Makers are incorporating heavier poles and new fabric to enhance the performance of new releases.
- Upgraded fabric: China-made all-season tents have flysheets made of polyester, nylon, oxford or canvas coated with up to 3,000mm PU coating. Ripstop variants are also adopted for better resistance against tear. The floor comes in PE or oxford with the same surface treatment.
- Thicker poles: For better performance against extreme weather conditions, tubes have thickness reaching 1.2mm and measure 8mm in diameter. These come in fiberglass, combination steel and fiberglass or aluminum, or even carbon fiber.
