Here is our review of the best 2023 airbeam tents for family camping – all without classic solid poles. They are so easy to use that one person can set one up in just a few minutes.

These tents are sometimes described as inflatable or air tents, so this terminology implies you have inflated beams instead of poles. They have been around for over a decade, but their popularity has grown in the past few years.

One of the best things about inflatable tents is that you’ll never have broken poles again. These air beams will bend in windy conditions but bounce back instantly when the wind pressure changes.

Below you’ll find some huge tents, but one person can easily set up such a tent. They usually always come with a hand pump included. These are all multi-room structures that offer plenty of comfort. Regarding the fabric, you have synthetic and canvas tents here, and all of them are suitable for at least 3-season use.
