Why You Need a Winter Camping Tent

Winter Tents are amazing, whether they are to be used for camping or the purpose of ice fishing. As no one wants to stay in chilled weather and freeze in death winter, the requirements of winter tents become a need of the hour. Thanks to the manufacturers of winter tents that they have spent their time in addressing our needs of camping in chilled weather and come up with tents specifically made for the winter season.

What to look for while buying a Winter Tent

In this buying guide, we will discuss certain factors necessary to be considered before purchasing a winter tent from the online marketplace.
All the tents made aren’t similar either in terms of space or sturdiness. Thus, we should differentiate between different winter tents based on the 9 points given below.

Important features of winter tents


Capacity matters, especially in cold weather. If you are planning to camp in groups with multiple people in cold weather, looking for individual tents may be a bad idea. It may also cause the loss of persons in the whiteout and lead them to death in cold weather. So, it is better to look for a winter tent with a capacity of two or more people depending on the size of your camping trip group. Capacity is measured in square feet.


It depends upon the material and insulation of the winter tent to give you the precise heat in winter conditions. Some of the best winter tents are double-wall tent, but it is not bad if you are getting winter tents in single-wall tent. The single wall tents are comparatively lighter and also provides an option of flexibility. For more protection, you can keep the right amount of gear, such as an insulated sleeping bag or warm clothing, along with you.

A fly is usually provided on the tent to keep you out of the rain. At the same time, you should be alert of choosing a fly that is also able to keep the heavy snow out from any lower ventilation. Many of the users go for ¾ to ½ of the way up, but going for a full-size fly is a better option as it keeps the cold weather out of your wall tents.


Another critical factor to consider in winter tents is spaciousness. Look for whether you can carry out activities such as playing cards or board games in your tent’s space. You have to check for the comfort level of the space supplied because it is the only thing in which you will be going to spend the majority of the time. The inner area should be large enough to keep your toes or sleeping bag away from the tent walls.

A vestibule is another thing you can check out for in winter tents. It is a separate area within the tent where you can keep your shoes or store any other gear. This area helps to differentiate the living space and keep it clean and safe from any wear and tear. In case your favorite tent doesn’t contain vestibules, you can buy a separate one for it depending upon the tent’s space.


Residing in camping winter tents also means retaining moisture. If excess humidity is produced within the tent without any way of ventilation to send it out, it can cause hyperthermia or kill you in cold winter conditions. This is why ventilation is a must in a winter tent. Our bodies also produce natural moisture while sleeping, and the result of condensation of this moisture is the melting of ice on your tent walls. Thus, you should opt for tents that provide enough ventilation with zippered or mesh windows.

Having optional ventilation will also offer you to control the microclimate within your tent. Furthermore, the mesh windows provided in the tent should be easy to open or close to avoid any discomfort in cold weather. Miss over the tents with incapable mesh windows that are difficult to close or open. You can choose between enough based upon the number of people residing in the tent.

Quality Of Material

The quality of the tent’s material should be strong enough to withstand strong winds and water. Cold weather essentially requires a windproof winter tent to keep you comfortable and cozy inside. A tent with insulating bathtub floors is suitable to go for in wet weather. Other factors you can check for are substantial stakes, sturdy doors, and aluminum doors. The tents with the suitability of four seasons is also a considerable tent to go for.
The floor with plastic material is not an excellent option to go for as the ice will ultimately melt on the floor and make your camping experience more than worse. This material does not do well to keep off the snow. Floors with 40-Deneir or above materials are of good quality to buy for.


More than one access or entry doors put an advantage over the user. Good access will allow you to enter and leave the tent from two ways and prevent the snow from blowing inside. The separate exit and entry doors are usually helpful for the group residing in the tent. Two access doors offer ease of movement when more than one person is using it.


Lightweight tents are a great deal, especially when you are hiking, mountaineering or backpacking to the spot. The portable tent offers other benefits such as ease of movement, ease of packing, and flexibility in using the overall tent. It will put you at comfort if you are also carrying other warm-weather gear and adding on the more weight. So, you can freely enjoy the lightweight journey with a portable tent.

Weather Resistance

The winter tents should be weather resistant with the capability of snow-shedding, so that tent ceilings do not collapse and get heavy. Check for the waterproof walls to get additional comfort and stay away from the water-based sealers that don’t stand up well in water. The polyurethane coating is known to be 100% waterproof and ideal to use in cold weather. The winter tents with steep walls are a great option to go for and prevent the snow from coming into the tent.


The budget is the last but not the least factor in determining the best winter tent. The camping tents with lightweight and sturdy features will make up the tent an expensive option while the four-season tents are a less expensive option comparatively.
