How to Choose a Camping Tent - Buying Guide

As you look for a tent for your next trip, you should think about how many people you plan to bring, the shapes available, and the weather you may face.

Look For a Size for the Number of Occupants

Look For a Size for the Number of Occupants

The first thing to consider is how many people will need to fit in the tent. Most tents indicate whether they're made for one, two, three, or more people, which is a good starting point. However, if you're taller than average, tend to toss and turn at night, or need extra room for kids or dogs, it's helpful to look at the listed dimensions.


Products will list the length and width of the tent, which will indicate how much sleeping space you'll have. Generally, a space that's 25 inches wide by 80 inches long will be an adequate sleeping space for one person. Don't forget to leave extra room around the perimeter; you don't want to sleep right up against the walls of the tent.


In addition to the length and width, products will also list the peak height, which is the measurement at the tallest point of the tent. This will give you an idea of how much headroom the tent has. Some tents allow enough room to stand, while others are made mostly for sleeping so you'll need to get around on your hands and knees.

Alec Sills-Trausch

The first step in the tent buying process is figuring out how many people will be sleeping in your tent. If it's just you, a single or two-person tent is great. This allows you to have your bag in the tent with you


For two people, a two-person or two-person tent is perfect. If you're looking at a family, going with a four- to five-person tent is best as it will provide space for everyone without feeling too cramped.

Select a Shape With Enough Space for Your Needs

Different tent shapes can affect a tent's durability, comfort, and occupancy. Here's what you should know about each type.

Dome-Shaped Tents for Small Groups or Snow

Dome-Shaped Tents for Small Groups or Snow

Dome-shaped tents have flexible poles that intersect at the top, then bend down and are anchored on the floor to create a rounded shape. Some include an additional pole at the entrance to create a porch area. 


The high ceiling and curved walls give ample headroom inside, making these a good option for families or groups. The dome shape also deflects rain and snow, helping to prevent sagging. 

Alec Sills-Trausch

Alec Sills-Trausch

These have high durability and proves enough space for large parties and groups. A tent like this won't be used for backpacking or car camping but is usually set up year-round for people to stay in during a short visit.

A-Shaped Tents for 1 or 2 People

A-Shaped Tents for 1 or 2 People

Traditional tents come in the shape of an A and are also called ridge tents. Their pointed top makes them a good choice in rainy weather. However, the steep sides and lack of headroom mean there's limited living space inside, so these types of tents are best for just one or two people.


These tents work great for the beach since water could splash on it. This means you don't have to worry about water getting caught on top of your tent if it starts to rain, or you get water on your tent.

Alec Sills-Trausch
Photographer/Backpacker
Alec Sills-Trausch

What you need to focus on is the shoulder width for each person sleeping in the tent as well as how tall they are both horizontally and sitting up. If two people have broad shoulders, some two-person tents may be too small or a bit uncomfortable when sleeping. If so, this may be a time to level up to a three-person tent.

Cabin Tents for Group Camping

Cabin Tents for Group Camping

Cabin tents are the favorite choice for family backpack trips and for camping in groups. They use poles to create a large tent with plenty of standing room that can be split into separate rooms using internal dividers. They often have plenty of windows that offer views and ventilation.

Alec Sills-Trausch
Photographer/Backpacker
Alec Sills-Trausch

Group camping usually involves eight or more people, and getting a tent large enough can be tricky. But when you find the right one, it'll be an amazing time. All you really need to focus on is having not only enough tent space but also enough land area to pitch them.

Geodesic Tents for Extreme Weather Conditions

Geodesic Tents for Extreme Weather Conditions

Geodesic tents are another popular shape. They're essentially a dome-shaped tent with more poles, so they're more structurally stable and can handle more stress. Due to this, they're great choices for wilderness and winter camping.


Because larger tents tend to be less stable, geodesic tents are usually on the smaller side, although you can find sizes suitable for up to four people.

Alec Sills-Trausch
Photographer/Backpacker

I'd liken this kind of tent to what hunters may use to have a home base when out hunting. It's sturdy and provides warmth, which is exactly what someone would be looking for after a long day out in the cold elements hunting game.

Consider Your Camping Weather and Season

The capability of a tent to withstand challenging weather conditions depends on the quality of the tent fabric, the poles, and other items that add to the tent frame, so let's look into these points.

Single-Walled for Dry Daytime, Double-Walled for Wet and Humidity

Single-Walled for Dry Daytime, Double-Walled for Wet and Humidity

Single-walled tents have a single layer that acts as the tent body and the rainfly. They're light and easy to set up. However, they're not always breathable, so condensation can develop on the inside. To avoid this, look for a tent with good ventilation. Single-walled tents are ideal for daytime excursions in dry, cold environments.


Double-walled tents have two walls and are more protective. They often come with a waterproof rainfly outside the breathable tent body. They are heavy and usually take more time to set up, but offer better protection and ventilation than the single-walled types. Double-walled tents are ideal for wet or humid climates.

