1. Choose tents based on the most difficult and demanding conditions you may encounter. For example, although you do not plan to camp in the winter, if your outdoor activity is to be held in the late autumn, then you should choose a 4-season account or a convertible account.
2. The 4th quarter account is usually 10%-20% heavier than the 3rd quarter account (mainly due to the extra bills). The convertible account allows you to increase or decrease the poles and adjust the ventilation status according to the situation.
3. Self-supporting tents (without external support) are very easy to use. You can easily move its position or shake off the fallen leaves on the tent.
4. The capacity of the tent. Each manufacturer has its own capacity standard. The actual capacity is often smaller than the marked capacity. For example, a tent marked with a capacity of 2 people tends to be quite crowded after accommodating two large and strong adults and their equipment.
5. It is recommended to use tarps or ground cloths to extend the life of the tent bottom cloth.
