Invest in the right tent

Nature is unpredictable, so whatever the weather, you always need to be prepared. If you plan to camp during the rainy season, buy a quality tent with built-in vents.

The ventilation openings prevent condensation inside. If buying a new one is out of the question, you can have your old one checked again. Use a tent proofer spray to restore your tent’s water repellency.

A gazebo helps a lot if you are camping in wet weather. It protects you, your tent and your equipment from rain. So you can enjoy it outside of your tent without getting wet.

Resealable plastic bags are useful for storing clothes, toiletries, and other small items when you are outdoors. They are also waterproof and therefore ideal for the rainy season.

Don’t forget to store wet and dry items separately and make sure you have dry clothes to keep you warm in the tent. Seal food tightly to keep it fresh and prevent water from entering.

The equipment is ready, but also the right clothing and accessories for yourself – nobody wants to catch a cold and not be able to enjoy the outdoor trip.

Arm yourself with a waterproof jacket, pants and boots. Have insect repellent handy (many tend to come out in wet weather) and pack a microfiber cloth – they’re compact, absorbent, and dry quickly.
