Tents have been used as a means of habitation by nomads, recreational campers, and disaster victims. Tents are typically used as overhead shelter for festivals, weddings, backyard parties, and major corporate events.
Tents have traditionally been used by nomadic people all over the world, such as Native Americans, Mongolian and Tibetan Nomads, and the Bedouin. Tent fabric may be made of many materials including cotton (canvas), nylon, felt and polyester. Cotton absorbs water, so it can become very heavy when wet.Nylon and polyester are much lighter than cotton and do not absorb much water; with suitable coatings they can be made waterproof.
Many factors affect tent design, including:
The number and age of people who will be camping, determines how big and what features the sleeping area(s) must have.
Internal height. Manufacturers quote the maximum internal height, but the usable internal height may be a little lower, depending on the tent style.
Larger tents sometimes are partitioned into separate sleeping areas or rooms. A tent described as ‘viz-a-viz’, usually has two separate sleeping areas with a living area in between.
In some areas of certain countries, there may be restrictions as to what color tents can be, thereby reducing the visual impact of campsites. The best colors for low visibility are green, brown, or tans.
Some styles of camping and living outdoors entails quick setup of tents. As a general rule, the more robust the tent, the more time and effort needed to set up and dismantle, though specific design attention on quick setup. The style of the tent also has a great impact on its ease of use.
