The 6 Types of Portable Outdoor Shelters

All tents offer portability, but certain types may be more suited to your specific venue or transportation capabilities. It's important to consider factors like the duration of setup, the number of components, and the anchoring method to ensure you select the best tent for your needs.

  1. Pop-up Tent: The go-to choice for portable outdoor shelter, pop-up tents are a win in terms of portability and convenience. They come with a compact size and a convenient transportation roller bag, making them your go-to partner for on-the-go shelter. Ideal for a weekly farmers' market or even function as a portable garage for protected auto work, pop-up tents are the epitome of convenience and ease.
  2. High Peak Tents: These are also popular portable options, particularly due to their small footprint, available in sizes like 10x10 or 20x20. Known for their ease of setup, high peak tents are often referred to as 'weekender tents' for their ability to travel and be installed quickly – perfect for short-term shelter needs and weekend celebrations.
  3. Pole Tents: When it comes to large portable structures, pole tents stand out. Their structure, requiring only central and leg poles, means fewer pieces are needed for assembly and no heavy equipment required, enhancing their portability. However, it's essential to note that they are best suited for grass or other stake-able surfaces.
  4. West Coast Frame Tent: Frame tents are designed to accompany you anywhere and can be set up on virtually any surface, including parking lots, thanks to our tent ballasting system. The sturdy frame structure not only makes these tents ideal for long-term usage but also ensures that every inch underneath the tent is fully usable. This maximizes the space available, making frame tents an excellent choice not just for events, but also as efficient storage solutions.
  5. Clear Tents: As a type of frame tent, clear party tents are also designed with portability in mind. But remember that clear top tents, much like greenhouses, have the ability to absorb sunlight, leading to an increase in temperature underneath your tent. Their anodized aluminum poles are not only lightweight for optimal portability and ease of installation but also extremely strong, offering a balance of convenience and durability. 
  6. Keder Tents: While being the top option for long-term tent installations, keder tents also offer portability if needed. As another type of frame tent, they feature the lightweight nature of anodized aluminum poles, making transportation straightforward and hassle-free, even for longer-term storage or shelter needs. They commonly serve as dependable shelters for vehicles like cars, motorcycles, or boats, especially when garages don’t have space.

No matter your event's nature or location, our range of portable shelters ensures that you can find the ideal tent solution.
