Best Selling Backpacking Tent

Mountain Trails Current Hiker

The Mountain Trails Current Hiker is extremely lightweight at 3.5 pounds and compact to pack.

Although the manufacturer claims it can sleep two people they had better be either 2 children or 2 small adults. Many users have commented it worked only for one person a not two regular size adults as claimed.

I do not recommend this tent unless it is being purchased for Boy Scouts, other children or adults of smaller size.

Overall this is a lightweight and inexpensive tent so it is not surprising it is such a top best seller in this category at Amazon!

The list above is the best selling backpacking tents according to Amazon. We have found Amazon to have the best prices for tents and other outdoor gear. Clicking the above Amazon links provides additional information and product reviews.

Most of these are 3 or 4 season tents that were on the list last month, although in a slight different order. Also not surprisingly all of these best sellers are rated highly by customers who have purchased them. All these camping tents will be lightweight and compact in your backpack as I have removed heavier tents from the list.
