VauDe Hogan Ultralight

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This tent will handle just about anything Mother Nature can throw at you. I have had this tent for about 8 years. It has gone through pretty much every weather event with great results. I won't hesitate to purchase another now that it is almost time to replace this one. It has had extensive beatings from the New Zealand Southern Alps and it has kept myself and my gear dry many times. I have even had three adults in it in a storm when the other guys' gear couldn't take the beating. Last trip was… Full review

Tarptent StratoSpire 1

rated 5 of 5 stars The Stratospire 1 is lightweight, able to withstand severe weather, roomy, and well-constructed. An ingenious design brings together many of the benefits of multiple shelters including a tarp and tent (a well-named product). It needs seam sealing and takes practice to get the pitch right, but gets easy. For a three-season solo plus shelter, extending into the fourth season with a solid inner, it is tough to find a better or more versatile option in the same weight class. Testing Conditions I spent… Full review

LightHeart Gear Solo

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Solid lightweight option, price effective. Tent holds great promise, but ultimately falls short of potential. Withstood PCT through hike with minimal signs of wear. When I first bought this tent I thought it would be the ultimate shelter with the weight savings of a single-walled tent, and the strength of a double-walled tent. While the tent is full of good ideas, it ultimately falls short of what could be a phenomenal product. I would recommend this product for anyone who is exploring backpacking… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Meramac 6

rated 5 of 5 stars Best bang for the buck. Great car camping design. I've owned my ALPS Meramac 6 about 13 years. I'd guess I've used it on at least 15 camping trips, several days each trip. I have used the tent May through September in the Midwest US. I even took it to Bonnaroo in sweltering Tennessee heat. This tent has never let me down. I think the design and materials are excellent. Quality: This is not a low quality family tent you might find at Target. This is more of a high quality tent you'd find at REI. Full review

Zpacks Duplex Tent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Overall it is a great tent—roomy, light, and comfortable both in the desert and above 12,000 feet. Sturdy when pitched well and stands up to storms (though you will notice tiny micro-holes appearing after moderate use). I used this tent for six months (April-September) while hiking the PCT, and I'd make the same tent choice again.  Duplex setup in sand with rocks:   Is it worth the money?! Yes—IF you plan on getting A LOT of use out of it, or if lowering your base weight is very important… Full review

Sierra Designs Meteor 2

rated 3 of 5 stars A two-person tent best suited for those that value livability a little more than shaving ounces. Sierra Designs touts it as good for car camping or backpacking and I agree; this really is that rare 'tweener design. This is a great couples tent for those milder weather trips. Though marketed as a three-season tent, I would avoid using it  during  the edges of shoulder seasons or winter for reasons listed below. The manufactures page can be found at this link. But here are the primary specs:… Full review

Eureka! Zeus 2EXO

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A very good shelter I have traveled the PCT from end to end three times using a Zeus 1. I love this tent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is easy to put up under any conditions and is light. I have spent time in this tent through really bad rain and wind storms. I wish I could find a new one, but because of the butthead management of Eureka they no longer make them.

Black Diamond HiLight

rated 4 of 5 stars Bought this tent for solo winter camping and for emergency shelter. It weighs 2.8 lbs and is described as a 1-2 person. In the den it was a challenge, but in the wind it is downright frustrating. The tent is like a parachute because you have to go inside to install the poles. I'll be spending some time practicing setting up the tent. This tent is a one-person tent! I have a 6-foot Western Mountaineering sleeping bag rated for -25 degrees. It took 3/4 of the tent and it would almost touch the tent… Full review

The North Face Peregrine

rated 5 of 5 stars 18 years old, and I still love this tent!! Weathered severe thunderstorms/tornados in Wisconsin in August, 1999, and then later on trips in Kansas and Missouri. Despite severe winds and torrential downpour, we always stayed dry and didn't get blown away. Couldn't hear several kids singing at the top of their voices in another tent three feet away during part of the storm in Oshkosh... But here it is 18 years later and it is still holding up very well. I've had to re-apply the weather proofing a… Full review
