A-Frame Tents vs. Cabin Tents vs. Pop-Up Tents
There are a few popular styles of tents – each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Before you choose, here are some considerations of three popular options, A-frame tents, cabin tents and dome tents.
- An A-Frame tent is the classic, triangular tent that resembles the letter 'A'. These are easy to haul and assemble, like the Stansport Scout 2-Person Nylon A-Frame Tent, which is just under four pounds.
- Cabin tents are the most spacious, thanks to their vertical walls and dome-shaped ceiling. The Clam Outdoor Cabin Screen Tent, for instance, has a generous footprint of 112 square feet.
- Dome tents are the most common, thanks to their ideal shape and versatility. You can’t go wrong with something like a Coleman 4-Person Sundome® Dome Camping Tent, great for a couple or the whole family.
Qualities Of A Trusty Tent
You should consider the particular qualities of a given tent so you know you can trust it, whether you’re on a solo trip in the wilderness or setting up a backyard sleepover for your kids. Research the following specs before making a final decision:
- Cold protection
- Air flow
- Frame material
Besides a tent, what other items will make my camping experience more comfortable?
Don’t forget a trusty sleeping bag that will keep you warm and cozy while spending a night outdoors. Of course, there are many other camping accessories to consider, from cooking utensils to firestarters to water filters and so much more.
What do I use a screen tent for?
Screen tents are great for setting up an airy but protected space at your campsite. They are normally used side-by-side with a sleeping tent, rather than as a replacement.
