Exploring the wild? Don't take the tent wrong

Tents are important equipment in the wild. Some tents are now increasingly innovative, not even needing to stand on the ground, but hang on trees. Tents are widely used by soldiers in history and over time are used for recreational purposes by civilians.

Tents generally have two coating principles for protection. The inner wall is made of breathable material or non-waterproof material and an outer wall or flysheet made of waterproof material. Both have different goals and functions.

A breathable material aimed at overcoming condensation generated by the user and some activities in the tent. Condensation occurs by the heat generated by the body or cooking activities in the tent. The inner wall made of non-waterproof material will allow the heat to come out.

Waterproof material for the outer wall is made to prevent rainwater and wind from entering the tent. This layer has a very tight structure and will not have pores or air holes. Some types of tents have both layers, but other types only have one layer and flysheet as an additional support.
