Nylon Tents

Today, a vast majority of all cabin tents are made up of Nylon, which has many uses, positive aspects, and very few negative aspects. Some of these include strength: nylon, as compared to other materials is inherently stronger, due to the chemical composition and also the weave of the fabric. It is also abrasion resistant, meaning that it makes an excellent trail camping tent, as it can take the abuse that comes from bouncing around on someone’s back, or all terrain vehicle (ATV.)

When nylon becomes saturated with water, it is always quick to dry due partly to the fact that the fabric is quite thin, and also because of the polyurethane coating that a majority of all nylon cabin tents have. It is also extremely flexible, and is able to be folded down to a considerably smaller size than the ‘open size.’

There are only a few drawbacks to nylon cabin tents, if they aren’t built with proper ventilation, they can trap moisture and humidity inside them (nylon is the material used for hot air balloons, meaning they trap heat quite well.) Also, if nylon is left exposed to the sunlight for long periods of time, the fabric will degrade faster than it usually would.

Cabin Tents of today generally have a UV coating on them that helps the fabric to last longer, many of the pricier ones also have a new type of water proofing that is made out of silicone. This also helps to aid in UV protection. If you choose to purchase a nylon cabin tent it will no doubt be an investment that will last for many years to come, and will fill all of your camping needs.
