Look for a tent with ventilation PANELS near the top and sides; these will allow air to flow through your tent more easily, creating a cooler environment inside.
Ensure your tent also has adequate INSULATION; this will help prevent heat from entering and keep the inside of your tent comfortable. Also, consider how much SPACE you need when picking out your tent.
Without electricity, a tent can be cooled by positioning the entrance away from the wind. The wind will create a natural draft that draws heat out of your tent.
Reflective surfaces will help direct the sun’s rays AWAY from the tent by reflecting them, while lighter colours, such as white or cream, are better at reflecting heat than dark colours, like black.
To maximise airflow, make sure that your tent is POSITIONED in an area with a good breeze and try to steer clear of areas with minimal wind or still air.
A battery-powered fan can also be a great way to keep your tent cool without electricity. They may require an initial investment, but they’re lightweight, portable and will provide relief from the heat.
