Confused between Nemo Aurora 2P and Mountain Hardware Mineral King 2P

I'm a beginner camper confused between Nemo Aurora and Mountain Hardware 2P. Suggestions welcome.

@RidsKShah thanks so much for reaching out - welcome to camping and to our community! Where are you headed for your first rounds of camping?

Here's a quick comparison of the Nemo Aurora 2P and Mountain Hardwear Mineral King 2P tents:

  • To start, they are really similar! They are both freestanding, 2-person tents with lots of mesh, 2 poles and 2 doors, and an included footprint.
  • Although the same length, the Mineral King is slightly wider (2") and therefore slightly heavier, so if you're backpacking, this might be a consideration; if not, the extra width might be nice!

Hope this helps; let us know if we can provide any additional recommendations!
