3. Take your poles out of the bag and assemble them. With modern tents, most poles are colour coded. Top tip: remember, in high winds, the lightweight pole bags can go flying so always find somewhere to stash the bag once you’ve taken the poles out.
4. Find the pole sleeves on your tent, then start threading through. Always start with main poles on the tent before the porch. Top tip: sleeves are sometimes colour-coded to match the poles, so be sure to check you are threading it through the correct sleeve before committing. Also, you should always push poles through the sleeves – do not pull them!
