Tent Buying Tips

| Comments

I learned a couple things about buying a tent last night.

  1. Don’t buy cheap, especially if you’re doing more than camping in your backyard. You will notice the quality difference once your tent flies away in the wind.
  2. Don’t buy a tent with a “fiberglass frame”. Despite the cost savings, why somebody would make a tent with fiberglass poles is beyond me. Hey…here’s a good idea, let’s put fiberglass into the one component of the tent that requires excessive handling during setup. </sarcasm>

I learned a couple other things too, but I can’t remember them now.
