3 Person Tents

Planning a camping trip together with your two best friends? It’s a good idea to share a 3 person tent, since it’s a great way to save weight and take more exciting items with you, such as a camping table and a stove. What is more, you’ll save a lot of time and effort when three of you take part in pitching one tent.

3 person tents are an ideal solution for a myriad of activities including fishing trips with your best mates, relaxed camping with your family, music festivals, and more. 

How to Choose a 3 Man Camping Tent

So you’ve decided to get a 3p tent. Where to start? The market offers a plethora of options to choose from. However, too much choice usually means confusion. To make the process of choosing your 3p tent easier, we’ve prepared a couple of useful tips. 

When are you going to use your tent?

Before you buy a 3 man tent, think which season you’re going to use it in. Summer tents are made of lightweight material and have a lot of ventilation. Obviously, they are inappropriate for harsh conditions. 3 season tents aren’t that lightweight but more likely to survive rain and wind. However, if you think of winter camping, a 4 season tent is the best solution. It will protect you against high winds and heavy snowfalls and keep you warm in the cold weather. With mosquito nets and ventilation options, 4 season tents are good for the summer as well.

How easy is the tent to set up?

You don’t want to spend hours putting up your tent, right? If you’re buying a tent from a physical store, try to set it upright in the shop. However, lots of purchases are made online today since it really saves a lot of time. The good news is that YouTube has plenty of videos of people pitching the tents of multiple types. Just find the tent you consider buying, or a similar one, and watch the video. You’ll see how the tent works and be able to estimate how easy it’s to set up. 

Which material is the best 3 person tent made of?

The two main options include cotton and nylon. Tents made from cotton are waterproof although they get very heavy when the water is absorbed. However, they are rather durable and long-lasting. Nylon tents are waterproof as well, but they are vulnerable to sunlight. It’s up to you to decide which one you’d prefer. 

How much should your 3p tent weigh? 

Think if you’ll need to carry your tent large distances. If yes, opt for a more lightweight 3 person backpacking tent. Still, keep in mind that its sleeping capacity will be exactly as stated in the description, and it will be able to accommodate no more than three people in sleeping bags with the minimum elbow room. On the other hand, if you're going to take your 3p tent out of the car, the weight doesn’t really matter.

Which additional features should you look for?

  • Go for a tent which offers better ventilation features.

  • For a three-person tent, it’s great when it has two entrances: you’ll avoid scrambling over somebody else.

  • Make sure your 3p tent has enough storage pockets.

  • Finally, pick up a tent with available accessories, like a footprint or a tent stove.
