Type of Tents for Camping

The types of tents for camping are usually found:

I) Canada

They are traditional tents and tent the old model, has a classic gable and made with materials that are highly durable and resistant. Although the stop was made to be used, replaced by igloos and structural advantages and technical materials to reduce weight and increase interior space.

Advantages: durable material that supports abuse, strong and sturdy buttons.
Disadvantages: very heavy, mold forming material easily and must be completely dry and clean guardades, poor maintenance of internal heat, the poor performance of the high winds that igloo.

II) Structural

This tent is designed to stay a few days, for a lot of people (for example, there are models for 10 people with 2 bedrooms and a dining room).

Advantages: comfort, because they generally have a good internal height, vertical walls, and hence increase the interior space. Parantes solid structure used fiberglass and steel. Using technical materials and quality, which make them have a good waterproof characteristics, conservation of heat and ventilation. Design and shape that offers good resistance to wind and heavy rain.
Disadvantages are heavy tent, assembly, disassembly and cleaning and people take longer than other types of tents.

III) Igloos

They are now the most widely used type of tent, replacing the traditional pick most camping Canada. This success is the result of a new synthetic material with the best features for outdoor dome with aerodynamics and offers less resistance to the wind while its light weight makes it easily transportable. Besides igloo-shaped dome can also tunnel.

There are two kinds of tents commonly called igloo: igloos and igloo 3 season 4 season.

The names of the amount of times a year because they ready the tent, will be more detail ...

Iglo from 3 stations: they are sometimes also called low mountains or trekking and the models developed and designed for during the spring, summer and fall. They are the most widely used models in general and their material waterproof and breathable capabilities suitable for normal precipitation and temperature (usually withstand up to 5000 mm of water on the floor and between 1000 and 3000 mm water column on your wall). They are easy to assemble with low weight for lightweight portability.
It is normal to have a few openings that enable them to good ventilation, and almost always has a very handy keeping backpack apse or modified before going into the tent.
Rod in this model is almost always glass fiber (see section rod type, fracture prevention, setting to learn more about stem)
The weakness of this model should consider that the elements, although their performance is very good, are more susceptible to damage than the example of Canada. To prevent tearing of cloth worth investing a little more treatment models have Ripstop (rip) and see that the thickness of the rod according to the size of the tent.
It is always good to bring an extra plastic or canvas placed under the floor and protect it from moisture, stones, and friction and prolong life.

Iglo of 4 seasons: they are called high mountain many times and it used to mean. Your material has a high degree of impermeability (with a minimum of 3000 mm water column on its roof), designed for use in high wind conditions, snow and temperatures below freezing. They have less ventilation than model 3 seasons and they stem from duralumin for greater wind resistance. In short they are uncomfortable or inadequate models for recreational camping.
