Recent Three-Season Tent Reviews

Sierra Designs 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

EMS Velocity 2 Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars A very spacious, lightweight tent. This review is for the current updated version, different from what is pictured. I am going on two years of ownership with this tent and ended up purchasing the 2P after being extremely impressed with the 1P version. Fast forward a little while and I have sold the 1P, and now use the EMS Velocity 2 for everything. Backpacking, motorcycle camping, and car camping, spring, summer, and fall, this tent is my go-to. Six interior pockets—not including the removable… Full review

Sierra Designs Light Year 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Light Year 1 was totally redesigned this year. I cannot compare from the old design, but I just purchased the new design and I really like it. It weighs 3 lbs 4 oz, so not the lightest tent on the market, but it is super easy to set up and so far I have no complaints. I did a YouTube video on my first impressions and a walk around. Check it out if you are thinking of buying this tent. Once I do a couple overnights with it, I will post a second impression video. Full review

Marmot Tungsten UL 2P

rated 4 of 5 stars Super light for a 2-person backpacking tent plus all the headroom... Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1

rated 4 of 5 stars Good tent at a great price!! Love my ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1-person tent. It's small, light, easy to set up, and keeps your gear dry. I used this late last fall (end of October) on a breezy weekend. It sprinkled off and on all Friday when I was setting up camp. Luckily the tent goes up quickly and I had a short break in the rain. I was warm and comfortable even though the wind blew all night long. Full review

Sierra Designs Divine Light 2 FL

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Divine Light 2 FL is a new addition to Sierra Designs' line of lightweight backpacking tents, combining characteristics of the Flashlight 2 and Tensegrity. Most notably, it utilizes spreader poles at the front of the tent to create a wider distance at the peak than at the bottom. This amounts to a noticeably different living experience inside the tent—a huge amount of space and headroom for sitting upright! The tent also sports side awnings and a large roll-back vestibule awning, which increase… Full review

Marmot Pulsar 2P

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Some great things about this tent and some pretty lousy things about this tent make it a split decision. Setup: The tent is easy enough to pitch. There are two poles with segmented parts. You insert the end of the pole into the grommet in each corner. I don't have the footprint. The fly has hook clips that fit over guy cords at the corners of the tent (see pic). The fly has (had) some underside velcro straps that are supposed to hold the fly to the poles in case of inclement weather. Unfortunately,… Full review

Wild River B-487UWF 3-Man

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a vintage product that is extremely lightweight for its size (8x10) and easy to set up. Good for backpacking. I've had this tent for many years (I think I got it in the late '70s) and for the last 20 years it has been rolled up in my garage. I recently took it out and it's like new other than a faded streak along one edge. I can't find any info on the web regarding Wild River products so hopefully someone will know something about them. I've backpacked in the mountains with it and it performed… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Haven 3

rated 2 of 5 stars Rain fly never fit correctly and the zipper seams eventually fell apart. Except for that I really liked the design of the tent We used the heck out of this tent for several years and many long trips. The rain fly never fit correctly. This was clearly a design and engineering flaw. After a few years the zipper adhesive and stitching on the rain fly came apart completely, despite my efforts at repair. I contacted Mountain Hardwear about this and eventually sent the tent back to them. They gave me… Full review
