This is a preview of a member exclusive premium article.

This series is part tutorial, part survey, and part opinion piece. I have allowed my opinions to come through a bit more strongly than normal here. Consider yourself warned! In Part 1 I defined the essentials of a tunnel tent and show how easy it is to pitch one in bad weather. In Part 2 I explored in more detail some features of a tunnel tent and list them for a number of tunnel tents from around the world. Part 3 consists of mini-reviews for each tent listed.
