GoLite Hex 3 Shelter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I use this on short duration backpacking trips and it is great fro 2 people or 1 person and a bike/dog. Combine with the matching nest and it is excellent in buggy climes. I use it mostly without the nest.. I love this tee-pee ( single pole ) design over the dome type tents I've had this tent for a number of years and among the dozen tents I own it is still my favorite.  Best combination of space and lightweight .. In buggy areas the nest ( bug net and floor) are a good idea ..  I mostly use it… Full review

Six Moon Designs Gatewood Cape

rated 3 of 5 stars Why I no longer use this as rain gear: In wind it blows all over the place unless tied at the waist. Hand and arms are exposed. Maybe not an issue for some, but if you are using hiking poles, your arms will be constantly exposed and rain will most like seep further up into your clothing. Want to get something out of your pack while it is still raining? It is possible, but not convenient to get your pack on and off without getting wet. Next, suppose it is still pouring rain when you want to put up… Full review

Eureka! Timberline SQ Outfitter 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Very weather resistant, easy to setup, and durable. Best for canoe country. Highly recommended. Assembly is very easy and fast even with terrible light conditions. Very easy to take down and stuff back into bag. Bag about 8 inches extra room on top with tent in bottom for some extra storage. Good place for flashlights and toiletries. Window screens are well made and keep out even the smallest of insects. Tie downs on rain fly are well built and seem to handle wind well. Properly staked, the fly… Full review

Nature’s Hangout DoubleHang Camping Hammock

rated 5 of 5 stars The Nature’s Hangout XL Double Hammock is amazing. For a great price, you get a quality product that is super easy to set up. It makes camping or just hanging out a whole easier and so much more fun! The Nature’s Hangout XL Double Hammock is amazing. It’s very lightweight, yet surprisingly extremely durable. It’s great to take to hang in a park or take with you camping or backpacking. I love this hammock because you don’t need to tie any knots. You just need to take out the tree straps… Full review

Six Moon Designs Gatewood Cape

rated 4 of 5 stars Shelter AND rainwear in one svelte package! For those looking to shed serious weight, it's tough to beat a beat a shelter AND rainwear that weighs in at 13 ounces for both! The new Gatewood Capes are made from a slightly lighter fabric and now weigh in at a very svelte 10 ounces (15% lighter than the previous version). My entire setup consists of the Gatewood Cape, six lightweight stakes, guy lines and 5 mini biners for a total weight of 13 ounces.  The biners are used to facilitate a quick change… Full review

Jeep 3-Room Screen Combo Dome Tent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 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

Big Agnes Bitter Springs UL1

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A very lightweight and spacious one-person tent with a generous porch. Pack size is very small and makes use of trekking poles to save extra weight. I used this tent when I hiked along the Brecon Beacons Way, in Wales. It is very lightweight and makes use of trekking poles to create a very sturdy and spacious tent with a generous porch/vestibule. This was useful during the walk as Wales is often quite wet so prolonged periods spent in the tent were quite frequent.  It is very fiddly to pitch and… Full review

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo

rated 4 of 5 stars A superb weight-saving tent that offers unprecedented head height and stability in high winds. Having put my doubts about single-skin tents aside, this is fast becoming my favoured tent for backpacking. Its combination of low weight, small pack size, and generous view thanks to the side entrance mean this is an excellent choice for lightweight backpacking.   The website says that it takes time to practise erecting the tent correctly—they are not wrong. I chose a short trip with fine weather… Full review
