MEC Nunatak 2P

rated 5 of 5 stars Hard core tent, not light but can be split up for backpacking trips amongst the group. Not recommended for solo trips. Strong, durable, and great for two people with gear. Cross drafts are easy with the vestibule slightly open. I have used this at 6,000 feet (-25°C) for a week of skiing, hunting trips in the mountains, and also several three-week trips of fly-in canoeing near the Arctic Circle. Currently my unit is over 20 years old and still being used with my family now and performs "as new." Full review

Hilleberg Akto

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A good tent for long-distance walking trips. I find the Akto easy to pitch, even in high winds. Very stable and strong. I take the extra pole in snow, but I've never needed it as the tent can take a load on top without trouble. Very easy to adjust. A wee bit clammy, but I leave the end vents open winter and summer and it's not so bad. I love the big porch and I invested in the footprint, which pitches with the tent, and doesn't add too much more weight for the value of getting gear off the wet ground. Full review

Naturehike Cloud UP 2

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is very cheap priced, but don't let that fool you in quality. Naturehike makes the best cheap 1-2 man tents for backpacking. They are very light, durable. I have used the Naturehike Cloud Up 2 for every hiking trip I have ever done. The tent has YKK zippers and does not leak even in a heavy downpour. It comes with very strong aluminium stakes and all the guy lines are reflective so you can see them easily in the dark. It is easily taken down while staying dry. The tent I have is getting… Full review

Slumberjack In-Season 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Overall, this is a very nice tent if you can get it below $200. It is a true two-person tent that can fit two adult men and their gear without any problems. I have had this tent for a little over a year and have used it four times during the winter and cold camping in the Grand Canyon and North Texas. Living in Southeast Texas, I wouldn't even think about using this during the summer months.  Setup isn't too difficult. The poles are color-coded to make it easier. The three vestibule fly requires… Full review

Moss Tents Stardome III

rated 5 of 5 stars They don’t make tents like this any more. I’m still using this tent nearly thirty years after I purchased it. A few small repairs along the way and accommodations for some loss of waterproofing in the floor, but this is the best tent I have ever owned or slept in. These days, it would be considered heavy for backpacking, but I love it. Full review

Moss Tents Stardome II

rated 5 of 5 stars As others here have said, there is great value in owning a Moss Stardome II despite its weight. You stay dry no matter what comes your way. With its narrow profile, high winds skim off its surfaces like water from a duck’s back. For my one-man tent camping outings, this is the ideal-sized tent. It allows me to pull in my backpack and still allows enough room for me to sleep comfortably. After “loaning” it to a friend (for several years!), I also had its floor replaced and other work done by… Full review

Moss Tents Olympic

rated 5 of 5 stars This Camden, Maine, original tent is roomy for two people even with a pack harbored inside overnight. This tent is the best tent I’ve ever owned. Full review

Walrus Arc 3

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a heavier nylon four-season tent with minimal ventilation for summer time. Full review

The North Face VE 24

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great tent that easy fits two people, and fits three when using the vestibule. But I need to find replacement poles for it. They got all bent up and North Face does not make them anymore. Is there a company out there that makes custom tent poles? Full review
