Tent Buyer’s Guide
There’s a lot of technical terms being thrown around in these reviews, so it may benefit you to brush up on some of the features to look for when purchasing the best tent for your needs. Here’s a quick breakdown of some terms you’ll often see and how they relate to your best tents experience.
Poles: The vast majority of good backpacking tents use aluminum poles, which are strong, light, and easy to replace. Fiberglass poles are found on inexpensive, light-duty tents; they’re cheaper, heavier, and less durable. Carbon Fiber poles are found on ultra-high-end tents; they’re super-light and super-strong, but not as durable as aluminum.
Doors: A tent with just one door is lighter than a two door tent, but causes people to crawl over each other to get in and out. Two doors really boost the comfort/livability factor of a tent, especially when each door is protected by its own vestibule, allowing each camper to have their own storage space.
Keep these terms in mind when comparing prices and features to find the Best Tents!
