Chaos 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Fantastic tent, wish I didn't have to carry it. Can only recommend to those not looking to cut weight or plan on running headlong into a storm. I've used this tent on a JMT thru-hike and a variety of other short trips. I appreciated the crap out of it when we were stuck in random thunderstorms for days, but cannot stand how much it weighs. Setup is relatively straightforward and easy. Can be done under the rainfly to minimize water inside. Pitches beautifully as every freestanding tent should. … Full review

Meramac 6

rated 4 of 5 stars Very good for a low price tent. I've used this tent for camping for one fall and winter so far. I thought it was the best low price tent available. The ones from the big box stores may be a little cheaper, but they are too flimsy and shoddy to use at all. The Meramac's tent material is comparable to that of other tents available from outdoors stores. I have two smaller tents tents for backpacking and plan to replace the Camp Dome 4 that was destroyed in high winds a couple of years ago, for weekend… Full review

Lynx 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This tent is great. It's tough, easy to set up, and has yet to leak. I have used this tent about once month year round in the Adirondacks for the past two years and on an 8-day hike of the Northville Placid Trail. It has never let me down. Summer it vents nicely, spring and fall keeps the rain out and holds up to some mild winter snow and wind.   I got it because I wanted something inexpensive in case my dog ruined the floor, and two years later my 45 lb dog has yet to pop a hole in the floor.

Mystique 1.5

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Another great value from ALPS. Same review as the Mystique 2.0 tent. I own both this and a 2.0. BOTH are fantastic values. I hiked the Olympic Mountains in Washington (Read RAINS A LOT) and have no problem whatsoever with either of them. I usually use the 2 to allow for more space. Unless I'm trying to cut weight, then I'll switch down to the 1.5. Are there better tents??? Yes, BUT there is no better value tent in this style that I have seen in 25 years of being a gear head. I've had over 23 different… Full review
