Are tents good in the rain?
Tents with two walls, an outer fly and inner fly, are best suited to the wet conditions. The outer fly is usually waterproof and the inner fly wall is not waterproof but breathable so allows for better air ventilation and less build-up of moisture and condensation inside the tent.
What happens if it rains while camping?
To be sure that your critical gear — your sleeping bag, a change of clothes, food, any electronics, and medical or emergency supplies — stays completely dry when camping in the rain, you need to pack everything into a waterproof bag or even better, multiple waterproof bags.
What shoes to wear camping in the rain?
Waterproof shoes, like hiking boots or rubber boots, are both must-haves while camping in the rain. Bonus points if you bring both, as I guarantee there’s a possibility that they’ll either get really muddy, or somehow still get wet. If you want to be extra careful, you can also bring gaiters to wear over your shoes.
