Seasoned campers will want a different experience than first-time campers. From the sleeping bags they pack to the tents they carry, there will be specific needs for each kind of camper. Also, the kind of equipment that is needed for any outdoor adventure will vary depending on the way you want to experience the wilderness. The most important part of any camper’s expedition is the camping tent. By it you will draw nearer to the vast wild and by it you will either wake rejuvenated for another day or toss and turn restlessly. Owning the right tent is key to enjoying time under the stars.
Whether it is a guy’s weekend or the family’s first camping trip purchasing the right 3 man tent is the safest, most efficient way to enjoy the outdoors. Most of the major wilderness equipment suppliers carry the three man version and it is the most popular seller even for solo goers. Selecting the best fit can be determined by a few simple questions: What season will the camping take place? What outdoor pests will need to be defended against? How close to nature does the camper want to feel? Each tent will accomplish these goals in differing ways.
