Tents

The following tents are very popular among lightweight and UL hikers. I’ve separated them into 1-person, 2-person, and 3-person tent categories, but if you want extra space then you may need to go up a tent size (two people use a 3-person tent). Be sure to consider the following features when selecting a tent:

  • Price
  • Weight
  • Number of entries
  • Type of entry (front, side)
  • Dimensions
  • Interior height
  • Packed size
  • Uses tent poles or trekking poles for set up
  • Free-standing or Non-freestanding
  • Size of “bathtub floor” (if any)
  • Single wall or double wall
  • Number of vestibules
  • Stability in wind
  • Performance in rain
  • Ease of setup
  • Material (Silnylon, Cuben Fiber)
