Sirius 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Three-season tent with plenty of room for two people, or one and all gear. Great for backpackers, car campers, or canoe campers. Best for those looking for a good product at a reasonable price. This is the easiest tent I've ever pitched. The poles all snap together easily, and are all connected in advance so there is no guesswork. The tent snaps easily to the poles, and the fly buckles on. The tent can easily be pitched in under two minutes. The tent has been stable and comfortable both in good… Full review

Elite Rain Chaps

rated 4 of 5 stars These chaps are a lightweight alternative to regular rain pants. They shed water and have much more ventilation than rain pants. I had the opportunity to test the Sierra Designs Elite Rain Chaps this summer, first on a drizzly day hike in California and then for four solid days of rain on the Tour of Mont Blanc. The chaps are an interesting alternative to rain pants in that they are two separate legs that attach to pants or shorts using a plastic hook on a single side strap (one strap per leg). Full review

Vapor Light 2 XL

rated 5 of 5 stars Great product, kept me dry for five plus years before it started leaking a bit from the fly. Great product. Kept me dry for five plus years before it inevitably started leaking a bit from the fly. (will be resealing the seams prior to my next trip).

Wouldn't quite call it light enough for a backpacking tent unless you're splitting weight. I have used it for three season camping… Full review

Lightning 2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A sturdy, wind and rain-proof tent; however, setting it up takes a bit of practice til you become proficient at it. I have used this tent on numerous river trips. A very strong tent that has kept me dry in torrential rains. The tent is one-piece (no fly) which is a great convenience when setting up in a hurry. The pole setup is a bit complex. I would not recommend a first-time setup in the dark (or windy or rainy conditions).   The biggest drawback to me is the front pole extension that partially… Full review

Stash 1

rated 3 of 5 stars Small and lightweight. Perfect for those weight-conscious hikers. This tent is very lightweight and compact. It has a small footprint which allows you to quickly set up in the smallest of spaces. You will have to dress / undress outside the tent then slide in the side door ... unless you are a contortionist that is. The tent is great, until it rains. Then the fly will sag in the middle and contact the tent itself. You will then have water droplets falling onto your sleeping bag. The vestibule will… Full review
