Tents by Size
1 Man Tents
These one man tents are designed and sized to house one person – usually designed to be both lightweight and portable for expeditioners or backpackers (or a Billy No Mates)! Ultra quick to pitch, one man tents can also be useful as emergency shelters if caught in a storm!
2 Man Tents
Two man tents are sized and designed to sleep two people and range from ultra lightweight backpacking tents through to a stand-up weekender. Please pay close attention to the dimensions, weight and pack-size of these 2-man tents to make sure you choose the right one for your needs.
3 Man Tents
Our 3-man tent range runs the spectrum from Duke of Edinburgh backpacking tents through to touring tents and on to small family weekenders. A lot of 3-man tents are also chosen by couples who just want that extra bit of space for storage or a bit of a cooking and/or living area.
4 Man Tents
Designed to sleep four people, our 4-man tents cover a large cross-section and design of tent. There are compact backpacking and touring tents in this range but it also goes up to fairly large 4-man family camping tents that you are able to stand-up in and are comfortable for a full week of camping.
5 Man Tents
These 5-man tents are designed to sleep 4-5 people in comfort. The vast majority of tents this size has stand-up head height and somewhere to call a living area for cooking, sitting or equipment storage. Please read the descriptions of the 5-man tents carefully to ensure you choose the right size for your needs.
6 Man Tents
Tents that sleep 6-people will invariably have ample head height and sleeping options. The bedrooms will have dividers or be located in different parts of the tent so that they offer a bit more in the way of privacy. Prices of 6-man tents will vary a lot which is down materials used and quality of construction.
7 Man Tents
Designed to sleep seven people – usually in a 2+3+2 bedroom formation – 7-man tents are actually very popular with 4-person families (2 adults, 2 children) as they are then assured of their own bedrooms with ample space in each. 7-man tents are starting to get seriously big and heavy so make sure you can cope!
8 Man Tents
Still one of the most popular tent size options for family camping. The 8-person tent traditionally has 4 people sleeping at one end of the tent and four at the opposite end (in a vis-à-vis formation) for plenty of privacy. The large dimensions of 8-man tents will typically allow for plenty of living and storage space.
9+ Man Tents
These 9 + berth tents are great for groups, large families or those that just want lots of space. The dimensions of these tents are truly voluminous and so there’s plenty of space for your camping furniture (and the kitchen sink). After 2 weeks of camping you may actually get to know your way around the place!
