How many people go to sleep in the tents for sale? Where will you let your material? Do we need to be comfortable for extended periods of time indoors?

It is critical (pre) set, or at least think about the number of people who want to sleep in the tent. Stores designed for 1-2 people are perfect for a person to sleep soundly with his material inside the tent. However, much confidence should exist between members if we want to expand to two residents in these stores (in which case, of course, all the material would be out). With this example I intend to emphasize that the stores designed for 1-2 (or 2-3) people, are usually calculated by: (i) If you sleep minimum ‘required’ I can do it very easily and even with all their material in and (ii) If sleeps maximum ‘allowed’ to do so very tight and with all the material out. Watch out that detail!

Many people enter backpacks loaded with the material in the store, to prevent drench with rain (or snow) or the wrecking animals looking for food inside. The problem this entails is that they have to get inside that place, and could well be the site occupied by another person. An easy solution would be to use the outside lobby to leave the bulkier material out, preventing getting wet in case of rain. In the event of backpacks, we could cover with the rain cover to avoid getting wet overnight. Also, enter the pack into a garbage bag (space and weight would need to carry the bag would be zero) could help keep it dry. And if the food could attract certain animals, would be enough to enter the store with us.

The primary recommendation when thinking about these factors is carefully looking at the measures and the shape of the floor and ceiling, to know clearly their capacity and the number of people who could live there (both lying and sitting). And of course, we should not are highly dependent on the manufacturer’s description when talking about the number of people.

As we use the tent for one night (sleep-mount-dismount) or extended periods of camping, we must value more or less capacity and habitability Store inside. Therefore, if the primary use we plan to give the store exits will be for a couple of days, which spend a single night in the open, we should not worry so much interior space. Oppositely, if our intention is to leave the shop for several days as a base camp for our excursions, we should think a little more comfort in our lives inside. Trips or extended stays involve most of the time to move a wide variety of equipment (clothing, bag, tent, food, stove, water, insulation mats), and all ever happened to us becomes our shop at times a veritable menagerie where to find something becomes an impossible mission. Imagine what would happen if the store we used to spend a week lost the amount was minuscule … To this, we must add that, in the mountain, the possibility of changes in the weather forecast is high. If one day we decided to return prematurely to our shop to wait for the next day, we should spend many hours inside, in addition to cooking, eating and move comfortably. In the latter cases, a store more space would be ideal. But what if we want a store for both cases? What to buy if we usually do short and long routes with the same frequency? In this case, I would go one step further, and try to answer the question: We usually go out when the weather forecast is appalling? If the answer is negative (for most people), the best option would be to sacrifice some interior space to gain weight and portability. No one is dying to spend locked in a tent however small day. Also, our rainwear allows us to go outside even if it is to stretch your legs and get some air. However, for taste, colors

Continuing the theme. Studied right height and general store. There are shops that narrow feet, gaining in lightness and packaging store, but losing interior space. There are also shops that lose height in the part of the leg, winning again in lightness, but losing again in comfort and interior space (nobody will be sitting at the back of the store!). There are shops that have two hallways, and this is a significant advantage to storing material outside without having to leave the open, it is quite common all our gear in the shop to enter it, and this will save a lot of complications organization both inside and outside (for example, using a hallway as a warehouse and another as a kitchen). Moreover, the fact of having two halls will be added to two access doors to the store, which is a huge advantage for a rapid and adequate ventilation inside the tent. There are also stores that have the lobby throughout the store (not on the front, like most). With this win quite widely in the dimensions of the hall, leaving room to store everything and even cook comfortably without getting wet in the rain. The problem is that if the warehouse has a single lobby, the person sleeping on the inside have to spend literally above the other to get out.

As you can see, there are so many possibilities and combinations that although little details are critical when to rule between the two or three models that we like. For more information, visit
