Lightning 2 FL

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent sets up extremely easily, even alone, and at just over 3# packed weight, is still super light. I could set it up with the footprint and guying out the vestibules in about 6 minutes by myself. It tears down and packs back up in about the same time. This tent was an excellent choice for my week-long hike in the Emigrant Wilderness. Although made to sleep two, it is still an excellent choice if going it alone. I highly recommend it for anyone on a long outing or just a long weekend. This… Full review

Orion AST

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this tent!!! I love this tent! I have had it over 10 years and it was exactly what I was looking for. It is lightweight and very easy to set up. I have done it by myself for years. It packs right away. The ultralight poles are strong and will not shatter like the old fiberglass poles. It pitches tautly and I have had it in high winds with no problem at all. I have had no problems with rain or wind. I have re-waterproofed it several times with no problem. The ventilation is good. It is just… Full review

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

Mondo 5 CD

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great tent! Sleeps 4 people very comfortably. We've had the tent for 24 years now and it's still in perfect condition. Super durable and reliable. It is easy to set up and take down. It has prevailed through many wind and rain storms with us sleeping (still dry) inside!  Full review

Light Year 1

rated 5 of 5 stars I have used this tent for many outings, including hiking 200 miles on the Colorado Trail. This tent has kept me dry in many storms, especially those on the CT. As a lightweight tent, I feel it has worn well, and has more life in it now that I have applied some seam seal, where it was peeling off. Easy setup; room for solo hiker; good vestibule for boots; is taut enough to keep me dry in all conditions, including severe weather in Colorado mountains; no condensation issues. I'm 6-2 and can sit up… Full review
