Your tent is your home away from home. It has to protect you from the wind and rain, bugs and in some cases from the sun as well. The last thing that you want is to cheap out and have a zipper break in a bug infested woods 3 days hike from civilization. You will not sleep and be miserable.

Look into trusted name brands including North Face, Marmot, Black Diamond just to name a few.

Below is a selection of tents from Moosejaw that are available in the USA. Compare prices and features and select a size that matches your needs. Moosejaw has many more tents than the ones I have selected here although these are some of my favorite.
