A dome tent is among the most popular tent styles for families and campers who won't be carrying the tent from place to place. Dome tents are easy to set up, but keep in mind that they come in varying strengths, and some might not the best option for unsheltered areas or high-level mountainside camping. When shopping for dome tents, check out the make of the tent poles. The most inexpensive dome tent will likely have fiberglass poles, which are not as light as aluminum poles, but they are cheap to replace if they break, and they can serve you well if tent weight is not a key consideration.

Dome tents are available from several manufacturers, and a Marmot tent is a superb choice for a dome tent. The Marmot Limelight 3 tent features the strongest pole attachment clips in the industry, and a field repair kit that can handle anything from a rip in the rainfly to a broken pole. Other features include a mesh ceiling for ventilation and comfort, a UV-resistant rainfly, and internal storage pockets.
