How to pitch your tent

A good night’s sleep in the outdoors starts with a well-pitched tent. Whether you use a dome tent or a tunnel tent, here is Carl Hård af Segerstad, Fjällräven’s event manager to show you how to pitch them the way we prefer to do it.

How to pitch a dome tent

Dome tents are self-supporting and less dependant on guylines and pegs. This makes them easy to move about until you find the perfect place and easier to pitch where tent pegs are difficult to use – on slickrock or sand, for example. Thanks to their dome-like shape, they are less sensitive to changing wind directions.

How to pitch a tunnel tent

Tunnel tents are not self-supporting and need to be secured to the ground to be pitched. They have more spacious vestibules which divide the tent into one sleeping area and one area for storing equipment or preparing food in bad weather conditions. When aligned correctly, tunnel tents are extremely wind resistant.
