UV eats most tent material pretty rapidly if used "long term". This goes for both nylon and canvas. Canvas will hold up better, but the delta could be measured in months and not years. Actual date ranges will depend on altitude, but I'm guessing you get about 1 month to 3 months out of a nylon tent before the UV eats it to the point of material failure through use or wind. Canvas might go as long as 5-7 months before similar failure.iWriteStuff wrote: ↑Wed Sep 10, 2014 10:40 amLong term usage. I've got an eight person two room nylon tent, but I've been told that ain't gonna cut it for long term (6 months to year) usage. I also have tarps aplenty, and find it much more economical (ie: cheaper) but if that's not going to be as good, well, maybe I'll just have to sacrifice a bit longer until I can find something better.
Nights in the mountains can be chilly even during the warmer months.Silver wrote: ↑Mon Apr 24, 2017 10:25 amThat's a great first post. I see you have a tent stove in there. From the picture, it doesn't look cold enough to require a stove, but I'm no expert on camping in the mountains. What brand stove do you use? How much does it weigh? How do you carry it to the camp site?
