Solitary excursions can get you in touch with your inner zen and one-on-one with the Great Outdoors, but trekking out into the unknown, hitting the overnight festival, or just hiking out somewhere waterside with a friend can be just as satisfying. Here are the best great two-person tents to consider for your next two-party adventure.
Perfect for warmer weather
This tent is all about simple-setup in 10 minutes or less. The fiberglass frame is shock-corded poles, which slip together seamlessly and thread through designated loops on the tent in a snap. The mesh ground vents at the base of the tent push stuffy air upward and out through the large windows, so you don’t feel stuffy even in warm temperatures.
Stands up to bad weather
Staying cool, comfortable, and out of the sun makes for good sleep and a two-party camping trip that’s far more enjoyable. This tent is aptly outfitted with dual layers of polyester material, which makes it totally waterproof, windproof, and UV-proof. The roomy interior is just sizable enough for two and delivers breathability with large mesh panels at the top and a removable rainfly.
Weights just 2.75 pounds
If you’re trekking your way through the wilderness, a lightweight tent is everything. The Wakeman Outdoors tent weighs just at 2.75 pounds and folds down into a small carry bag but offers enough roominess for two adults to sleep comfortably. As an added bonus, this tent has an equipped waterproof rainfly and interior storage.
Turn the rainfly into awning
Tents feel much less crowded when you have an open view and a door on each side for access, and that’s what the Clostnature two-person tent provides. The full-mesh walls and top dome give an open view to the stars when the detachable rainfly is taken off. Install the rainfly for complete weather protection. You can actually leave the “door” of the rainfly stretched open and outward for a small awning over one of the entry doors.
Water- and fire-proof
Ultra-convenient, the Coleman Pop-Up tent literally pops up as soon as you pull it out of its included case. It really is that easy—unzip, POP, and climb in. You can handle setup—even if your camping partner’s MIA and you’re handling prep solo. The slightly oblong shape is cozy for two with a narrower width than length, but great for a cuddling couple when one has long legs. The integrated polyester rainfly is both water and fireproof, which is a nice addition if you sleep in the rain or near a crackling campfire.
