Most Comfortable Tents
While there are a lot of different tents to choose from, not all of them are built primarily to keep you comfortable. Some tents exist to be durable enough to withstand heavy storms, others reduce weight wherever possible so they can be used for backpacking, etc. If you are looking to buy a new tent and you want something that maximizes comfort in every way, you have come to the right place! Here are some of the latest and greatest tent models on the market when it comes to comfort and livability.
Bell tents have become quite popular in recent years, especially when it comes to glamping. This is because they are some of the most comfortable tents out there, thanks to their spacious interior that offers plenty of room to stand up and move around, and more than enough space to keep a large mattress inside. They look like portable yurts. One great option in this category is the Yukon Bell Tent from Elk Mountain Tents. The Yukon is made of a unique polyester canvas material that has many great advantages over regular cotton canvas, increasing its comfortability. It is much more durable than cotton, more resistant to ultraviolet rays, and has a much higher break and tear strength, allowing it to last a lot longer than other tents will. It is also more waterproof and has reinforced seams, keeping you safe and dry if the rain starts pouring down outside. Another thing included in the Yukon that can turn it into a cozy glamping haven even during the coldest part of the year is the stove jack. This allows you to safely use a wood stove inside the tent, and even in the middle of the night, you can be warm and toasty. You can also heat water and food, offering a tasty hot meal in the comfort of your tent. The stove jack can be cut to be 4, 5, or 6 inches in width, so if you already have a stove, you’ll be able to cut it to fit the pipe. The tent has great ventilation as well, thanks to vents at the peak of the tent, windows that can be rolled and tied open (or Velcroed closed), a large door, and breathable material. Elk Mountain’s website has 3 options available for the Yukon Bell Tent, a 13 ft. diameter for $650, a 16 ft. diameter for $800, and a 20 ft. diameter for $950. The 13 ft. has a peak height of 8 ft., with the larger sizes increasing in center height.
If you are looking for the most comfortable family-sized option, you should take a look at the Coleman Cabin Tent with Instant Setup. This is one of the most spacious large tents out there, with a 6 ft. 7 in. center height (and staying close to that height along the whole ceiling, providing ample headroom throughout) and the interior is 14 x 10 ft., offering a lot of room to move around even for taller campers. It can fit 10 people inside, making this a great tent to buy if you want a lot of space to keep your things. Setup is also a lot easier than it is with other tents, especially considering its size. The instant cabin design of the tent makes setup take just 60 seconds. A bonus comfort is the room divider included inside, so you can have a bedroom and a sitting room, or two bedrooms, etc. The large door is hinged, making it quite easy to get in and out of. The reinforced seams and bathtub floor help the tent hold up excellently against strong weather, so you can keep cozy and dry inside even when the wind and rain start to pick up. It also has fantastic ventilation, keeping the tent cool and comfortable when it’s hot outside. Another thing that keeps the tent cool is the built-in darkroom technology, which blocks out 90% of sunlight. This is great for those who like to sleep in even after the sun rises. For how comfortable it is, the Coleman Instant Cabin is quite cheap and can be purchased online for around $300.
Another great family-sized option is the Hikergarden Family Tent, which is an 8-person tent that is comfortable in large part due to its spacious interior as well as its protection against wind and rain. It has enough room to fit 3 queen mattresses inside, so several people can have a luxurious experience inside without feeling cramped. There is also a port included so that you can have easy access to electricity inside. One of the things that makes this tent stand out the most is its durability. It holds up well against stormy weather thanks to its 185T Polyester material (used in many heavy-duty backpacks). This sturdy material also has a high break and tear strength, so you can count on this model for relaxing outings for years to come. It includes a lot of mesh windows that keep the tent well-ventilated when it gets hot outside, and it has an easy-assembly design.
The OT QOMOTOP 60-second Camping Tent is designed with comfort in mind. It comes in several different sizes (4, 6, 8, and 10-person options), so no matter how many people you want to take camping with you, you can get this reliable model to meet your needs. With near-vertical walls and plenty of headroom, this tent is easy to move around inside of without having to contort yourself. The tent can be set up in 60 seconds or fewer thanks to its simple and user-friendly design, so you don’t need to worry about the daunting task that setup can often be. The frame is built into the material, so you don’t need to fumble around with poles to see where they go. The 68D polyester, reinforced windows, and bathtub floor gives the tent a waterproof rating of 600mm, so you can sleep comfortably knowing the rain won’t leak inside. It is freestanding, so you can move the tent around without having to disassemble it, it has an e-port so you can get electricity inside, and it has excellent airflow thanks to an included floor vent. While the price varies with the size you get, you can usually purchase it online for around $100-$200.
The Core 9-Person Extended Dome Tent has a unique design for a dome-shaped tent. It includes 2 additional poles on either side of the tent that widen it enough to comfortably fit 9 people inside. If your group is smaller than that, then each person can have plenty of room to make themselves at home. It is an open enough space to fit 3 queen air mattresses inside. The sealed seams of the tent are durable enough to make sure no water leaks into the tent, allowing you to keep warm and dry even while the rain is pouring down outside. The tent can stay nice and cool during the summer as well, thanks to the fantastic airflow system that includes floor vents. You can even adjust the size of each of these vents, giving you control over the inside temperature (a great touch for anyone looking for comfort). Another great part of the tent is that the rainfly can be removed to reveal transparent mesh ceiling panels. These allow you to relax and stargaze in the safety of your tent without worrying about insects bothering you. It has an electrical cord access port, which can allow you to bring more luxurious conveniences inside. Available for just $170 online, this spacious tent option is well worth its price.
The REI Co-op Kingdom 6-person tent has a unique tunnel design that allows it to capitalize on both vertical and horizontal space. Pitching isn’t as easy as it is for some other tent models, but it does have color-coded poles, fly, and floor to ease the burden a little bit. Once it is set up, it has a massive floor area of 83 sq. ft. and a ceiling height of 6.25 ft. There is a large door on either side, making it so you can easily get your things in and out. You can divide the tent into two rooms with a room divider that can be zipped inside. There are mesh panels on the walls and doors so you can allow cool air to flow into the tent while keeping insects from being able to get in. This high-quality durable tent is available online for around $500.
