Cabela's Alaskan Guide

For an affordable fall and winter tent this one is very good value. The four-person version is great for two people and all their hunting gear. This tent is dry and fairly warm even in freezing conditions. This tent has seen all of its use in norther Minnesota October through December. It preforms very well in cool and cold weather along with rain and snow. I haven't had the tent up in high wind. I have never experienced any condensation on the inside, even running a propane heater which creates… Full review

Eureka! Summit

I purchased a Eureka Summit in 1993 when I moved to Alaska. It is fairly heavy, and after 25+years of use, the zippers are finally failing. I am hoping I can fix this by replacing the zipper sliders. Full review

Blacks Mountain Tent

A vintage very weather-proof tent for rough conditions. Hard-wearing tough orange ventile material. Bought my New Mountain Tent new on 24 April 1969 from Lawrence and Plater, Eastgate, Leeds for £28-15-00 (£28.75 in new money). Some years later after Blacks had stopped producing this tent I found the flysheet in a sale in the Blacks shop in Cambridge for a very low price. This is a very hard-wearing tent:  mine is still in excellent condition after 50 years. In April 2016 I camped at Fionnphort… Full review

The North Face Starfire Extreme

I agree with the other recent reviews. Well-made tent. Bought new from REI in 1995. Used it once or twice and then got completely out of camping and backpacking. Got back into camping in 2015 and dug this out of storage. I was afraid it would come apart at the seams when it was stretched tight, being so old. But no, I had a brand new 20-year-old tent! I've used it for a few years of weekend campouts. Recently seam-sealed it. It's cramped and hard for a pudgy, 50-year-old to get dressed in and get… Full review

The North Face Starfire Extreme

Gotta chime in with other recent reviews. I've had this tent since 1995 and it is simply bomber and still going strong. Twenty four years later, still a great tent! Fabric has not deteriorated. Several iterations of seam sealer have made the fly look a bit unkempt, but this 'uber Tadpole on steroids' has been taken on countless Arctic Alaska trips and has withstood wind, rain, sun, etc. It's dark inside—good for sleeping under the Midnight Sun.

The North Face VE 25

Can resist the worst the world can give... I have two of the first VE25 that came after the VE24 was fazed out. The other I just got is the full expedition model, black floor full yellow tent and fly. I have noticed that the two, as far as material, are not the same. Although the floor on #2 is thicker the tent material seems thin and lightweight. The older model had coating on the outer front door and rear door section. The newer model does not. Also the older fly the coating was on the outside… Full review

MEC Nunatak 2P

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

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

Slumberjack In-Season 2

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
