Spend a weekend living with what you wear on your back while walking more than 10 miles a day may seem like a chore for some, but for backpackers, it’s a way of life. Designated campsites within walking distance of your car or any semblance of working toilets, but this weekend warrior brand enjoys looking for these amenities (or lack of them). While stuffing a backpack filled with clothing seems pretty simple, the tent in which you sleep, miles away from civilization, can make or break any back country trip. Roll down a tent that’s too heavy and you’ll be a stone’s throw from your starting point, but packing a tarpaulin and some shoddy sticks will make you rethink that idyllic concept of sleeping under the stars. A tent must find a balance between lightness and ability to pack for hours on the trail, while remaining strong enough to provide adequate shelter. In the end, the type of tent you choose to join in the long run depends on the type of trip you intend to do. Short trips can hang on the side of a heavier tent, while longer trips over several days may require an ultra-light option. Whatever the scenario, tent manufacturers like Big Agnes, MSR and even REI have a large number of options available that are designed to keep you warm while keeping your eyes closed.

How to choose a hiking tent

choosing the right tent is about making some key decisions: capacity, weight and quality of life.

Capacity: Hiking tents are available in one to four person models. There are no industry standards, so be sure to enter your tent and see if it has enough space for your comfort. The large tent options offer extra length and width.
Weight: Tents have appeared over the years and you can now easily find a tent that weighs less than three pounds per person. When checking the weight, you should know that the minimum trail weight is measured without the footprint and stakes, while the packaged weight includes a storage bag, instructions, etc. Your actual weight on the track will be somewhere in between.
Ability: the new tents manage to open the interiors without adding weight, for more comfort. What makes sense for your needs?


backpacking tent can be expensive. Take care of your tent and it will last years of adventures. Here are some tips to make sure your store will last.


Sometimes, your tent will be very dirty after a trip or you will have gone to do a lot of small trips and it’s time to clean up. Salt, mud and dust can break fabrics, coatings and posts over time. You can gently clean with a garden hose gently most of the time. If you need more than that, a mild soap (no detergent or other strong cleanser) and a soft sponge will do the trick. Never wash in the washing machine or dry it in clothes dryer. They are too rough for the delicate tissues of the carp.


The most important thing to remember when storing a tent is that it is dry. Mold will start in a damp tent in just 24 hours. Moisture can break down fabrics and waterproof coatings, leaving you with a sticky carp that peels off. Prepare or hang your tent to dry completely before storage. Do not leave it in the sun for a long time, as UV rays will begin to decompose the rain. Once it is dry, wind it in a loose bag or canvas bag and store it in a cool, dry place. Try to avoid bending the store in the same folding lines over and over again. This will increase the wear in those small areas.Top Ten Back Pack Tents
