High Side 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Sierra Designs High Side tent is a good compromise between weight and space with a low profile, roomy if low interior, and intuitive setup. The 2-pound tent comes with poles and does not require trekking poles. The High Side 1 tent is a new tent from Sierra Designs, a company that is known for innovative designs at a reasonable price. This one-person, non-freestanding tent is lightweight, compact and intuitive to set up. The packed size is smaller than most due to the short length of the included… Full review

Moken 4

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Moken 4 is a mammoth and possibly misunderstood tent. It is advertised as a 4-person tent but really, it sleeps upwards of 8 persons. Setup The setup is pretty intuitive, nevertheless, the tent comes in a backpack style carrying case with setup instructions sewn onto the inside wall of the pack. You stake down the corners, add the mega hub cross pole in the center of the tent, add the two auxiliary poles, and then clip it all together. The central pole hub fulfills a big job since six poles… Full review

Clip Flashlight 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The 2018 Clip Flashlight attempts to improve a classic; I think they’ve succeeded. Received from Sierra Designs for testing and review. Setup: The Clip Flashlight is a 2-pole, non-free standing design. To pitch the tent: Stake down the four corners Insert the two poles into metal slide clips Clip the tent to the poles The fly is a bit more tricky. For the fly, you start by clipping it to the tent at the foot end of the tent. These clips are color coded to make sure you have the fly on the right… 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
