Camping has been one of the more staple outdoor activities that most people would love to do when they have free time such as vacations and other holidays. This is a practical outdoor activity for the whole family where the things that can be done can be applied to all members of the family, from the less adventurous to the daring ones. There needs to be a good deal of planning when you want to go camping as this activity entails the cooperation of the whole family, a bunch of things to bring because when you go camping you will be exposed to the environment and the nearest medical facility maybe kilometers away. You need to do some research such as the tents you will be using or the camping essentials you need to bring. Tents have been the core shelter material for most campers and they come in different sizes, shapes, materials and many more. So before you go out on a trip you need to invest a god deal of research and budget to the procurement of a tent.

Tents maybe easy to buy if you have the right information but for most campers, they just think of the number of persons it can accommodate. There are several knowledge requirement when you buy your tents and the five key features of a tent you would like to be looking for are weather compatibility, space, price, ease of transportation and water resistance. When we talk about space, campers should think of the needs of the occupants and not just the sleeping area, there should be room accommodation for the gears, is the height proportionate, do you prefer leaning and crouching rather than standing and walking inside the tent.

Weather compatibility is also an issue because who would want to stay in a tent designed for summer when the weather is actually snowing. There are several types of tents from the summer tent that are lightweight and have better ventilation to the two or three season tent that can handle summer rains and storms to snowfalls. Another is an expedition tent that has been designed for the worst kind of weather conditions. They can withstand powerful wind, heavy rain and snow and even dropping temperatures.
