Recent Three-Season Tent Reviews

Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2

rated 4 of 5 stars Very lightweight and great for solo or two-person backpacking. Overall, I really like this tent so far. It is light and packs up quite small and is also quite easy to set up. The first time I set it up was in light rain, and it was quick enough to set up that the inside did not get wet at all. The poles are pretty easy to set up, though I'm a little concerned that the 3-way junction might be a site for future weakness, but it's a little to early to say for sure.  So far I have only used the tent… Full review

Black Diamond HiLight

rated 5 of 5 stars I was in a rainstorm from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. (7 hrs). I expected to be wet and my gear soaked. On the contrary, I stayed dry during a 7-hr downpour of rain. I did not want to get out of the tent, because temperatures were in the mid-30's. I was afraid if I got soaked, hypothermia might set in. I stayed warm and dry during this downpour. Further up the trail I ran into snow. I'm glad I had the Black Diamond Hi-light tent to keep me dry and warm! I was out doing a solo backpacking trip when I got caught… Full review

Coleman 8-Person Instant Tent

rated 2 of 5 stars I will never buy a Coleman product again. They use to be the number one name in outdoor stuff. Now nothing lasts. Used the tent twice before two corner joints broke. Bought two air beds, both lost air in a matter of a few hours.  Full review

L.L.Bean Mountain Light XT 3-Person Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars We actually have a prior year's model (rust and light grey), which supposedly has been improved for this year's green model. Hard to imagine how they could improve it, but apparently it is a slightly stronger fabric, and is actually $50 less expensive! The design is the same, and so our review would be useful for this, or prior year's model. This free-standing tent is easy to assemble, goes up quickly, and also can be taken down with ease. In our family, it is usually put up by one person, without… Full review

The North Face Tadpole 2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This tent is based on the ever popular Tadpole. The design is a definite improvement over the regular Tadpole mostly in the weight dept. It is also designated as a "featherlight" weighing in at a respectable 3 lb. 15 oz. Also the font vestibule offered an extra almost 9 sq. ft. of gear space. This tent in my opinion is a great overall 2-person tent. Great for the overnight trek/camp, or even any multi-day camp experience. Love it. It packs down small and light, and I still have plenty of room for… Full review

Sierra Designs Electron RC 2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars It's a very well designed tent, but I find that sometimes the quality of the materials aren't too great. I had to patch the window with duct tape, and one of the door zippers wouldn't close. The tent is very easy to set up, and it's very easy to figure out in darkness and pouring rain because you can pitch the rainfly first, then attach the body. I find that the tent is fairly stable, and I saw very little condensation inside the tent. Full review

MSR Hubba

rated 4 of 5 stars This tent is durable and performs great in wet conditions. The vestibules are kind of small, but very easy to open and close. I have had this tent for five years now and I love it. It’s lightweight. Easy to set up (I agree with the previous post, can be done drunk in the dark). It hasn't shown any signs of wear yet. It keeps rain out well. The zippers perform well. Even the shock cord for the poles is as good as the first day out of the box.  The rain fly can be pitched first. Never thought that… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 1.0

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great little one-person tent. I have had this tent for a while and have only used it a couple handfuls of times when flying solo. This is my backup tent or the tent that gets loaned out when someone doesn't have a need to fit two. I picked it up for really cheap on a discount site because I couldn't stand not buying it. I am 5'8" medium frame and it can fit me, my sleeping bag/pad, and a 60 liter pack with little room to spare. It's a cozy tent by all standards. It sets up in 2 minutes… Full review

The North Face Merlin 33

rated 5 of 5 stars Still bombproof in its 9th backcountry season. Spacious, light, and never a worry about what the weather is doing. I purchased the tent in 2006 and I take it out for 12-20 nights per season, with the bulk of those being backcountry days in the Rockies. It packs well (I usually divide tent / fly / poles and leave the stuff sacks), and sets up fast and easy. The poles stick a bit if the sleeves are wet, so rainy take-downs need a bit of planning. To make it more weather-proof I added seam sealer… Full review
