The Pop Up Tent – Taking Camping to Another Level
If you’re the kind of person who absolutely loves camping & spending your recreational time in the beautiful, spacious outdoors, than you know how important it is to have a quality, portable, & light-weight tent to sleep in. Gone are the days when the only shelter available was the traditional bulky canvas type often comprised of a weighty wooden framework, unwieldy canvas skin, ropes, & spikes.
Welcome to modern innovation – the pop up tent. This type of collapsible unit is trendy, reliable, compact, & small enough to be hoisted on the camper’s back, yet light enough so that it can be backpacked for long periods of time without it becoming burdensome. Once the camper has found a suitable site to pitch the tent, all he needs to do is manipulate the collapsed pop up tent until the framework snaps into place.
Whether the camping experience is new to you or you’re a veteran pro, there is a vast selection of tents available to encompass all budgets, requirements, & practical features to meet all your needs and more: from 2 man & 4 man pop up tents, to family & group size. Pop up units are generally fitted with a waterproof polyethylene flysheet & groundsheet, zippered flap with lattice ventilation, & air vents to reduce condensation & airing purposes.
Additionally, pop up tent trailers & campers are other options to consider if you’re looking for a larger shelter that can be attached to a car or minivan. Pop up tent trailers are extremely lightweight, contain folding panels and/or extensions that offer extra space when the unit is parked, & can easily be disconnected from the car, allowing the family to use the vehicle for sightseeing and other purposes while leaving the tent trailer set up. Tent campers are more sophisticated & larger; often providing beds, furniture, a stove, etc., & have a more structured frame than the other types of pop up trailers & tents.
Perhaps you require a simple family tent that provides plenty of breathing space for the children, or you’re looking for a compact hi-tech tent with specialized features to provide top performance, or maybe you simply want to stick out from the masses with a fashionable, hip shelters during those summer galas. Whatever one you desire & whatever needs you have, be sure that the one you choose will totally fulfill your requirements & set you a step above the average Joe.
