If you are looking for camping tent, usually it off at the campsite directly from the car and the weight does not matter. For children to play, a place for an afternoon nap or “store” for food or fishing gear you do not need a tent with high protection against water and more than one layer. Tents are not weigh much, but are single or with a specific shape that is slightly uncomfortable to wear in transition.
The second criterion is vmestimosta tent – or how many people sleep in it. Mainly divided into a local – solo tents, super lightweight and small. Double – for two plus luggage – ideal for several day hikes as it does not weigh much.
Three – four local – more useful for camping and camp – you can always distribute the elements of the tent between backpacks and so to save on weight (usually 4-5 kg of this type), and make a small camp. And family tents that have more than one department. The family are usually around and above 10 kg.
Expeditionary tents are made to meet the requirements so that usually cost quite expensive.
The main components of the tent are few and selection is good to pay attention to each of them. The cover is the outer layer of the tent (for dual layer tents). It is waterproof, the amount of water to which you will stay dry noted in the leadership of the tent. This is one of the most – important elements when buying a tent, lest you find yourself wet there in the first rain because you chose color or appearance.
Typically the amount of water is measured with a water column of mm 3 and for the most common models vary from 2500 to 5000 mm.

Reiki determine the shape and strength of the structure. They are aluminum (more common and more expensive option) and microfiber. The skeleton that they build is formed vision of the tent. The most common form is the igloo where two equal length rods cross diagonally.
There are tents made – low (usually solo tents) for better stability throughout the wind. Also in – low (in most cases) and the tunnel are tents with 2 or 3 slats along its length. As can be seen from the name in the tunnel are usually long and the input is from the front. Pegs and side ties add stability of the tent.
