The Most Trustworthy Backpacking Tents




For all the backpacking enthusiasts out there, the importance of a quality tent need not be explained. After a whole day of hiking on foot under the sun and through rough terrains, it is super important to catch an undisturbed eight hours of solid sleep. Imagine a scenario where your tent is so flimsy that you cannot sleep comfortably. Now imagine another where your tent is so heavy that it becomes a huge pain to carry it around on your back all day. By now You have understood how important it is to find the perfect, functional, lightweight tent that also fits into your budget. From the plethora of options out there, we have picked out the best ones for you:
1.       Big Agnes Copper Spur HV: At a minimum trail weight of around 2 lb. 12 oz, this tent enters our list as the best tent overall. It is extremely light to carry around and easy to pitch. Its large pockets and big doors show how thoughtfully it has been crafted for the ease of campers. High quality material and sturdy build ensure this tent lasts you for many camping trips.

This home brand tent from REI is one of the best available in this segment, and that too at an excellent price. Weighing at two pounds, 14 ounces this tent is quite easy to carry around and equally easy to set up. The fly and tent body are made of comparatively thin 15 and 20-denier ripstop nylon, which holds up to a good amount of wear and tear.

What’s more, you can set this up even without using trekking poles. The air circulation inside this tent is so good that it will feel almost as well-ventilated as a real room.
