As tents are precisely your home away from home, it should be fun to choose the one that is just right for you. Choosing the right one will assure you of great camping experiences.  We can have a look at how tents are made, sizes and weights.  While each adventurer has his or her own explicit needs, a double-wall, three-season, freestanding tent will work well for most situations.

Double Wall Tent:  The double wall tent is more versatile and vents better. That’s because the first “wall” is the tent body, while the second “wall” is the rain fly. This setup allows for greater versatility and comfort. On hot, clear nights, you can pitch the tent without a fly. This for better ventilation and a cooler night’s sleep. In foul weather, the rain fly will add weather protection as well as warmth. And, for a lightweight option, some double wall tents have a quick pitch setup or a footprint, fly, and poles are combined for a lightweight setup without the tent body.

Single Wall Tent:  So, here is the difference between the double and the single wall tent.  Single wall tents combine the tent body and waterproof fly into one fabric. They are favored by mountaineers and adventurers because of their lighter weight and smaller packed volume. The issues with single wall tents is that they aren’t as versatile.  Also, condensation has a tendency to form on the walls inside the tent.

Three Season Tents:  They are best suited for most climates and conditions.  Also, they mostly have double wall construction. These tents can be used by car campers and backpackers alike.

Four Season Tents:  They can be used year round.  However, they are actually geared towards winter excursions. These tents are built to combat low temperatures, high winds, and heavy snow.

Actual Living Space Of a Tent:  The most important factor in determining the interior space is the exterior space of the tent. A tent with larger vestibules or the covered area outside the tent lets you to store more gear outside the tent. This is perfect because it frees up the valuable interior space. Two door tents excel in this area as they have two vestibules of considerable size.

Weight Of a Tent:  A lighter tent will most likely be constructed of more delicate materials, whereas a heavier tent will be more durable. Generally speaking, a tent should weigh approximately 2.5 pounds per person.
