Tent is essential when camping. But just setting up a tent is not enough. Various problems may occur, such as water soaking in when it rains, and insect infestations. The inner tent plays an important role in solving that problem, it is great on their own for staying breezy and bug-free outside, and can be set up with floorless tents or tarps to complete a solid camping shelter that shields you from the sun, rain and wind while offering great ventilation.


How to choose an inner tent

When choosing an inner tent, it is important to consider the following points.

Type: There are two types of inner tents: hanging type and sleeve type.

Hanging type

For the hanging inner tent, the poles are assembled first, and the hooks of the inner tent are set up on the poles. Easy to assemble and dismantle, recommended for beginners! However, if the hook comes off, the inner tent will collapse, so be careful!

Sleeve type

The sleeve type is set up by passing the pole through the sleeve of the tent. It is characterized by even load distribution and high strength. In addition, the inner tent and poles are not separated like the hanging type, so it is strong against wind. However, when withdrawn, the connection part of the pole comes off inside the sleeve, making it difficult to remove from the sleeve, and it may take time to withdraw.

Intended use: The inner tent is used for outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and climbing. Depending on the purpose of use, you should choose the required size, material, weight, etc.

Materials: Materials for the inner tent include mesh, nylon, cotton and polyester. Choosing the right kind of inner tent can make your outdoor experience comfortable.

● Mesh inner tent: Made of breathable mesh fabric to improve ventilation and prevent insects from entering. Typically used in hot climates.

● Nylon Inner Tent: Made of lightweight and durable nylon fabric, often used in cold climates.

● Cotton inner tent: Made of breathable cotton fabric, it is often used in warm and humid climates. Cotton fabric is highly breathable and can provide a comfortable sleep.

● Polyester Inner Tent: Made of lightweight, durable polyester fabric, often used in warmer climates.

Weight: When it comes to outdoor activities, the weight of your luggage is an important consideration. The weight of the inner tent affects portability. Choosing something that is lightweight and not bulky will make it easier to carry around.
