Finding the right tent for your backpacking or camping trip is essential to having a safe, fun trip. Start by thinking about your needs: How many people will be coming with you? If you’re going solo, you could use a one-person tent, or size up to a more comfortable two-person tent. For larger groups, three-person tents and four-person tents let you split the load. Consider weather protection: A three-season tent will be enough for most backpacking trips, while a winter camping tent will take you through fourth-season excursions and mountaineering expeditions. On the other end of the spectrum, ultralight tents can take pounds out of your pack. Find the perfect backpacking tent for you with our expert reviews.
