This category contains all our lightweight tents that are suitable for hikers who carry their gear on their backs. Along with our lightweight sleeping bags and outdoor gear, these backpacking tents are essentials that every trekker should have with them.
The Three Main Benefits of Buying a Hiking Tent
- Lightweight for carrying around without compromising durability of the tent.
- Small to medium sizes, up to 3 people per tent.
- Compact size when packed away won’t take up excessive backpack space.
Hiking tents are purposely designed for hikers. The material weight, size when packed away, and capacity when pitched is all tailored for the needs of backpackers. If you are planning an outdoor adventure and need to take your tent with you on your back, this type of tent is the most suitable.
Practical Advice and Tips on Backpacking Tents
The general rule for backpacking tents is that they should weigh roughly 2.5 pounds per person. So, if you are carrying a 2 man tent it could weight around 5 pounds.
If you’re sharing a tent, it’s often a good idea to split all your belongings by weight so the person carrying the tent isn’t weighed down too much.
To keep the weight as low as possible, choose trekking tents that use minimal material and very few tent poles.
When packing away your hiking tent, place it in the bottom of your backpack so you can reach the lighter essentials on the go without unpacking everything.
