Triangular tent: the front and back use herringbone iron pipes as the support, the middle frame is connected by a cross bar, the inner tent is supported, and the outer tent can be installed. This is the most common tent style in the early days.
Dome-shaped tent (also known as yurt-style): It adopts double pole cross support, which is relatively easy to disassemble and assemble. It is the most popular style on the market.
Hexagonal tent: It adopts three-pole or four-pole cross support, and some adopts six-pole design, which pays attention to the stability of the tent. It is a common style of “mountain-type” tents.
Bottom-shaped tent: After being propped up, it looks like a boat turned back, and can be divided into two and three different support methods. Generally, the middle is the bedroom and the two ends are the hall tents. The design pays attention to the wind flow line, which is also common One of the tent styles.

What are the different structures and uses of different tents?
The structure of the tent includes: single room structure and hall canopy type. The space of the single-room structure is designed only for sleeping, with emphasis on reducing the volume and weight.
The tent of the hall-canopy structure is an outer hall with a canopy in addition to the sleeping space. In addition to being more advantageous in terms of wind and rain protection, it also provides space for existing equipment.
In order to adapt to different temperature environments, tents are divided into single-layer, double-layer, and three-layer structures.
What are the different uses of tents of different fabrics?
Materials can be divided into fabrics, linings, bottom materials, struts, etc. Generally speaking, fabrics with different labels have different densities, so the tensile strength and waterproof pressure are also different.
Camping and mountain climbing tents generally use light and thin polyester, nylon, and polyester-cotton breathable fabrics.
The advantage of polyester cotton is that it has good moisture absorption, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to mold;
The advantage of polyester and nylon is easy care.
Some inner tents are large-area mesh fabrics, which have the advantage of good ventilation, but the disadvantage is that the light is too transparent. In summer, only the inner tent is used, and the inside can be clearly seen from the outside.
