At Field & Stream, we know all too well how expensive tents can be, but there’s a lot of price variation across categories—hence the search for the best tent deals. After all, if you’re setting up a week-long deer camp, taking out scout troops, or just don’t enjoy roughing it in the backcountry, a decent wall tent will easily set you back $1,000. If you’re a backpacker who isn’t too concerned about weight, or one of those minimalist Bivy evangelists, you can find a lot of quality for a few hundred dollars.
But everyone loves a deal, so we’ve rounded up some of the best deals on tents right now. Unfortunately for those of you who go camping, it’s harder to find large, comfortable wall tents for sale, and most of what you’ll find are smaller backpacking and family tents.
However, even the best tents occasionally go on sale, so we’ll be updating this page with the best tent deals as we come across bigger and better sales.
MSR HUB 8 Tents – $3,249.99 (35% off, save $1,750)
It’s expensive, yes, and it looks a little more Everest base camp than elk camp, but hear me out on this. It’s a 108-square-meter, eight-person tent that weighs up to 48 kilograms. If you’re flying in, moving camp, or a smaller group that wants a larger tent, this tent could really be your answer. Another, for lack of a better word, bonus, is that with big price tags come big discounts. At 35% off, you’re saving $1,750 on this tent.
A packable three-pole tent is a backpacking classic. Under $200 from one of the top brands is always a good deal. An additional plus is having the door along the length of the tent. It’s a small design choice, but it’s infinitely easier to roll into your porch, versus hunkering down to the bottom of the tent.
Same tent, same benefits, but split into two backpacks each holding only 2 kilograms. 1 oz., and this is incredibly light territory. Just like the one-person model, you have access along the length of the tent, with two side doors. No crawling over each other trying to get out – a small luxury that makes a big difference in the backseat.
Another deal from ALPS Mountaineering, best for those camping with a family, or car campers looking for a bit more space. All the weatherproofing you’ll need, two bucks per kit and a whopping 55% off, this is an easy buy.
