ALPS Mountaineering Extreme 3
Ease of Setup: Being a newbie, I struggled w/ the setup. However, my boyfriend could do it fairly quickly.
Price Paid: $150
The tent itself is excellent, lots of cool features that all add up to 5 stars. The only reason I would go down to 4 is the ease of setup. Granted, I'm a newbie and the tent belongs to my boyfriend so I didn't get the chance to attempt setup until we were out and I couldn't do it. However, being the pro that he is, he set it up in no time flat. All in all, for the price, it's an excellent deal.

Backpackers, keep your fellow trekkers and gear organized and comfortable during multi-day adventures with the ALPS Mountaineering Extreme 3 Tent.
The Extreme 3 is a freestanding three-pole tent with an extremely strong and sturdy pole configuration. Three lightweight aircraft alloy aluminum poles set up easily with pole clips that snap in place. Polyester rainfly and nylon floor are urethane coated, with factory-sealed seams for waterproofness. The two vestibules also serve as guy-out points that stabilize the tent when the weather gets a little nasty. Rainfly attaches securely to the tent with buckles and adjustable webbing; mesh ceiling vents allow airflow to prevent condensation inside the tent. Special buy.
