Sports And Camping Tents To Keep Warm And Dry

If you’re planning on a trip to a colder climate to do some camping you’re going to want to buy a tent for your cold camping nights that will keep you warm and dry. When you camp in colder climates you’ll need to have tents that can withstand the harsher climate of the north. When you’re choosing what type of a tent to buy there are certain criteria that you’ll need to base your decision on. Some of the things that you’ll need to consider are how many people will be using the tent, will you be using the tent just for sleeping or for sleeping and cooking, what time of the year that you’re going to be traveling, and how long you’ll be staying on your camping trip. Once you have the answers to these questions you can narrow down your search for the right tent for you.

There are two different types of tents that you can choose from: tents that supported by poles and tents that are considered to be free standing. Tents that are supported by poles will also need to have ropes on the outside of the tent that harness the tent to the pegs set into the ground to help support the poles. If you’re traveling to the Arctic to do some camping you might want to choose a pole tent such as the Labrador tents, which are durable and reliable in the northern climate. Tents that are considered to be free standing have a frame that is sturdier than pole tents. Even though these tents are completely free standing you might find that winds in a northern climate cause it to shake and bend.

One thing that you should keep in mind when you’re camping in colder climates is that there may often not be ground available to drive the stakes of the tent into, since there will be a lot of rock, or frozen ground. If you have to pitch your tent on rock try to find a surface that is relatively level and near some smaller rocks. This way you can tie tent lines to the rocks and still have a sturdy tent.
