How to judge the wind resistance of inflatable tents

When it comes to tents, we should not only consider the weight, but also the wind resistance. Every time I see a friend take a tent with a fish-back structure for a long walk at a high altitude, I will sweat for him. Pray for him to have good luck and not encounter bad weather. The tents with fish ridge structures for long-distance hiking at high altitudes are typical of sacrificing wind resistance to save weight.


There are many forms of tents, and people are dazzled. It is also a headache to distinguish which tent has the best wind resistance. The tent manufacturer will give you a detailed explanation of a few simple ways to judge whether the tent is windproof or not.


Classic alpine tent, it should be said that every snow mountain camp has its shadow


Through observation, it can be seen that this alpine tent has a large number of poles, many intersections of the poles, the poles are worn through the poles, the wind rope points are many, and the ground nail points are many. The above are the elements of a good wind-resistant tent. Although the alpine tent has good wind resistance, it is not suitable for conventional camping. We still have to find it in conventional tents.


The tent poles of the same shape are better against the wind than the hooks. Of course, the buckle type is easier to build, but the pole-through type is more wind-resistant. The pole-through type can use the strength of the tent fabric to assist in achieving stronger wind resistance, so the alpine tents are basically pole-through types.


This is a typical buckle tent, which is simpler to build and is the mainstream form of conventional tents.


This is a rod-through structure, which is more cumbersome to pass through, but this is an outer tent, and the actual construction is faster.


A tent with good wind resistance will not use a three-way structure on the pole. The use of the three-way structure can make the shape of the tent more changeable, and can also achieve a good balance between space and weight, but the stress characteristics of the three-way structure are destined to be the weak point of the whole set of tent poles. Tent structures are not used for tents with protruding points for wind resistance.


The fish ridge tent has insufficient wind resistance. This form of tent will be very light, but there are few supporting poles, three-way poles are used, and the side windward side is large, which is not enough to resist strong winds. This tent is suitable for conventional lines.


Many friends choose tents of this form because they are light, but they are used in harsh environments, which is very risky.


The wind resistance of the pyramid tent is very strong. Many friends are naturally worried about this kind of tent supported by trekking poles. They think that without poles, it will be very unstable if only supported by trekking poles. In fact, such worries are unreasonable. Wind resistance is very strong. The principle of this kind of tent is the principle of geometric triangle. The triangle is the most stable geometric structure. The three lines of the support tent, the tent fabric and the ground form a triangle. The vertical section of the pyramid tent is a triangle, so the tent with this structure is very stable.


However, in the end, we have to return to the problem of construction. Ground nails and wind ropes are the key to realizing the wind resistance of outdoor tents. Ground nails are like the foundation of a house. Only when the foundation is firm can the house be built stably. Therefore, when building a tent, the ground nails must be made to show the full shape of the tent and firmly fix the tent on the ground, so that the tent can be more resistant to wind. When choosing a tent, we should not only look at whether the weight is light enough, but also whether the wind resistance can meet the requirements. Don't sacrifice wind resistance for weight.
