Top tips for pitching

  1. Note how everything is packed together when you open the transport sack. This will help you when you come to repack it.
  2. When selecting your campsite, the ideal place would be an area as even and clean of rocks, branches and other sharp objects as possible.
  3. Avoid placing the tent directly under trees.
  4. ALWAYS have a trial run, putting up and taking down your new tent in order to know it before you use it for the first time AND to ensure nothing is missing.
  5. When erecting your tent, do not secure it too tightly, otherwise it will not be able to adapt to varying wind and weather conditions.
  6. If strong winds are expected, replace the normal tent pegs with storm pegs. For stony or hard ground stronger U-form pegs are recommended.
  7. Finally, check all guylines and pegging loops for equal tension. This will help reduce possible tension-damage and to ensure stable pitching.

NOTE: Do NOT use guylines to pull out the tent pegs, instead invest in a proper tent peg remover.
