Solo or Family? If you're going solo, there are tube tents (known as "bivy sacks") and dome tents with some variations in between. For backpackers who hike off-trail, a tube tent is ideal. It's light, easily set up, and doesn't need a lot of space. But for some, they can be claustrophobic.

For soloists, a two-man dome tent can be only slightly heavier but has extra space to move freely, a vestibule to keep the rain out and with some models, there are pockets in which to stow your gear.

If you're looking for a family tent, consider size, the number of people it can accommodate, a partition to give you two or more rooms for privacy, and advanced tent technology, such as Eureka's
