How to Choose the Best Tent for you?

When choosing your Tent you should consider the following criteria. 

  • Size when packed
  • Size when open
  • Functionality
  • Price
  • Durability and strength
  • Weight
  • Pitching time
  • Season

Choosing a good backpack Tent can open up so many possibilities and save you hundreds of thousands of dollars on accommodation fees! 

This is hands down there best backpacking tent I have ever used! Yes it is pricey and there are a few cheaper options, but if you just want one good backpack tent then this is it, here why: 

Its Lightweight, so very easy to carry on your back for long journeys or expeditions.

Waterproof and Designed to withstand Stormy weather. – There is nothing worth then you tent getting flooded & all your belongings getting soaked! I have been in a few heavy storms in this on Yosemite and it stood up well, with no leaks! 

 

Its a comfortable size for two people, so plenty of breathing room! 

The only downside is I would say if you only plan on using it a couple of times and have a smaller budget then you may be better opting for a cheaper one on our list above. 

However, if you want just one good tent…this is it! My favourite part is it comes with a LIFETIME warranty which makes it a great investment.
