The North Face VE 24

These older NF VE tents are brutal beasts. The newer models, as I have reconditioned two, are not made with the same quality. Just picked up a smelly VE24 today. No poles, but I have plenty of parts poles to make a set. Needs some patching to the pole sleeves, some floor sealer, and she's ready for another 10 years. I have the first of the original VE25's and it's my go-to tent 85 percent of the time when I motorcycle or winter camp. Can't stand up in it, but plenty of headroom for sitting in a… Full review

Hilleberg Nallo 3

The Nallo 3 is a well suitable tent for weight-conscious trips in severe conditions, offering comfort, weather resistance, and durability in a reasonably lightweight package. It's probably the best “compact” tent for my personal tasks. But the best tent isn’t good enough—I cannot get to become friends with its entrance. Also the living space is rather limited for three occupants. Background Me, my wife and son (he’s almost 5 at the moment of me writing this) enjoy year-round backcountry… Full review

Hilleberg Keron 3 GT

It’s a bit big and may not fit into the campsite that you want, which is a con, but once you fit it in the big size becomes a pro. The Keron 3GT is an amazing all-around tent that when put into its environment performs amazing. When it rains the big vestibule is a big plus and if you have way too much gear you can enter and exit from the smaller  vestibule. In bad weather you can put your stuff in the smaller vestibule and hang out with your friends in the bigger one. Another cool feature is… Full review

Hilleberg Jannu

If you want the absolute best and don’t mind spending the money. Best quality, best of everything, this is the tent for you. I made a review of the Hilleberg three-person Saivo tent a while back. Because I have already done all the research, when I was looking for a second tent I went right to Hilleberg without hesitation. I chose the Jannu, and as in the past I made the right choice. To recap: I did a lot of research into the choice of tents, as a matter of fact a couple of months or more. At… Full review

Macpac Minaret

Bomb-proof, four-season tent that is easy to pitch and take down. A true multi-pitch design. Just enough room for two. I bought the original version of the Minaret in 1994 and retired it in April 2019 after its final trip to Southern Tasmania. During that time it has kept me dry and warm (often too warm) in the worst weather and never did I feel worried it would not cope, even in high winds and driving rain. A true multi-pitch design where you can pitch just the fly, just the inner, both the fly… Full review

Cabela's Alaskan Guide 6-Man

This tent is great. Very little to no condensation. We have used this tent for three years now. We have used it down to -12°C or 10°F , only had minor bit of frost along the lower edge of one inside edge, about 5" up. at -12°C and we had used a Buddy Heater giving of some propane moisture. Ran it sparingly and have a carbon monoxide detector with us. We have used it down to -12°C or 10°F , only had minor bit of frost along the lower edge of one inside edge, about 5" up. Being a four-season… Full review

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
