Backpacking and hiking tents are available in a wide range of different designs, starting from minimalist, small, medium and even mansion type. Tents should be bought according to the capacity you can carry along. This depends on how long your outdoor stay is going to be. Apart from that the season in which you are planning to go and the climate conditions. Moreover, you also need to decide on the interior living space according to how many people are going. Easy assembling and de-assembling, accessibility, and weight of the camping tents are some of the other things which are needed to be considered.
Single and double walled tents are one of the important pre-requisites to decide on purchasing a tent. Here, the first wall would be the body of the tent, while second wall is the cover over it to protect from rain, storm, dust, and snow. Many brands like Kumaka, HSR, IBS, UltraTarp, and Urbancart provide greater accessibility which give you the option to camp at any site. Some of them have double wall protection with a mesh paneled body so that there is proper ventilation. Whereas, others have custom-made pockets, multiple doors, which offer a great camping experience.
• Family Tents are usually categorized according to the space they hold inside them. Some ultra-light tents can be more compact, however, it varies from brand to brand. So, if you are a group of 4-5 persons and you need a little more space than require, look for a slightly bigger than a tent for that category.
• Seasonality is another important consideration while frequent hikers and campers look for. Unexpected weather changes can happen at any time, so its’ better to purchase a three-season tent. These contain lesser poles and the fabric material is usually lighter. Moreover, tube tents can withstand a little rain and dust storm too.
• Interior space is the hardest thing to measure. Instead of the vestibule space, wall geometry is a better criterion to measure the living space in family tents. You should have enough space to stash your bags and other things. The height of the peak is another thing which determines the living space. However, where the peak is located – is a better criterion.
• Mountaineering and tube tents are specially for the areas which can stand heavy windstorms and snow. While ultralight shelter tents are for camping under regular climate. Some tents also come with a mosquito netting over the rain fly, which work as both the ventilator and protection from mosquitoes and other insects.
