I have had my sugar gliders for maybe 2 or three years, i have taken them out in a tent since for bonding recently when i take them in the tent they climb on my and sleep in my pockets, and one of them allows me to pick them up. Should i try taking them out of the tent? are they Bonded to me yet?

Out of the tent WHERE??? not outside, never outside unless in an enclosure, pouch, small cage etc. Even a bonded glider could be in danger from a bird.
In a room in the house? Is it glider safe? do you trust them to stay with you?
can you catch them if they jump and run from you? do you have cats or dogs?

My gliders stay in a glider room, a room made safe for them to roam around. I can also have one jump on my shoulder and then go to kitchen, dogs on floor. They
will stay on my shoulder and do not jump off, they get meal worms in the kitchen
and they get a ride back to their room. The dogs are trained enough to not be
a serious danger if one did jump off and went exploring, plus I can catch a glider
pretty good from practice.

An unbonded glider can run fast, hide good, and might not come out easy. One
guy posted here his glider went into bottom of oven and he couldn't get it out. For me one shake of meal worm box and the glider comes running back. One of our glider
escaped and climbed break fireplace and went behind clock. My wife said if she was not watching she might have never guessed he was hanging behind a wall clock.

I would have fleece hand towel ready so you could grab them without getting bit.
make area as safe as possible, dogs outside/cats in another room, and make my first trip out of tent a short one. Maybe have a second person ready to help you get the glider if he runs.

ok, that is good.

you posted "should I try taking them out of tent?" so I did not know
where you are going out of tent.

You don't want them to find a place to hide.
You don't want them chewing on power cords.
and you don't want them inspecting unused outlets.

so if you can catch them without much trouble, you could provide a safe
room and watch them closely.
I have pictures of my glider room in my profile, that is before I put cage in it.
