How to Choose Backpacking Tents || REI

hey Miranda here we at the coop love a good backpacking tentit's your portable home in the outdoors but with so many options to choose fromhow do you know which one is right for you well let's talk about backpackingtentsthe first thing to consider in choosing a tent is capacity or how many peopleplan on being in the tent if you only ever plan on solo backpacking you canget away with a much smaller tent like this one then if you think you'll besharing your tent with multiple people tech manufacturers will let you know howmany people attend is designed for write in the name of the tent so for examplethis is the REI co-op Half Dome one plus which is a one-person tent and this hereis a Half Dome - behind me we have a three percent as well as a four personversion of this tent while this number is good for getting a general idea ofhow many people will fit in the tent there is no standard acrossmanufacturers so while this Half Dome is a two-person tent this Big Agnes FlyCreek is also a two-person tent so obviously there's a big difference insize you may also want to choose a tent that's one larger than the number ofpeople you plan on having in it in case you'd like to have a lot of extra spaceor if you plan on backpacking with a dog or it's small childrenthe next thing to consider is seasonality or when you plan on usingthe tenth three seasoned tents are the most common types of backpacking tentslike this one here this is a great choice for most backpacking trips and alot of people will use them even for camping which is what I do these tentsuse a light pole structure as well as lightweight materials and they have alot of mesh for ventilation with their rain fly they're totally waterproof andwhen they're staked up properly they'll withstand most summer storms however youcan get the wind coming up underneath the rain fly and going through the meshso they're not a great choice for winter environments are really cool brotherinvites that brings us to mountaineering tents mountaineering tents use a robustpole system with a lot of intersections which is going to give the tentedstrength and they also have really durable materials which are designed totake heavy snowfall and high winds they have a lot less mesh than we see on athree season tent and all of the mesh is closable this will help trap the warmair inside the tent which is going to keep it a few degrees warmer this tentdoesn't currently have its rain fly on but with the rain fly and has even moredurability against the heavy winds these tents are really great formountaineering as well as for high alpine conditions while these tents aregood for the heavy rain and heavy snowfall and a lot of storm systems theyare just too heavy and too bulky for most three season back packers so thisis on the heavier side of three season tents and it weighs about five poundswhereas this tent weighs nearly ten pounds if you're looking for somethingkind of in between those two there are extended season tents like this tenthere this one has slightly more poles or a few more poles than you see on thethree season tent and the slightly heavier structure ithas a lot more mesh than you see on a mountaineering tent but it's allcloseable so you can again trap that warm air inside which is something thatyou can't do with a three season tent this tug weighs in at about 6 pounds ora little over 6 pounds that's seasonalityonce you decided what size and style of tent you want the next thing you want todo is strike a balance between weight and comfort or livability of the tentwhen you look at a tent will be two different weights listed the first isthe minimum trail weight and then you have the packaged weight of the tent theminimum trail weight is going to include the tent body the rain fly and the polesall the things that you need just to set it up the package weight adds in thestuff sack the pole bag as well as the stakes and the pole repair or anyguidelines that come with it I generally don't carry the stuff sacks with me butI'm definitely gonna carry the stakes as well as the repair so your trail weightmight be somewhere in between these two numbers if you're splitting up the tentwith friends so you're backpacking with other people you want to aim for around3 pounds per person ultralight backpackers however we'regonna go for something a lot lighter closer to 1 pound per person this isjust the way to the tent though you don't want to simply consider weightwhen you're picking a tent when you start cutting weight there are a fewtrade-offs that you need to be aware of durability is one concern heavier weightmaterials are generally going to be more durable than light weight materials solight weight tents are more prone to snags and tears and may require somemore maintenance on trail generally speaking they're not going to withstandas much abuse as heavier material as wellanother thing that will affect the weight of a tent is whether or not it isfreestanding freestanding tents as the name implies will stand on their ownwhen they're set up with the pulse so you can see here on this tent the polesgo to all corners of the tent which allows it to stand on its own nonfreestanding tents like this one here will require stakes to stand up tentslike this require easy ground to stake and if you take the stakes out of thetent it'll just fall over a great thing about freestanding tents is that you canset this up in a pinch and climb inside if bad weather rolls in you'll stillwant to stick it out for maximum ventilation as well as strength but it'sa little bit easier how much that set up there also semi freestanding tents likethis one here so this tent will stand on its ownjust the pole system you can see in the front you have poles that go to thefront two corners but you'll want to stake the back two quarters in the tentand utilize the fly to guy out the sides to maximize the interior space of thetent which leads us into livabilitynot all tents are equally roomy and comfortable some tents will skimp onfeatures to save weight while others have a ton of extras to make themcomfortable one of these features is having dual entry or two door entry intoa tent this is especially great if you'resharing a tent it gives you and your buddy your own entryway and exit soyou're not crawling over each other for midnight bathroom breaks in addition tohaving two doors sometimes we'll have two vestibulesor covered outdoor spaces that allow you to store your boots as well as your gearto keep from cluttering up the inside of the tent this tent has two doors as wellas two vestibules and i have the back one set up and then the front one hereis just rolled up if I did want to use this for storing my gear I could unhookthis and then stake it out and have a lot of extra space another importantthing you'll want to consider in choosing a tent is the interior space ofthe tent if you look at the specs online you'll see the dimensions of the floorplan as well as the peak height of a tent but that's not going to tell youthe whole story some tents will have sloping side walls which drasticallycuts down on the head space but also saves you some weight let's show you anexample of that this tent has those sloping sidewalls so you can see thatthe sides of the tent come up to a point this cuts down on weight but itdrastically reduces the amount of head space that you have this is a reallynice ultralight two person backpacking tent and well it's perfect for sleepingit's not great for hanging out other tents like this one will have verticalsidewalls this gives you a lot more interior room and a head space in thetent and it allows you to sit up in tent which can be really nice if you'rereading a book a few other features that you get with tents are pockets rememberwith any of these things you're adding a little bit of weight to the tent but itcan be really nice for organizing your gear so this tent has pockets on thesides as well as a pocket up here for storing the door when it's rolled backand then you also have pockets for headlamps or anything else again all ofthese extra features are going to add some weight so it's a trade-off betweenthe livability and the weight of the tent once you've chosen your tent werecommend getting a footprint footprints our tent specific and they're designedto protect the bottom of your
