ROLLING VS. STUFFING – The jury continues to be out on which technique of packing up tents is greatest for longevity. Folding your tent into thirds and rolling it with the poles within the middle protects the poles and might be gentler on the tent material than cramming it into the bag. As you begin to roll, use your hand to comb away dust, 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 effective comfortable medium.
