Clam Quick-Set Screen Tent Comparisons to Help You Decide

Gone are the days of four people struggling to put together a flimsy screen tent shelter that falls apart after a few uses. When you’re ready to enjoy the outdoors but want protection from the sun and insects, you want something quick and effective. Let’s check out how Clam Quick-Set can keep you covered.

What Is a Clam Quick-Set Tent?

Clam Quick-Set tents are screen tents ready for on-the-go use. They’re quick and easy to set up; many only take 60 seconds to erect. They feature mesh to keep out even the smallest of bugs like no-see-ums. You can also enclose them with optional side panels.

All-Purpose Versus Camping Clam Quick-Set Tents

Clam has both all-purpose and camping tents. The all-purpose tent is what most people think of when they think of an outdoor shelter. It has a solid panel on top and mesh sides. You can also purchase panels to enclose the tent. 

The camping tent has the same great features but also includes a removable floor. This floor allows users to have a dry clean floor for a bed, your dogs, or whatever else you bring. This tent is multipurpose as you can also use it without the floor for a standard screened room. 


Clam Quick-Set tents come in a variety of sizes and styles. Regardless of your needs, there’s likely one that will fit the bill. Let’s take a look at which Clam screen tent might be best for your next camping trip. 

Traveler Screen Tent

The Traveler Screen Tent is Clam’s smallest screen house. It’s excellent for those with limited space but who still want shelter from the sun and bugs.

This four-sided tent takes less than 45 seconds to set up, and just one person can do it. Its smaller size is perfect for use at sporting events, the campsite, or even at the beach. At only 20 pounds, it’s easy to toss in the trunk for use at your next outdoor activity.
