When warm weather hits and you can't get enough of the outdoors, tents and screen houses keep you comfortable and bug free. However, choosing the best screen house tent depends on what your outdoor setup looks like. If you're assembling your screen tent for the long haul in your backyard, amply sized designs provide plenty of room for the whole family and guests. If you're headed for camp and want to create your own pest-free oasis, pop-up designs with collapsible frames might be a better fit, so you can quickly assemble and disassemble between trips.
Your screen tent is going to be spending almost the whole summer outdoors, so make sure it's built to endure sun, thunderstorms and everything in between. Waterproof seals and fully bound seams help keep water out if a sudden downpour strikes, keeping you and the family nice and dry until it clears up. Reflective tops provide an important barrier against heat and UV rays that shields you and your tent from the sun.
Once you're setting up your outdoor alcove, keeping cool and comfortable is a top priority. Breathable mesh walls provide plenty of ventilation and fresh air during an outdoor get together or family dinner. Screen tents with windows let you adjust the amount of airflow coming in, helping you create your perfect balance of enjoying fresh air while staying at a manageable temperature.