Alec Sills-Trausch
Photographer/Backpacker
Alec Sills-Trausch

Single-walled tents are best for dry climates where moisture or humidity aren't a factor. Double-walled tents - which most tents are - give you the versatility to have the rainfly on or off depending on the night's temperature.

Three-Season Tents for Mild Climates

Three-Season Tents for Mild Climates

Designed for moderate weather conditions during the months of spring, summer, and fall, three-season tents are lightweight and are easy to transport. 


Most come with a mesh panel called "no-see-um mesh" to encourage airflow inside the tent and to keep insects and flies at bay. If used with a rainfly, they can withstand rain, but not harsh storms or violent wind conditions. Although not ideal for winter, they can also withstand light snowfall. 

Alec Sills-Trausch
Photographer/Backpacker
Alec Sills-Trausch

Most three-season tents are designed to keep the bugs away and ensure you stay dry. They aren't overly strong or heavy, meaning you can find plenty of ultralight versions that keep your backpack light on trips. I should note that three-season tents can be used in the winter, but it's not advised to do anything too extreme.

Four-Season Tents for Mountaineers and Snow Hikers

Four-Season Tents for Mountaineers and Snow Hikers

Despite their name, four-season tents are generally used only in the winter. They're made from heavier fabric and are designed to keep you safe and protected from harsh weather, including snow, ice, and wind. They often have additional poles, a more robust frame, and a dome shape to prevent snow from collecting on top.


Four-season tents minimize the use of mesh but may have vents you can open and close for ventilation. In addition, they often have a longer rainfly to block the elements, as well as additional flaps on the exterior.

Alec Sills-Trausch
Photographer/Backpacker
Alec Sills-Trausch

These are the top-tier tents in the camping world. Four-season tents are structurally stronger - to withstand wind and snow - and usually have fabrics that are designed to protect you from the elements. With more support comes heavier weights, though companies are finding innovative ways to drop weight.

Dome-, A-Shaped, and Pop-up Tents Are Easier to Set Up

Dome-, A-Shaped, and Pop-up Tents Are Easier to Set Up

Because tent types are constructed differently, some are easier to set up than others. Dome- and A-shaped tents are the easiest since they're generally less complicated and have fewer pieces. You also have pop-up tents designed to pop into shape once you remove them from the bag.


These tents require the least amount of time to set up, but they also have some disadvantages. For example, dome and A-shaped tents may not have as many poles for support so they could collapse or have problems with the wind. Pop-up tents can be a pain to store back into the bag since you need to fold them correctly.


These easy-to-setup tents work great for people focused on setting up their tents as quickly as possible. They also work great for people who go camping occasionally.

Alec Sills-Trausch
Photographer/Backpacker
Alec Sills-Trausch

Tents like these are not ones you'll want to do long-term camping in or try in inclement weather. A pop-up tent is perfect for an afternoon at the beach but not a family camping trip.

Assess the Tent's Materials for Durability and Weatherproofing

Assess the Tent's Materials for Durability and Weatherproofing

Most modern tents come in synthetic nylon measured in denier. The lower the denier, the lighter the tent will be. Some tents have higher denier fabrics on the tent floor to reduce the chances of leakage in the event of rain. 


In addition to the tent itself, most come with a separate or built-in rainfly. A full-coverage rainfly protects the entire tent, whereas a roof-only rainfly offers limited protection from the rain. The former types offer optimum protection from rain and wind. The latter types, however, allow more light inside the tent.


Also, consider ventilation. Go for tents with mesh panels to encourage air circulation inside the tent and to get protection from mosquitoes and other insects. 

Decide If You Need Extra Design Features or Accessories

Aside from the size, shape, and material of the tent itself, many of them come with design features to make your camping life easier. 

Vestibules, Pockets, and Organizers to Keep Your Things Off the Floor

Vestibules, Pockets, and Organizers to Keep Your Things Off the Floor

To store away your muddy boots or to keep your essentials and personal items out of the rain, look for vestibules. Most modern tents come with them. Some come with add-on vestibules to add extra storage space. Higher-end tents may come with multiple pockets to store away items like your car keys, flashlight, or personal items. 


If your tent doesn't have enough storage space, consider adding a gear loft that can hold lightweight items. Just hang it on a wall loop or the lantern loop on the ceiling of the tent. 

Alec Sills-Trausch
Photographer/Backpacker
Alec Sills-Trausch

Having a vestibule is nice when it's raining as it gives you a little extra room to spread out without getting things wet. The best example would be your shoes. Instead of taking up room in the tent, leaving them outside in a place where they will stay dry keeps the tent clean and provides added room to move around. Remember, cooking is not advised in a vestibule as it could be a fire risk.

Accessories and Other Impressive Features at Extra Cost

Accessories and Other Impressive Features at Extra Cost

A footprint is an essential accessory to go for, especially when you're camping with a lightweight tent. These ground cloths are customized to fit the size of your tent and go underneath the floor to protect from abrasion and leaks. They're made of high-quality waterproof material.


For lighting, you can hang a battery-operated lantern on the lantern loop usually found at the center of the tent ceiling. Advanced models come with built-in lights on the roof poles. For those that don't, you can attach lights of your own in the ceiling hooks.
