Since the beginning of time, people have enjoyed sleeping outdoors under the stars.  Whether you are on an expedition that will have you sleeping outside in rough terrain and weather, or whether you are camping in the backyard with your kids, you'll need an appropriate camping tent.

Camping tents are available in a range of sizes, and are rated for a variety of weather and camping experiences, from tents that are perfect for family camping, to more sophisticated tents geared to extreme camping.

A well-designed tent should prevent moisture from getting inside; it should also breathe to prevent condensation from building up inside.  A double wall tent keeps moisture outside by using a rain fly, and it has breathable tent walls.  A single wall tent does both of these things with a single, laminated tent wall that is both waterproof and breathable.

Basic types of camping tents include summer tents, three-season tents, and four-season tents as well as mountaineering tents and specialized single-wall tents.  Summer tents are designed for warm weather use, while three season tents are designed for use in cooler weather.  Four season tents, or convertible tents, can be used in cold weather, while mountaineering tents are designed for harsh, windy conditions.  Ultralight, single-wall tents are favored by backpackers, but they do not shed moisture as well as most double-wall tents.
