10 Best Pop Up Camping Tents in 2020


We have prepared for you the list with best pop up camping tents, all Amazon bestselling models, so please have a look and see what makes them so popular.

There are several types of pop up tents here in the list. Some are with a spring wire so all you have to do is to throw it in the air and it will open up by itself. Such a wire can only be packed as a circle, so you twist it and get an 8-shape profile and then fold. The result is a circular structure which is flat but it remains with a relatively large diameter.

The other type are tents that you open similar to an umbrella. These are easy to use and when packed they become a tube-shaped structure which may be small enough to be carried attached to a backpack or you can transport it on an electric mountain bicycle. But usually these are car camping tents.

Yet another type are tents that are frequently called instant setup tents. They have telescopic legs which you simply extend, normally you have a popup button that clicks and locks such a pole into its desired length. This type is usually a bit long when packed but with a small diameter, so this is a type for places with a car access. These tents can be very large and you can easily use some inflatable chairs inside, with such chairs you do not have to think about damaging the tent’s floor.

Why using instant pop up tents

Regardless of which type you use, all these tents are with an incredibly easy and fast setup, literally in seconds and most of the time below one minute setup time. One person can easily make such a tent ready. So if you are on a tour and change the camping place frequently, this is an excellent choice for you.

Yet another important feature is that these are usually freestanding tents. If you are not familiar with this terminology, the meaning is that the tent is self-supporting and in principle you do not have to stake it down to the ground. There may be situations where this is not possible, for example if you have to camp on a rock or on a frozen ground. Yet another case is when the ground is sand or gravel and it simply does not keep the stakes.

But do not ever miss to stake such a tent properly if this is possible, or put some stones inside. This might save you from very unpleasant situations. In the case of a sudden wind, your great tent may be blown away in seconds.

Regarding the materials, these are synthetic tents, so you normally have nylon or polyester, and on the floor you can have polyethylene. If you would rather have a canvas tent, please check this list with some excellent models. The poles are usually steel and fiberglass, in more expensive models you can expect to get aluminum. You might need a chair for camping so check this list with padded camping chairs.
