REI Arete ASL 2 Tent

It was very good, while it lasted. I really liked this tent (I had the first of three updated versions, I think). It was the 'Goldilocks' sweet spot for me of a four-season-capable tent with more interior room than most two-person mountaineering tents, and better ventilation than most as well as lighter weight. Was easy to set up, had good number of interior pockets, and decent vestibule space. The tradeoff was only one door, and fly not going completely to the ground, so would let wind and spindrift… Full review

Lowland Trailrunner 2

Lovely tent—lightweight, spacious, and good quality. I've owned this tent for over 15 years. I've looked around for a replacement (for no reason other than because "New! Shiny"), but finding another tent that is as light (2.4kg) and as well-designed  as this one is not easy (okay, there are a couple of Hillebergs, but look at the £££). The design means you get two useable vestibules (handy when the wind/rain direction shifts; or use the back vestibule for storage). Narrow at the foot end (where… Full review

Tarptent Scarp 2

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

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

Tarptent StratoSpire 1

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

Tarptent Moment DW

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

SlingFin CrossBow 2 StormPak

The StormPak is the bare bones configuration of the CrossBow 2 series tent that minimizes weight, yet still has the strength to stand up to virtually any weather! This single-wall mesh free setup is waterproof, comfortable for two people and ALL OF THEIR GEAR, and is suitable for any kind of three-season use. Although SlingFin may be a relatively new name to the tent world, the crew on board has more collective experience than most well established companies. It is clear that they have paid very… Full review

REI Arete ASL 2 Tent

Nice tent for the weight, but a little on the thin side. The fabric is just OK and not as durable as high end tents...however the weight is saved. Overall worth the money. Lightweight, pretty durable, good quality, and REI one-year warranty. The cheap stakes (not enough) and guy ropes are a joke. I replaced them immediately. Using the vestibule entrance with two people is a pain because it's small. Nice that it has plenty of room inside for two and the packed size and weight are worth the money. Full review

Sierra Designs Vapor Light 2

Very lightweight and reasonably priced. Good protection from wind, rain, and bugs. A bit cramped for two people though. I bought this tent for a couple reasons. It is advertised as a two-person tent, and it will actually fit two people. But you better be pretty good friends, conditions would be crowded. This is not really unexpected when you consider how the tent met my other expectation. It is very lightweight. My tent actually weighs less than the published specs and by a good bit. Tent, fly,… Full review
