Tents without mesh or with fully closable vents?

Postby tubeamps » Tue Aug 11, 2009 8:00 am

I'm looking for a tent and am concerned about dust. Are there any tents out there that don't have any mesh or have fully zippered windows? I can seal up a bit of mesh if needed, but all of the tents I have seen have the entire roof made out of mesh. The tent is for 1 person without too much stuff and I'm not too concerned with size. I'd prefer to not spend more than $100. Thanks!

The tent you are looking for is a Four Season Tent.

Unfortunately they usually start in the $200s and go up from there.

Or you can try to seal a cheap tent as suggested.
