There is nothing like sleeping under the stars. When looking for a tent you want something that is light, packs small, and is quick to set up. The key features are size and weight, a full-rain fly, durable materials, waterproof, and ventilation. A tent should have enough room under its vestibule, similar to a covered porch, to store your boots and helmet when it rains. Having an extra piece of material, a tarp or footprint, will make your tent last longer. Just make sure that your ground covering does not extend past the bottom of the tent. Otherwise, the tarp will collect water and you will end up sleeping in a puddle.
