Serious terrain calls for a serious tent. Hiking tents are designed for adventurers travelling deep into the wilderness where weight and durability are the most important aspects to a tent. The poles are made from lightweight aluminium or fiberglass and feature a more compact design compared to a normal tent. Hiking tents tend to have a low ceiling height which increases the stability in undesirable conditions, with a thick, waterproof fly able to withstand heavy rainfall.
To remain compact when stored, hiking tents usually only come in small sleeping capacities. The largest size typically found is a four person tent, while most come in a two person size. They also come in a variety of designs including roomier dome-style tents and compact bivouacs.
