rated 4 of 5 stars Had my Lookout since 1996. Lots of use for backcountry paddling and backpacking. The Lookout has served me well in the 22 seasons I have owned it. A slightly crooked pole hasn't stopped this tent from performing. I gave it a bath a couple seasons ago and it was DIRTY!! but still holding strong from weather of all kinds. I have actually used this as a 4-season tent. From deep snow and cold to hot and humid. You don't want to stay in too long in the sun as it heats up quite quickly with the fly on. Full review

Backcountry Bed 800 3-Season

rated 5 of 5 stars I'm a bigger guy, and never slept well in a sleeping bag...until I got the Backcountry Bed. I have two sons in the Boy Scouts and have spent my share of evenings in a tent/hammock. I'm a bigger guy, approx 5'10" and 240 lbs. I find most mummy bags constricting and have struggled to get a good night's sleep. That is, until I recently tried the Backcountry Bed by Sierra Designs. We were heading out on a 4-day, 42-mile hike and I was determined to find a quality bag that's comfortable...and boom, I… Full review

Frontcountry Bed 600 SYN 2-Season

rated 5 of 5 stars My go-to for any trip where weight isn't the largest concern. I've been a mummy bag user for decades but it was time for a change. I use this mostly on weekend trips, car camping, and disaster response. I've spent about 100 nights in this bag and there is virtually no wear at all. Most of these nights are on a Red Cross cot while deployed with Team Rubicon. Sleeping temp and comfort is extremely subjective, but I have found this comfortable without a base layer to about 40-45°. For reference I… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bought new very long ago. Treasured tent, not used for many years. Recently used it again, found coating on flysheet has gone gummy. Inner tent OK, poles like new. Perhaps person above with bad poles would like to sell me theirs or buy mine. Excellent design. Should be updated with polyester flysheet. Full review

Tensegrity 2 Elite

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an ultralight and innovative tent with just a few drawbacks. I've always used 3-4 season double wall tents while camping and backpacking or I'll throw a bivvy bag in my pack for light weight.   I own Sierra Designs down bags and love them. I replaced a 20-year-old North Face tent with a Convert 3 last year and was highly impressed.  This last year I started getting knee pain and decided it's time to go lightweight.  Armed with an REI 20% off coupon, a clearance sale, and my annual dividends… Full review
