Step 1: Determine head count Determine the number of people that will sleep in your tent. If you plan to store gear in the tent with you, you may want to buy a bigger tent. Step 2: Determine seasonal use Determine during which seasons you will use the tent. Check for ventilation and a rain fly so you are prepared for hot or wet weather that may roll in. Tip Tents are classified as two-, three-, or all-season and vary in price based on these classifications. Step 3: Choose tent style Choose the tent style based on usage. If you are a primitive camper, then you will want a backpacking tent rather than a heavy-duty family tent. Step 4: Check the waterproofing and zippers Check all seams for waterproofing and the zippers for durability. The base of the tent should be made of a tarp-like material and should wrap up the walls of the tent at least 4 inches, if not more. Step 5: Check the poles and material Check the poles and tent material. If the fabric or poles are cheaply made, your tent won't last more than one or two seasons. Step 6: Choose a tent Choose a tent that is reasonably priced and meets all of your needs. Check online to compare prices before heading out to the store to buy your new wilderness abode.
