Things To Consider When Buying 2-Person Tents

Now if this is your first time finding a tent there are something you need to think about.

You need to find a tent that is suited to where you will be going.

Sounds simple enough right? You need to look for things like:

Weather Proofing

Some tents are not waterproof.

They may be water resistant but that doesn’t mean you will stay dry during the monsoon season in Arizona.

Also look for one that will withstand a drop in temperature.

Just because the days are hot doesn’t mean the nights will be too.

You need to prepare for all accounts of weather.


Some tents only come equipped with small roof netting or ‘screen’ door that doesn’t keep you cool during hot nights.

That same ‘screen’ that allows air to get in can also cause you to freeze at night.

So make sure that your tent is adjustable.


When it comes to backpacking you can’t afford to be bogged down by too much weight.

It is important to find lightweight tents that are easy to set up.

The last thing you want is to be worn out due to the extra weight of a tent.

So pick one that is light and easily to accommodate into your pack.
