D&D4 Wiki

A tent is adventuring gear meant to use in a campsite as a portable shelter. It has no direct description in 4th edition. [PH:222][HotFL:335][HotFK:336]

  • Price: 10 gp
  • Weight: 20 lb.

The price and weight match the standard tent in D20 and Pathfinder. Pathfinder considers a tent of this size to be small (or normal), where it can house 1 medium creature or two small creatures. A tent of this size can be setup in 20 minutes, and packed back up in 10 minutes.[1]

There's no direct benefit written in the rulebook, although it's more than enough to discourage animals from entering.
