One of the oldest past times in history is to go camping, to experience the outdoors in all its glory, kickback and be at one with nature.
The foundation of this activity is based off the use of a tent. A traditionally Nylon structure was used since 1935, to keep us sheltered and protected from the elements. However as time passed by and the invention of Polyester came around, we began to create more weatherproof and resistant tents.
This enabled us to camp further afield, for longer durations and with more comfort. Fast-forward to today and in 2018 we have hundreds of thousands of different tents available on the market. Each with their own features and design styles, ranging from traditional pole tents to tents that fill with air to set up, to coiled spring tents that explode open in the blink of an eye.
Camping has become a luxury activity in many cases, given the vast array of convenience gear on the market, which was specifically designed to make your camping trip easier. Glamping was inevitably born, an exorbitant method of camping that can rival staying in a 4-5 star hotel, however you are still out on the road ‘roughing’ it as we say. Employing the use of roof racks upon their jeeps, roof top tents were made as a means to journey long distances, but being able to camp along the way.
Traditional camping is just as popular as ever, especially as a family activity. With the creation of instant tents that have pre-attached frames or the pop up tents that spring to life and can be pitched within 60 seconds. Many of the former issues that put people off camping with the kids have all disappeared. It’s much more convenient than before and is still a top activity to do as a family for a bit of bonding and to escape the gadgets and technology that are plaguing our young generation.
With such wide variety on the market in the outdoor area, it’s apparent that people feel a bit lost and unsure on which brand or model to go with. Often falling into the advertising trap and left disappointed with what they’ve chosen, trust is lost and it’s difficult to recover from that as a customer.
Review sites are made to help people get a deeper insight into what they are buying, before they buy it. Showing any negatives, weaknesses in a particular item, some videos showing performance and a general going over. Most review sites are pretty thin when it comes to detail, usually reiterating what has been mentioned elsewhere.
But here at The Tent Hub, we have tried to provide the most in-depth articles and guides out there, usually reaching over 10,000 words per article as opposed to the usual 2000-3000. We wanted to include a thorough buyers guide and frequently asked questions section on each article.
Thus hopefully providing some value to the reader. Perhaps learning a new cool tip on how to pitch more efficiently, or how to reinforce your canopy correctly for the oncoming winter period, or how to pitch a camping tarp for the old school camper among us, the list goes on.
The camping community has historically been a supportive group of like-minded folk, who don’t mind digging in and helping out their fellow man (or woman, let’s keep it PC), so we intend to carry the torch and this concept into the online world.
