Why You Should Choose a Quality Backpacking Tent

Why You Should Choose a Quality Backpacking Tent
A backpacking tent is an essential tool to the hiker and camper who relies on their shelter for safety and refuge. Choosing to buy a quality tent as opposed to one that does not meet the camper's needs will assure the camping experience will be successful.


A quality backpacking tent should be dependable. This means the fabric such as nylon taffeta or UV resistant polyester that is seam sealed should be easily able to withstand severe weather elements and be resistant to tearing such as the Twilight by Marmot.


Only buy quality backpacking tents such as the Habitat 5 Person Tent from Mountain Hardware that includes a long standing warranty such as 20 years to a lifetime.


Choosing a tent like the Crestone by Kelty that has feather or ultra-light poles will assure that transporting the tent will be easy on the back and arms.


A backpacking tent such as the Gogo by Nemo Equipment that is not only lightweight but is easy to carry and store should also be a priority.


A tent that meets all of the needs of the backpacker, from a reinforced rain fly to adequate ventilation such as the Tensihi by Nemo Equipment will help to assure that the tent stays dry and cool during transport and setup.
