Backcountry 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Rugged, truly free-standing solo tent. I bought this over another solo tent because of the free-standing setup. ┬áNot knowing that this was considered a good tent by others I used it with no preconceptions. This dog-gone tent worked great, packed small enough and did not weigh a ton. At the time of my first backpacking trip with this I thought it might be a bit heavy, but for its price and even compared to pricier tents it doesn't weigh all that much now that I've done some research. It has kept… Full review

Zeus 2 Classic

rated 3 of 5 stars One of the aluminum poles broke. Strong wind while sleeping inside. I bought this tent used. I examined everything for any damage or stress. I found one corner inside where the seam cover had come up slightly. I did patch this with brush-on silicone, although it may not have been necessary. The second night of a four-night trip one of the poles broke in the middle of the night. The tent was erect as I was sleeping inside. The wind had picked up during the night and this is the only possible explanation… Full review

Timberline SQ 4XT

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best tent for scouts. After a lot of research and finding out what other scout troops were using I decided on this tent. It is an upgrade to the four-person Timberline that has been around for decades. Like the older Timberline it is a true four-person tent with two doors, but unlike the original, one door has a large vestibule for wet boots or gear. The inner tent has a larger bathtub floor and the outer tarp comes down farther eliminating one of the flaws of the original rain splash getting in. Full review

Tetragon 5

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It would be 5 stars if the one pole segment end had not cracked so easily. Otherwise, easy single person setup and it has thrived in numerous Northeast thunderstorms without a drop of water leaking! I bought this tent about 5 years ago. Used for car camping on multiple occasions. It sets up easy (only two poles) and has been water tight in some big storms. The front vestibule is a bit small, but I am tall, at 6'3", so this is relative. Nice height inside the tent. It also offers a vertical and horizontal… Full review

K-2 XT

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bulletproof expedition grade tent at home in severe weather or just for a family outing. I bought this tent used after returning to the world of backpacking following a too-long hiatus. I'd spent too many cold nights in a three-season tent where the wind howled through the bug netting sides and decided that I needed a good four-season tent. Given the prices, however, I spent a lot of time researching until I finally decided on the K2-XT. Although I don't need an expedition grade tent it has come… Full review
