Clip Flashlight 2

rated 4 of 5 stars A non-freestanding tent that has room for two, and a well sized vestibule, but not much livable interior space. Setup: The Clip Flashlight is a fairly easy tent to set up. It’s a two-arched pole design. First, stake down the base of the tent. Then place the pole ends into the grommets at the base of the tent and then use the clips to fasten the the tent to the poles. The signature “clips” that create the tent’s namesake are four twistable clips that lock the pole into the clip so there is… Full review

Light Year 1

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is bomb proof and lightweight! I think the only drawback is the smaller vestibule. That being said it is still all you will need in most cases. I would highly recommend this tent to anyone looking for a great 3.5-season tent that works well for backpacking, bike packing, motorcycle camping, and yes, even a backup for when there's not enough room in the RTT! First of all, let me say I have the previous model of this tent. Now, here's what I have to say: I have taken it… Full review

Backcountry Bivy

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great shape and design with functioning waterproof breathable (WPB) material, but just not enough of it. I bought the blue-yellow-black 2017 long sized model online, on sale for 35% off normal retail price. Overall, at that price point, I give this bivy a grade “good”, but NOT “very good”. Had I paid full retail price, I’d give it a lower grade due to top yellow patch not being breathable. The wet spot the yellow patch created on my bag was more noticeable, and took longer to dry than… Full review

Convert 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing all-around tent for three-season and four-season backpacking. I love this tent! I was in the market for a four-season tent, but I do a lot of backpacking and wanted something of a decent weight. Any four-season tent that is light, is single-walled and has poor ventilation (what I found in my research). The Convert allows me to have a four-season tent, light enough for packing, and still usable during the summer too. I've used this tent around the world in different rainstorms, snowstorms,… Full review

Meteor 2

rated 3 of 5 stars A two-person tent best suited for those that value livability a little more than shaving ounces. Sierra Designs touts it as good for car camping or backpacking and I agree; this really is that rare 'tweener design. This is a great couples tent for those milder weather trips. Though marketed as a three-season tent, I would avoid using it  during  the edges of shoulder seasons or winter for reasons listed below. The manufactures page can be found at this link. But here are the primary specs:… Full review
