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.

Meramac 3

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent keeps me dry in a downpour, but still offers plenty of cross ventilation. It's light for a three-man tent. I tested this tent in -22 degree weather and a foot of snow. I chose this model because it had two doors and sufficient room for all my gear to be protected from the elements, and although I'm a solo camper, it allowed me an emergency egress. That emergency was a black bear that was too curious and tried to enter my tent late one evening. Although this is a three-season tent, it is… Full review

Lynx 1

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a lightweight backpacking tent. It sets up easy...and should you decide to move your tent after setup it's easy to move it put together. I purchased this tent for a backpacking camping trip to prepare us for part of the Appalachian Trail. It was lightweight, compact, and extremely easy to set up. I purchased the mat to go under it and loved that they clip together (highly recommend). I have only used it on two trips so far and will be using it again on my third. I'm 5'5" and slept comfortably… Full review
