1.Winter camping tent

You should choose a winter camping tent. Almost tent can use in winter. But you also need to know why, and next time you can compare which one is more better!


When you camping in a winter night, the temperature will be drop very low. We recommend double layer tent which can keep warm more better than normal tent.

Double layer tent is more easier form airflow than single layer tent and airflow can take away vapour more faster. Vapour will let inner tent and outer tent stick together, and warmth will be lost. So that when you make a tent, there must be a space between inner tent and outer tent.


2.Winter Sleeping bag 

Prepared winter camping tent, then you need know how can sleeping well in winter night.

The first you need prepare a double layer Moisture-proof pad(foam pad + inflatable cushion is the best), chilly not only come from cold air, but also from underground.

The warmth effective will be become more different.

So foam pad in the bottom, then is inflatable cushion, sleeping bag in the top. It is the best combination for sleep in the winter night.
