The Best 4 Person Tents

By

If you’ve had enough of huffing and puffing trying to assemble a tent in the middle of nowhere then stop right there. If you ever find yourself up against questionable camping weather and in dire need of getting inside a cosy tent as soon as possible then you need to make sure you’ve read our list of the best 4 person tents.

How to Choose the Best 4 Person Tent

Weight

As with all camping gear, don’t go all out and buy a super heavy tent as your back definitely won’t be thanking you when you reach mile 10. Go for something about 10lbs, this will give you a good quality and enough space whilst being kind to your posture.

Set-Up

Do you want a pop-up tent or are you happy to assemble it yourself? There’s good options for both but the ready made ones tend to be a little bulkier than the ones that you have to make-up yourself. So weigh up the pros and cons and decide which one suits your camping needs best.

Height

How tall are you? Do you want to be able to stand up straight inside the tent or are you happy to crawl around? Whichever you decide, be sure to find one that doesn’t feel too cramped inside, as there’s nothing worse than a stuffy tent where you can’t seem to find all your things. And remember, these are four person tents so it won’t just be used making house in there.
