rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the best and most reliable one-person backpacking tent on the market today. This is the best and most reliable one-person backpacking tent on the market. I have now used it over several years for extended hiking and fishing trips in a very remote part of the Scottish Highlands where I have at times experienced some of the most atrocious weather imaginable. This tent has withstood everything that mother nature has thrown at it and has never leaked a drop. With the optional footprint groundsheet… Full review

Nammatj 3 GT

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic base camp tent for one or two people. I will not review the tech specs. These are available from Hilleberg. Suffice to say their specs match my observations. Have used this tent five times now. Extremely easy to set up. Three hoops and four pegs, that’s it for initial setup. There are many more pegs to make this tent completely sound. Very roomy and nice high vestibule. Constant height inner tent and vestibule are benefits. I have had no problems with condensation. It is very strong. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Buy this tent! The best quality tent I have seen in my 61 years. (See follow up after 80 days of use) Nothing comes close—NOTHING! It is light, packs small and tight as a drum. No seam tape to get scabby in 5 years. Attention to detail, great hardware and the fabric is unbelievable. Big enough on the inside for my Exped long wide SyncellMat. A rain gutter on the vent cover! I intend to be a bicycle touring tramp in my retirement and I needed a single tent to see me through every kind of climate. Full review

Kaitum 3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars One of the most spacious, strong, and easy-to-pitch tents in this weight category. It equally fits for family trips as well as for severe weather conditions. But you pay for that in full — it is not freestanding and the cost is well above the barrier for most potential buyers. Note There are two different Kaitum 3 tents on my photos. The ‘2016 green tent was purchased initially and served as a base for this review. The ‘2017 “sand” tent was delivered to me as a warranty replacement in… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars The Akto tent is strong enough, and the quality suitable for 4-season use, but its size is more suitable for 3-season use. This tent is highly recommended if you are wanting a most reliable, quality, one-man tent. The tent is relatively easy to pitch once it is realized that the angle that the four guy-lines are placed is consequential to the full utilization of the tent's interior space. The Akto pitches beautifully tightly and is extremely stable in the highest of winds and storm. The Akto is… Full review
