    Camp in comfort

    Find your home away from home for multi-day backcountry trips or family camping weekends on warm summer nights. No matter where you’re headed, your tent should be a place to feel secure, cozy, and most importantly, well rested. There’s plenty to consider before you decide – learn tips on how to choose a tent.

    Lightweight or luxe

    First up when choosing a tent: the size of your crew. Family of four? Just you and your partner? Or going solo? Luckily, MEC has a wide range of tents and shelters, so you can set up camp in the great outdoors with the whole family or with an ultra-light solo set-up.


    Another consideration is the weather and environment you’ll be camping in. Rain, wind and even snow can happen to every camper at some point, so it’s best to be prepared with a tent that can withstand the elements. Look for tents with waterproof floors and flies (the roof of your tent) to feel safe, snug and dry during a storm.

    Extra features that make a difference

    Our tents are so much more than just simple shelters. Some come with vestibules to be a miniature mudroom or storage section for your packs, and others come prepped with pockets and organizers so you don’t lose track of small items like your glasses or headlamp.
