For true outdoor lovers, a reliable camping tent is really worth investing on. But due to the large number of outdoor tents with different designs and features crowding the market today, it might be difficult to know which one is right for you.
Initially you’ll want to determine the type of camping you like to do - a quick camping trip to a local park, camping out for days for a music or mountain bike festival, or car camping with the kids for the summer. From that, you will be able to decide on specific functionalities you want your camping tent to have.
Choose a model based on your group’s size with additional space for gears. Six-person tents are popular due to their spacious interiors that offer plenty of room for mattresses and other items. Also if you like being able to stand up when changing clothes, then look for a tent with a tall peak height. For the wet weather, a waterproof cover such as a rain fly is important to keep you dry and for maximum protection from wind and rain. Mesh panels are often used in the ceiling, doors and windows of outdoor tents to enhance ventilation and breathability inside the tent. Other features to look for: quick and easy set up and take down, waterproof floor and walls, heavy duty zippers, and a sturdy construction to withstand gusty winds and heavy downpour.
