5 Best Backpacking Tents for a Tall Person

A great school backpack for kids should be able to corral all the stuff they need for the school day. It should also be appropriately sized for smaller bodies and comfortable to lug around. And since kids will carry a backpack every day for a school year (or beyond), it should be durable and come in enough colors and designs to let kids express their sense of style.

Since 2015, we’ve tested nearly 30 popular backpacks for kids, in some cases sending them to school with our own kids year after year. The backpacks we recommend suit a range of ages (from preschool through middle school), have been thoroughly evaluated for comfort and durability, and feature smart organization and high-quality construction. Whether you’re looking for an affordable classic that will last for years, a fun backpack that comes in multiple sizes and tons of designs (including a rolling option), a larger backpack with laptop storage for older students, or an artsy, super-organized backpack for all ages, these packs earn top marks from kids and parents alike.

Browning Camping Big Horn Tent


[percentbar percentage_title=”Score Parameter 1″ percentage=”70″ percentage_number=”7″] [percentbar percentage_title=”Score Parameter 2″ percentage=”70″ percentage_number=”7″] [percentbar percentage_title=”Score Parameter 3″ percentage=”80″ percentage_number=”8″] [percentbar percentage_title=”Score Parameter 4″ percentage=”80″ percentage_number=”8″] [percentbar percentage_title=”Score Parameter 5″ percentage=”90″ percentage_number=”9″] [progressbar id=”1″ text=”7.5″ info=”Final Score” percent=”75″ ]

The first item to make it on to our hitlist is the Coleman Tenaya Lake Cabin Tent. This is one incredibly spacious tent that can accommodate even the largest of families thanks to its 8-person maximum capacity.

Alternatively, it makes a great tent for smaller groups that like to spread out and bring a touch of luxury to the great outdoors. The huge floor plan means that you can easily fit in two queen-sized mattresses and still have room to spare.

Plus, with a center height of 6 ft 8, this is one of the best tall camping tents around. Oh, and it even comes with an in-built closet – perfect for those who take their festival fancy dress costumes seriously.

As well as being super spacious, this tent has a color-coded set-up system that couldn’t be simpler to figure out (which is lucky because the instructions aren’t so clear), and we love the optional room divider if you decide you need it a bit of privacy.

There’s also a hinged door that really adds to the homey vibes, and the e-port means that you can stay plugged in as long as there’s a power source nearby.

The rainfly, inverted seams, and waterproof floor will be sure to keep you dry, but be careful with the door zipper as it sometimes snags. Aside from that, there’s very little we don’t like about this tent.
