Choosing Tents and Shelters
Unless you’re up for sleeping under the stars, you’ll want a tent for your next camping trip. Tent styles range from small solo shelters to huge, structured tents designed to withstand gale-force winds while mountaineering. You’ll need to consider seasonality (three or four-season) and size when you make your choice.
For most campers, 3-season tents are the way to go. Intended for relatively mild conditions, these tents have mesh panels to promote airflow and employ rain flies to keep you dry.

Designed primarily for winter, 4-season tents feature heavier fabrics and more poles than 3-season tents. This adds weight but is essential for withstanding fierce winds and heavy snow.

Camp Furniture Basics
There's nothing quite like kicking back by the fire in a comfy chair after a long day of hiking, ski touring, or mountain biking. Although a chair or a table might not seem like a necessity when you're making the check list for your next camping trip, there are plenty of people who would beg to differ. Camp furniture ranges from inflatable pads that offer backpackers a brief respite from the ground to hammocks and chairs with cupholders that allow you to live a life of relative luxury in the outdoors.
After a long day on the trail, you deserve a better seat than the cold, hard ground. Whether you're backpacking or car camping, there's a camp chair that suits your needs.
