The great outdoors seem even greater when you’ve got the right tent. Four new designs offer something for everyone.
Cozy up in the wild with this lightweight, freestanding, two-person tent. It has mesh panels and doors for great ventilation and a taped nylon floor to keep you dry. $229. www.thenorthface.com
Fit the whole family — and maybe a few friends — in the Pagoda 6, a luxury tent that offers 100 square feet of sleeping space. Mesh walls and ceilings allow for excellent ventilation. $425. (800) 423-2320, www.kelty.com
An ultralight one-person tent with a durable fly sheet and continuous pole sleeves so it never loses shape. At just three pounds, 11 ounces, it hardly weighs more than your water bottle. $189. www.thenorthface.com
A hip new tent that puts a fresh twist on car camping. It’s a sculpted tent wing that attaches to the side or roof of your car to provide shelter wherever you park. Perfect on the beach or trail, or even at a tailgate party. From $200. (800) 423-2320, www.kelty.com
