Casper 15

rated 2 of 5 stars If you're a tallish or largish woman like me (5'8", size XL), you probably won't fit inside. I bought this for backpacking, as it is fairly small and light, but it didn't work for me. I couldn't fit in this bag. Granted, I'm 5'8", so at the upper limit of their height range, but sticking out the end wasn't the only problem. I wear a women's XL, so I'm definitely bigger, but still within straight clothing sizes...but I couldn't zip it up with my arms inside. I was cold as expected, but it was way… Full review

Alpenlite XT

rated 4 of 5 stars It's a good tent, but I was expecting a little more. I was excited to see what Eureka could produce on their higher end.  When I bought the tent used and first hefted it, I was surprised at how heavy it was. Though it compacts down fairly well, it is heavy for the square footage. Upon pitch, I was happy to see that the entire bottom 1/4 of the tent unzips to nearly 360° screen. I thought this would be the strong point of the tent because then it could be used in the summer without turning it… Full review

Scorpion

rated 4 of 5 stars Great vestibules, spacious, heavy. The setup is easy after first use. The tent uses a central pole "hub" located on the top of the tent. The 4 main poles plug into the hub and radiate out down to the corners. The poles have a bend in them that creates a more vertical wall, expanding head and foot room. The diameter of the 4 main poles is significantly larger than most modern tents which I think adds to the weight (appox 3/4 in). The pitch was rather taut without the guy lines. With guy lines, the… Full review

Spitfire 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for the $$, and reliable. Aside from going to a hammock, you cannot beat the size/weight of this little killer. It is pretty darn reliable. I took this backpacking on a few occasions where I needed more security than a hammock could offer, or needed room for my dog. Goes up super easy, and has a very simple design. Has enough room for your pack or your dog, as long as either isn't too big. Top vent is a little questionable, as it is a semi-rigid piece of material that secures upward to Velcro… Full review

Timberline 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Great motorcycle/car/canoe tent have had mine for over 20 years. A few years back I got a Timberline 6. Don't like it nearly as well the extra height makes it much slower to set up. I have had a Timberline 4 since 1987. Camped in all kinds of weather way wetter and colder than I would now. It always performed well. Just watch placement. Don't set up so wind is blowing in your fly. It is a great all around work horse. It may not be the best at any one thing, but it does a lot well. Setup is easy… Full review
