Checklist Trekking Tent

Size And Weight
  • Consider in advance how many people should fit in the tent.
  • If you value coziness in the tent, you should include an additional person for the size. If you want to camp alone, you should still choose a 2-person tent.
  • If you often want to make long hiking tours with the tent, a tent with a low weight of 2 to 4 kilograms is the best decision. For strenuous tours, an ultralight tent that weighs only 500 to 1500 grams is also suitable.
Material And Quality
  • If you want to camp in particularly difficult weather conditions, you should pay attention to robust materials of the poles, such as carbon, aluminum, steel, or titanium.
  • For occasional camping in average weather conditions, a tent made of polyamide is perfectly adequate. If you often camp in the rain or in high sunlight, tent fabric made of nylon or polyester is optimal.
  • Single-wall tents are particularly light, but condensation quickly collects in them. Accordingly, they must be aired frequently to prevent mold.
  • Double-walled tents are heavier and more complex to erect, but always stay dry inside and have better air circulation inside.
  • Fully waterproof is a tent with a water column of 4800 milliliters and more, while tents with a water column of 1500 milliliters for occasional use already sufficiently protect against rain and snow.
Handling And Comfort
  • A single-wall tent is more suitable for particularly easy pitch ing.
  • Make sure with a one-person tent that you can easily and intuitively set up the tent on your own.
  • If there are several entrances on the tent, this facilitates ventilation and comfort. The more entrances there are, the more important it is to have high quality workmanship.
  • If you want to camp in nature in the summer, a tent with additional mosquito nets is a good choice.
  • Further comfort is provided by windows or a covered entrance area, among other things.
