Four Season Tents for Winter Camping

A standard winter camping tent. Roomier and heavier than a three season tent, these tents are designed for nasty winter weather.
Anyone who plans on camping out during the winter months better plan on having a four season tent. While a standard three person tent can work in a "pinch", a three person tent is a recipe for total disaster for winter camping. There are several reasons for this.

First, winter camping tents are designed to shed snow. Unlike a three season tent, a four season tent will shed the snow off the sides, preventing the tent from bowing inward due to the weight of snow (or in extreme cases, from collapsing altogether).

Second, a winter camping tent has thicker walls. The increased thickness provides for both extra insulation against the cold of winter as well as provides for a much more solid windbreak, something that is vital during the winter.

And lastly, winter tents are far more durable. They have been designed to withstand the rigors of high winds and ultra-cold temperatures. In many winter conditions, a standard three person tent can fall apart completely. All these tents are available through Backcountry.Com.
