I'm heading out this weekend, and the temperature is expected to drop below freezing, with a 20% chance of rain.
I have two tents, a lightweight 2-person, which I primarily use for backpacking, and a medium weight 3-person, which I use for car, canoe and short trek camping. Both tents are have two layers (inner-outer tent style, as opposed to single wall).
I'm not concerned with weight, and have an appropriate sleeping bag and clothing.
Which tent would be warmer under these conditions? It's a toss up between the smaller volume, which would heat up faster, and the heavier fabric which would retain heat better.
