Choosing a tent by type    

Every camping trip requires a different type of tent. Naturally, if you’re spending the night on a windy mountaintop, you’ll need a different kind of tent than you would if you were spending the night at a festival campground. So make sure to keep the conditions in which you will be travelling in mind.

Dome tents

✓ Offers slightly more sleeping and storage space than a dome tent    

Tunnel tents   

Consists of two to four flexible poles bent into semi-circles and placed parallel to each other.

 

✓ Sets up faster than a dome tent.

✓ Guy lines must always be rigged to stakes.

Hybrid tents    

Consists of two flexible tent poles bent into half circles (like a dome tent) supplemented with an extra awning or tent in front (like a tunnel tent).

 

✓ Combines the benefits (self-supporting structure and space) of a dome tent and a tunnel tent.

✓ These models are often more technical.    

Lightweight tents      

Hiking tents that weigh less than 2.5 kg and can easily be taken with while travelling.
