Tent Packing: Stuff, Roll, Or Fold?
Tackling the age-old question should you stuff or fold your tent?
At the end of every outdoor adventure, you're confronted with an inscrutable dilemma: Do you stuff, roll, or fold your tent into its stuffsack? Poll your fellow hikers and you'll see everyone has a technique and a reason for why theirs is the best. Challenge them, and you might get a tent pole in the eye.
How do you pack your Tent: Stuff, Roll, Or Fold? and My question is do you pack up your Tent if Rolled up with Tent Poles rolled up inside your Tent?
I have always folded then Rolled up my Tent since 1998 with my Tent Poles inside my Tent. and I have noticed After Time when I put my Tent Poles inside folded then Rolled up my Tent.
and Since 11-2008 I have used Eureka backcountry 1 person Tent, REI Co-Op Passage 1 man Tent, Catoma Combat 1 man Tent then I put my Tent Poles inside folded then Rolled up my Tent
after time I noticed pin holes, small cut that looked like from Tent Poles on the Tent body floor. and for my Bicycle Touring/Stealth Bicycle Camping Trips I have 2 Two man Tent in my Storage Unit with my Tent Poles inside folded then Rolled up my Tent: "Marmot Tungsten 2 man Tent in Shadow Green/Moss Green and Nemo Galaxi 2p Tent I am going to remove the Tent Poles from inside both 2 man Tent's" and since 9-2017 I have been using the Kelty TraiLogic TN2 Tent in the morning I have folded then Rolled up my Tent packed in the cube with Tent Poles between the Tent Body and Tent Fly then I have noticed pin holes, small cut that looked like from Tent Poles on the Tent body floor. and I am going to keep my Tent Poles/Tent Stakes away from my Tent when I am packing up my Tent in the morning.
