Need A Tent? Things To Ask Yourself Before Getting One

Mar 24, 2008
Outdoor adventure surely spells a rollercoaster of fun. Soon as you thought about having one, it's time to prepare the necessities. Food, lighting, extra clothes and of course, your list should always include a tent. Whether you're in for a whole afternoon on the beach or you'll be spending a night or two out in the forest, you need the comfort and protection of tents.

Shopping for one can be an overwhelming experience though. With a lot of choices in the market, you may end up getting the wrong one for your trip. To start off, you can opt for branded ones such as Coleman tents to be assured you're getting quality tents.

Tents should be made of lightweight and durable materials because you will surely be packing a lot of stuff. Hence, a tent should not be too bulky and heavy to fit in. Also, it should be easy to assemble and with detailed instructions so you don't have to waste so much time figuring out where you'd use that pole or bolt. This would mean saving a lot of time for camping fun!

After you have decided on the brand of your choice, you'll be amazed to see different models to suit different adventures and budget. If you're on a tight budget, sale period is always a great time to buy one for yourself or give as presents to your loved ones. Imagine that you are giving them a gift to make them think of relaxation and having fun. We have one at home which we use even if it's just spending a night at our rooftop.

Another consideration when buying tents is where you'll be using it. This question is usually decided upon before you have thought of getting one but in case the purchase comes in ahead of that, keep in mind that every tent is especially tailored for a destination. Going to some icy cold region requires tents that could provide warmth while in a jungle trip, you need to bring a tent that gives proper ventilation and at the same time protect you from insects and rain showers. If you're totally unsure where you'd like to bring your tent, choose classic, multipurpose designs.

Probably the last thing to ask before zeroing on the right tent is the size. Different sizes are usually determined by the number of people that can fit in. Your family, friends or whoever's going with you may want a separate tent. In that case, you may opt for some smaller-sized solo tents instead of a large group tent. Some of the larger tent options also have small, separate rooms inside. There are also kiddie tents to accommodate the little travelers. Whichever you choose, make sure you'll get one where you can sit or stand and move comfortably.

Buying tents can be really exciting since you can already imagine the different outdoor experiences you can have bringing them. Take a break from months or years of working hard and unleash the Indiana Jones in you! And hey, let the kids come along for added fun!
