One piece of camping equipment that are important no matter if you are camping overnight in the front yard or hiking in the back country is a tent. Tents provide a home away from home. There is something instinctive about having a roof over your head. Even if you prefer to sleep under the stars it was nice to know you can take shelter in case of rain or annoying insects. You can find high-quality and good conditioned Military shelters online.
Tents come in all shapes and sizes. Try to determine if you need only a small tent that can fit several people or if your needs run more towards 10 tents. Tent borrow from friends or family can help you find out if you really want a tent, and what might the tent needs. By doing some comparison shopping you can probably find some good sales tent no matter what you're looking for, even brand names such as Akto and SoulPad. A good tip is to try to find at the end of the season or even off season when stores are trying to inventory changes. Many times you can find people who stopped were very good, but at a substantial discount.
