One can always expect some condensation systems in a tent in certain conditions. Some factors that often lead to condensation are high humidity and or lack of fresh atmosphere outside the tent. Inside the tent, it is better if we can control the moisture from our breath, the ground, and wet clothing from outdoor activities.
The effective method to limit the risk of taking so much condensation is to pick the materials make from high-quality. On the other hand, it should have some vent placements for individuals when using
A tent’s lifespan is directly based on the amount of time that you use it. A tent’s biggest enemy is UV radiation (just like your skin). A tent that lives in extreme conditions at high altitude, such as Everest Base Camp area, may only last a few months, while a well taken care of tent, used occasionally under normal conditions, can last for many years.
Try to avoid packing the tent when it is still wet or stocked with dirty things. Although we use the materials with high-quality and waterproofing available, prolonged exposure to moisture causes hydrolysis which, in turn, causes the waterproof layer to break down, becoming soft, sticky and no longer waterproof. Placing a humid tent for approximately 24 hours in warm weather will enhance the growing process of mildew on the fabric. Mildew will cause various issues for your tent including stain and break. Moreover, it will also lead to the premature breakdown of the waterproof coating.
For long-term using, keep your tent in a dry and cool area, out of direct sunlight. Store it outside of its stuff sack, as you would a sleeping bag, in a breathable, over-sized cotton or mesh duffel for protection. On the cheap, an old pillowcase is ideal.
Cleaning your tent is very necessary after using or spending in a long time. If heavily soiled, the pressure from a regular garden hose will remove most loose dirt. For more severe cleaning, set up your tent and hand wash it with warm water, a sponge and mild.
One thing to remember is that individuals should use the non-detergent soap. Do not use dishwashing liquid, detergent, bleach, pre-soaking solutions, or spot removers. Rinse well. Dry your tent by pitching it or line-drying it. Never dry clean, machine- wash or machine-dry your tent. Any of these methods can remove all the waterproof coatings from the tent.
- Weather Conditions: High humidity with low temperatures. It is suggested that people should not camping outside since rainy conditions create the most condensation.
- People: We release approximately 1 – 2 pints of moisture each night through breathing and skin evaporation.

You can do apply minor repairs in the field using one of several alternatives. We offer waterproof, self-adhesive patches (sold separately) for all of the fabrics and mesh on your tent. Seam sealants are also a good alternative for small holes, or use duct tape for minor, temporary field repairs.
If you use duct tape, remember to take it out as soon as you finish the camping vocation. The adhesive will eventually eat away at the fabric and you will end up needing a larger patch. We recommend carrying at least one of these as a precaution. If you have a large tear, our Product Service Center can also fix your tent after you return from your trip.
Absolutely; depending on the slope, we will find the most appropriate system to level out the ground.
Allow a minimum of eight feet around the perimeter of the tent for setup. For instance, when ordering a 20’x20’ tent, the area you need for installation is 28’x28’.
Other space factors to consider are overhead power lines, tree branches, eave lines, and other obstructions overhead that may prevent safe tent installation. Another site concern is underground lines (water, gas, phone and electric).
