Dome Tent: Large Family Camping Tents & Lightweight Backpacking Tents

A dome tent is a popular camping tent style that is made up of two or more intersecting hoops that combine to form a free-standing tent structure. A simple dome tent has a square or rectangular base and four poles, but dome tents can include a number of additional poles creating more complex designs including hexagons or octagons. Dome tents are available in large family size camping tents such as six person or seven person tents as well as small backpacking dome tents for two or three people. Because of its simple design, a basic dome tent can withstand strong winds making it a great design for four-season tents. Dome tents can include durable fiberglass or lightweight aluminum poles. At Superior Outdoorsman, we supply dome tents in a wide variety of sizes and styles including lightweight backpacking dome tents and durable and spacious family dome tents.

Buying the Best Dome Tent

When you are buying a dome tent there are a number of important considerations to make in order to buy the best tent for your needs. Whether you decide on a small, compact, and lightweight dome tent for backpacking or hiking or a large dome tent for family or group camping trips, it is important to buy the type of tent that best fits your camping style. The following are some of the important considerations to make when you are buying a dome tent from our selection of discount camping tents.

  • Size: The size tent that you will need depends on the number of people who will most often be sleeping in your dome tent. In general, you may want to buy a tent that is made for an additional one or two people more than will usually sleep in the tent to allow for gear storage and space to move about inside the tent.
  • Weight: Weight is not always a concern when buying a dome tent. However, if you plan to hike or backpack while carrying your tent, then every additional pound will count, and therefore, you will want to buy a lightweight backpacking tent. In general, not only will tent size increase the weight of a tent, but the number of poles as well as the pole material can also influence the tent weight. If you are buying a tent for backpacking, you should consider buying a smaller one or two person dome tent made with lightweight aluminum poles.
  • Breathability: When buying a dome tent, you will want to buy a tent that offers proper ventilation. This will not only make the tent more comfortable in a variety of seasons, but will also prevent condensation build up inside the tent over night.
  • Other Special Features: Some of the other special options to consider when you are buying a dome camping tent can include features such as two room tent dividers and attached screen rooms. These features bring some of the comforts of home to the outdoors and can be useful on leisurely family camping trips or when camping with larger groups.
