Don’t want the hassle of a big tent set up or campsite registration? A luxury pop-up tent is the answer.
Just as the name suggests, a pop-up tent pops up into a certain shape when you unfold it. It’s that simple.
All you have to do is take it out from the tent bag and unfold it wherever you want. This way, you save a lot of time from the chaos of setting up a typical large tent and can spend more time having fun!
Nothing beats the maneuverability of a luxury pop-up tent. It takes about 10 seconds or less to set up and once set up it can be moved around easily due to its lighter weight.
Luxury pop-up tents are available in all shapes – the most typical being the distinctive hexagon shape.
Also, these tents are available in different sizes – for kids, couples, families, and any other type of social group.
Most pop-up tents are made of lightweight polyester and they are made to be waterproof while providing UV protection to a certain extent.
Below, we've included all you need to consider about these types of glamping tents.
Size of luxury pop-up tents
This is obviously one of the first things to consider before buying a pop-up tent. Whether you are camping solo or in groups, most pop-up tents are large enough to accommodate up to four people. So, finding the right size will never be a problem.
Pop-up tents are waterproof
One thing you need to remember is – don’t just buy whatever you see! Most tents advertised as waterproof aren’t waterproof completely. Rather, they are known to be water-resistant.
So, you need to do your research right when it comes to testing and finding out if they are actually waterproof! If you are buying a pop-up tent online, you can always check the user reviews for confirmation of quality.
If you are choosing to buy a popup tent to use at an event or on the beach, you probably won’t need this feature. In such cases, you can opt-out for the water-resistant type of tent and save a bit of cash!
Guylines and stake for pop-up tents
These are must-have features if you are taking your pop-up tents for camping, road trips, or any other type of longer stay.
Tent stakes and guylines help you build a sturdier tent and secure it against wind or heavy rain, which are pretty common weather conditions in the UK.
Just as all things come with a price, there are certain drawbacks to a luxury pop-up tent as well. Due to their lightweight and portability, popup tents are not meant for heavy-duty use. It is best not to use these tents in areas with heavy rainfall or strong wind.
Also, it is advised to secure the tents with weights or by tying it down. This way, you’ll be able to withstand windy or rainy days up to some extent.
Nevertheless, there is nothing that aces in portability and ease of setup like a luxury pop-up tent!
