With Summer camping season finally here, now is the time to air out your gear (if you haven't already!) and take any necessary steps to refresh and renew your tent before it sees action.

While our tents and hammocks are made to last, the wilderness can take its toll on your gear. Whether it requires a simple clean from last years dropped leaves, or minor repairs, it’s always best to check ahead of your first camping trip of the Summer when you have the space, equipment, and time to make the needed adjustments.

Make sure to check your accessories and components too. Safety related checks of load bearing items like your straps and ratchets should be made before every pitch, but even the smaller items like your sleeping bag, drinks holder, or ladder should be given the once over ahead to make sure they're still fit for all the adventures that lie ahead!

Reproofing Your Tentsile Tree Tent, Rainfly or Giant Hammock.
