Shelters

Shelters are basically anything that will protect you from the weather and/or bugs. I have several tents that vary in size and weight. When deciding which shelter is right for you consider the following.

Choose the right shelter for your trip
  • What are the camping options? (Dispersed or Developed)

  • What is the weather forecasted?

  • What is the bug situation?

  • How many people?

  • Dogs?

Single or Double wall?
  • A single-wall tent basically means that the tent has no removable rain fly. It's all one piece.

  • A double-wall tent has a removable rain fly and a mesh tent body.

Freestanding or non-freestanding?
  • A freestanding tent has stand-alone tent poles and doesn't require guy lines.

  • A nonfreestanding tent uses other things for support. Most common is the trekking pole setup that uses guy lines.
