How to Choose the Right Tent for Backpacking Expeditions Camping In-Depth

Aaron shows you three different tents to show you what he’s used in Antarctica, Greenland, Denali, car camping, and Yellowstone. He compares and contrasts the different styles of tents, shows how long it takes to put them up, and what each tent’s strengths and weaknesses are. He talks about multiple factors:

Number of people, Capacity winter vs summer, Double vs single wall, Weight, Wind resistance, Tear resistance, Snow skirt, Ease of setup, Ventilation, Vestibule for gear, Internal height, Number of doors, Pockets, Gear hanging, Guy lines, Footprint - (biggest scam ever), is seam sealer required

He also illustrates a few different tent styles: Tunnel, Dome, Hybrid and Other, Bivy
