In a winter, the inner tent of a pyramid tent can help keep you dry if it rains. However, you can also skip the inner tent altogether to save weight and bulk. This is especially helpful if you’re camping in the snow. But if you prefer the warmth of a cozy inner tent, you can opt for an outer tent with mesh hoods and waterproof groundsheets.
