Checklist For 3 Man Tents For Camping

Sensible Planning
  • While 3 man tents can easily accommodate 3 people, it can be difficult with triple luggage. It is usually assumed that there is 14 kg of luggage per person. A 3 man tent is best suited for 2 adults and a child
  • 3 man tents are available starting at 5 kg. An example would be the Coleman tent Blackout with the dimensions 58 x 16 x 16 cm. You are guaranteed to find what you are looking for in our product recommendations
  • Consider beforehand how much space you need and whether you can store your bags, backpacks, or suitcases somewhere else safely and dry.
  • For three people and their luggage you should rather choose a larger tent, e.g. a 4-man tent.
Wind and Weather
  • Not every tent can withstand rain, wind and weather. Make sure you choose a tent with sufficient waterproofing (at least 2000mm, better more)
  • Especially in the rain you don’t want to lose time setting up, with Throw tents you are faster.
  • Tunnel tents are also a good solution, the assembly is faster than, for example, igluförmigen tents and they offer a vestibule for additional luggage.
  • However, it can also be a nice family activity to pitch the tent together.
  • You can choose between different types of tents and colors
  • To your tent you can still choose possible features. For example, an awning in which you can cook in bad weather or store additional luggage.
  • An inner and outer tent is recommended especially in the rain. An inner tent offers additional comfort and provides extra protection from rain. However, more weight is added with an inner tent. The inner tent lies inside the outer tent. The outer tent is more or less a protective cover for the inner tent.
  • The tents also differ in weight and luggage space. There you have to see what is most comfortable for you.
