Finding the perfect 2 person tent can be difficult. Most people want a tent that is lightweight, easy-to-setup, has enough space inside for packs, has excellent ventilation and rain protection. Luckily, the Meramac 2 Tent checks everything on that list and then some.
The Perfect 2 Person Tent for Campers and Backpackers
Weighing in at around 8 pounds, the Meramac 2 Tent is a great lightweight option for anyone who enjoys camping. Unlike more traditional tents, it has a freestanding design so you don’t need to worry about carrying extra stakes. Of course, you do have to remember to pack the two fiberglass poles. These poles are longer than you’d normally find for a 2 person tent to provide more strength and stability in even strong winds. Thanks to the all-clip assembly, set up is incredibly easy and takes less than a minute to get it fully assembled. This is perfect if you suddenly need to set up camp due to inclement weather.
Speaking of inclement weather, the included fly provides excellent weather protection during windy or rainy weather. Of course, for tents you also have to worry about water coming from the floor. Luckily, the factory sealed seams and floor repel water so you can stay nice and dry inside. With that said, for extra protection, on the ground, you should probably pack a tent footprint.
Besides its stellar performance in the rain, it’s also great for those hot summer days. With the fly off, the tent has screening on all four sides for excellent ventilation. You can further ventilate the tent by opening up the side entrances. Besides air flow, these side entrances are also great for when one person wants to exit the tent without waking the other. It’s a simple feature, but one many other tent manufacturers overlook.
As compact as it is when packed up, the Meramac 2 can comfortably fit two people and their packs inside, though it might be a bit snug. If you’re okay with a snug interior, then this should suit you just fine.
