When the heavens open and you want to dive into your brilliantly pitched tent think twice. It is likely your tent will have an inner bedroom area and separate porch area. Make sure you use the porch area to ‘depressurize’. Keep wet waterproofs, wet boots and wet rucksacks well away from the bedroom area.
If you’re in a family style tent with a porch, this will be invaluable for removing any soaking wet waterproofs and muddy wellies before heading inside.
Some tents come with gear lofts for you to dry clothes, although this can be easily improvised with a length of chord.
