They say camping can be fun. You can explore the outdoors, get in touch with nature, and learn to appreciate it.
And it’ll be relaxing too. There’ll be no distractions: no paperwork, no emails, no school work, no traffic, no noisy surroundings. It’s just you, the sound of crickets, the majestic trees, the serene waters, and fresh air.
Bring your family or friends with you and you all will definitely have a great time!
If we’ve convinced you to go camping, then you’ll need to consider some things first. You need to have camping gear. And in this gear, one of the most crucial ones to have is a tent.
Camping tents come in a different size, build, structure, and design. If you want a camping bag that’s not the usual tent most campers go for, then this list is for you!
Read on if you want to bring some funk to your camp.
This design is actually a combination of a dome and a teepee. Since it is a cone-shaped tent, rain and snow will just drip down to the ground. But for it to be truly weatherproof especially from wind, you must install the guy cables properly.
Airflow is also great because of the big mesh door, ground vents, and vented roof. This works best during summer. And when the weather turns chilly, simply zip them back up!
It looks different, yes, but it’s as good as any camping tent. In fact, it’s great!
The number of people it can accommodate is just grand. It didn’t fit 12 full tall adults. Only 10 fit in our test. But still, that’s a good number.
It looks like a pod. We know. But it’s an
effective, futuristic, and innovative pod that works in more ways than one!
First off, it’s free-standing but fits in a disc which by the way is only 20 inches in diameter, not even 1 ½ inch thick, and is only 3 lbs. Beat that all.
You don’t have to assemble it. It automatically pops out when taken out.
Great for camping, hiking, traveling, and even for babies or pets to play inside. No mosquitos or insects can ever get it.
Women campers will love the design and color! Although it is designed to be camouflage, its beautiful design might stand out.
It’s very convenient. You need only throw it and it will figure things out for you! No really, you need only a teenie tiny bit of handling so it can stand up. But that’s pretty much it!
Not totally hands-free, but perhaps one-hand free? Something along that line.
It has a spacious room and it’s easy to put up and take down. Perfect for active and frequent campers!
This tent also looks like a combination of dome and peetee style tent. Nonetheless, it’s an incredible tent!
Looks-wise, it’s not bad. It’s actually the opposite. It gives you that festive vibe because of its size, shape, color. Like there’s a festival in your town. That kind?
Anyway, with this tent, you can sit, sleep, stand, and play inside. Yup, it’s that roomy. There are also two extensions and you can use either as a separate room that you can remove if you want to.
Its top-of-the-line construction will protect you from rain and wind. It can fit in 5-6 people and still have room to move around. And it’s not heavy to carry around!
Different Types of Tents
Choosing a tent is like choosing a house design. There are so many things to consider: size, design, structure, floor area, materials, etc. Here we narrowed it down for you so it becomes a little less confusing.
This is probably the most common camping tents because of their minimalistic and simple structure. It is referred to as the standard shape in tents. But dome tents today can have extensions on different sides.
Tunnel tents are long tents that basically look like a tunnel inside. Poles help it look like so. Tunnel tents have a spacious headspace.
These tents are what families and bigger groups go for because it is larger in size and space compared to others.
A cabin tent, as the name suggests, looks like a cabin or a room. They look like boxes and they have a generous headspace more than tunnel tents. They have several windows and can even have 2 or more rooms.
They work best during summer because of the hot weather and these tents have the windows and tall door space for it.
Bell tents have a pole in the center which makes the top pointed. The floor space is somehow circular and the door is shaped like a letter A.
These tents are like bell tents in a way they look like pyramids. They also have a central pole. The only difference is that they don’t have any vertical poles around the walls.
Each section has no wall section. So the fabric sort of like drapes from the top all the way to the bottom without any shape. But they can be roomy depending on the size.
The tent that works for some may not work for you. It’s important to consider durability, material, size, and construction. But it’s equally important to know what you’ll need the tent for and how many will occupy one tent.
But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to sacrifice style. A lot of tents have all of the above including style.
