There are a lot of pros and cons when it comes to buying a tent. For hikers like myself, you may prefer a the lightened weight of a smaller tent to the room you get from a larger one. But there’s more to it than just comfort: safety will also play a big role in the decision.
Obviously the tent you will ended up choosing will depend what activities you’ll be doing, what time of year you’ll be doing them, and what part of the country you’ll be doing them in. Instead of going into all the different things you should think about here, the video below will hit on a number of considerations you should make before purchasing your perfect tent.
I hope this helped point you in the right direction. Stay safe and happy trails!
