Alpine Meadows

rated 5 of 5 stars Best camping tent I have seen or used over 30 years in 4-season use: monsoon downpours, snow, high wind, both 2-man and a 4-man. Never had the problems others had with their wide variety of tents. I pine for its discontinued presence. With some of the improvements made for tents today, they could be applied to the Alpine Meadows design: snaps instead of hooks, faultless zippers, maybe in the polyester fiber makeup. If I had known this tent was to be discontinued, I'd have bought six more to pass… Full review

Equinox 6

rated 5 of 5 stars I purchase six of the Equinox 6 tents for a Girl Scout 5-day trip to Canada. Very roomy 10'x11' slept eight 9-year-olds per tent, 15 years later still in great shape. Purchased these six tents from L.L. Bean in 1998 for a Junior Girl Scout trip to Quebec, Canada. 23 8 to 11 year olds. Very sturdy and easy to put up even for 8 year olds. The only problem is that the floor weather stripping needs to be resealed, but easy to do. The floor material is very water tight (we once filled one with 8 inches… Full review

Timberline 4

rated 4 of 5 stars Great for motorcycle camping under most conditions. I went through two of these traveling by motorcycle from Key West to British Columbia and many trips in between over a number of years. It was huge for one person and even with my young daughter it was still big. It was even comfortable with another adult. I stayed dry when many around me were hanging out sleeping bags to dry. In well over 100,000 miles of motorcycle travel these tents only let me down twice. First was in a open field at Cheticamp… Full review


rated 3.5 of 5 stars Simple but strong tunnel with enlarged head and shoulder room due to extra long middle hoop. Love the tent, always have. This review is based on an old tent gifted to me last month, designed by Eureka and made in China sometime in the 1990s I'm guessing. The original 3-hoop tunnel with the wide and tall middle, and I find it hard to believe two things: I'm the first to review it it seems, and Eureka has stopped making it. Very easy to put up, even having never put one up before. Just peg the front… Full review

Tetragon 5

rated 4 of 5 stars A good three-season tent. Lots of options, easy to set up, and durable. I purchased this tent back in 2012 (it was the 2011 version). During that time I have camped out using this tent in all sorts of weather—from raging rain and wind to single digit temps, to the heat of the summer. In all that this tent has held up like a champ. I usually go camping with the Boy Scouts and this tent has become my go-to tent for backpacking trips, and general campouts of a few days.  The tent is a freestanding… Full review
