Hit the Trails With A Backpacking Tent

Find unbeatable shelter on the trails with backpacking tents that combine a light pack weight with all-weather protection and easy setup. Head out on every excursion with a hassle-free backpack tent built for your journey. You can also check out all tents and canopies from DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Backpacking tents are commonly available with two kinds of entryways: vestibules and doors. Lightweight tents often feature doors for a streamlined design. Vestibules are extended areas of the tent used to store gear outside of the sleeping area, and offer a protected entryway into the tent.

Go where the journey takes you in a tent that delivers superior protection and functionality. Turn to top brands such as The North Face®, Eureka!®, and Marmot for the trusted quality you expect in a backpacking tent.

If you're not planning to be mobile on your trip, perhaps consider a full-sized camping tent that is ideal for multiple people or shop all tents from DICK'S.

Buying Tips

Consider the environment and terrain of your excursion when selecting the right tent for you.

Make the most of your trip: Think about weather expectations for the journey, design features, ease of set-up and carrying, when shopping for the right tent. Due to their compact design, backpacking tents often provide a smaller sleeping space than other tent models. Assume a close fit and seek a tent with additional sleeping area and space for gear if desired.

Choose a tent with a water-resistant finish and weather-blocking construction for maximum protection if you are headed into wet weather conditions.

Expert Advice

Many backpackers opt for three-season tents that are suitable for weather conditions in spring, autumn and summer. If you're looking to journey out primarily in summer months, seek out a tent with additional ventilation and mesh paneling to combat humid summer nights.

Never feel weighed down by your backpacking tent on your hikeľ ensure your tent is easy to carry. Look for a tent that meets but does not exceed your space requirements to keep pack weight as low as possible.
