Quechua Tents Keep You Warm And Dry To Enjoy Your Camping Experience
If you are an avid outdoors type, you probably enjoy camping with family or friends. Spending time with nature and all it offers is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Getting away from everyday issues and especially getting children away from video and computer games, and spending time together can bring families closer together. Quechua tents offer a range of styles and sizes of warm, dry tents to accommodate most families.
If you have spent any time outdoors, you have no doubt seen your share of adverse weather conditions. If you plan to start doing outdoor activities, you are bound to experience unfavorable weather at some point. Mother Nature cannot be trusted. You need to be prepared for what she may throw your way.
Even though it may be warm and sunny where you live, your destination may be a beach, the desert, or the mountains. Conditions in these areas can and will change quickly. Wind on beaches, wind and cold in lower or higher elevations typically takes place in the afternoons, evenings and especially at night.
Rain or snow is another issue in higher elevations. No one in the group will enjoy themselves if they get and stay wet. Wetness leads to coldness and can create a bad experience, especially for children.
A good tent will provide a barrier against cold, wind and water. Even a small design flaw will allow cold or water to enter. Water, being the strange substance that it is, has a tendency to soak everything quickly. Quechua tents test their tents under extreme conditions in the lab and in the field to ensure they perform properly.
Technology has advanced to the point where materials used to make outdoor gear are both windproof and waterproof, water resistant or water repellant. Footwear, jackets, hats and gloves will keep water out while still allowing moisture to escape. The idea for these materials used on the body is to keep water out while forming pockets of warm air around body parts.
Tents made with polyesters are thin, lightweight and keep water out. Some tents have a double layer of polyester for extra protection. Poles and stakes that used to be wooden or metal are now fiberglass or carbon fiber. Groundsheets, or the bottom of the tent itself, and flysheets that cover the tent, have materials applied to create a waterproof barrier between the ground or from above and the tent itself.
Ease of use is something else to consider in a tent. Gone are the days of heavy canvas tents with wooden poles that took an hour to set up and take down. Tents now contain lightweight materials, some with poles built in, that pop-up to their full size very quickly with minimal effort. They can be ready to use quickly if weather is an issue.
If you are not sure of the size tent you need, get one that is larger than you think you need. Additional camping gear will take up the extra space at the least, and a larger tent will be more comfortable. Models vary in size and shape. Quechua tents even provide tents with multiple rooms for privacy or activities. Be sure to enjoy your time and experiences camping and stay warm and dry.
