2-Person Tent

Light weight backpacking tents are camping tents that are ideal for bug-out situations. They're ultra-light weight, durable and meant for the outdoor elements. 

They include features for gear storage, venting, light placement and more. They're highly water-repellent and UV-resistant.

Survival Purpose

One of the primary survival priorities in an evacuation scenario is to keep out of extreme elements and keep your body at a healthy temperature. Of course you can build a wilderness shelter but having one handy saves a lot of energy and brings piece of mind. 

A budget 2-man backpacking tent is a great survival shelter. It is weather proof (wind, rain, sun) and a very light weight addition to a go-bag and should be part of Stage 2 in your survival system. Compare it with the high-end 2-person tent.

We have a budget camping tent for car camping and it takes a lot of abuse. However, it has held up well. When we get home we dry it out and store it close to our emergency gear. 

What We Like

  • Durable - The aluminum poles outlast fiberglass significantly. The seam-taped tent and fly hold up well if taken care of.
  • Light Weight - At just under 5 pounds the tent makes a great addition to a go-bag. Instant shelter justifies the relatively light weight.
  • Minimalist - The tent isn't complicated. The standard pole sleeves are very common and make it a synch to assemble in a hurry.
  • Designed for Mobility - Once stowed in its bag the tent fits snuggly in a pack for on-the-go mobility.
  • Weatherproof - The seam-taped fabric holds out wind, rain, snow, and sun. We've experienced harsh elements when in the wilderness and a tent of this quality repells it all.

Tips and Recommendations

  • Trial Run - Take it camping so you know how to set it up and stow it away after. 
  • Store It Dry - If you use it, put it away clean and dry so it doesn't mildew.
  • Put It Back - If you use it, put it back. Emergency gear has a tendency to walk off when raided for daily use.
  • Comfort Is Key - When you set it up you're goal is to make a great night's sleep. Find a place on the ground where you can put your pad and be the most comfortable.
