Tent: stable, weatherproof and easy to set up

To ensure that a tent (e.g. dome tent, expedition tent) lasts a long time when camping and protects you from wind, moisture and cold, it must have various features clothing. When buying a tent, pay attention to the following criteria.

  • The tent poles are included in the scope of delivery. They are light, but also extremely robust - for a secure stand in any weather.
  • The tent material is water-repellent, windproof and dirt-repellent. A good model should have a water column of at least 5500 millimetres.

  • Depending on the size, there is room for one or more people inside. A large camping tent is usually divided into different inner cabins. In this way, the sleeping area and lounge area can be separated from each other.

  • Tear-resistant guy ropes secure the camping tent even in strong winds. Practical inside pockets make it easier to keep small items organised.
