Fishhook UL 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Does the job in all kinds of weather. I have used this in the snow, in the swamp, and on the trail in wind and rain, and don't forget the sunshine. The neat thing is this tent is lightweight and has no zippers. Sets up easy, just remember to have the pole system right side up so you can set the crossbar on top. Easy to stake and pitches taut and tight. Stable in all conditions. Tends to accumulate moisture rather than repel it, but have never had a leak. Just a hassle to try and wait for it to dry… Full review

Copper Spur UL3

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great tent! It is surprisingly lightweight given how spacious and well-vented it is. Two exits with two vestibules allow plenty of storage and ease of entry/exit. I got this tent for backpacking with my 9 and 12 y.o. sons. Though I wanted the space for three people, I didn't want to carry a massive tent. The Copper Spur UL3 really has absolutely no compromises for the usage that I've intended for it. Usage & Conditions:  I've used the tent for about 6 backpacking trips totaling about… Full review

Insulated Double Z

rated 4 of 5 stars The Big Agnes Insulated Double Z sleeping pad is a moderately lightweight full length sleeping pad that is very comfortable for limited 3-season use. It falls a bit short of its temperature specification, so is a bit on the cool side for early spring or late fall. The interesting internal “guy-line” structure makes it very stable against rolling off in the middle of the night, but potentially can shorten its usable lifetime. Overall, the Double Z is very good, though it does have some flaws. Full review

Air Core

rated 4 of 5 stars Sleeping comfort is worth the hassle. Great pad to sleep on during warmer months (there is an insulated version for colder temperatures). The version I own is a rectangular one. I'm able to fit on the pad head to toe (5'8" here). Pad is "easy" to set up: just unroll and breathe to inflate. Be prepared to huff and puff for at least 2 minutes to get it inflated. The sleeping comfort is worth the hassle. Some reviewers complain that the pad is "noisy" but it hasn't bothered me nor my sleeping companions. … Full review

Seedhouse SL2

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Light and roomy for one, cramped for two, poor design features. I own two Big Agnes tents. I am an experienced light/ultralightweight backpacker. My equipment is for 3-season, high altitude backpacking, 10-day to 2 weeks most trips. This tent is light and easy to set up quickly in case of approaching storms. With proper extra guy lines, it can withstand fairly high winds and rain. It has several design flaws. First, the vestibule is only about 8 sq. ft. which is not large enough to cover a backpack,… Full review
