Choosing tents for camping may look as if it would be more of a headache than a fun task as there are so many choices out there. If the proper research is done then the fun element can be put back in. As long as you aware of the advantages and disadvantages associated with the various types then you are one step away from having the perfect tent.
The first determining factor would be the size of the tent. Depending on the number of persons that you want to have in each tent the choice in size will vary. This will cut down on the number of tents that you have to look at as well. So decide how comfortable you want to be and narrow down the search a bit.
The next thing to consider is the weight of the tent. If it is a case in which you will be hiking or backpacking through the woods then you would not want a heavy tent to lug around. It should be easy to pull down, fold up and carry and set up in the next location. The easiest type to do all this is the dome tent so you can narrow down your search even more and find a convenient size in that category if hiking is on your agenda.
You also have to be a sort of weatherman when it comes to making your selections. If you are going to be making camp in a windy spot then the dome tent would not be appropriate. The tunnel tent would be perfect. After all you do not want to be chasing after your tent when the winds hit you.
You should also pay attention to the type of material that is in the tent. The lighter fabrics, usually a synthetic material is great for carrying around from spot to spot. If you plan to make camp in one location then a canvas tent would be perfect. It is much more durable than the synthetic and as it will only be used in one location is ideal.
So get on the internet, sort the choices, cut them don to size and decide on which tents for camping you are going to get.
