Solitaire

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The most important thing would be it's not free-standing. The model from Canada has better poles that are made of aluminum not fiberglass. I have used this tent at least twenty times in sun, rain, and snow! I sealed it once when I first picked it up and never had a problem with leaks! Its entrees are at one end and through the top, which takes a bit of getting used to. Lots of ventilation so never had any condensation issues at all. Weighs in at less then 3 pounds and cost less then $100. I really… Full review

Alpine Meadows

rated 5 of 5 stars I have proudly owned this tent for thirty years. Got it when I was 17. It will have to be pried from my hands when I am gone! I have used it for 30 years. All you need is a decent ground sheet, 6 tent pegs, and a pillow. Full review

K2 XT

Spitfire 1

rated 5 of 5 stars What rain? I've used this tent a handful of times in the relatively short time that I've owned it, and I've decided that I wholeheartedly love it. I've used it in temps down to about the mid-upper 40s and the temp inside the tent stayed very comfortable all night long, despite the very breathable mesh walls. I've used it in three rainstorms and in one very foggy field, and have stayed completely dry inside thus far. The rainfly completely covers all corners all the way to the ground, except for… Full review

Timberline 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Simple, effective, and functional. I've had two of these: both an American-made one bought in 1987 and an Asian one that I purchased around 2002. The only difference is that the Asian one seemed like it had different material for the tent floor. I didn't have a problem with either tent. If you prefer a longish tent, rather than a dome, the Timberline is one tent you should look at. The fly is good-quality and will keep you dry in a driving rain, but make sure you seam-seal the circular re-inforcement… Full review
