Family Camping Tents: How To Buy One That Is Right For You

There are few pursuits that are more rewarding than leaving the stresses of normal life behind and setting out for the great outdoors. However, whether you are leaving to enjoy a week at a campsite or heading into the wild, the right equipment is vital and a sturdy camping tent should be top of your list.

There numerous factors which will determine which is the right camping tent for you. If you do not go camping regularly and conditions will not be too harsh, then something cheap and cheerful should be enough. On the other hand, if your camping tent will see a lot of use in different kinds of weather then it certainly is worth investing in good quality and the right design. There are few things more unpleasant than having your camping tent falling to pieces around you in the middle of a stormy night.

One of the first things you need to consider is how many people your camping tent needs to sleep. Tents can range in size from one-man, with just enough sleeping room for a single person, to large family tents with multiple rooms.

The second thing to think about is convenience, both in terms of the weight of the tent and how easy it is to put together. If you are hiking you will want something lightweight, certainly not weighing over five kilograms. One-man camping tents can be as light as 1.5kgs, though lighter camping tents usually cost more.

How easy your tent is to put together should also influence your decision. If you plan on setting up camp somewhere for a week or two, then this is not a major concern. On the other hand, if you need put up your camping tent every evening, maybe sometimes in harsh conditions, you will want something that you can assemble quickly. Many camping tents literally pop up in a matter of seconds, while cheaper models could take a good 15 minutes to assemble.

There are a number of different tent designs and some are better built for certain conditions and requirements than others. If you are an occasional camper this needn’t be a huge concern. However, if your tent will regularly be exposed to extreme weather conditions, design can make all the difference.

Geodesic – This is seen as the strongest of the tent designs. Intersecting tent poles provide it with excellent strength to withstand extreme weather conditions. This is the tent for the more adventurous outdoor expeditionist.

Dome – This is probably the most popular camping tent design. It is lightweight, is cheap, is easy to erect and offers great overall durability. A popular choice among backpackers.

Tunnel – Another common choice, though not quite as lightweight as the dome tent. However, it is a good deal more spacious.

Finally, it is essential that your tent’s fabric is made from high quality material. Lightweight nylon or polyester are the best fabric for the purpose, and, of course, they should be fully waterproof. Also, it is often a good idea to waterproof the seams of the camping tent yourself as a final safety measure.

Camp Tents- A Beginner’s Guide on Buying the Right One

When you talk of base camping you are going to camp on campgrounds that you no longer have to hike to be able to go there. This is the best place to spend quality time with your loved ones and kids since this is more convenient than camping to camp sites that are located in high mountains. They are too dangerous for the kids. However, going on this type of outdoor adventure would require camp tents. These tents will serve as your shelter for your entire stay on the site.

If you are a first time camper, you would really have a hard time looking for the right tent since there are so many camp tents that are out in the market nowadays. They come in different brands, types, features and prices. If you do not have enough understanding on this gear, finding the right one will definitely become a headache. Family tents come in so many types and sizes. They also have to be in time for the season. There are tents that are for summer, spring or winter. It will depend on the weather on when you are going to use them.

Normally, big families prefer to buy cabin tent since they are big enough to hold a standard family. Though it is a bit pricey compared to conventional types but you are guaranteed that everybody is comfortable inside. In fact they can hold from six to eight persons inside. So just try to imagine if there are 6 members in your family. The tent is big enough to hold everybody and you can still put some of your personal belongings inside. It is really hard to camp if your tent is too small for you. It would really be a nightmare for everyone when you sleep.

Camp tents are said to be the most important gears when you go on camping. It is important that you bring along the right type so you will be comfortable at night when you sleep. Though you can compare it to how your house could give comfort but as much as possible tents should help you relax after the long day of hiking and walking. Remember you are staying away from your home, even if you can not see your bed you would still wish to sleep on a comfortable place.

If there are kids with you, it is necessary that you make their stay as comfortable as possible. They are not used to this type of set up. But you would want them to experience another environment that would help them appreciate what nature has given them. So your camp tent must still give them the feeling of staying inside the house. Thus, cabin tent is the best type for your family to avoid getting crowded inside.

Camping is really a fun and great experience for the family and friends. However, you have to make sure that you bring the right tools, gears and gadgets to make your stay comfortable and convenient. If you fail to do this, the trip will definitely become the most terrible experience of your life.

William F. Gabriel gives practical tips on choosing the right camp tents and cabin tent.

The Ancient Art of Fly Fishing- Getting The Right Equipment

Distinctly different from any other method of angling, fly-fishing is a style angling that has a history dating back to ancient times. While some fisherman may use a rod and reel to sit back, relax and perhaps catch a fish; the fly fisherman wades into the water and uses his honed skills to lure the fish to bite. Fly fishing has several distinct characteristics that make it different from any other style of angling, the main being the technique and bait used, and the special fly fishing equipment the angler uses.

Fly-fishing has developed, as a standard, a variant rod and reel that works a bit differently than the traditional closed or open spool reels. Fly rods are light and flexible, and usually made of fiberglass or other composite materials. Fly rods are made to different lengths, so when you choose your fly fishing equipment, it’s best to know what species of fish you’re after. Traditionally the fly angler seeks to catch trout or salmon, but other species of fish have been known to be responsive to the fly angling method.

The fly rod has another unique feature, that is, the type of fishing line a fly rod uses is usually thicker than any other type of angling line. It’s the weight and thickness of the line, combined with the weight of the fly, that gives fly-fishing it’s unique casting techniques.

