Recent Three-Season Tent Reviews

Six Moon Designs Lunar Duo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars VERY roomy, lightweight two-person tent. I've had this tent for about a year now, and I'm very happy with it. I previously had a Mountain Hardwear Hammerhead 3, which was bombproof but huge and heavy. The Lunar Duo does the job at less than half the weight (3 pounds vs 8). I bought the "Explorer," the sil-nylon version. Setup: Pretty straightforward, but it takes a bit of practice, especially if you're doing it alone. I usually have to take a couple passes at the stake-out points and guy lines before… Full review

The North Face Pebble

rated 4 of 5 stars Durable, moderate weight, moderate packability. Setup: Because this tent stretches nice and tight and has very little flapping in the wind or pooling of rainwater, it also takes some practice to set it up efficiently. But overall it's not too bad. My main complaint with setup is that the model I bought in 2002 still used pole sleeves rather than clips and the poles had to be threaded through this in a crisscross manner and this is kind of annoying.  Stability: I have camped in some windy locations… Full review

L.L.Bean King Pine HD 4-Person Dome

rated 5 of 5 stars Top dollar car camping tent, once you try you won't go back. I write here about the old model King Pine Dome 4. If you can't have the nicest house where you live, this tent will play the part in any campground.  I have replaced the shatter-prone plastic stakes with steel stakes for the 8 required for the tent body. The footprint is color-coded matching the tent body for routing poles and tent body quickly. The poles are shock-corded fiberglass with hard mounted aluminum sleeves to join them as… Full review

Wild Country Mistral

rated 5 of 5 stars Top quality tent, two can live in for an extended time without feeling cramped. Very stable, described as three-season but might manage four. All in all a great tent doing all the things you require a tent to do, provide shelter, offer good cooking space, and allow you to sleep in peace with adequate space to store your gear. Bought this second hand when looking for a new tent in 2011, now having used it on a number of occasions in varying conditions feel I obtained a bargain. Perfect for a base… Full review

Eureka! Spitfire 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Gen 1 Spitfire — Has performed far beyond what the cost would have you believe. I purchased my gen-1 Spitfire 7 or 8 years ago. It has endured wind, soaking rain, thunderstorms and sleet without a problem. I've used it to canoe camp, backpack, motorcycle camp and car camp. My tent has the vent zipper, which is quite useful. Given how small the vestibules are, I'm not sure I'd want to sacrifice this feature for inside access to the other side as the newer versions do. It's easy enough to cram a… Full review

NEMO Losi 3P

rated 5 of 5 stars Seems to be absolutely bomb proof. Good size and easy setup, without having to go buy third party stakes and guy line. I just returned from a week in Big Bend National Park, camping in the Chisos Basin. This is monsoon season down there and we were hammered every afternoon with 30 minutes to an hour of WILD rain and wind. I'm happy to report that using only the basic tie out points this tent never leaked, not a drop. And while I could hear the fly snapping and bouncing at night, I never experienced… Full review

Kelty TraiLogic TN2

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight, high quality tent with lots of room. The footprint is impossible to find at the moment so either make your own out of Tyvek, or temporarily use a footprint from a similar 2-man tent if you have one (I used my Marmot Limelight footprint - not ideal but it worked). The Kelty TraiLogic TN2 tent is a Backpacker Magazine Editor's Choice winner with some good reason. The tent fly rolls up on the head end and is secured at the top of the tent, and can also be closed by 2 people without ever… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Airjet 2

rated 2 of 5 stars If the seams had not failed I would have rated this tent 5 stars. Loved this tent. I actually put it to some good backpacking use. I used it for ten years, but only a few times a year. Unfortunately its failure in seam tape design, as has been mentioned by other reviewers, was its downfall.The entire front wall, where you enter and exit came unglued on my last trip this month. This tent could have had another 5 years service, minimum, with the use I put into it. I suspect I could have squeezed 10… Full review

Kelty TraiLogic TN2

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy to use, not very heavy backpacking tent. It comes with the star gazing rain fly which is great! Setup is super easy with this tent. Kelty has color coordinated poles, tent, and rain fly so that putting it together is really simple. The color coordination is not obscene or obvious so no one will know that it is there unless they are putting the tent up.  The tent has the ability to keep the rain fly rolled up and out of the way so that you can view the stars at night. If the weather turns you… Full review
