tents

    Has anyone used a 2 person pup tent without the poles? It looks like someone could string a guideline through both ends of the end and use that guideline to support the tent rather than poles. Reason for this? Be able to reduce the size of the tent down as much as it can without the poles...

    Examples of tents kept in a bug out bag. I am not endorsing or recommending any brandname, make or model. This is about examples only. Wenzel starlite tent - I bought my wenzel starlite tent sometime in the mid-1990s. At 20 years old and after dozens of camping trips it does not have a...

    I'd like to restrict my inquiry to strictly "tents" (not campers or camper shells). I've got an F-150 and I'm not really asking this in the vain of a BOV use, but more along the lines of a weekend camping or hunting trip-type thing. I'm thinking one of these things would at least allow ya to...

    Take your tent and equipment out into the wilderness away from a lot of everyday life and spend a few days? I got into a talk with an old friend today about this, she said that with the way the world/country is right now she will never go out in the wilderness camping again for fear of some...

    If you wanted a three or four season tent to keep in a vehicle or trailer in case you had to bug out. What brand or type of tent would you own. For two to three people.

    I was hoping to get some thoughts on what you think about quality tents and sleeping bags. What do you look for when purchasing these items? Are there durable, all season types?

    Some wonderful person decided that they no longer wanted this tent and let me have for the amazing price of free. I love people who give me great free stuff! Cabela's Outback Lodge I received the 10x10 version which will make a perfect fishing/hunting base camp. So keep your eye out people...

    I am looking to learn how to make my own shelter. I am also looking for a tent or other shelter that is light weight, can stand up to abuse, and can fit two people. I am 6'3 235 pounds so I need a somewhat larger shelter. The shelter must be water and wind proof. I want something that will hold...

    Does something like this exist? -3-season tent, needs to be fairly rain-proof around these parts with good ventilation for the heat -large enough to fit a family of four plus a dog or two (2 growing boys and a 6' tall dad make me think we need to go with a 6-person for comfort). -sturdy (our...

    i have started to look into hammock tents, as the terrain i am in certainly merits this type of cover. how many utilize these and are they worth the money. also how are they compared to a standard tent setup?

    After about 15 years of use, I decided it was time to retire my Wenzel Starlight tent. The replacement had to be light-weight, fit into an medium alice pack, easy to strap to the top or bottom of a pack, easy to setup, easy to take down, good for hot weather camping, bug proof,,,,,, just the...

    I am looking to buy a high-quality tent that would be big enough for four adults. I am planning on camping during summer time (not sure if that makes a difference). My plan is to keep it for a long time (forever if possible), so I am prepared to spend money on a quality product. Thanks in...

    I'd love to be able to afford one of those awesome ultra-lightweight backpacking tents, but our $$ does not allow for that right now. Gotta feed our 2 kids & keep a roof over our heads. A few months ago, I saw one of Kev's videos that he posted on these boards about prepping with the resources...

    Trying to pick up a 4-Season, 2 person tent this spring to get me through the summer and get comfortable with for next winter. I've been saving for a while. So, I was wondering how much value you get with "higher end" tents like the MSR Fury or Black Diamond (Bibler) Ahwahnee. Thanks in...
