ACTIVITY

BACKPACKING TENTS
Backpacking tents are similar to camping tents, but backpacking requires carrying everything you’ll need during your trek on your back, so saving weight is a major consideration. Manufacturers keep weight down on backpacking tents by utilizing materials like carbon fiber for tent poles and lightweight synthetic fabrics for the rest. These tents don’t often feature as many convenient accessories (like dozens of clips, covers, and pockets) as car camping tents, but they make up for it by keeping the weight as low as possible.

SEASONS

3 SEASON TENTS
For camping in the spring, summer, and fall, 3-season tents are generally all you’ll need. They usually feature a double-wall construction, meaning a tent body and a detachable, waterproof rainfly. Tent bodies are generally made with both lightweight fabric and mesh, offering both protection and ventilation, while the outer rainfly (in case of rain or light snow) is waterproof and detachable.

STRUCTURE TYPE

DOME TENTS
Many tents today are heavily influenced by the classic dome design, and each tent manufacturer has a unique take on it. For tents, dome designs provide a practical blend of strength, space, and simplicity.

SLEEPING CAPACITY

Figuring out what size tent you should get can be just as confusing (if not even more so), than figuring out the type of tent you need. Whether you’re looking for an extra cozy, ultra light one person tent for yourself, or a roomy cabin tent that can fit your entire family, the sleeping capacity on tents can be deceiving.

One person tents are pretty self explanatory, but depending on your size and the amount of gear you’re bringing, a two person tent might be a better fit. Most two person tents have enough room to fit two very snug, cuddly people, but can work better as a one person tent with extra room. I prefer to have extra room in my tents so I usually go with a two person capacity tent instead of a one person.

If you prefer roomier tents just remember to add an extra person to your capacity. For example, if two people are going camping consider looking at a three person tent for a little bit of extra space. If you’re a larger person be sure to look at the floor dimensions and height measurements of your tent as well, some tents aren’t long enough for those of us that are over or around the 6 foot tall mark.

WALLS

DOUBLE WALL
For the majority of outdoor adventures, a classic double walled tent is perfect. Double walled tents have a mesh interior wall with a waterproof fly that keeps out the weather without sacrificing breathability. Though double walled tents usually require a little bit more work to set up, their versatile design is perfect for a wide range of conditions. If the weather is hot you can position the fly for increased airflow, if it starts raining that same fly can be used to keep you and your gear dry.

MATERIALS

When looking at tents and more specifically their construction, you’ll start to see the word denier come up a lot. Denier is a fabric measurement that lets you know how durable or lightweight a fabric is. Most ultralight weight tents use a less durable, low denier fabric that cuts down on weight, while most camping tents use a burly high denier fabric. The higher the denier, the heavier and more durable your tent will be.

CONSIDERATIONS

DOORS
Doors are an important thing to take into consideration. While the amount of doors that your tent has doesn’t really matter if you’re only one person, they can make a world of difference if multiple people are sleeping in the tent. Additional doors add weight to the overall tent, but having multiple exit options means that you won’t have to crawl over anyone if you’re the first person up in the morning.
POLES
The way that a tent’s poles are structured can make a big difference for how hard or easy it is to set up your tent. Most family or car camping tents are freestanding; this means that you don’t need stakes to set up the tent. Freestanding tents are also easy to move around if you change your mind and want to move to a smoother location. All you have to do is pick it up and move it. The fewer poles that your tent has, the faster you’ll be able to set up. Carbon fiber and aluminum poles are stronger than fiberglass poles, but they also tend to be more expensive.
VESTIBULES & STORAGE
Most tents have an area outside the tent that’s still covered by the tent’s fly, this area is called the vestibule and is great for storing excess gear or dirty shoes. To reduce weight, a lot of ultra light and mountaineering specific tents don’t include vestibules, but for car camping vestibules offer a great way to store your pack or put on your boots without getting dirt in the tent.
VENTILATION
Most tents have an area outside the tent that’s still covered by the tent’s fly, this area is called the vestibule and is great for storing excess gear or dirty shoes. To reduce weight, a lot of ultra light and mountaineering specific tents don’t include vestibules, but for car camping vestibules offer a great way to store your pack or put on your boots without getting dirt in the tent.
