Can a tent fit in a backpack?
Generally if your tent is around 4 or 5 pounds, then it will fit in an adult-sized backpack. If your tent is a 4-person or a 6-person, you may have to split up the tent material (rainfly, tent stakes, etc) among several backpackers.
How heavy should a tent be for backpacking?
Generally speaking, a tent should weigh approximately 2.5 pounds per person. Remember that when backpacking with multiple people, you can split the weight by dividing the tent, rain fly, and poles.
Can you put a tent in a stuff sack?
Don’t bother trying to use the stuff sack that your tent came in. This will create bulk, and take up way too much space. Instead, simply stuff the tent fabric inside your backpack, but not with the the tent poles and stakes inside.
