Lightest 2 Person Backpacking Tent
Living in the city can cause stress. There’s just no going around about that. While some might love being or staying in the city, some want to escape and experience outdoors where there are no skyscrapers, vehicles, and bustling crowd.
There are many things to do outdoors: biking, camping, fishing, you name it. You can turn it into a hobby if you haven’t already! Doing outdoor activities can make you focus on the activity and enjoying what outside the city can offer.
It’s beautiful and fun outside even if you’re alone. It’s healthier too! But it is still vital to be safe while being outside. Which is why your camping or hiking gears are crucial.
A good backpacking tent may be one of the most important things you should consider especially if there are two of you going out for a hike or camp. And since you’ll be carrying several things with you, you’ll need one that won’t add up to the weight.
Here we’ve rounded up some of the lightest 2 person backpacking tent that you won’t want to miss!
This camping tent from Mier is so durable, it lets you wait out a storm while being comfortable and unruffled inside.
It doesn’t take up too much space in the backpack yet it offers so much space when assembled!
The tent is made of nylon coated with silicone and PU. The inner tent has a mesh and is made with nylon. The floor, footprint, and bag are made up of the same materials as well. Aluminum alloy makes up the poles and stakes.
It also features 1 indoor lantern hanger, 2 pockets, sealed seams (to guarantee weather protection), laminated 4 corners (to ensure durability), and 2 air vents (for ideal ventilation).
Everything’s under 4 lbs!
Designed specifically for backpacking, this backpack tent will get you through camping, hiking, and other outdoor adventures!
The rainfly with SBS zippers and the rain gutters are made with polyester and PU. The inner part of the tent is made with polyester and net yarn. The footprint is made with polyester lattice, while the poles, stakes and metal press stake with aluminum alloy.
Easy to set-up, durable from fabric to poles, and small but spacious!
It also includes two doors, corner pockets, and two vestibules to store gears and easy access inside.
Now, you might be thinking, Oh it’s another Hyke & Byke. Well it’s because this brand really does make supreme backpacking tents.
Like the Yosemite, this tent has a polyester and PU SBS zippers and rain gutters, with the inner part with breathable polyester and net yarn. A polyester lattice cloth makes up the footprint, and aluminum alloys build the poles.
And like the Yosemite, 7000 Series aluminum alloy with a diameter of 8.5mm is what makes these backpack tents utra-light! The only difference between Zion and Yosemite is their built, design, and overhead space. The Zion has the upper hand on the latter.
We think the idea of this backpacking tent is to have a lot of room not just inside, but also when going inside. It has two D-shaped doors and two vestibules to allow comfortable entrance and exit. In fact, it can house two long twin-size airbeds!
It’s also serious about being weather resistant by having the seams taped, the floor welded to protect against wet surfaces and the overall construction rainproof. Isn’t that what all tents should be?
The waterproof fabric can also make way for the mesh which goes all the way up so you can have great ventilation and an amazing view of what’s outside your tent.
It also accommodates freestanding without any problems. It’s lightweight, durable, breathable, and is not shy about room size.
This backpacking tent is designed to be a professional tent that every hiker or camper will love whether you are an occasional hiker or camper, or a seasoned one!
Features 2 D-shaped doors and 2 vestibules for easy in and out. All materials used in this tent are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions. Its floor is elevated to help keep you dry should the ground gets wet.
Setting it up is easy and won’t take 5 mins. Perfect for if you arrive at your destination with bad weather. If the weather is good, you can enjoy it and the view with its large mesh window with micro ventilation which helps when bugs and insects are around.
Gaze at the stars clearly at night!
Tips on Backpacking
- 1. Pack light but smart. Don’t bring a telescope unless you really must. Bring only the essentials.
- 2. Test your gears. Test your tent, sleeping bag, lantern, etc. It’s the only way to make sure they work when you need them to.
- 3. Tell your friends where you’re headed to and for how long. This will help tell if something is wrong should you delay.
- 4. Don’t forget to have a background check on the area before you go there. Some areas may not be allowed for hiking or camping.
Going for a hike may not be for everybody. But it can be if you have the right backpacking tent, sleeping bag, and other essentials.
If you’re really unsure of making plans, ask a friend who has experience in camping or hiking, or ask help from a professional.
