Lynx 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, packs small. Goes up easy. With vestibule, plenty of room for sleeping and your gear. Great for backpackers who don't share a tent. My first foray into the lightweight backpacking tent. It fit nicely into my pack as it was small enough to lie sideways right into the sleeping bag compartment. It has two poles with the simplest "X" setup design — no origami skills required. Inside I can lay down completely, AND, do a complete sit-up without touching my head on any part of the roof.

Zephyr 3.0

rated 4 of 5 stars Great basic beginners backpacking tent! The Zephyr is the same tent as the Zenith but marketed under a different name. I've used my tent on approximately 12 nights backpacking and about 25 nights car camping mostly on the AT and in the Midwest. Here's the rundown: Setup: After getting used to the asymmetrical pole arrangement, setup is super easy! Occasionally while setting up in the dark, it does still take me a minute or two to figure out which side of the tent is which. However, I've never had… Full review

Zephyr 2.0

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent, especially for the price. Overall this tent has served me very well. I bought it for bike touring originally and it has seen at least 60 nights of use in the two years I have owned it. Overall, it has held up well over time. I am careless with leaving it up in the sun and the fabric has still held up fairly well. I have used it in temperatures from 30-90 degrees and it has worked well in all conditions. Even in downpours, the tent has remained dry on the inside. With the fly off, it… Full review

Zion Pack

rated 3 of 5 stars This is a good first pack for a beginner. It is easy to adjust and holds plenty of gear for a week on the trail. I bought the ALPS Zion pack in 2015. I used it on a one-week trek of about 30 miles in 2016 and plan to use it on a two-week trek of over 50 miles in 2017, plus shorter work up treks. Since I bought it on sale for under $100 I consider it a good pack for the money. It holds plenty of gear and I like strapping my tent on top and my sleeping bag to the bottom. The external pouches work… Full review

Meramac 2

rated 3 of 5 stars Great little tent for car camping on a clear night on dry ground. I took a chance buying this tent, knowing that the fly didn't cover the doors was a bit worrisome but other reviews I read didn't find this to be a problem, even in heavy rain. It's been crazy hot lately but hasn't rained too much, so I chose ventilation over a full-length rain fly. Bad decision.   My first time using it was the rainiest weekend I can recall in a long time, and the tent really did not perform well. Unfortunately… Full review
