Midori Solo

rated 5 of 5 stars Great little tent for kayak camping, packs small, goes up easy, etc. I wanted a solo tent for trips that my wife didn't go on. We only camp a few times a year so far and have a Midori 3 that we like. My first use of the Midori Solo was for a three-day kayak trip on the northern Susquehanna River. The weather was nice but, from the other reviews of the Midori tents bad weather is not a problem for them. I'm 5'6" 180 lbs. and I have a bunch of headroom in the Solo. The Solo would probably fit a 6'… Full review

Timberline 2

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Good Scouting starter tent. To put it short, I learned how to camp in one of these for a couple years. Once taught how to set them up from an older scout I felt like a camping pro. These tents are easy for a small troop to buy and last a decent amount of time. They fare OK in inclement weather, but not so much in the tornado warning 3 inches of rain type of campout.  Again, it's a great little tent to start in, but you'll eventually find better ones out there that can handle the weather and comfort… Full review

Apex 2x

rated 3 of 5 stars Great for the starting camper. Great for the starting camper or car camper. I've had this tent for over 8 years now and it's still trucking along. I've had to replace the fiberglass poles with aluminum ones and spray the fly down with water repellent spray. Aside from that, this tent can take a beating, ranging from hail storms, 50+mph winds and 30F temps. It does weigh a lot compared to tents it's compared to, but it is super durable. Not sure how this version compares to the newest generation. Full review

Spitfire 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This tent is a great value. Very roomy for a solo tent, easy set up, durable, and under 3 lbs. Under $120. I love this tent! Many tents claim to be lightweight, but this is the real deal. Nice mesh, plus a good fly protects well.  It has a good ventilation window up top to reduce condensation. It has an easy setup. I use 4 stakes only including a stake out for the vestibule. I am pretty short (5'), and I don't even need the vestibule. I can get myself, and all of my gear inside with room to spare. Full review

Apex 2XT

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good product for day hiking and resting at night. Recommended for weekend or longer canoe adventures. Super easy to pitch and dries fast. Took this tent to Boundary Waters for 10 days and other weekend camping. The tent is easy to set up and has plenty of room for two with gear in the vestibule. If you are solo, all of that room is yours.   Was stable in some wind and survived 6" Ohio snow one night. Never got wet with a ground tarp. It vents very well and it never seem to be moist. It packs up… Full review
