I need a tent, probably a 3-4 person ( however it is just for me), that I can put an XL cot in, plus that is easy, easy to put up for one person.
When purchasing a tent always
purchase too much tent. Tents are like rafts.....if you need a 2 man raft purchase a 4 man raft. So, if you're purchasing a tent for your self, I suggest at least a 4 man tent. :thumb: A 4 man tent will allow you room for yourself, your equipment, a second hunter (should that happen in the future) and a place to stay if the weather turns bad. :smow:
A 2 man tent is usually no more than sleeping quarters and if the weather turns bad, you may have to stay inside for a few hours. It's nice to be able to stand up, stretch your legs, sit at a small table, etc. :nod: Wally world has some decent tents, but make sure that they're not too well ventilated or you'll lose valuable heat. :hand: Be careful that you don't get into a "summer" tent that has a rain fly, but the entire top of the tent has a mesh top.....that's where you'd lose your any heat that you may need to get a good night's sleep.
Coleman brand tents have what they call "veriflow" ventilation, which allows you to close some or all of the "breathing" vents and that will allow you
to breath, but not lose too much heat. An 8x10 will sleep 4, but works well for 2 (and all the gear) and is easier to heat than a 10x16.
