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

Sierra Designs Polaris

I just ordered this tent and the only trace of its existence on the INTERNET could be found here. Looks like a good tent. Ordered it from eBay for $75, but wow I can not believe that there is no trace of this product on the whole internet except for this forum. What's this about?? Very weird. I haven't received it yet but will update once I receive it. But seriously why is it non-existent?? Full review

Jeep 3-Room Screen Combo Dome Tent

Spacious and one of the easiest tents I've ever set up. Been using mine for nearly 20 years. This was originally a Father's Day gift, nearly 20 years ago. Although it was not always needed when on scout camping trips, I would opt for it anyway, since it is one of the easiest one-person-setup tents I've ever set up. The front screened-in area was handy for playing games during rainstorms. Have used this tent more than once in high winds and it never faltered. The floor is very durable, but did eventually… Full review

The North Face Polaris

Old and still chugging. Have spent a lot of time in this tent, just took it out after 10 years at least for a weekend of winter camping in central New York. Was just as perfect and warm as ever!! If only it was half the weight. Pack weight is about 7 pounds. This tent has also endured some cool nights in the Rockies. Plenty of room for storage and people. Full review

Walrus Cascade Condo

I just picked one of these up in new condition. Can't wait to use it! This tent like all Walrus products are the best. Best made and best designed. The Cascade Condo is very spacious. Grab one if you can! I now have four Walrus tents. I'm looking for a Heatwave, or at minimum the rain fly for a Heatwave.  I have one, but I bought it incomplete and would love to have a full setup.

Jeep 3-Room Screen Combo Dome Tent

Durable enough to withstand 10 years in storage and still be in great shape! Spacious tent with lots of windows for ventilation, hanging 3-tier shelf, and low hanging pockets for storage! I have had this tent for close to 12 years and it has actually been in storage for almost 10. I was nervous to take it out and set it up, wondering what kind of shape it would be in. I was pleasantly surprised to find no holes and no musty smell. It went up as easy as I remember it. We put it up in probably 10… 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

Jeep 3-Room Screen Combo Dome Tent

This tent is great! Big enough to place two queen size airbeds in the back and still have room for the tables and chairs in the screen room. Another camper referred to our tent as the Taj Mahal of tents. You could sleep eight if you really need to. We have used this into the fall in NE and were still pretty warm. We love the screen porch feature! Fairly easy to set up and take down, in fact, the first time I set it up by myself. We used this in Ohio during a violent thunderstorm and staked out,… 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
