ROLLING VS. STUFFING – The jury remains to be out on which technique of packing up tents is finest for longevity. Folding your tent into thirds and rolling it with the poles within the middle protects the poles and will be gentler on the tent cloth than cramming it into the bag. As you begin to roll, use your hand to comb away grime, sand, pine needles or any particles, as you proceed to roll.
Fastidiously stuffing your tent right into a stuff sack is another choice. It’s fast and simple to do that on the path (particularly when a tent is moist) and doesn’t put stress on the identical spots again and again like folding and rolling does. Switching forwards and backwards between these two strategies – stuffing on the path and rolling for storage after cleansing/drying – is an efficient pleased medium.
