A 2 person tent backpacking tent is designed to be lightweight and easy to set and take down. Choosing the right tent can have a direct impact on how much fun you have on your camping trip.

Your tent needs to be durable, well-made and easy to set up and take down — while affording protection for you, your fellow campers, your equipment from the elements. (Protecting you from flying critters is an added bonus.)

Outdoor Junkie has listed three of the best and highest user-rated tents on the market that meets all those requirements. And they won’t break the bank.


Mountainsmith Morrison 2 Person Tent

The Mountainsmith Morrison 2 Person Tent is constructed of tough 185T polyester. The setup dimensions are 56 by 43 by 92 inches (W x H x D) with the main floor space of 35 square feet – more than ample for 2 people and their gear.

A vestibule at each of the two doors blocks wind and rain. Vented windows on the rain fly prevent pesky insects.

The easy to use clip-pole attachments means less weight than comparably-priced tents.

A color-coded system and quick setup guide (printed on the stuff bag) make setup and takedown a cinch.

The Mountainsmith Morrison 2 PersonTent may not be the cheapest on the market, but it is one of the best values available. And the limited lifetime warranty will provide you with peace of mind for years to come.


Winterial 3 Person / 2 Person Tent

The Winterial 2 Person Tent is the perfect size weight for backpacking, which makes it an especially great choice for dispersed camping. As a bonus, 3 can easily fit into this tent. You might expect a camping tent at this price point to be a lesser quality product, but you’d be wrong.

Construction is of a super light material using double stitching all the way around and the.use of durable stakes helps ensure that you’ll never get blown over – making it the perfect choice for any outdoor adventure.

The rainfly more than adequately covers for rain showers. The two pop-out air vents (one on one either side) keeps the things well-ventilated. The Winterial 3 Person tent works well in temperatures that go deep into the 20’s.

Setup is quick and easy. Even by one person, set-up only takes a few minutes. Despite being listed as a 3-person tent, three campers may actually feel cramped – especially if you’re storing gear inside. This is the one possible drawback to the Winterial 3 version.

Overall – the Winterial 2 Person Tent is a well-made product with good design, basic features, lightweight and is reasonably priced. It’s an especially good choice for dispersed camping.


Coleman Sundome 2 Person Tent

Coleman Sundome 2 Person Tent is a slightly smaller version of Coleman’s Sundome 4 Person Tent. And like it larger version is an excellent value for both first-time or experienced campers. This all-weather tent is lightweight, roomy and durable.

Along with its popular dome design, the tent’s snag-free, continuous pole sleeves allow for a quick and easy setup, usually about 15 minutes or less. Disassembly is just as effortless. After the takedown, the Sundome 2 Person Tent easily stores away for transport in its carry bag. And like the larger 4 person version, the Sundome 2 Person Tent is available in either green or navy.

You’ll love the great air circulation provided by ground vents and the large windows. The rainfly awning will provide you with shade and rain protection. Interior storage pockets keep gear organized.

Camping with the Sundome 2 Person means you won’t have to worry about water in your tent. The patented WeatherTec™ system of welded floors and inverted seams will keep water out. Plus, the 1000D Polyethylene floor acts is like having an extra tarp. The waterproof floor goes up the sides a few inches to ensure water stays outside.

For your peace of mind, the Sundome 2 Person Tent comes with a 1-year limited warranty from Coleman – one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of outdoor gear.

The well-designed, durable, functional and moderately priced, the Sundome 2 Person Tent by Coleman has to rate as one of the best values available for Outdoor Junkies. However, if you think future camping needs will require an upgrade in size, it would be best to invest a little more now and go with the larger Sundome 4 person version. It’s the same great tent and you won’t regret it.
