The materials of outdoor camping tents can be divided into fabrics, linings, bottom materials and poles.

1. Fabric

Compared with different fabrics, nylon silk is thin and light, suitable for mountaineering and trekking campers. Oxford cloth is thick but heavier, suitable for making tents for driving camping or small groups. From the perspective of waterproof coating, although PVC is good for waterproofing, it will harden and become brittle in winter, and it is easy to crease or break. PU coating can not only overcome the shortcomings of PVC, but also waterproof. With multiple-coated PU, the waterproof pressure can reach more than 2000mm.

2. Lining

The lining (inner tent material) is usually made of cotton-style nylon silk with good air permeability. From the perspective of use, nylon silk has better performance than cotton. When camping outside, the tent is easy to absorb moisture, cotton cloth is not easy to mold in the sun, and nylon silk is easy to dry and not easy to mold.

3. Bottom material

The main function of the tent bottom is waterproof, moisture-proof and dust-proof. The choice of bottom material also determines the grade of the tent. Low-end tents are usually made of PE

The base material, and some use PVC, is for low cost, double-sided laminated PE, although it is waterproof and moisture-proof, but easy to wear and leak, it is the nemesis of PVC base material in winter, and PU coated Oxford cloth The base material, whether it is robustness, cold resistance, or water resistance, greatly exceeds PE.

4. Struts

The poles of the tent are the skeleton of the tent. The quality of the frame material not only affects the life of the tent, but also affects the stability of the tent. Early tent poles often used reinforced materials, which not only increased the weight of the tent, but also had poor resilience. The improved tent frame uses glass fiber brace, its weight has been reduced, the resilience of has been improved, and the cost is lower. Therefore, current tent manufacturers mostly use such materials as brace, but fiberglass brace The strength and sturdiness are not ideal. If the brace is thickened to increase the strength, it also increases the weight. The ideal struts are aluminum alloy materials. The struts connected with high-strength alloy tubes have high strength, light weight and good resilience. Especially the EASTON struts made of Yuhang aluminum have various indicators. They are all in excellent condition, so they are mostly used for high-end tents.
