The tent is one of the key items for who’s going to sleep outdoors. With that in mind, the trails and Paths separated a list with some tips for those planning a trip and need to choose the right tent.
If you’ve never been camping, be aware that nowadays the tents may offer more comfort and protection than you think. Support wind, rain, and protect you from insects who insist on tormenting the sleep of those who are far away from civilization.
Don’t forget: you literally load your own House on the back. Therefore, considerthe weight and volume of the tent that will buy is critical so there are no regretsin the future.
Learn more about types of tents and how to increase your life with some tips that split up for you:
Everything that you will use during the trip will be loaded on your back (except, of course, if you go by car and Park next to the camp). Therefore, the weight of your tent makes all the difference.
Be you will travel accompanied, invest in a tent for two or three people, and divide the weight with your colleagues during the journey, taking advantage to saveback and legs of both. Attention: If you don’t think about sharing a tent, invest in an individual. Many people exaggerate when buying a tent for two or more people. If you camp constantly alone, there is no need for so much idle space.
Bivak tents trails and Paths

Three or four seasons? Don’t get confused when you come across this question.This is a Convention that sets the tents as being appropriate for summer, fall and spring (three stations) or for summer, autumn, spring and winter (four seasons). But understand that “winter“ here are those found in cold countries orhigh mountains – and the Brazilian winter.
If you are travelling only by Brazil, a tent 3 seasons is enough. If you’re venturingin a high mountain abroad, you certainly will choose 1 4 seasons. Not worth buying a 4 seasons Tent camping in warm places, because it can be a bit suffocatingat bedtime, plus higher cost.
We can’t forget a detail that keeps us alive: ventilation. Our body breathes and sweats all the time. So, a well ventilated shelter is essential.
During the night, the constant breathing and perspiration of the users make themoist air if condense the play colder areas, and this can cause the morning Tentwith the inner part of the wet sobreteto. In sub-zero temperatures the situationworsens a little: on the condensation, the tent can freeze and it’s hard to put it back in the bag.
So, ventilation the tent is essential to avoid this kind of problem. Let all vents open and well-ventilated during the night. A quality tent maintains good ventilation even in rain.
The seams are points of infiltration, and therefore require an additional seal thatneeds attention. A good sobreteto, with proper waterproofing and well sealed seams will keep you dry while you sleep. Tropical countries can surprise you witha storm at any time. Therefore, always check the seams, both in sobreteto and in the floor of the tent, and ensure they are well sealed and the floor supported inempoce location.
Not to be surprised by a tent that “leaks“, keep it dry and ventilated location, because the mold attacks without pity waterproofing resins and takes off the innersealing tape. Good sobretetos receive a treatment against the harmful effects of UV rays, to increase resistance to the Sun’s rays. Our tents have this protection,with a solution based on titanium dioxide applied on sobreteto, which greatly reduces the degradation of the fabric. The term “UV 50 +“ means that only one drive or less from UV rays can pass through the fabric. This is quite similar to the solar filters used on our skin, except for the fact that the chemical applied is more specific to tissues. Remember that even with this additional protection, the tissue degrades when exposed to the Sun’s rays. From 300 hours of sun exposure, it will show the first signs of it: the beginning of the fading and loss of waterproofing. So, don’t let your tent out in the Sun unnecessarily. Mount it in shady places and if you don’t have a way, cover it with an opaque plastic, fabric or even large leaves to increase your durability.
Setting up the tent
Learn how to set up your tent at home. Don’t let to mount it for the first time at camp, during the night, in the rain or wind. The process can become exhaustingand stressful if you’re a first-timer. Also, before you leave for camping, make sure it is complete, with the appropriate frames and cuttings (loaned to a friend? Check out after receiving it back. If you miss something even time to reset).
In General, most modern tents are easy to assemble, but make sure you learn towhat each piece before you leave home.
The sobreteto is responsible for creating a layer of air important for insulation, in addition to being a protection against rain. Therefore, the time to assemble the tent pay attention to the fact that the sobreteto can never be against the ceiling. The lateral stabilisers must be securely tightened and also that, in addition toprevent the tent balance under stronger winds.
To increase the life of your tent, keep it clean and dry, because moisture and dirtcan damage tissue and sealing the seams. No soaking: damp cloth remove most of the dirt. Scrubbing with solvents, soak or wash in machine might be the end of your tent.
As we have already said, the Sun’s rays are the major responsible for the degradation of the fabric. So, avoid leaving it up outdoors for a long time.
If your tent has already a long time of use, she probably does not have the samecapacity for moisture protection. Use waterproofing products to continue usingyour equipment when traveling.
A lateral or frontal advance is important to keep your stuff at night. If it is split with someone else, your tent can be a good invest in a tent with two doors, which leaves the two independent people and with a breakthrough for each store their equipment.
Never, under any circumstances, turn on a stove inside the tent. The material from which the tent is formed is highly flammable, and the fire consumes much of the available oxygen, i.e. a stove can cause death by asphyxiation, or severe burns. When you need lighting inside the tent, use flashlights or lanterns the stack, or a chemical light stick.
Always carry a roll of duct tape (duct tape). The tape can help you, and if you need a repair on the fabric or even the rods in an emergency.
And don’t forget: from time to time, it’s always good to mount your tent, to aerate and prevent that has a problem with moisture, which can end up causing problems of sealing loss, zipper grabbing or bad smell hard to remove.
