Dome tent information, resouces and options.

Dome tents get their name from their distinctive shape. They are easier to set up than A-frame or 'Pup' tents and their shape makes them more wind resistant. Usually they have room for 2-4 people.

There are some bigger tents with a rounded shape but usually if you get a tent for 6-8 people it will be some variation of the round shape.

New technology and creative design are making the tents of today in a lot of unique shapes and sizes.

Many of todays dome tents are marketed as backpacking tents or ultra light tents.

The weight factor is important in these smaller tents as they are usually used by people who desire mobility and light weight.

It turns out one of the best small tents on the market is the 'Big Sky Evolution'.

It is a 2 person tent and weighs in at only 3 pounds. It has great ventilation and two doors which can be a big plus in the middle of the night. It even totes a lfetime warrenty.
