The camping tent set includes a breathable inner layer and a waterproof outer layer, poles and pegs. The double-layer design can reduce the accumulation of water vapor inside the tent and keep inside dry. The waterproof outer layer passed a shower tested under 2000 mm of water / hour / sqm (tropical rain) & field tests.

Pay attention to the following points when choosing sleeping bags,
Height vs Sleeping bag length

Environmental temperature vs. Comfort temperature
The sleeping bag is marked with "comfort temperature". It is wise that to choose sleeping bag according to the weather. Note that the temperature in the campsite used to be lower than in the urban area, you may need to choose a sleeping bag with lower comfort temperature.

Foam - The lightest, easy to set up, easy to store; the one disadvantage is the large packed size. Usually tied outside backpack when carrying.
