Zenith 3 AL Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great tent—easy to set up, roomy, and dry inside despite the weather. For a bomb-proof tent great for backpacking (even though it's not ultralight), you can't beat the Zenith for twice the price! I notice the review info denotes this tent as discontinued, and that's not entirely true. ALPS makes the Zenith for Sierra Trading Post, and it's intermittently available. Beyond that, ALPS also makes this same tent for other retailers under the Zephyr moniker. The Zephyr is readily available,… Full review

Featherlite Air Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable for back or side sleeping, nice and light, super easy to inflate, and no headaches from blowing into the valve! What more can you ask for? This mattress is light (under 21oz), comfortable (3.5" thickness!), and inflates easily with the built-in CPR-style pump (65-75sec to inflate). I've slept a couple dozen nights on this, and I wouldn't go afield without it in the warmer months. It's no good for cold weather due to a lack of insulation, but for warmer temps, it's the best camp mattress… Full review

Lynx 2 AL

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Decent backpacking tent for getting into the backpacking world without breaking the bank. Bought this tent as my first backpacking tent. I had been family camping before but wanted something more suited for backpacking without breaking the bank. Easy to set up and stays taut as long as you set it up correctly. There was some condensation on it in the morning but nothing that couldn't be shaken off easily. At over 5 lbs, it is nowhere near ultra light, but it does the job. In the end, it will be… Full review

Extreme 3 Outfitter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Roomy and light, perfect hideout for our canoeing and hiking expeditions. Setup is easy and color coded—very easy to figure out. Especially with symmetrical rain fly and only two poles. Stability is excellent, even in high winds and storms there was minimal sway to the structure. Weathered perfectly—first trip out was 10 days in Northern MN and we received flood-level amounts. When it would rain for 6 hours straight, a small drip would occur in the seam of a zipper, but caking on a little Carmex… Full review

Chaos 3

rated 4 of 5 stars The Alps Mountaineering Chaos 3 tent deserves a serious look. I've owned numerous tents over the past three decades of camping, all from big name outdoor companies. With the recent delamination of the sealed seams on my current 15-year-old tent and all four kids are grown and gone, I began to research specs, pricing and reviews of reasonably priced tents that would fit my pursuits as a backpacker/paddler/bikepacker/carcamper...along with my budget. After months of reading, I pulled the trigger and… Full review
