Sometimes you’ll need to take cover…
Robinson’s has Vancouver Island’s largest display of pitched tents!
Whether it’s your home away from home on a fun-filled family camping trip, or a mere minimalist shelter from the elements on a light-and-fast trek, a high-quality, reliable tent will make any adventure that much better. Modern tents take advantage of advanced materials, so they are lighter, more durable and made for many specific different uses.
Robinson’s carries tents from the most respected tent makers, and we’re passionate about making sure we get you into a tent that’s right for your adventurous life. We have over 20 tents pitched upstairs—and staff who know them all inside and out—so you can easily see and compare the different brands and lines.
Your first step in buying a tent is determining how and when you plan to use it. There are four basic categories of tents to choose from: recreation, three-season backpacking, four-season convertible and expedition.
Recreation: These are generally more spacious and best suited for warmer-weather (or three-season) use. The emphasis here is on comfort over light weight.
Three-season backpacking: These lightweight tents are designed for summer and shoulder-season use. They offer excellent ventilation and large or dual doors for ease of use.
Expedition: The true workhorses. They are designed to withstand the worst weather conditions—high winds, heavy snow loads, etc.—and are brightly coloured in order to be visible during whiteouts.
