Campers Have Expressed Through Amazon And The Winners Are Giggling In Going To The Bank

Camping Tent, Backpacking Tent

The campers have spoken or purchased, and through that, Amazon.com has listed the best tents of 2011 based on the sales through the website.

It’s no surprise that Coleman topped the list. The brand is still the number one outdoor brand. Based from the reviews found in Amazon.com, Coloman’s Instant 14×10 ft tent is the best tent available. This tent is big enough for eight individuals to fit in. The two-door feature is also an attraction for couples who are bringing their family along with them.

Then the Swiss Gear Montreaux ten-person dome tent follows after Coleman. This is also considered the best of the large tents there are in the market.

The Columbia Cougar Flats II Family Cabin Dome Tent is another large tent to be considered. I’m not very familiar with Columbia but now that it’s in the list and a lot of people are satisfied, I might just try it.

My new favorite brand is Eureka and I’m so glad five of its tents made it to the list. Their tents made the fourth up to the seventh spot in the list and also the tenth spot. Eureka is the only brand who had their tents made the majority of the list found in Amazon. The Copper Canyon 1512 Cabin Tent for 12 persons took the fourth spot. This is also one of the more talked about large tents in the camping blogosphere. Eureka brands that are in the fifth through seventh spots are: Copper Canyon 1312 for eight people; the Sunrise 11 Family for six persons and the Tetragon 1610.

Another Coleman hit is the Weather Master 8 tent followed by a tent by Wenzel Kondike, now this brand is a surprise and it may be talked about in the next few camping seasons. Kondike is trying to dominate the outdoor market with their new products.

Rounding up the best tents of 2011 is the Eureka power tent, another large tent from the brand.

Surprise, surprise, not a single North Face tent is on the list. This is probably a kick in the butt for the outdoor company. More brands are rising and trying to get to the top. There are a lot of brands today that seems to last for a very long time. North Face, where are you now? You have made the best tents a few years back and the large tents that you made were so great.

Nice job for the brand Eureka. As for Coleman, they better develop some new tents otherwise Kondike might take the number one spot.
