Meramac 2

rated 4 of 5 stars For the price, this two-person tent is a good value. It is easy to set up, relatively lightweight and spacious enough for two people with some gear. I would buy it again. I bought this tent early this year and have only had a chance to use it this summer. For the money that I spent, I really like this tent. It is not a true backpacking tent, but it works well for backpacking. I'm not sure if this would be a tent that I would take on extended trips, but for weekend/multiple day trips, it's good.

Chaos 3

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is the smartest tent out there with mesh walls, factory sealed fly and floor, #8 zippers two vestibules, and a door on each side. I'm back into scouting and this fits my style perfectly as it is extremely light and stands up to the harsh New England weather without failing! I highly recommend this 3-4 person tent to anyone who takes camping to the next level. This tent is super easy to set up even in low/dark light because of the one-pole framing. The fly is full coverage and has roomy… Full review

Lynx 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This tent is the perfect size, fits my Big Agnes bag and pad perfectly with room at the head or foot for whatever items you need in your tent with you (headlamp, jacket, etc). Setup is quick and easy and I really like that you can sit up in it, so if you need to hunker down for a while and wait out the rain it is much better than other solo tents. I used this tent on a multi-day trip last week in the Wind River Range in Wyoming. The tent went up easy, was lightweight, and felt like everything was… Full review

Taurus 5 OF Outfitter

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Don't buy the OF tent. Do not buy it. Rubbish. NOT an outfitters tent. Do not buy it. Between shipping, a floor protector, and tent nearly 400 dollars. I USE a tent, I need a tent, 30 to 50 nights a year. Used it for one year and I would not dream of taking it into the backwoods, or the month-long trip down the river. The scout campground where I can set up under the roofed pavilion, sure. Completely disgusted with it. Completely disgusted with my waste of 400 dollars.  Large zippers? Yes, and… Full review

Vertex 4.0

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The ALPS Mountaineering Vertex tent is a durable lightweight tent that won't break the bank. It's great for backpacking and car camping. LIKES Size/weight/cost: You won't find many four-person backpacking tents for under $200. The Vertex 4 is around 9 pounds which isn't the lightest, but it does boast a large base area of 7'6" x 8'6" which is 64 sq ft. In comparison, most four-person tents are 50-56 sq ft. I've camped with 4 people, 3 people, and a dog and it's very roomy Waterproof: Both the fly… Full review
