Tips Using a Tent
Below are tips which can be used in conjunction with the 3F UL tent setup videos. These tips will not only make your life easier but prolong the life of your tent.
- Always use a ground sheet or tent footprint. This will not only protect your tent but also keep it clean. Furthermore it will help keep the tent dry making it quicker and easier to pack up.
- Dry your tent out as best you can before packing it away. This will reduce the weight of the tent while you are hiking as a wet tent can weigh up to twice as much as a dry tent.
- Pack your tent in your backpack where you can remove it ahead of your sleeping bag and other items needing to be kept dry.
- Ensure you clean the area from any sharp objects before putting down the groundsheet. 3F UL tents are tough but sharp objects can still pierce through. Cleaning the area well will also protect your mattress.
- As tempting as it maybe to try and get a perfect pitch of your Lanshan 1 pro or Lanshan2 pro be careful when tensioning the ropes. They are high quality tents however ultralight tents are not going to be as tough as their heavier counterparts.
- If you are using your tent on a sandy beach use branches instead of your tent pegs. Dig holes and bury the branches with the guy ropes tied. If possible tie your ropes to heavy rocks of large branches.
