Tips for Finding Camping Tents With the Easiest Setup and Takedown

April 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 82

Camping can become overwhelming once you dive into all the gear that is associated with it. There are tons of camping equipment, many brands, and styles that leave you wondering which is the best for you. Personally, one of the top things I rate is the weight of the tent. I want something that won't weigh me down during the day. I like to look at the size, the material of a tent, and reviews before any purchase. I've personally found that Kelty tents offer the best tents on the market and fit about any avid or new camper.

Let's think about what size tent you need. How many campers will there be? How much equipment do you have to store at night? Kelty tents have a range of tents to fit a one man show to a family of campers. If you read reviews, you will find types of their models that are more roomy than others inside.

Setting up and taking down can be a ton of work if you don't have a good tent. Kelty tents are perfect because they have color coded clips and most have only 2 poles for 2 and 3 camping tents. They are a breeze to set up - any novice will feel like a pro putting their tents up. It's quick and easy, which is important, especially if bad weather is looming.

Another reason I like this tent is their affordability. Many of their top models are well under $200, depending on the size of the tent of course. This is important because you don't want to spend all your money on something you don't know you like or will use in the future. You want something long term, that you can pull out of the garage for years to come and still rely on it.

Most appealing tents: I like the Salida 2 tent because of it's simplicity. It's roomy inside and provides excellent circulation for such a small tent. With 2 poles, it's a breeze to throw up, and lightweight at less then 5 pounds. Got to love a tent on your back that doesn't feel like you're carrying rocks on your back!

I also think many people like the Gunnision 2.1 and 3.1 tents. They are lightweight as well. The Gunnison 3.1 actually won an award as the best all around tent in 2009.

The Kelty tents brand is a good outdoor equipment name. They are a reliable and trustworthy name and I think their tents are hard to beat with all you get.
