Learn How to Pick the Right Single Person Tent

Author: Administrator
There are many people who enjoy camping. There are as many reasons why people choose to camp. For most of those people camping means tents. There are tents that will hold up to a dozen people, but those are big and heavy, and aren't practical for most people. There are people who like to camp by themselves or hike in the wilderness and need some kind of shelter. A single person tent gives those people what they need.

But picking out the right solo tent isn't as easy as walking into a store and grabbing the first tent a person sees. There are several things that go into making a tent the right choice.

The first thing to think about is when the person is going to go camping. Tents come in different ratings. These rating describe what seasons the tent is good for. They come in 1 season, 3 season and 4 season. The lighter the material the tent is made of the fewer the seasons the tent is good for. If the person is only planning on camping in good weather during the summer then they can get away with just a lightweight 1 season tent. But, unless the person is an avid winter camper, a 3 season tent is the best choice to go.

The reason that a 3 season single person tent is the best choice is because it offers quite a bit of flexibility. The camper doesn't have to worry about inclement weather because the tent is sturdier. It also lets the person start camping earlier and stop camping later. The difference in weight from a 1 season to a 3 season tent is very small. The only people need to buy a 4 season tent is if they like to camp in wintertime.

Another thing to think about is how much space the person needs in their solo tent. Some of the tents are just big enough for a person in a sleeping back to fit in. There isn't much room for gear, and it's not tall enough for a person to stand in, and it might be difficult for a person to sit up in without hitting their heads. Other tents include a vestibule that allows the camper to store their gear outside and still have it stay dry. Those tents also tend to be a little higher, so a person can sit up comfortably. Some may even be tall enough for a person to stand up in, at least hunched over.

Cost is another thing to think about when choosing a tent. While there are tents in a variety of price ranges a person should get the best tent they can afford. Generally the more expensive a solo tent is the better the quality it is and the longer it will last. So it will serve a person well to buy the best tent that they can.

Picking the right single person tent is important. Keeping just a few things in mind can make it much easier to get the right tent.
