Spacious and big, these tents work well for longer camping trips or walking holidays away. They can cover a range of events and vacations, but you're going to want to make sure that what you're buying is high-quality and weatherproof, so you can make the most of your tent.
Here at Yours, we've already tackled the best tents for the beach you can buy, and now we're turning our heads to three-man tents that will see you through no matter the weather.
What is the best three-man tent?
There are a variety of features that you should consider before buying a three-man tent and this is really what changes which tent is the best one for you. From location to how many people you're looking after, this is what's going to affect the tent you choose.
Some features you should consider when buying a tent:
Waterproof/weatherproof: A very important feature for a tent to use in changing weather conditions like in the UK. You want to make sure that you're going to be safe away from water and weather in your tent so consider how weatherproof the tent really is and if it can withstand sun, rain and storm.
Windows and curtains: Some tents come with windows and curtains built-in and this can be a great option if you're looking to stay somewhere picturesque. These are more common in larger, family tents.
Doors: Chances are that three-man tents will come with one door alone, but you can find some on the market with two doors for extra options.
Power access: Do you want your tent to have access to a power cable and electricity? You can get tents with zipped entry points to ensure power access is covered.
Ventilation: Important especially if there's more of you in a closed space. Look for tents with high and low ventilation areas to ensure the best coverage.
