Many people asked me whether seam-seal the Lanshan tent with silicone glue is a must. My answer is that it depends on the situation. If you buy a non-PRO version, you don’t need to apply glue, because it has been taped in the factory and has the high-performance waterproof ability. If you buy the PRO version which is made by 2 side silicone coated Nylon, Congratulations, you will get a new skill!

This method works for any silicone ultralight tent. Not limited to Lanshan tent.

You can find something like a syringe in the package go from the Lanshan Pro, which is the best gluing tool for ordinary people we can find. Although it does not necessarily have the simplest operation, but the result must be the nicest looking.

 

This is a reliable glue. Although it doesn’t dry fast, it’s easy to buy. If you have a better choice, please tell us and we will recommend it to other hikers.

 

In this official instruction of glue, the way they apply glue is to use a small brush to smear the seam, which is also done by most people, but we do not recommend this method because it is very difficult to operate, in the end your beautiful tent will become like this:

believe it will ruin your good mood all day and curse our tent.

 

Our suggestion is to use the syringe we sent with the tent. The specific operation method is shown in the video below:

 

Sorry its chinese! but you will get the drift. English Version just below.

 

 

In English

First of all, you should set up the tent in your backyard. It must be full pitched and tighten.

After that, squeeze the glue into the syringe. According to experience, if your handicraft is good, half a tube of glue is enough. We don’t recommend applying a lot of glue, because it will increase the tent weight.

Before sealing, firstly is to make sure where need sealing. The positions that must be sealing marked with red, the optional sealing area marked with yellow, and the area that no need seam sealing showing as black. We do not recommend seal all seams, because that will increase the weight.

The operation can be carried out from top to bottom. Hold the syringe in one hand, the other hand hold waist for stability. Apply the glue evenly along the seam. In the black UHMWPE patch area, apply it with your fingers after coating to form a thin layer of glue. Remember wipe your finger with papers after that.

If you are a DIYer, it not a big thing! If not, this DIY experience will open up a new world for you.

 

After all seams are sealed, don’t hurry to package the tent. According to the performance of different glue, you need to let it dry for 1-12 hours.

 

In conclusion, If you feel that you are not good at DIY or a perfectionist, you can choose to seal only the red area, so that Lanshan Pro can also withstand in the storm.

 

Finally, if you have a better seam sealing method, please tell us to benefit more people.

Are you a camping aficionado? You’ve progressed beyond the need for traditional campsites and you want to go somewhere a little more – well, wild. There is no need to go overseas to find the most beautiful spots for wild camping. We have collected some of the best wild spaces to pitch your tent right here on our own green shores.

As long as you stick within the legal limits, wild camping is still fully achievable and the best way to get to know the stunning natural world.

Cwn Caseg Tarn in Snowdonia

Wales is a fantastic choice for a range of wild camping options. Offering some of the highest peaks in England and Wales, northern Snowdonia is a beautiful and less populated choice than other Welsh wild camping spots. You can expect gorgeous views of the coast from the peaks, but be prepared to make the tricky climb. You will be rewarded with stunning scenery and real nature though.

Isle of Mull on the Inner Hebrides

Wild camping is very accessible all over Scotland, but one of the most beautiful spots is the Isle of Mull. The Lochbuie Estate provides a tranquil space for campers, or choose the beautiful Calgary Bay, where you can gather your own driftwood to make fires on existing hearths. You will definitely need that on a chilly Scottish night!

Dartmoor National Park in Devon

No need to get a landowner’s permission when you choose Dartmoor. This sprawling national park is one of the very limited spots where it is legal to camp without asking permission, so you can feel secure as you enjoy the gorgeous Devonshire scenery. Brat Tor is an ideal place to camp on the windy moors, giving you amazing access to this nature lover’s paradise.

Wild camping offers so much opportunity to explore nature and employ your bushcraft skills. Just remember that you may need to ask permission from the landowner of any land you choose to pitch up on. Be respectful, polite, and leave no trace of your visit behind and there will be no limits to your potential camping adventures.
