When buying a tent, there are a few things that are important to bear in mind:
Which colour tent you buy is a completely individual choice. Buying the colour you like the most makes sense, but there can be times when the colour of the tent serves a purpose. If, for example, you are going out bird watching, or going to camp in places where you do not want to be seen, choosing a more camouflaged tent would be an advantage. Purchasing a green tent for camping during the summer would be a good choice for those who want to blend in, and the same could be said for a white or grey tent during the winter months when it is snowing and dark.
The size of a tent is crucial for your comfort, both when you sleep and when you are travelling. It’s always good to know how many people the tent will comfortably fit and how much baggage will fit inside. If there are two people, a two-person tent is usually good enough; if you are alone, a one-person tent is usually good enough. But sometimes when you have more luggage a two-person tent may be better for one person – then there will be plenty of space to store your belongings.
What you should also bear in mind is that all tents, regardless of what they are sold as, come in different sizes and shapes – which can, of course, affect space and weight when you are packing.
One of the more in-demand tents today is a 4-season tent. If you are camping all year round and in areas where there is snow, the 4-season tent is both stronger and differently ventilated to lighter weight tents. The construction enables good ventilation whilst avoiding drafts. It can also withstand higher loads of snow. Some of these tents also have an opening for a heater or stove, so you can heat the inside space. When you choose a stove for the tent, you should choose a very small one as they are usually incredibly efficient, and the area to be heated is relatively small.
