Customer Review: Great canopy tent
The guys had no trouble setting up this canopy. We used it for an octoberfest BBQ contest. Having the option of putting the sides on in case of bad weather is great.
Customer Review: Tent
I have not yet put the tent together beacsue I only just received the missing parts & directions today. They were missing with the original delivery. The company did respond to my complaint of the problem rather quickly & did ship out the missing parts right away.

Different kinds of fibres are available now-a-days. These fibres are mainly divided into two categories natural and man made. They are also categorized by the generations as they were produced in the different years and known as first generation, second generation, third generation or fourth generation fibres.

History of man made fibres

The fibres generated first were the natural fibres. In this category cotton, wool, silk and all other animal and plant fibres are included. These fibres were introduced first 4000 years back but their uses were continued till 1940. All these fibres are known as first generation fibres. Very delicate handling is needed for these fibres. Fibres like silks and cottons have not good resistance against moths, wrinkles, wear and washings. So discovery of durable fibres was a greater need and about one century ago first synthesized fibres Rayon/Nylon were produced. These fibres are cheaper in comparison with natural ones. The development of these new fibres opened up fibre application to the various fields like medicine, aeronautics, home furnishing and modern apparels. Fibre engineers produced many new fibres by combining new synthetic fibres with the natural ones.

In the year 1664 the first attempt was done to make artificial fibre, but success was achieved after 200 years only. A Swiss chemist Audemars first patented artificial fibre in England in 1855. He produced that by dissolving the fibrous inner bark of the mulberry tree and produced cellulose by modifying it chemically. He made threads from the solution by dripping needle in the solution and then drawing them out. His attempt was good but he could not copy the silkworm. He had done experiments with the solution similar to Audemars solution.

French chemist Hilaire de Chardonnet was the first one to produce artificial silk commercially in the year 1889. Later on he was known as father of rayon industry because he was the first to produce rayon commercially on large scales.

All the attempts of producing artificial silk failed till the year 1900 but in the year 1910 Samuel Courtaulds and Co. Ltd, formed the American Viscose Company and did production of rayon.

Arthur D. Little of Boston made a film from acetate which is a cellulosic product in the year 1983 and in the year 1910 Henry Dreyfus and Camille made toilet articles and motion picture film from acetate in Switzerland. In the year 1924 Celanese Company made fibre from the acetate and it was the very first use of acetate in the textile industry. At that time the demand of rayon was high because it was available on the half of the price than raw silk to the textile manufacturers so U.S. rayon production flourished to meet those higher demands.

About Nylon

The miracle fibre called Nylon was invented in the September 1931 at the research laboratory of DuPont Company. They saw giant molecules of these polymers when they were working on Nylon '66' and Nylon '6'.

Nylon is completely synthetic fibre obtained from petrochemicals and is very different from Rayon and Acetate which are made up of cellulosic material of plants. The discovery of Nylon started a new era of manufactured fibres.

A change in life style

In the year 1939 commercial production of nylon was started by DuPont. In the very beginning on the experimental basis they used nylon in parachute fabric, in women's hosiery and in sewing thread. Nylon stockings were firstly visible to the public at the San Francisco Exposition in February 1939.

At the times of war, Asian silk was replaced by nylon in parachutes. The other uses of Nylon are in military supplies, ponchos, tyres, ropes, tents and in the high grade paper to make U.S. currency. At the time of war cotton was the most commonly used fibre and its uses were more then 80% than any other fibres. Another 20% is shared by wool and other manufactured fibres. August 1945 was the time of ending of war, at that time cotton shares 75% of the fibre market and rise of 15% was seen in the market of manufactured fibres.

Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes and Tunnels
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

Customer Review: Good Quality and Very Spacish
Very easy to put up and lots of room for a family. Highly recomended. Good quality for BURNING MAN also. You will not be disappointed, if you get it for $100 or less a great deal!
Customer Review: Easy set-up, nice and roomy
I purchased this tent to take my two daughters on an all girl camping trip. My 10 year old and I set it up at dusk quite easily. The first set up, with reading the instructions, took about 15-20 minutes. Once we set it up following the instructions, the instructions were not necessary for future set ups. There is plenty of room inside for four adults, two air mattresses, and gear. I would only put five people in this tent if three of them are children.

Tight vacation travel budgets due to limited financial resources already stretched to the max, sometimes threaten to rob us of well deserved vacations away from our hectic, demanding everyday life.

Here are 7 amazingly simple secrets to save vacation money and still enjoying terrific vacations:

1. Take a cruise or stay at an all-inclusive resort; the major costs such as meals, lodging, transportation and activities will be covered in one price.

2. Get several price quotations on the internet or compare quotations from at least 3 travel agents before purchasing airline tickets. Compare prices from different Airlines, airports and departure times. You can stumble on to savings as high as a few hundred dollars.

3. If you completed your vacation plans way in advance of the actual vacation, and purchased non-refundable tickets, most airlines will offer a credit voucher for the difference in fare if the fare goes down before your travel. Check with your travel agent or online travel site to confirm if the airline you are traveling with practices this policy, and if they do, follow up regularly to benefit reduction in airfares.

4. Choose hotels that include services in their rate that can reduce other areas of your budget. Such services may include meals, laundry service and special deals for kids.

5. Make hotel reservations as soon as you finalize your vacation travel plans to lock in the cheapest rates possible at maybe available for the dates of your scheduled stay. The cheapest rates are usually only available to just a few customers, so they will go quickly. The early bird catches the worm!

6. When comparing car rental rates offered by various companies you should consider the quality and value of the services being offered before making a decision:

-Shuttle service from and to the airport,

-Procedure for picking up and returning the car

-Daily business hours

-Types of vehicles available and their condition

-Availability of child safety seats

-Availability of emergency road assistance.

7. To get the best rates at a car rental, go for the weekly rate instead of the daily rate when possible, and reserve your choice of vehicle as far in advance as possible. Check with the car rental regularly before you travel to see if a better rate or special is being offered.

If you apply these secrets when planning your next vacation, not only will you be amazed at how much money you'll save, you'll also enjoy superior vacation quality and more value for your hard earned dollars.
