It is never easy to choose a tent for a camping or bivouac trip. However it is essential for your comfort to make the right choice. That's why we propose you to discover our top 10 camping/bivouac tents 2022. Our experts have selected the best products for you!

How to choose the right tent for camping or bivouac?

No matter what you want to use it for, it is essential to take into account certain criteria. First of all, it is necessary to define the most common use of your tent. Indeed, if you are just going camping, the criteria will be different than for a trekking of several days.

First of all, you should know that the lightness criterion is not to be taken lightly. Indeed, when you go on a bivouac it is necessary not to underestimate the importance of the weight of the tent, because you will surely have to carry it several days in a row and during long hours of walking. It is therefore preferable to choose an ultra-light tent. For a camping trip the weight is much less important because you will not have to carry it in your backpack.
Then, don't forget that if the weather conditions are not in your favor and your tent is not adapted to difficult conditions, the night might be difficult.
Also, for optimal comfort you can opt for a waterproof tent.
Finally, it seems obvious that your comfort should be a consideration. Consider the size of the tent, the shape of the tent, the size of the living space, the number of bedrooms etc.

The product expert's advice:

Malaurie experte produit

"For more comfort it's best to choose a tent with lots of vents, and even more so if there are several of you sleeping in it. This will prevent condensation and allow for better air renewal. Even though single-roof tents are lighter, they often don't have the best ventilation. Therefore, choose a double-roof tent when possible. "

When you decide to go trekking, the choice of your backpack is just as important as the choice of your tent. Pay attention to its storage volume, practicality, accessories, functionality, weight and carrying capacity.
We recommend that you choose a backpack between 50 and 80 liters so that it can hold: sleeping bag, tent and camping utensils. But remember that you are going to carry every gram of your equipment, so you need to be careful about the weight of the bag and the carrying system so as not to complicate the long hours of walking. The most important elements of the carrying system are: the frames, the breathability and the adjustments.
