Camping tents, shelters and hammocks











































































































































































Find your perfect tiny nylon home

Nothing feels better than curling up in a cozy place to rest after a long day outside. However you camp, there’s a tent, shelter or hammock to create a home in the great outdoors.

Looking for a tent?

Choosing a tent comes down to what type of camping you’ll be doing – learn more about how to choose a tent.

Car camping tents optimize space and comfort over weight, and typically fit 2 to 6 people for full-family fun. Sometimes roughing it is overrated and you want a tent with room to stand up and multiple doors.

When weight is everything, you’re willing to sacrifice space. Lightweight backpacking tents give you a place to rest your head deep in nature. You'll find a variety of 1- and 2-person tents for solo and small-group outings.

Planning a winter expedition? Look for four-season tents to handle the harsher conditions.

Tarps, shelters and hammocks

Tarps make great ultralight sleeping set ups, and can also double as shelter over picnic tables for car camping. Enclosed shelters have mesh walls to keep out bugs (amazing in summer).

To really save grams, sling up a hammock or roll out a bivy. They’re great on fast and light trips, and pack down small for easy portages and backcountry sojourns.
