Recent 3-4 Season Convertible Tent Reviews

Tarptent Scarp 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Very fast to set up and take down. Ticks these boxes: High quality, lightweight, made in the US, reasonably priced. My wife and I recently completed a short canoe camping trip in Algonquin Park. We broke camp daily. The tent is quick to set up and offers the convenience of being able to set up the fly first—handy if it's raining. Speaking of which, we experienced one day where it rained from 10 AM until 4 AM the next day—nonstop. No leaks—dry and comfortable. We followed Tarptent's seam-sealing… Full review

Vango Blade Pro 200

rated 3 of 5 stars Interesting design with pros and cons, could have been worked out better. Motivation I bought this as a one-man tent, to have enough space for my pack inside. Buying the Blade 100 would relatively save little weight and not be wide enough. I wanted to have more headroom than in the bivouac tent I already had, to be able to sit up inside. I deliberately wanted a really doubly walled tent instead of a mostly mesh inner tent, to be able to use it in winter. Probably that would also be warmer than my… Full review

Walrus Cascade Condo

rated 4 of 5 stars Walrus Cascade Condo Limited Edition Family Tent 4 + Person. (circa 1999) Hello, The Cascade Condo was made by WALRUS, a high respected tent maker, like MOSS. Both are no longer in business, but were acquired by MSR for their very highly rated tent designs. They are only available as pre-owned and with no replacement parts, although I assume somewhere there is a fabricator or artisan or repair tentmaker, or skilled DIY types, that could fabricate or repair existing tent components to some degree.

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. 6/18/18: Scroll to the bottom… Full review

Sierra Designs Lookout

rated 4 of 5 stars Perfect for motorcycle, snowmobile, sled, and canoe camping. Setup is easy—two straight poles, grommet front and back and do the same with the other two arched poles on each side of the body, cross them at the back and use the clip with the little bungee cord to lock them together at the X. Then start clipping on the clips. Start at the middle of each pole and work your way around. Arch pole, put it in one grommet on one side hold onto the pole, bring it around to the other grommet on the other… Full review

Sierra Designs Lookout

rated 4.5 of 5 stars All in all, this is a true workhorse of a tent. It's suitable for all weather conditions, it's spacious, durable, and lightweight. A few personal preferences that they could have done differently, but overall I give it a 9/10...because nobody's perfect. Haha! Setup 9/10: Without instructions, it took a couple tries to figure out the poles the first time. Otherwise, setup was a breeze. The poles attach to the tent exclusively with grommets and clips, so there aren't any annoying sleeves to deal with. Full review

Sierra Designs Lookout

rated 4 of 5 stars Had my Lookout since 1996. Lots of use for backcountry paddling and backpacking. The Lookout has served me well in the 22 seasons I have owned it. A slightly crooked pole hasn't stopped this tent from performing. I gave it a bath a couple seasons ago and it was DIRTY!! but still holding strong from weather of all kinds. I have actually used this as a 4-season tent. From deep snow and cold to hot and humid. You don't want to stay in too long in the sun as it heats up quite quickly with the fly on. Full review

Tarptent Moment DW

rated 5 of 5 stars A lightweight one-person tent that is easy to set up, takes up minimal space, and gives an easy drumtight pitch. Setup:  This tent is incredibly easy to set up. Stake one end, insert the main hoop pole, stake the other end, and tighten the guylines. I can set this up alone in less than two minutes after I find a spot. The design takes up relatively little space, and I was able to slip it into spots on the Appalachian Trail that might not have accommodated some other tents. Stability:  This design… Full review

Marmot Swallow 2P

rated 5 of 5 stars I have had this tent since 2002. I have to say it has lasted better than any tent I know of. I have about 100 days in this tent and it has backpacked and car camped everywhere in the PNW. I think the tents you can get now are better with material and weight, but I returned a Mountain Hardwear tent I got as a replacement because it wasn't good enough. Pitch it quick in a puddle of mud and pick it up in two days without getting wet. I am serious. I camped at the Oregon coast numerous times and stayed… Full review
