Family Tent Brands

For many folks, when it comes to making any type of purchase brand names are important. The same can be said for campers looking for camping tents. Buying a tent from a top rated and trusted manufacturer can make or break your camping experience.

Here is an overview of some of the most trusted names in tents:

North Face

The name alone may make you think of mountains. So, when you think of North Face tents, being comfortable, dry and warm probably comes to mind. North Face was founded in 1966 by two California-based hikers. Their brand focuses on high performance hiking and backpacking gear.

North Face expedition tents can range up to $2500-but for those braving the elements of mountains this high ticket price could literally save a life! The model for the aforementioned price is a smaller dome, which sleeps eight. Lower price tents in this category cost around $400-$500. North Face’s three-season tents start at $159, and come in many styles and sizes. The company also offers an ultra-light category


There is probably not a more trusted name in camping gear than Coleman. In fact, that’s their slogan: “The Greatest Name in Camping Gear.” This company has been around over 100 years and makes over 100 camping items, everything from stoves and lanterns to, of course, tents.

Coleman tents are also very affordable, ranging from $50 to a few hundred dollars. There are solo tents, and tents with several rooms that can sleep up to four people. They make backpacking tents as well. Some of their tents come with pet play areas, too!
