Best Summer Camping Tents in 2022

MSR Camping Tent

There is nothing like waking up in the wilderness, unzipping the tent door, smelling last nights fire and looking at the beautiful scenery surrounding your tent.

Camping can also turn pretty ugly, pretty fast - soggy sleeping bags, flapping rain flys and a heavy tent in your backpack can ruin a camping experience. Thats why it's crucial to choose a tent thats right for what you need.  

When looking for the best camping tent you want to think about how you will use your tent.

Backpacking Tent

2022 MSR Hubba Hubba Tent with tent fly and door open


MSR Hubba Hubba 2 Person Tent

If light weight backpacking is the aim of the game, this is the small tent for you. With a focus on being lightweight and packable the hubba hubba is an award winning classic for a reason. We love how small this backpacking tent packs up. You can really shrink your backpack size down using this tent.

It's a 3 season backpacking tent, meaning it will withstand even the harshest of rain the west coast will throw at you. However, it would be happy during the winter at tree line with low wind and if there isn't huge snowfall.

It has a large vestibule making cooking with your jetboil easy with ample storage space. The hubba hubba comes with virtually indestructible poles and long-lasting waterproof coating keeping you protected if the weather goes south.

It's the backpacking tent you've always dreamed of.
