Recent Four-Season Tent Reviews

Black Diamond Squall

rated 4 of 5 stars Good for $400, but some improvements should be made. My Squall works for 5 years. A rain and wind-resistance I would rate for - 5°, snow proof - 5°. I used it up to 4500 m. The most problem is a pole construction aka Y-shape. Try to assemble it in a windy environment and you got nervous. The same for outer tent which you need to put on only after the inner tent is standing. But try this when it is heavy rain...nightmare. Small pockets only for pair of socks and radio. But it is really light and… Full review

Eureka! 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

Sierra Designs Divine Lightning

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent single wall, side entry, no fly, material very breathable. Small, light, extremely efficient tent, weather worthy. Packs down to the size of loaf of bread in pack. If frosty night, just shake off ice in a.m. and sun dry before hit trail. Easy setup despite what some reviewers say; used on countless trips, my 1st choice - lightest, smallest tent I could find. Very awesome tent. Definitely highly recommend if you need to keep pack weight down, small footprint. Best for Sierra trips or anywhere… Full review

The North Face Northwind

rated 1 of 5 stars Outstanding design, simple to erect. However if it rains you might as well go and sleep outside!!! The tent was returned to North Face and nothing was done. It was returned to me as it left—pretty disgusting from a company like North Face. How can North Face get it so wrong? All they need to do to make the tent a five star+ tent is to make it waterproof, end of story. Full review

Hilleberg Staika

rated 5 of 5 stars Best winter alpine tent for my needs, used since 2005. Setup: Easy, in good weather once poles are erected, open doors to easier reach for center top clips. Stability: Superior even with only 6 guy lines fastened. Weather Resistance: Superior summer and winter Ventilation: High placed dual vents superior, even when raining or snowing Room and Storage: Sleeping space very good for two. Vestibules very easy access, less volume compared to tunnel tents. Packability: Oversized spacious bag that packs… Full review

Sierra Designs Night Watch CD

rated 5 of 5 stars Genius tent for the adventurer — the original Nightwatch (one door, blue/white). Loved this tent from around '94 until it was stolen in the post (!!) in 2013.  I am a former national park ranger and have spent A LOT of time in backcountry. This tent served me extremely well in sustained wind storms of 70mph+; snow camping in the Cascades of WA state, hot dusty Black Rock Desert in Nevada (you can keep most of the dust outside), heavy rainstorms in WA State.  The ONLY thing this tent doesn't… Full review

Eureka! Caddis

rated 4 of 5 stars I've had mine since 1977. Very strong, but much heavier than today's lightweights. After nearly 40 years I intend to reseal the floor and seams and continue using it. It truly is a classic I've used this in Montana and Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania. I've used it with the kids, with the wife, and with some smelly guys. It's very durable. The tube construction makes for excellent ventilation. Even in the cold it is very comfortable and spacious for two.  A bit heavy to carry. One of my poles… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Trango 2

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a mountaineering tent, not an ultralight. It is for environments where failure is not an option. It is built to take the beating it will get on windy, cold, and possibly unforgiving terrain. It is large enough to do what you need to do to survive while entirely protected from the elements. It is not a beginner's tent. The fly is adequate. Use in less than normal environments and terrain is expected. Wind proofing is expected and achieved. The materials are top drawer, but not built to be… Full review

Moss Tents Big Dipper

rated 5 of 5 stars Great, strong tent, has served me for 20 years. I bought this tent in 1995, and it has seen over 100 nights of use, backpacking with friends (it fits four adults easily), Scouts, etc. The vestibule is huge, the materials first class, holds up to strong winds no problem. Setup is OK once you get used to it, with color-coded pole sleeves. It vents well with two doors and lots of screen. Overall, just a classic tent I've never regretted purchasing. I use a bivy now for backpacking, but I'll keep this… Full review
