Carrying your gear on your back opens up so many options in the wild. You don’t have to worry about parking or fuel, you can take it at your own pace, one step at a time. But carrying all that gear isn’t easy. In most cases, you’re going to want to find camping gear that’s as lightweight as possible.
Lightweight hiking tents are designed to be carried. Not only are they lighter than traditional dome or cabin tents, but (in most cases) pack up small for storing in your pack while on the move.
Hiking tents are characterised by their compact size, low weight, and a quick set up. They come in a huge range of sizes and configurations making them suitable for different terrain and camping environments.
Many hiking tents available at Outdoria are asymmetrical in design. This helps keep them low to the ground when set up and cuts down on the number of poles required, further reducing weight.

Because they are so compact and durable, hiking tents are great for camping in harsh environments. A tent’s make and model will determine what type of weather it is suitable for:
Two-season tents are really only suitable for spring and summer camping. However, this makes them very lightweight: coupled with a lightweight tarp they can make a great lightweight option for three-season expeditions.
Three-season tents are designed for camping through spring, summer, and autumn. They feature a waterproof fly and sturdy construction to keep you warm and dry when the rain rolls in.
Four-season tents are built for camping in winter and are the go-to choice for hikers who expect to experience a range of weather conditions on their adventures.
Five-season tents are typically dome-shaped to prevent snow building up on the roof. They are made of strong, yet lightweight materials constructed for performance in alpine conditions.
