What should I look for when buying a tent?

The Great Outdoors

Hiking trips can also include spending a few nights in the great outdoors. That's why you should invest in quality outdoor hiking and camping gear. When buying a tent, for example, there are a few things to keep in mind. Search for tents with strong fiberglass or aluminum-alloy poles. If you purchase a single-wall tent (for one or two people) then make sure that the fabric used is a waterproof and breathable laminate that offers enough protection. Double-wall tents should have a breathable inner fabric and a waterproof outer shell. Your comfort and safety should be a top priority.
