Jan 24, 2022


First, we classify Pomoly's tent by fabric.

Oxford Tent: Hex tent series, Manta tent series, Fort series. 
Cotton Tent: Yarn tent series, Peak tent series, Fort TC series.
Nylon Tent: Hussar tent series, Stovehut tent series, Chalet series.

Next, we know more about how to choose these tent fabrics from several aspects.

1. Wear-resistance

The wear resistance of the Oxford tent and cotton tent is great. Mild friction will not damage the Oxford tent and the cotton tent. The wear-resistance of nylon is weaker than these two fabrics. Nylon tents may wear when dragged on the ground.


2. Elastic Force

The elasticity of the Oxford tent is relatively hard and will not deform easily. The elasticity of the nylon tents is easier to stretch than that of Oxford tents. The reason is that the thickness of the nylon tent is relatively thin. The stretch of the cotton tent is the best among the three tents. So when you use a nylon tent for a long time, the tent may be at risk of deformation.

3. Tear-resistance

Oxford tent and cotton tent have good tear-resistance. Since both fabrics are thick, they will not be damaged under acceptable pulling. However, because the nylon fabric is thin, there is a risk of tearing. Please don't pull the nylon tent hard.

5. Condensation

Among the three kinds of fabrics, the most slight condensation phenomenon is the cotton tent, followed by the nylon tent, and Oxford fabric is the most serious condensation phenomenon. If the temperature inside and outside the tent changes significantly, it will inevitably lead to condensation. Maintaining ventilation can reduce this problem.

6. Comfort

Whether it is summer or winter, People feel most comfortable living in cotton tents. In winter, the Oxford tent is more comfortable than the nylon tent. Nylon is more comfortable than Oxford in summer.


7. Portability

The portability of the nylon tent is the best. Oxford tent is heavier than nylon tent. It takes more effort for people to carry Oxford tents. Cotton tents are the heaviest. In general, Oxford tent and cotton tent are suitable for car camping.

8. Warmth Function

Oxford tent keeps warm best in winter. Cotton also has an excellent warm performance. Nylon tents are generally warm. In order to sleep comfortably, it is best to use warm sleeping bags when camping in winter.


9. Maintenance

The maintenance of Oxford cloth and nylon tents is easy for people. You just need to wash the tent and dry it to store. The cotton tent needs to be cleaned and often dried in the sun to prevent mildew. And cotton tents need to be stored in a ventilated and dry place.


10. Service life

Oxford tents and cotton tents have a long service life. But cotton tent needs more time to maintain. There are many branches in the outdoor jungle. These branches may cut the nylon tent. Therefore, the service life of nylon tents is generally shorter than that of other tents.
