The fine art of venting

A functional tent-ventilation system needs to keep the elements out while letting in enough air both to battle condensation and to keep you comfortable. In all of our tents, double wall design is integral to that end. Our completely waterproof Kerlon fabric outer tents keep weather out, while our highly breathable yet water repellent inner tents let water vapor out but dont let condensed water back in. Beyond that, since a true all season tent must accommodate everything from warm, dry conditions to wet, cold and/or snowy ones, its venting system must be accordingly fl exible. A 3 season tent, on the other hand, needs to be able to handle both dry and wet weather in warmer temperatures.
