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.

If you’re enjoying the great outdoors for an extended period of time, you’re going to need to think about cooking. Whether it’s just a long day’s hike or a week-long adventure in the wilderness, it’s essential to know the basics of outdoor cooking. These four top tips can help make sure you’re able to cook comfortably.

1. Keeping things cold

If you’re bringing ice with you, block ice lasts a great deal longer than ice cubes. If you don’t want to bring ice, however, you can still keep things cold while maximising your storage space. Consider freezing meat, cans of juice, or bottles of drink – they will act as a cooler without taking up unnecessary space in your pack.

2. Covering your cooking pot

If you’re going to be cooking in a pot, make sure you bring a pot with a lid. There are several benefits to this – the first is that food in a covered pot will cook quicker, so you won’t need to use so much fuel to heat it. The lid will also protect it from flies and insects, and prevent the smell from attracting animals from further afield.

3. Using charcoal to cook

Using charcoal is one of the best ways to cook outdoors because it provides an even and manageable heat which allows you to better ensure that your food is cooked all the way through. To prepare your charcoal faster, use a charcoal chimney to heat them before pouring them out into your designated cooking area to cook over.

4. After-meal cleaning hacks

Rubbing some liquid soap around the outside of your pots can prevent them from burning and leaving scorch marks. While you’re eating, put a pan of water to warm over your charcoals while they’re still hot. This will mean you have hot water ready when you need it. Make sure to bring bread for mopping up the very last of soups and stews – you don’t want anything going to waste.

With these four extra outdoor cooking tips, you will be able to enjoy a delicious meal whatever adventures you go on. To find the perfect cookware to bring, browse the Wood to Water range today.
