Northwest Territory First Up 9.5 X 11 dome tent

rated 3 of 5 stars The tent is nice but the rain cover flies off with a little wind. I tried to get it back but it attached to a tree about 30' up. Anyone know how to get a new rain cover.... Tent goes up nice and easy but the rain cover doesn't stay in place very good. It blew off and is now 30' up a tree. I need to find a new one anyone know how????  Full review

The North Face Stormbreak 1

rated 4 of 5 stars Two pole 'X' design is stable in wind, reasonable light weight, rain-fly vestibule big enough for outside storage. I tried the MSR one person tent, the NF Stormbreak 1 is better. Easy to set up, has color coded lanyards. Free standing.  Cross pole design very stable in wind. Added longer tent stakes.  Waterproof spray sealed the rain fly.  Use a piece of Tyvek house wrap as a ground tarp...very light weight and keeps water out (tyvek label faces the ground).  I have had snow drifts pile up outside,… Full review

Gossamer Gear The One

rated 5 of 5 stars The One tent from Gossamer Gear met all of my expectations for a solo tent. I found it to be easy to set up, comfortable to be in, and lightweight. It has all the headroom and storage space I need, and I liked the open views and ventilation from the front. Gossamer Gear’s The One tent is a one-person tent that hits all of my requirements in one small package. I’m picky about one-person tents, more so than with a two-person tent. Most two-person tents I’ve tested inherently feel bigger and… Full review

Eureka! Wind River 2

rated 4 of 5 stars I inherited this tent from my brother, who I remember loved it. Can anyone provide what size poles are required for the tent?  I have the tent and fly, which are both in great shape, but no poles! Thanks for any help. David Full review

REI Kingdom 8 Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars This tent has been very reliable, but watch out for the wind. I have been using this tent for about three years now. My kids love it because there is so much room in it. I usually take it out one-on-one with each of my kids so we have room to spare. We are able to set it up with just two people unless it is windy. My biggest problem with the tent is that it is like a giant sail in the wind. You need to tie it down thoroughly. Even with it tied down I now have poles that are bent. Nothing has broken… Full review

YAMA Mountain Gear Swiftline 2P

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great shelter with plenty of space. Unique pitching options. For the size and weight of this shelter you really can't beat it. A palace for one and will accommodate two people as well. I finally found my balance. I've been lighting up my pack weight for the past few years now. Sometimes this meant adding and removing gear to get where I wanted to be in terms of my hiking style and needs. Gen of Yama Mountian Gear has created this balance in the Swiftline 2p Shelter. The space, function, and ease… Full review

Ozark Trail 12' x 10' Family Dome Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars CAN ANYONE PLEASE TELL ME THE POLE LENGTHS!?! We have had this tent as long as I can remember and I'm 31 now! I just took it out to take my son camping and can't find the poles! I'm heartbroken and don't have the money to get another one this size! If you can PLEASE e-mail me alisonratliff1@gmail.com the pole sizes I would appreciate it SO MUCH! Thank you! Full review

VauDe Taurus UL 2P

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Made with typical German quality, a sturdy two-person tent with reasonable space for living in comfort. Stood up to poor weather and great for the British climate as it pitches flysheet first. The Vaude Taurus II UL is great for two people and luxurious for one. It is smaller and lighter than the Marmot Limelight I have used for several years. Though I loved that tent, it was getting too heavy and bulky for my creaking back. We chose the Vaude Taurus because one person does not need to climb over… Full review

REI Kingdom 8 Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars My family has been enjoying this tent for the last few years. It is super easy to set up and it goes up quickly. My family and I love this tent, we have used it for the last three years and couldn't be happier. We had been torn between this tent and another eight-person tent and aside from the cheaper price we were sold on the double strap making it able to be worn like a backpack when carrying it. We've used it in the rain and have stayed bone dry. With the included rain fly it goes on easy, keeps… Full review
