Lightweight tent
« on: November 02, 2015, 03:45:05 PM »
I was looking for lightweight tent and found 1 person tent with following specs:
Material Polyester 180t si
Weight 720g

What is a good price for a such tent? Is it a good material?

Depends on what you want to do with it. Backpacking needs a different tent than car camping or bike camping. Is pack size or weight or weatherproof-ness or comfort most important to you?

I generally buy tents by brand name. You can't go wrong with a Kelty or North Face for backpacking or canoe camping. Their car tents are good but pricy.

get online and google backpacking or camping. You'll be able to access numerous backpacking/hiking/camping commercial sites and be able to access blogs and youtube videos re: quality of tents.

Also, don't neglect checking out camping hammocks instead of a tent.
