What to Look For in 2 Person Tents
Looking for the best 2 person tent? It can be a really tough job to study all the specifications, weigh the pros and cons of each product, and make sure you’ll get the best value. Here’s some advice to make your choice easier. Let’s jump right in.
Hunting for camping tents should always start with a question: “How much am I ready to spend?” You might be short of money right now, but our recommendation is to prioritize quality and be ready to spend the few extra bucks to buy the best camping tent you can afford. In the long run, good quality and durable tent will save your money. You may save a little money by buying a cheaper option now, however, you might be very disappointed later if it doesn’t survive even a couple of fair weather trips.
Decide which category of a 2p tent you’ll need
Two person tents can be divided into two basic categories: backpacking and car camping.
If you plan to carry your tent on or in your backpack, then you need a 2 person backpacking tent. It is lighter, yet it’s less spacious than a camping tent. Camping tents are heavier, however, their weight doesn’t really matter as they are typically taken out of a car and pitched within a short walking distance.
Consider the weather you’re going to use your two-person tent in
If you intend to use your tent mostly in the heat of the summer, ventilation should be your primary concern. However, even if you want to camp in cold weather just occasionally, it’s a good idea to pick up a 2 man 4 season tent.
Choose the tent design
There are several different kinds of tents. Basic designs include A-frame, dome, cabin, and tunnel tents. Speaking of 2 man tents, they are typically dome or cabin types. So what's the difference between the two? A cabin tent has a ceiling that slowly descends from the center point, allowing for more headroom inside of the tent. With a dome tent, the ceiling slopes down more sharply from the center, leaving you less headroom.

🏕 What size tent should I get for two people?
- As a rule of thumb, each person needs at least 20 square feet of floor space for comfortable sleeping. However, take this suggestion as the absolute minimum size when selecting a tent. Also, keep in mind that a tent that comes as a two-person one is designed for two people using sleeping bags. So if you want to bring camping beds or use a stove inside your tent, opt for a bigger shelter.
📦 What size air mattress fits in a 2 person tent?
- It depends on the dimensions of your 2-person tent, which can vary across different producers. So make sure you check the dimensions of your tent floor to get air mattresses that will fit into your shelter.
💡 Is it possible to place a wood stove in a 2 person tent?
- Yes (if it’s equipped with a stove jack, of course). But remember that with a stove, there will be space left only for one person sleeping on a camp bed or in a sleeping bag. So if there are two of you, go for a bigger option.
❓ Is a tarp better than a tent?
- No, never. A tarp is just a single skin sheet of material. Although lightweight and budget-friendly, it can’t provide sufficient protection from the elements and it won’t protect you from insects and snakes.
