Ultimate Tent Compendium

While researching for my backpack load out I found there was a serious issue when really looking to compare tents to each other and to see at a glance what they offered and what they didn’t have.

I took it then as a sign from the hiker trash gods that I should take the time to consolidate as many options as I can find into a single reference for myself and others to be able to find the right match as a glance instead of pouring hours into a search.

If you find I am missing something please just contact me and let me know and I will work to add, if you have a link to the product it will help me make sure to grab all the best content from the vendor themselves!

If looking for additional gear we have a full list of our compendiums over here.
