Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.
Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.
For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.
Domes, Tunnels and Sacks
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.
Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

- My Second Coleman Tent
I use this tent for short stays (weekends). My 12 and 10 year old have set it up. We have used it in the rain and wind. I was always dry and comfortable for 3 adults plus their bags. You can put 4 people in it. A 6ft young man also found he had enough room. It is well made with good instructions....more info
- tent for two not for three or four
If you like a lot of free space when you sleep then this tent is good for two people only. But for a family of three may work out too, but not for three adults. ...more info
- cheap tent, good for safe camping
I bought this tent at the discount store for 35$, about what it is worth.
I am an old camper and needed to replace my old car camp tent. Coleman is the bottom of the line, quality wise and I knew this.
Plus side, it is very roomy and comfortable for one person, air bed, two shelties, and chair when it rains. takes about 7-10 causal mins to put up, poles are shock corded.
good bathtub floor. two doors is nice.
poles are very thin and flimsy, metal ends that hold poles in place are too short.( use clips to hold while you run around and put the thing up)
Impossible to put up in rain and keep tent dry.
Rain fly is too skimpy for the NW, I took along a blue tarp and rope and it rained and the wind blew....needed all that rope and extra stakes.
Not stable in wind, rope stablizers are flimsy.
This would be a great tent for dry, no wind conditions, most likely last a few short years.
I will keep mine , but always, always take tarp and rope for support.
If you camp in adverse conditions, buy a better tent.
a year later, this tent has done alright, with a few stakes, and the extra tarp we have kept dry in a few NW storms, SO IT HAS DONE WELL AND I LIKE IT MUCH BETTER AFTER YEAR OF CAMPING.no buying regrets....more info
