If you’re new to camping and you’re not sure what type of tent you should choose, or what some of the technical jargon even means, then we’re here to help. Below, we’ll go through some of the things to consider when choosing a tent.

What size tent do I need?

A tent's size is measured in how many people it can sleep side by side in its bedroom compartment, so a 6 man tent would sleep 6 people side by side. What this sizing doesn’t take into account is your camping equipment, your storage or your luggage.
For a comfortable time while camping we would recommend always choosing at least one size up on the number of people camping. Family of four? You’ll have a comfortable break in a 6 man tent. Couple of friends at a festival? It’ll be less cramped if you choose a 3 or 4 man tent.

What type of tent do I need?

Different styles of camping will often call for different styles of tent. If you’re heading out into the hills with your backpack for a night under the stars, then you wouldn’t want a heavy tent, whereas if you’re opting for camping as a summer holiday, you’ll want a little more space to relax, even if you’re going alone. Some of the tents you’ll find at Decathlon include:

Pop Up Tents

Pop up tents are ideal for festivals and short breaks away on a campsite. They’re especially suited to those camping alone or who perhaps don’t like the idea of pitching a standard tent. All you need to do is throw out a pop up tent and peg it down, and you’re ready to camp. Simple.

Inflatable Tents

Inflatable tents are another great option for those who aren’t confident in pitching a standard tent. On these tents the traditional poles have been replaced by beams that you inflate to make the tent stand up. Don’t be fooled into thinking that makes them weak either, when fully inflated these tents are rigid and the biggest benefit is that there is no danger of a pole snapping in strong winds. Inflatable tents are quick to pitch with the help of an electric pump or foot pump.

Blackout Tents

One the more recent innovations in camping are darkened bedrooms. Depending on the brand this can be referred to as blackout, eclipse etc. Here at Decathlon the technology we use is called ‘Fresh & Black’. This means that your bedrooms are darker to help you (and especially little kids) sleep past first light, while also helping to keep the tent feeling cooler in the heat. Top tip: they can also be great for getting some day-time naps in at festivals.

Backpacking Tents

For camping traditionalists, the idea of camping is to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and head into the wilderness. This is often known as ‘wild camping’ and sees the camper packing all they need for their trip into their rucksack. This means that the equipment required needs to be lightweight and compact. Backpacking tents are often low profile tents designed for tackling strong winds and sleeping 1 or 2 people.

Before you go camping

Before your first camping trip in a new tent, always practice pitching your tent at home or in a local field. Doing this is not only a good way to practice pitching it and putting it away, but it also allows you to check for any issues or missing pieces before you head away on your break.


Happy Camping!
