Here are the different factors you should consider in finding the right tent for you:
Getting a cheap tent will usually result with inferior quality, the more you pay, the lighter and more durable the tent will be. A poor quality tent won’t last when wild camping. Strong winds, heavy rain, and rough terrain will simply tear your tent to shreds.
Ensure your tent is completely weatherproof, consisting of durable poles to protect against strong winds and waterproof coating to protect against any heavy rain you may encounter.
With wild camping, you never know what type of terrain you’ll be on, so it’s always best to prepare for anything and ensure your tent as a thick durable floor that can withstand jagged and rough terrain.
Wild campers should look for a tent that is as lightweight as possible but also durable enough to withstand the weather and terrain.
If you’re camping alone, get a 1-person tents and if there’s two of you get a 2-person tent, this may sound obvious, however the whole point of wild camping is about saving space and being lightweight.
Try to keep your maximum weight to no more than 3kg, don’t forget you’re going to have all your other gear too, such as sleeping bags and spare clothes.
In order to travel light, you may be a little restricted on space within your tent, so having some spacious internal pockets will help store your gear and give you some extra room in yourtent.
Large vestibule area
Some lightweight tents have a large vestibule area, where you can store your larger items such as your backpack.
A tent porch is another way to save space for your gear, but also a nice area to sit out and admire the beautiful landscapes from your tent.
