Season tents: usually lighter, generally used in milder climates in spring, summer and autumn. 3 Season accounts can usually perform well in wind and rain, but the design features also make it difficult for them to cope with excessive snowfall. If a three-season account can barely support 2 inches of snow on it, when the snow falls to 20 inches, you must be in trouble. The three-season account also has a special feature. It has a certain ventilation design. In order to meet different needs, it is generally designed as a double-layer tent. It is divided into internal and external accounts. The internal account has the internal account of the full card screen, and the internal account of the half card screen. Some internal and external accounts can also be used separately, thus meeting the different needs of spring, summer and autumn.
Season Accounts: A more robust 4 season account usually adds 1 to 2 support bars to allow the support system to withstand stronger winds or thicker snow layers. The shape of the winter account is usually designed to be a rounded dome shape to minimize the flatness of the top of the ledger and prevent snow accumulation. Of course, these winter/alpine accounts are also suitable for relatively mild weather conditions. It’s just that the extra weight of the support rods makes them heavier than the three seasons.
The convertible account is a four season account that can be adjusted to a three-season account. The method of adjustment is usually to remove 1 to 2 support rods from the support system of the tent, and to provide detachable ventilation parts in the design, which can be removed or opened in mild weather to enhance ventilation.
