Do you want to wake up to the mesmerizing view of sun-kissed mountains overlooking a lake right when you unzip the tent door? All you need is a mug of coffee to complete this dream! There’s a reason backpackers never get bored with their passion; nature has so much to offer and in so many variations you simply can’t absorb it all. The same place looks so different at different times of the year. And when it isn’t the season playing games, it’s the weather that doesn’t remain calm. It is when you get off the beaten tracks that you discover the real beauty. But this doesn’t mean you go unprepared.

You’re never really sure where you’ll be camping for the night so it’s always handy to keep it on your shoulders. And while the contents of your backpack are a topic of another day, here’s everything you need to keep in mind when choosing a vintage canvas tent.
