You might be worried the seams are leaking but in many cases, we've found water in the inner side of your tent is caused by condensation. When you're camping, there are three main sources of condensation in tents:
- Weather conditions: High humidity, low temperatures and rain (even if minimal)
- People: Our bodies are always perspiring and the average person eliminates 1 litre of water per day through respiration (breathing) and transpiration (sweating)
- Wet environment: Wet or damp gear stored inside your tent No tent design can eliminate condensation completely but it can be minimised through ventilation. Most tents have vents, doors and windows that can be used to for ventilation to minimise condensation. Any wind or even a light breeze can be harnessed to assist in moving air through vents and windows to help control condensation.
