If you and your friends are planning on going someplace to camp, you will need to get yourself the adequate tools, gadgets, and gear for the trip, and there is no single item more important than the tent that you will be living in when you are there. Camping can be a great activity and a great way to feel closer to nature, but without the right gear and protection, its a death trap waiting to happen. So for this reason we will be talking about tents and what you should look for in the one you buy.
So there are a couple of things you should compare the tents you want on. First look at where you are going and see if the tent is one that is suitable for that environment. If you are in a rainy area or are near a river or lake, you might want waterproof and splash proof camping tent. On the other hand if you are going to the mountains and plan on facing rough terrain then you might want a tent that is durable and can sustain its shape and comfort even in rougher and rockier areas as well as hold off against gusts of wind that are prominent in these areas.
You are also going to have to consider what your transport and movement ability throughout the trip will be. You have to remember that everything you take with you also needs to be carried by you. Get a tent that is easy enough to carry in the place that you are going but also look at trying to find a tent that is easy to set up and also easy to pack up again if you plan on being on the move throughout the trip.
