How to insulate a tent for winter camping
Several of our tents are rated for very cold camping, but how to stay warm camping in a tent can still take preparation. You want insulation that will trap as much air as possible in the tent. You can use insulation on the outside or inside of the tent. Foam is great for insulating the floor (remember to go a little ways up the walls as well). And finally, insulate yourself! Get a cold-weather sleeping bag, pack a super-warm fleece, and don't sleep on a raised camp bed.
What should you bring camping in a tent?
The North Face athletes Jim Zellers and Alex Honnold recommend focusing on two aspects of camping: sleeping and cooking. Remember to bring the things you need to cook, like a camp stove, as well as plates, cups, and utensils. If you're car camping and driving right up to your campsite, a larger tent can make all the difference.
Where can you buy camping tents?
There are a variety of camping tents available online and in stores. Use our Store Locator to find a location near you or shop right here online.
How to make tent camping comfortable
Super soft sleeping bags are a great way to make camping comfy. If you're driving or you don't mind the extra weight, sleeping pads or an air mattress can make a world of difference. If it's going to be cold, make sure to bring the right clothes and an extra blanket!
