2019’s Best Tents

4 Tents That Will Make You Feel Like You’re Not Sleeping in a Tent

All campers know the one thing you don’t want to skimp on when you’re an adventurer is your tent. This week we’re going to look at four of the best in 2019. Camping and backpacking tents have come a long way, so if you’re still using your patchwork canvas from the 1980s it’s probably time to upgrade. Let’s look at some new tents that will make you feel like you’re at home and cozy rather than in the rugged outdoors.




REI Co-op Kingdom 6

$439, REI.com

This is the highest-rated tent on SwitchBackTravel.com, and for good reason. The spaciousness the Kingdom 6 provides is perfect for families on the go, and the Kingdom comes in four, six and eight-person capacities. REI certainly knows what it’s doing when it comes to camping, and it doesn’t get much better than the Kingdom.

Marmot Limestone 4P

$359, REI.com



Another spacious camping tent, the Marmot Limestone is easy to pitch and weather-resistant. For the high percentage of people who only camp during the summer, the Marmot is perfect. You can also upgrade to the Marmot Halo for an even more element-resistant tent.

Backpacking Tents

Nemo Dagger 2P

$400, REI.com

Weighing just 3 pounds, 5 ounces, the Nemo Dagger is the perfect backpacker’s tent. Nemo has added 10% more space to an already roomy interior and includes two doors and spacious vestibules for gear storage. You can’t go wrong backpacking with this tent.

Big Agnes Copper Spur UL3

$500, REI.com

Big Agnes’ Copper Spur helped define the category of backpacking tent, and the most recent version comes in 1-4 person varieties. The ultra-lightweight design makes it easy to take on any backpacking trip and it’s extremely durable. At 41 square feet on the inside, there is plenty of room.
