    What types of tent are there?

    Thanks to extensive developments in product design and manufacture, there are now more types of tent than ever previously available. We've highlighted the top variations that you should be aware of, and discuss the benefits of each style.

    Types of Tent

  • Pop-Up Tents - These tents can be erected in just seconds. They typically have a frame that "pops" into shape, and requires a twisting motion to take down. Typically low cost, and rather small - these tents are best suited for kids or festivals.
  • Backpacking / Trekking Tents - If you are looking for something lightweight and practical for long expeditions, a trekking tent can be ideal. They are usually designed for no more than 2 occupants, and have a relatively small footprint. These tents are usually rather low to the ground, and are designed to offer a simple, lightweight and easily transportable shelter against all types of weather. They are designed to withstand high winds and rain.
  • Dome Tents - A dome tent is a style of tent, usually consisting of at least two poles forming a dome in the centre of the tent. Offering a decent level of headroom, these tents are particularly popular with couples and small families. Their simple design has cemented them as one of the most popular and affordable styles of tent today.
  • Tunnel Tents - If you are finding a Dome Tent a little too crowded, it's logical to step up to a Tunnel Tent instead. These tents are built around a series of curved poles that create a "tunnel". Offering the occupants more floor space and headroom, these tents are ideal for larger families staying on campsites.
  • Vis–à–Vis - These tents are increasingly popular with families. They consist of two separate sleeping areas (also known as bedrooms or sleeping pods) which face one another. The middle of the tent is then used as a communal area for relaxing or cooking.
  • Bell Tents - An increasingly popular style of tent thanks to the growth of the Glamping market. These tents are stylish, but are costly, and extremely heavy in many instances.
  • Inflatable Tents - As the title suggests, these tents are erected not with metal or fibreglass poles, but instead with high-pressure air beams to form the structure. Extremely quick and easy to pitch, these tents offer the ultimate in ease of use for all campers. One person can erect an air tent on their own without any issues.
  • Top Tips for Choosing the Perfect Tent

    Look out for these phrases and features when you are selecting a tent:

  • Berth - This is the number of people that your tent is designed to sleep. This number does not usually factor in any luggage or other gear, so it is prudent to select a tent that has a berth 1-2 higher than the number of desired occupants.
  • Sewn-In Groundsheet - This style of groundsheet is quickly becoming the standard in tents. It ensures that the tent stays dry, and stops any creepy-crawlies from getting in. The design also removes the risk of drafts that is prevalent in tents without a sewn-in groundsheet.
  • Hydrostatic Head / Waterproof Rating - Look for a tent that has a minimum PU rating of 1000. This is the minimum rating at which a tent can be called waterproof. The higher the rating, the higher protection you will have from the rain.
  • Fibreglass Poles - Most tents will now come with fibreglass poles, unless you of course opt for an inflatable tent. These poles are lighter than traditional materials, and are also incredibly strong. Some larger tents are only available with steel poles thanks to their extra strength.
