Here are important things to look out for while hunting for a two people tent: 

Sturdiness

The ability of a tent to withstand harsh weather conditions should be noted when searching for your tent. A durable/sturdy tent saves the stress of trying to find a cover when a harsh wind or hail storm carries away your tent. 

The material a tent is made from is very essential in sustaining its durability. A durable or sturdy tent doesn’t necessarily mean a heavy one. For example, the canvas material provides excellent protection, and has a strong feel, it can be pretty heavy, and it is not usually the first choice for survivalists or campers. Heavy bags always include stress and a stressed camper would most definitely not be happy.

So do well to watch out for nylons and polyesters. They’re both lightweights but very durable. They can offer resistance to rips, wear, and tear. Check out the rip-stop nylon, it is worth a trial.

Capacity

A stress-free vacation is what every camper longs for. To achieve that you need to exercise patience and pay attention to the capacity of the tent, you want to get. Most tents are said to fit “average-sized” people but for other humans who are extremely tall there might be complications. Every manufacturer has a different idea about the size of two people. So to ensure maximum comfort for you and your partner you have to search for a tent that meets your qualities. A tent with little or no storage capacity for your survival gadgets should be ticked off the list too.

Mass

No one wants to carry heavy stuff while going camping, of course it creates stress already. The issue of tents being the heaviest, especially two people tents is a sour patch while thinking about campouts. Lightweight tents have been made and are still being made. They can easily be fixed into a backpack despite being regarded as part of the survival gear.

For all seasons

Buying a tent is essential but getting a good tent is one of the best decisions you can make. Some tents can’t withstand harsh weather conditions, tents that can get too hot and become stuffy, also tents that can’t keep out the cold. Getting a tent for all seasons is also economical because it allows you to save. Agreeably, an all-season tent can be slightly expensive but it is better to get it once than to spend more on three or more other normal tents. Therefore it is advisable to get a tent that sustains for three (3) or even four (4) seasons, can equally protect you, and suffer as little damage as possible. Prevention they say is better than a cure.

Comfort

An uncomfortable bed space can be very frustrating to talk less of an uncomfortable tent. Comfort is essential not only because it has to fit you but there has to be extra room at least. The major aspects to be considered in selecting a comfortable tent are; Height, floor space, and overall tent design. When considering the height of a tent, you have to consider yourself too. Your tent is comfortable if you’re able to stand without slouching (for average-sized people) For the extra tall ones, you should be able to at least kneel comfortably or stand straight if you can get a specially designed tent. The floor space is quite crucial too. Having enough floor space simply implies that you can keep your gear safely sheltered, and equally fit yourself and another person in the tent without any trouble. While the overall design is overlooked by many tent buyers, it is very important to note that too. Waterproof tents are not the most comfortable out there because breathing becomes slightly hard. Therefore if you eventually need to get a waterproof tent, make sure it is well ventilated (has windows) to avoid suffocation or excessive heat.

Multiple purpose Features

The two (2) person tent you long to get should do more than just create shelter from harm. It should have additional awesome features that can improve your camping experience. The additionals may include the following: mesh pockets, which can be useful in a variety of ways and are very essential for safekeeping of your survival gears, clothes, and some bits of other stuff you need to keep rather than throwing them all over the floor. This will also save space in your tent. Some tents may also include a loop on the ceiling, which can be used to attach a lamp which is pretty neat because you won’t get to stay in the dark all night long. There’s a probability that these extra features might add weight to your backpack but they’re equally essential. Not all tents come with a vestibule but some do. This area (vestibule) is used to keep extra gear and equipment safe from the elements, i.e animals, weather, other campers, etc.
