You should buy the best tent you can afford if you want it to be weatherproof and comfortable to sleep in. When you shop for a tent, you should consider the number of people it will be accommodating and what width and height are best suited to your needs.

There are now so many camping tents on the market that it seems an almost impossible task to try to choose one. There are dozens of sizes, scores of different designs and all wrapped up in many different prices.

However there is a way to make the choice a simpler one and that is by concentrating on three basic elements which are size, strength and cost. This article will look at how to evaluate a tent based on these three points and discus some overall considerations that should be taken into account when choosing a tent in general.

The size of the tent you should choose is one of the most basic considerations, and essentially boils down to the question of how many people will be using the tent and in what kind of conditions. If there are only two people going to be using the tent, a large family tent will be big and excessively heavy for your needs.
