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

Summit Tent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great tent after small, easy modification. This tent is easy to pitch, took about 10 minutes by myself. Used in high winds with stake outs and was very stable. Rained all day, and not a drop on the inside. The top lets you see the stars at night. I'm one guy, so plenty of room with a cot and end table. Here what you do to fix the rainfly problem. Buy the rainfly only for the Taurus 4. It has the same dimensions 7'6" x 8'6" but this tent is a bit taller. No problem, the fly fit a bit shorter, but… Full review

Zephyr 1

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a well made, roomy 1-person tent. Roomy 1-person tent... If you are a bigger person or claustrophobic then this is the tent for you. The tent is free standing with aluminum poles, no see-um type mesh walls with a tub style base. The fly is pretty substantial and should easily shed rain and snow. It has a small window that you can look out of. The front "vestibule" can be rolled back for extra ventilation. It buckles onto the tent and also the footprint where the poles and stakes lock down.
