Advantages and disadvantages: the dome design is applicable to a wide range, from low altitude to high mountains, and from single account to the size that can accommodate more than a dozen people for dinner and meeting; The support is simple, so the installation and disassembly are very fast; However, because its windward side is equal, its wind resistance performance is worse. Applicable occasions: most of them are suitable for leisure travel activities in parks, lakeside and other environments to avoid mosquitoes or light rain. Purchasing skills: when purchasing dome tents, it is recommended to choose dome tents with high comfort and less difficulty to build.

Hexagonal tent

Hexagonal tents are supported by three or four poles, and some adopt six pole design, which pays attention to the stability of the tent. It is a common style of "Alpine" tents. Advantages and disadvantages: hexagonal tent has the advantages of large space, good wind resistance and rain resistance, but it is relatively heavy and inconvenient to build.

Boat bottom tent
