How to choose a tent?
Tents are our home away from home and one of the most important elements of any hiking gear, so special care must be taken when choosing one. The difference between a good tent and a bad one may not only be how many years and treks it will last you, but it can also ultimately determine whether you can get through critical moments in the mountains in comfort and safety.
Tents by number of people
Do you prefer to head into the outdoors solo or with your other half? Do you go as a group or as a family? In this respect it's clear, (our) tents are designed for 1-4 people and the choice depends on what your needs are.
But there is one small catch. If you think that buying a tent for three will be a safer choice, even if you're mostly only going outdoors with two of you, it's not going to be such a good idea. Tents have their own weight, and the difference in weight between a two- and three-person tent will be noticeable on a multi-day trek. After all, nobody takes tents on their back for day hikes, and for longer hikes, it's really the place to weigh every single gram, with the tent being the one piece of gear where the weight can be easily accommodated.
In this respect, the tents from our ultra-light Litio collection are a very interesting choice, made of the lightest possible materials while maintaining adequate quality, and for the same reasons having the option to leave the "floor" at home and save the extra grams.
Tents by shape
There are two basic types of tents in our offer - dome and tunnel tents. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, and when choosing a tent it is advisable to consider what exactly your specific needs require.
Tunnel tents are more suitable for longer hikes. Because they don't need such sturdy construction, there's a weight saving, which will keep you happy on longer hikes. They are generally easier to pitch and have larger front walls. On the other hand, unlike dome tents, they don't have as much stability, the space in them is specifically for sleeping rather than relaxing.
Dome tents are the exact opposite - they are a bit heavier and more difficult to pitch, but they provide more space, are more stable and you can pitch them even on worse terrain.
You can also opt for a hybrid, in our case our flagship Lofoten 2. This tent offers the benefits of both worlds, and in case you weren't convinced of its quality - this tent has also conquered the world's second-highest mountain and withstood a snowstorm just a few hundred vertical meters below the summit of Everest.
Tents by season
When it comes to seasonality, our tents are divided into two categories - three-season and all-season. The one season that is missing behind the name "tri-seasonal" is winter.
In this case, it's clear - if you go camping in winter, a year-round tent is an obvious choice. It provides extra protection against the elements, but that's reflected in the weight and price. Three-season tents are made of lighter materials and don't require as strong a structure, so they're lighter overall and also more affordable.
