Backpacking tents are usually designed for one, two and sometimes three people. They are extremely lightweight enabling them to be carried along with the backpack when people are traveling by foot to out of the way places. These are usually basic tents with few extras as their design has to be small and lightweight.

When choosing the right outdoor camping tents for your specific needs it is always wise unless you are planning on backpacking to buy a tent slightly larger than what the manufacturer recommends. This will allow you to sleep a little more comfortably and give you a bit more space if confined during a rainstorm or other poor weather.

As far as cost is concerned, any camping tent in the $120 to $250 price range will be of more that you'll need for a while. Camping tents in this price range are of enough quality for you not to worry too much about the brand and should serve you well for a couple of years. If you end up getting a family camping tent much lower that $100, then chances are that you will make another financial commitment to upgrade shortly after your first trip. Don't spend more than $300 on a Family tent until you are a you are experienced in tent camping. Brands do not matter as much as the price will indicate. Just watch out for items you may be buying from overseas as returns may not be possible if you are not satisfied. If buying online, make sure you check the return policies of the site.

As this article is geared toward family camping, we'll stay with the large family style camping tents. First decide on how you will be using your tent. Are you just going to sleep in it? Are you also storing personal items (clothes, entertainment, toiletries) inside? Will you be using the tent to store other camping gear? These are all important to consider before you purchase a camping tent, because when a manufacturer states that a tent sleeps four people, what they really mean to say is - this tent will only fit four normal sized sleeping bags with room for little else! So if your family of four plans to use the tent for more than just sleep, then it's wise to buy a large family camping tent that sleeps six and quite possibly a tent with more than one room (for those who are planning on camping with pre-teen and/or teenage kids - you know what I mean!).

The size and weight of a camping tent doesn't really make a difference, as long as you're capable to carry it from your car or truck to the camping area and it accommodates in your vehicle along with all of your other camping supplies. Camping tent capacity is founded on the number of individuals who can comfortably doze off inside the tent. Take for example, a standard two man tent will fit in two individuals and most likely have very little space for storage. A reputable principle is to always purchase a camping tent which holds a capacity rating of two people in excess of the

Camping is a great way to enjoy the great out of doors, explore new places or just enjoy getting away for a few days when you have a limited budget. Camping is inexpensive and fun if you have the right gear and the most important of all your gear is an outdoor camping tent.

A lot of these tents are nylon made. It was designed to allow people inside it to have fresh air in and out of the Camping tents. These tents are made ergonomic as it was passed on from one generation to another. If you want your Camping tents to be able to protect you from rain, then you need to fit your tent with a rain fly that covers the roof and walls of your tent. If you want it to protect you from insects, you need to have a fine mesh screen on your tent's windows and doors.

Obviously spring, summer and fall are the seasons we camp during the most. Yet depending on the geographic area, ask yourself how often could you experience more extreme weather? We all know that sudden rain storms and high winds do happen, and if you typically camp in areas where the possibility of extreme weather can happen, you want to be prepared. Every tent is water resistant to some degree, yet if you camp in an area where frequent rain storms occur, you may want to purchase a tent specifically designed to repel rain. The same thing can be said for high winds, scorching sun and heat and the camping tents that are designed for those types of camping situations, such as stronger poles, sun screens and lots of vents. Buy the tent with the proper features and your camping experience will be that much more wonderful!

Camping tents come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors and formations. Choosing the best one for you again depends on what style of camper you are, where you typically camp and what you will be using your tent for. When purchasing a tent for family camping, remember you only have to set it up once and take it down once. So during your camping experience your tent should be comfortable for everyone to use and function for all activities. Here are several considerations: Height of tent - if you're 6'4\" and you purchase a dome tent that is 5'6\" high at the tallest point, be prepared for lots of stooping, otherwise you may want to purchase a family style camping tent with enough height clearance for the tallest member of the family! Weather - if you camp in a constantly windy area (like some beaches) a dome style of tent would be better as it's specifically designed to buffer high and constant winds. Humidity - camping in high humidity areas can bring lots of wonderful insects to your camping experience! You may want to purchase a tent with lots of screened vents and possibly a screened eating canopy as well. Personally, I'm not a bug-in-my-food kind of camper!
