Wildland Safety.

Always be prepared for survival situations.

 Be Safe Out There. Driving to the trailhead, hiking along the trail or bushwhacking and camping in the backcountry need some special techniques and good equipment. Keep your tent, sleeping bag, backpack and other gear in tip top condition.

Wildlife needs your respect, especially if you are part of their food chain. Learn to incorporate preventative techniques in your normal routine and you’ll not need to be apprehensive while in bear or cougar country.

Safe drinking water is one of your main concerns. Water filters and water purifiers provide safe and convenient water wherever you are.

To fully enjoy the great outdoors you must feel safe and secure. Whether you're new to the wildlands or have spent several years trammeling about, learning or reviewing safety tips is always beneficial.

Be aware of hypothermia whenever in cool, moist windy situations.

So pack up your tent, sleeping bag, and camping gear on your pack frame and get out there.

Backpacking Camping Tents & More

Need a tent? Spend more time outdoors backpacking and hiking, less time in stores shopping for tents. Buy online.

 

Best Tent? The best tent depends on your needs.

 

Size. Many people choose lightweight backpacking tents that are one person larger than the manufacturer’s design size. A general rule is 15 square feet per person. Basic sizes are: solo, backpacking (2-4 people), or family (4-9 people).

 

Season. A two-season backpacking camping tent is strictly for fair weather use, or for the kids in the back yard where the house is a handy retreat. A three season tent normally will serve well in rainy weather, but heavy snow could be a problem. One rated as four season will be heavier construction, more wind resistant, and have higher grade fabric.

 

Type of use. For casual campers a basic three season tent will usually suffice. A full length fly is important to add some insulation, reduce condensation and wicking during cool/wet weather, Backpackers and high country campers will need to balance the desire for lightweight backpacking tents, versus roominess and convenience. Car campers or long-term campers can choose tents of heavier material, frames and more room.

 

Other considerations. Ground conditions, pole material (aluminum or fiberglass), flooring, clips or sleeves for pole attachment, door location, ease of set-up, and other factors need taken into consideration. Nothing is better than personal experience to guide the tent selection for your use.