Although the fly rod is an important piece of fly fishing equipment, it’s the type, weight, and color of the artificial fly that affects the art of angling for the fly fisherman. Flies fall into three different categories, surface floating flies, partially submerged flies, and below surface flies, each having it’s own specific style of casting.

Fly fishing equipment can be expensive, but don’t worry, the fly rod is usually the most expensive purchase, the flies and fishing line are relatively inexpensive. Often, experienced fly fishers will eventually learn how to create their own flies to use. This gives your fly fishing experience a custom feel to it, and can cut down costs dramatically. If you’re a beginner, finding a mentor can be the best way to learn about and get the feel of each article of fly fishing equipment.

So, if you’re an outdoor enthusiast, a seasoned angler or just interested in learning about fly-fishing, try it out! Fly-fishing is a sort of ‘antique technique’, passed down from generation to generation. With the right knowledge and correct equipment, fly-fishing is a hobby that can last a lifetime.

Picking The Right Catfish Rod And Reels

Fishing for catfish has been the favorite of many anglers for years. They were one of the first species of fish to ever be caught as a sport. The catfish can grow to some amazing sizes and they will put up a fight that you will want to talk about for a long time. There is no better feeling than to reel in one or more of these monsters.

The rod and reel are extremely important when it comes to your gear and the amount of success you can have reeling in the catfish. There are certain steps you can follow when picking out the right combination of rod and reels. The first step is to decide which species of catfish you intend to go fishing for. Are you after the channel cat, flathead, blue cat, white cat or the bullhead catfish?

After deciding which species you prefer to catch, you need to learn as much as you can about the different types of rod and reels available. This will help you determine what would work the best for each type of fishing you are trying to do. Of course, if you are new to fishing all together and not sure which species you want to go after, then you should learn what type of catfish live in your immediate area or where you will be going fishing the most.

This way you can focus on buying a rod and reel to match the species of catfish in your area. Later on as you begin to advance your skills you will learn more about the different species of catfish and this will help you decide if you need to change or add to your gear to go fishing for another type of catfish.

Before you can choose the right catfish rod and reel it would be helpful to understand a little about the rod itself. No doubt you have heard much talk about the rod action and power of the rod from other anglers but, do you know what is meant by these terms? Below is a brief description explaining what is meant by the action and power of a fishing rod.

All about Rod and Reels

When you talk about the action of the rod you are talking about the amount of bend it has. The bend is most noticeable when you are casting your line or reeling in a fish.

Slow Action Rod – This rod will bend all the way down to the handle.
Moderate Action Rod – This one bends over the last portion of the rod.
Moderate-Fast Action Rod – These will bend just over the last third portion of the rod.
Fast Action Rod – The fast action rod bends in the last fourth part of the rod.
Extra-Fast Action Rod – This rod will only bend at the tip.

The bend affects the way you fish because the softer or slow action rods give more. In other words, they have more flexibility. These will hardly ever sling your bait from the hook but they will not cast as far as the fast action rods will. The fast action rods will cast further because they put more force behind your throw giving you a little added power.

Selecting the Right Sleeping Bag for Camping

When it comes to selecting the right sleeping bag for your camping needs where does one start? Since there are so many different sleeping bags to choose from, finding the right one for your needs seems daunting. These tips will help you sort through the pertinent information to make the selection process much easier.

Besides your budget, comfort is the main factor in selecting sleeping bags for tent camping (also known as car camping), while weight is the most important aspect for hiking (backpacking). This is what to consider when looking for sleeping bags.

Find the right temperature rating:

A sleeping bag’s temperature rating identifies the lowest temperature that will keep the average person warm. A bag described as a “20 degree bag,” means that most people should remain comfortable if the air temperature drops no lower than 20°F. These ratings factor in that the sleeper is wearing a layer of long underwear and using a sleeping pad with the bag. Temperature ratings vary from one manufacturer to the next. Use these ratings as a guide only.

What other factors affect how warm you are inside the sleeping bag?

The sleeping pad or air mattress adds warmth, since you’re not lying directly on the ground. Your tent also warms you up by approximately 10 degrees.

What you wear inside the sleeping bag also makes a difference. Sleeping in long underwear and clean socks will help insulate your body. A stocking cap will help you retain body heat as well.

The general rule on temperature ratings:

Summer Season bag has a temperature rating of +35 degrees and higher

3-Season Bag has a temperature rating of +10 to +35 degrees

Cold Weather Bag has a temperature rating of -10 to +10 degrees

Winter/Extreme Bag has a temperature rating of -10 degrees and lower

Most family tent sleeping bags are rectangular for maximum comfort. You can usually zip two together if they have compatible zippers and create a double bed. This configuration fits well on a queen size air mattress for maximum sleeping comfort.

The mummy-shaped bags are normally used for backpack camping. They are lightweight and more efficient at keeping the body warm. Some people find the mummy sleeping bag too constrictive.

Semi-rectangular bag is a good compromise between the rectangular and mummy shapes. This type of bag offers more room than a mummy bag and less bulk and weight than a rectangular bag.

Sleeping bags are available in three standard sizes: the junior (or child size), standard, and extra long. Although small children fit well in the junior bags, a standard sized bag will accommodate them as they grow without the need to buy a larger bag later on. It’s good to have some extra room at the bottom of the bag to allow you to put items you want to keep warm like clothes or water bottles if it’s freezing outside, as well as an extra blanket to keep your feet warm.

Insulation choices for sleeping bags include goose down and synthetic fibers. Goose down is mainly used to insulate top of the line mountaineering bags for extremely cold conditions, while the synthetic materials are just right for most camping conditions.
