Recent Three-Season Tent Reviews

Kelty Crestone 1

rated 5 of 5 stars Kelty Crestone 1. I bought my Crestone 1 back in 2009. Used it while hiking the AT in 2010. It stood up to high winds and heavy rain through my whole hike. Plenty of room for me 5' 8" and I have also had my Shi Tzu dog in it with me on a few hikes. Plenty of space in vestibule for my boots and bag. And had no problems sitting up in tent. I would suggest to anyone that is over 5' 10" to possibly look into a different tent, for it will probably not be as perfect for you as it has been to me. Full review

MSR Hubba

rated 5 of 5 stars My tent lasted for over 10,000 backpacking miles. It experienced snow, ice, driving rain, and hot desert sun. The size I think was perfect. I could even put my backpack at my feet. Super easy to set up and take down. If wet it will dry off quickly in the sun and the breeze. Folded up nicely. I would highly recommend this for any serious lightweight backpacker. I like this over a lightweight trap because I feel more comfortable being able to seal the tent at night and not worry about invading insects… Full review

SlingFin CrossBow 2 Mesh

rated 4 of 5 stars The CrossBow 2 Mesh is the workhorse configuration of the SlingFin CrossBow 2 family. This tent will stand up to virtually any weather and conditions during three-season use, easily housing two people and ALL OF THEIR GEAR. This shelter is best suited for two travelers who simply cannot compromise quality and comfort. A mild October evening near the Ed Garvey shelter area; Appalachian Trail, Maryland Although SlingFin may be a relatively new name to the tent world, the crew on board has more collective… Full review

Ozark Trail 9' x 8' Dome Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars Used it over 25 times, still perfect. Everyone here is complaining about the poles, but I've had this tent for years and have never had an issue with them. Slept comfortably in 30 degree wet conditions and on the beach in over 105 degrees, also in rainy and super windy conditions and haven't had an issue. No leaks or holes and plan on using it more. I'm going to be careful with the poles now after reading all these, but I've never even babied them... Overall great tent. Full review

MSR Holler

rated 4 of 5 stars Fantastic tent for a 4-season camper not climbing to the peak of a snowy mountain. After much searching for the right combination in a 3P tent that can do almost everything a backpacking tent could be, the search can be declared to be over. The MSR Holler is a fantastic combination of high quality, lightweight materials, a very sturdy design for a 3-season (better than the Nemo Losi Storm we had prior to this that was supposed to be a 4-season), a simple setup, and a pretty well thought out organization/design. Full review

Eureka! Tetragon 5

rated 1.5 of 5 stars OK for the backyard, but would not depend on it in the "backcountry." It stays dry in the rain as long as you put a tarp under it. The built-in floor will not keep things dry if it rains all day. My tent poles broke with less than 10 careful uses. Eureka customer service did not help... and said I probably damaged them. I take my fly off, carefully breakdown my poles and wrap them in my fly, so they end up in the center of the bag padded by the fly and tent. I've been tenting for 15 years and this… Full review

The North Face Rock 32

rated 2 of 5 stars Inadequately robust. Poor quality materials. Inadequate protection against the elements. This is the third North Face tent I have owned. I paid $170 Canadian. I have also owned tents manufactured by Sierra Designs and the Mountain Equipment Co-op since 1989. On average I repair and maintain my tents to extend their lifespan to about 15 years before they are considered non-serviceable. Compared to previous manufacturing standards, design, and materials this North Face Rock 32 should not be considered a… Full review

REI Dash 2 Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars I found this to be a great very light, low cost tent that is great for the solo hike and can fit two in a pinch. I purchased this tent on closeout from REI to use on my solo section hiking of the JMT. I only recall paying about $140 for the tent, which I thought was great given it is under 3 lbs. The final weight of the tent was only 44 ounces or about 2.76 lbs. My final weight only included the tent, the fly, 6 stakes, poles, the pole stuff sack and a Tyvex ground sheet that I had made. I didn't… Full review

REI Half Dome 2 Plus

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I do not know how they can make a tent like this for the price. If it ain't broke don't fix it! I wanted the Half Dome for awhile and when the Half Dome 2 Plus was about 150$ I had to get it. I bought the footprint which makes things like setting up so much easier and is a great tarp to lie on or sleep under.  I did not use the fly at first and was amazed how easy the setup was and how it pushed the two door walls out. I was used to walls sloping inward to drip rain in the door, but if used with… Full review
