Give the gift of shelter this holiday, and check out these tents for gifts to give the camper on your list.
I’ve heard that most people don’t like getting rained on, and I’m guessing you’d prefer that your loved ones aren’t laying out in the cold. Try killing both birds this holiday season with some of these nifty tents.
Take a look at the suggestions for the ideal tents this holiday season.
Sky Tent 2 Bunk Hammock
God bless the genius who combined your two favorite kinds of beds. The Sky Tent 2 from Hammock Bliss is not the most rugged or high performance option, but that’s hardly the point.
HEIMPLANET Cave Geodesic Dome
NEMO Gogo Elite
Nemo’s Gogo Elite is a great gift for mountaineers and hardcore trekkers. Between its small size and light, inflatable frame, it’s perfect for saving ounces.
While all of the above are pretty cool, there’s nothing wrong with a classic. Coleman updates the tried and true dome tent with improved materials and an electric access port.
Big Agnes Big House 6 with Vestibule
If you happen to need a vestibule, I don’t think they come much larger than the Big Agnes Big House 6. Great for base camping. Check out the doormat!
The Hilleberg Jannu is an impressively engineered mountaineering tent. Sturdy, light, and compact, it’s equipped to go basically anywhere.
Terra Nova Solar 2
Terra Nova claims that the Solar 2 is the world’s lightest self-supporting two-person tent. But they would say that, wouldn’t they? Still, campers have been impressed, and it comes highly recommended.
NEMO Veda 2P Trekking Pole Tent
The Veda 2P by Nemo makes great use of the trekking pole frame.
Big Agnes Wyoming Trail 4
The Wyoming Trail 4 from Big Agnes would be a pretty standard base camp tent if not for its nifty privacy feature. The two separate sleeping areas are separated by a common vestibule that can be used for gear storage, or as an outdoor living room.
Rightline Pop-Up Tent
I’m a little skeptical of the pop-up tent as a serious camping tool, but Rightline’s models are the best there are. It’s a good place to start if you’re interested in trying it out.
Black Diamond Deluxe Cliff Cabana
The Cliff Cabana sleeps two, and won’t plummet to a rocky death. Ready for a romantic evening hanging over a gaping abyss?
Hyperlite Mountain Gear UltraMid
The most expensive tarp you will ever buy. In its defense, the UltraMid 2 is a really, really good tarp.
