2021 Tent Buying Guide

We manually pulled over 150 listings from six retailers to create this guide on which type of tent to buy, where to buy, and what to consider when buying a tent next year!
After examining the data, we were surprised to see:

  • Lower average price for backpacking tents than other types (likely driven by the small capacity of backpacking tents compared to the availability of 12 person car camping models)
  • Amazon is the only retailers which carries all types of tents included in the analysis but only provides the best value for instant tents
  • Most retailers that offer mountain tents do not offer instant tent models and vice-versa

Additional Data Information:

  • Collected in Late November and Early December 2020 through manual crawling of Amazon, Walmart, Target, Bass Pro Shops, REI, & LL Bean
  • Tents included in the inventory were limited to those with a rating of 3.5 stars or higher out of 5.0
