Both 2 person tents and 3 person tents are available in a wide variety of styles to choose from. There is usually just enough room to sit up in these tents, and most can be purchased with a full heavy-duty vinyl fabric floor to keep dry.
If you are wanting a tent that you can stand up in, you will need at least a 4 man tent or larger.
These smaller tents are perfect for a weekend hunting or fishing trip or for additional sleeping for kids.
There is enough room for one or two people and all your gear. This is contrary to the meaning of 2 and 3 man. For instance if there is only you, a two man tent is ideal.
The smaller footprint also means that it can be set up in an area as small as 8' by 8'. Being smaller it will set up quickly by one person in a small area in the woods, along the trail or river.
This size is also ideal if you and a friend are backpacking or doing survival camping.
If you are in an area that gets cold at night, the smaller tents will warm up quickly. It would be wise to read the specs on the tent, as to the type of material it is made of.
If you are planning to use the tent frequently, you will want a more durable fabric to stand up to the inclement weather.
Camping tents have been our preferred method of camping. While we did start out with the small 2 person tent, we now enjoy room to play cards or enjoy camping during rainy weather inside our 8 person tent.
During extended camping trips of a week or more, giving yourself the extra room makes the experience that much more enjoyable.As you can see by the ad to the right there are a variety tents for camping to choose from. Go to our Camping Store to see a wide selection of tents.
