Marmot Limelight 3P

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this tent! Very solid construction, waterproof and spacious for 2 people pus gear. I often use it solo and I don't have to store any gear in the vestibules. Ventilation is great and very easy to set up! Excellent customer service at Marmot! Design, materials and construction are really top notch.  Super easy to set up, and if it's raining, you can set up the fly and the (included) footprint only, first, and then clip the tent body to the poles while you are all dry, under the fly. Nice thinking… Full review

Marmot Bise 2P

rated 4 of 5 stars Nice tent, compact. Used this tent camping several times.   Setting up in a downpour in the Cascade Mountain range was less than ideal as the mesh inner tent gets terribly soaked then the fly goes on top — Hillebergs are far superior in this respect. However once set up thank goodness for its excellent ventilation as the tent dries out (inside) relatively quick. Okay, now over snow.  Camping north of Pemberton BC during snowy conditions followed by -20 degrees C days. Snow load on tent caused… Full review

MSR Elixir 3

rated 5 of 5 stars Wonderful tent! Having been in Boy Scouts for many years and majoring in Wilderness Leadership in college, I have used many different styles and brands of tents — this one blows all of them away hands down. I also have worked in Outdoor Retail for the past 4 years and I have used it backpacking and front country car camping and have always been pleased. Great job, MSR! The headroom is great and setup is very easy. Great bang for your buck! Full review

Tarptent Contrail

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Actual weight is heavier than the stated weight. Tarptent lists the weight as 27.5 oz. The actual weight of the tent, four stakes, and the stuff sack is 32 oz. If you get the Tyvek ground cloth add another 5 oz. I'm not sure how much weight the seam sealing will add to the weight of the tent. Full review

Sierra Designs Zia 3

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great tent for car camping. Not the lightest tent. I bought my Zia 3 as my first backpacking tent. I have carried it mainly on weekend trips but last year bought a Clip Flashlight due to the lighter weight. I still use my Zia 3 when both of my boys go with me on trips or when I car camp.  It has withstood strong winds in the Ouachita Mountains as well as rain and thunderstorms. It has never leaked and been very roomy even with three people inside.  Full review

Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2

rated 4 of 5 stars Extremely lightweight and easy setup highlight this great little tent. I've been using a Marmot Limelight 2 for a few years now and absolutely love it. But I wanted to get something a little bit lighter in weight. After a lot of research, I purchased the Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2 and overall I'm quite pleased with my choice. I tend to backpack solo 99% of the time so weight was definitely a big consideration. The SL2 is about 1/2 the weight of the Limelight 2 and packs down smaller and very easily. Full review

Sierra Designs Gamma

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Simple, durable, lightweight tent. Used it many times for bike trips, kayaking, and hiking. I would almost consider this tent irreplaceable, just because I could never find something as usable for the same money. It's everything I could ask for in a 3-season tent...pitches quickly and easily, is stable, has kept me dry in heavy rain, packs light and is fairly compact, has a nice, big side entrance and decent vestibule for gear, has a couple mesh pockets inside and a little drink tray that I've used… Full review

Tarptent Contrail

rated 4 of 5 stars Great bang for the buck! The Contrail is a super lightweight, single wall, one-pole (trekking), 4-stake tent that weathered a variety of weather conditions. It has become my primary backpacking tent. The first time I set it up was a bit tricky and it took me about 10 minutes to get the proper tension and pitch. The second time I set it up I was able to cut the time in half. After a few days I was able to trim the set up time to a few minutes. Since it is not free-standing, the biggest hurdle is… Full review

Moss Tents Starlet (Three-Season)

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I was looking for a 2-person, 3-season backpacking tent and saw the Moss tents in REI. This was in 1984 and I recall there was a Star Gazer and its little brother the Starlet. I fell in love with its parabolic looks and quality of craftsmanship and the thought of looking up at night and seeing the stars. I purchased it and it was expensive for me, over $300, but as I assembled it, it had this Swiss watch quality, very well thought out and designed. I used it in the Sierra Nevada range and it was… Full review
