regardless of the form of camping, people are required to equip the following:

    - Tent or tarpaulin to cover the body.

    - Sleeping bag.

    - Insulation mats / mats.

    - Ropes and small wires to hang things.

    - Compass, GPS, flashlight.

    - Small knives and axes for cutting and pruning trees for wood.

    - Outdoor cooking stoves.

    - Ambulance supplies.

Tents are now commonly used for picnics, camps or refugee camps. Some of them are tired of reality, want to leave civilized life to return to nature, they set up tents in the forest or on small islands, living life like Robinson.

1. 1-Layer Tent

As the name implies, this tent consists of only 1 layer of fabric. And since it only has a single layer of cloth but it wants to resist rain, it almost has no net, only a small piece of mesh on the roof of the tent and will be covered with a small cloth when it rains.

So the downside of the tent is that although the most compact but only 1 tent class is also the most mysterious type. For the sake of this, there are 1-layer tents with a 2-layer door design - 1 layer of mesh, 1 layer of fabric.

The biggest advantage of a single-layer tent is extremely compact and easy to use, so it takes only about 2-3 minutes to erect. And the price is cheap thanks to the simple design, using less material. Well-known tent manufacturers also produce 1-layer tents to meet a large number of customers who want compactness and simplicity. If you're just wandering around the suburbs or taking light, short-term trips, a one-layer tent is a good choice.

Tent 1 layer

* Note when choosing a 1-layer tent:

   - Because there is only one layer of fabric, the most important thing for this tent is waterproof. If the tent is not handled seam seam (the most expensive manufacturing stage in the tent sewing), just a little rain or dew is enough for a terrible experience.

   - In addition, the tent door is the weak point of a single-layer tent, because there is no outer layer, the rain can splash directly into the tent's door, no matter how good the design, usually a single-layer tent still can not withstand heavy rain. Because of this, if you buy a single-layer tent, you should only choose the one-door type, you can rotate the tent to avoid direct direction of rain on the door.

   - If you decide to choose a 1-layer, non-branded, branded tent to save money, it is a good idea to check the seam (especially the 4 sides of the tent) carefully. If you don't see a layer of glue covering the seam, think again before paying for it.


2. 2-Layer Tent

This is the standard design of tent types.

The only weakness compared to a one-layer tent is that the two-layer tent is usually heavier, the erection is a bit more complicated, it takes about 5-10 minutes to complete a 2-layer tent. However, you do not need to spend any time assembling.

The other features are 2-layer tents superior than 1-layer tents.

The inner layer is often designed with a lot of mesh area so it is very airy. The outer layer is often handled by seam straightening, so the rain resistance will be guaranteed. In addition, because of the characteristics of two layers of material, dew condensation in the tent is limited. And an equally important point is that two-layer tents are usually beautiful and have a solid, more professional appearance than the monotony of single-layer tents.

Tent 2 layer

* Note when choosing a 2-layer tent

 - Just like a 1-layer tent, you also have to carefully check each seam of the 2-layer tent, especially the outer layer.

- See if the seams are handled with glue. If the seams are not glued, it is likely that they are fake, fake, or defective goods that are to be marketed. Also note the nets in the tent's inner layer.

 - Try building and checking if the outer layer covers all the net area of ​​the tent or not, because otherwise you will suffer with rain and wind when using.
