What are the most popular tent designs?
Tents come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s certainly no one-size-fits-all solution. Dome shelters are perhaps the most common style available today, and tend to feature two poles that cross in the middle, bending down to reach the corners of the fabric. This style is incredibly easy to set up and has a relatively high centre-point, giving you a decent amount of headroom and space. As such, these models are very well-matched to hardcore campers and hikers, owing to their lightweight nature and number of added vestibules (great for storing muddy trekking gear). Multi-room alternatives are also very fashionable, and are far better suited to larger families or bigger groups of friends. They’re designed to provide more than one single space for added privacy, and can showcase up to five separate compartments.
If a long-distance walk is on your agenda, finding an ultra-lightweight tent for camping in all weathers is an absolute necessity. Backpacking shelters are smaller in size than other traditional models, and are likewise incredibly durable, hard-wearing, and resilient. Generally, they have a lower profile than other tents, are typically designed for one or two people. Or, relatively new to the game, pop-up tents are also an extremely pop-ular (see what we did there!) option, designed with spring-loaded poles that burst into shape in seconds. Fab for spur-of-the-moment adventures, like festival trips and last-minute camping staycations, they’re super convenient to purchase on a whim.
How do I take care of my tent?
Taking proper care of your tent can mean the difference between it lasting one trip or many, so ensure you follow our list of handy tips and tricks to keep your shelter looking thoroughly spick and span, no matter what the weather! To get the most out of your tent, ensure that’s it has been pitched or packed away in the best possible condition before starting the steps below, as any dampness or excess water could cause mould, stains, and leakages in the future.
Tent footprints (or groundsheets cut to specifically match your make and model), duct tape, dust pans, re-proofer, and seam sealant are all fabulous accessories that can truly prolong the life of your trusty tent. It’s essential that your shelter is stored clean and dry, so be sure to wipe any excess dirt off of the interior, while simultaneously shaking excess water from the fabric. If you have to pack it away when damp, it’s vital that you air it again as soon as possible, either by hanging it over a washing line, or a string in your garage. If the material needs to be cleaned, don’t be tempted to use a harsh detergent… instead, simply wipe it down with a cotton cloth and a warm soapy solution.
