What should I be looking for when choosing my ultimate tent with porch?

Hydrostatic Head

HH is measured in mm and indicates the force of water needed before fabric or material begins to leak. Imagine a column of water 2 metres high (2000mm); the weight of that water being forced down onto a material creates a given pressure, generating the hydrostatic head measurement. The greater the column of water, the greater the pressure and the more waterproof a fabric will need to be in order stop the water penetrating the fabric.

Size

Remember a tent in not just a place to sleep on an evening. It will also be a place for you to store all of your gear. A 3 person tent is big enough for 3 people to sleep on their back. It may not be big enough for everyone’s shoes, clothes and bags. A tent with porch is a great option because it will offer extra space but if you are going away in a 3 person tent with porch with 3 people it will still be a tight fit. 

Is it easy to put up?

Most tent manufacturers claim that it will only take a matter of minutes, or in some cases seconds, to pitch a tent. Often though, this is not the case.  

There are tents which are designed to be ‘quick-pitch’ tents. These are called pop-up tents, easy-erect pole tents and inflatable tents. These are usually great for those wanting to avoid arguments about how best to pitch a tent. However, and this is personal preference, I prefer a tent which is more stable and secure. There are thousands of great carbon-glass or steal pole tents which are easy to pitch. The key tip I can offer is a simple one. Read the instruction and practice pitching your tent before you arrive at your destination. Practice really does make perfect and within a few trial runs you will be erecting your tent in no time. 

Durability

Camping is one of the greatest outdoor pursuits. No question. But, it often comes with changing weather and unusual conditions. Whether that be rain, wind or the blazing sun you need a versatile tent which is durable and will not be bust after its first outing. Buying a durable, long-lasting tent is a smart purchase which could save you lots of money in the long run. The key to durability is the fabric style and the pole materials. This will help you understand what your tent can and cannot do. 

Where did you get the specifications from?

We take our specifications directly from the manufacturer. This allows us to ensure that the information is correct and coming from source. We do edit this information to remove any ‘marketing’ jargon so that you are only getting the objective statistics which can be used to compare different items. Each manufacturer provides different specification information so that is why there is some discrepancy between what information is provided. For instance, Coleman do not provide the same level of detail as some of the other manufacturers. Please note, this does not mean Coleman tent with porch options are not great because if they weren’t we would not have put them in our ultimate list. 

Conclusion: Tent With Porch

All of the tents in this list are great tent with porch option. Our personal favourites are manufactured by NTK. The Indy and Super Arizona are excellent tents with fantastic designs and are suitable for all conditions. If you are investing in a high quality tent both are superb options which, if looked after, will survive you season after season.
