Coleman Hooligan 2 Backpacking Tent

This backpacking tent is ideal for people who do not like to carry around heavy items. The Coleman Hooligan is light weight, which makes it very easy to carry. The tent has only one pole, so it is very easy to put up. It can sleep two campers, and there is a mesh inner tent, which offers campers the best possible ventilation. Campers who are looking for an affordable tent that is light in weight but still durable enough to last during a rainstorm and high winds, then they should consider buying the Coleman Hooligan.

ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 2 Tent

This particular tent is very durable, and it is ideal for people who do a lot of camping in the spring and summer, as well as the fall. This tent's material is designed to keep campers dried from elements such as rain and moisture. Not only is the tent durable, but it also provides campers with plenty of room to store their items, and there is a large vestibule, which comes in handy when a person needs to store their muddy boots or drenched rain gear.

ALPS Mountaineering Chaos 3 Tent

This tent is great for a group of campers to use during anytime of the year. Pitching this tent is extremely easy, as there is just one continuous pole that runs through the tent. Realistically, a camper should be able to set this tent up in about five minutes. This tent is extremely light, as it only weighs around five pounds. This tent sleeps three people, and best of all it sleeps that many people comfortably. If a person is in need of a tent that is very easy to set up and ideal to use throughout any time of the year, then the ALPS Mountaineering Chaos 3 Tent is the tent that they should get.

Slumberjack 4 Person Trail Tent

The Slumberjack 4 person trail tent is the best tent to get if a person does a lot of backpacking, camping or fishing. Unlike the previous tents mentioned earlier, the Slumberjack's poles are made with fiberglass, which means that the poles are very durable, and once the tent is set up, then the chances are that it will stay standing no matter what the weather is. The interior of the tent is massive, and it can sleep four people comfortably. However, this tent is good for just one person to use or a group of people.

It is also worth that when this tent zips up and down, no noise will be made due to the noiseless zipper pull. The tent also has multiple entries. Just as the other tents discussed above, the Slumberjack 4 Person Trail Tent provides protection against the rain, so if it is raining out, then campers will not need to worry.

Eureka Timberline Outfitter 4 9-Foot by 7-Foot Four-Person Tent

Perhaps the best tent on the market today, the Eureka Timberline Outfitter could very well be the best on the market. The frame of this tent is an A-frame style, and it can sleep four people. Many tents on the market do not have floors that are waterproof, even if the rest of the tent is waterproof. However, that is not the case with this tent. This tent actually has a heavy-duty bathtub floor, which is made of oxford nylon. This means that if it is raining, then water will no seep through the floor because the floor will repel the water. In the front of the tent there is a hooded fly and there is also a hooded fly at the rear of the tent, so if it does rain, the windows can stay partially opened. Some tents rip and tear during strong winds, but the Eureka Timberline Outfitter will not tear if campers are camping in strong winds. The stability of the tent is amazing, which makes it ideal for all types of weather conditions. If a person is looking for a tent that they can camp in during any type of season or time of the year, then this is the tent that they want to buy.

If are you are looking for a good backpacking tent to buy, then you should get one of the above tents. They are all durable, as well as reliable and best of all they are all worth the money.
