There are many reasons you might need an outdoor tent. Maybe you're planning a solo hiking trip and need a 1-person backpacking tent. Or perhaps you’re taking the whole family on a camping exploration and need an 8-person tent. Whatever the case, choosing the correct outdoor tent for your needs is essential to having a safe and enjoyable time.
What to Look for in an Outdoor Tent
There are a few things to consider when purchasing an outdoor tent. First, think about the size of the tent. It should be big enough to accommodate everyone using it but not so large that it's cumbersome to set up. Second, consider the climate in which you'll be using the tent. If you're expecting extreme weather, look for a tent designed to withstand high winds or heavy rain. Third, consider the weight and portability of the tent. If you plan on backpacking or hiking with your tent, you'll need something lightweight and easy to carry. Finally, take a look at the price. Outdoor tents can range in price from relatively affordable to quite expensive, so set a budget and stick to it. With these factors in mind, you can find an outdoor tent that fits your needs.
Outdoor Tent Use Cases and Types of Outdoor Tents
Nothing beats the great outdoors; however, there are a few things that can make it not so enjoyable. Rain, bugs, and the scorching sun are just a few things you’re likely to encounter. Fortunately, outdoor tents come in many shapes and sizes. Those who spend a lot of time outdoors doing multiple activities may need several tents to get the job done. At Survival Frog, we sell three essential tents for emergencies, camping trips, and solo adventures.
Extended Dome Outdoor Tent
A dome tent is a popular tent style because its curved pole structure provides room to stand and move around freely. An extended dome tent is a modified version that is bigger and has multiple rooms to fit more people than the traditional dome tent. The Montana™ 8-Person Tent is an extended dome tent that fits the whole family!
Bivy Sack Outdoor Tent
A bivouac shelter–also known as a bivy tent–is just larger than your sleeping bag. Bivies are a variation of the ridge tent, constructed to shield against the elements. When you’re going on a backpacking trip and need a lightweight shelter, the Solo Bivy Tent 1-Person Backpacking Tent with Rain Fly by Frog & CO is the perfect option.
Tube Outdoor Tent
A tube tent is the smallest outdoor tent, designed to be an emergency shelter. While you hope it never happens to you, getting lost in the woods is not uncommon. With a Ready Shelter Tube Tent 2.0 by Frog & CO in your pack, you don’t have to worry about finding shelter. Simply slide the nylon rope through the tube tent and attach it to anchor points to provide protection for up to two adults.
