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

ALPS Mountaineering Chaos 3

rated 5 of 5 stars It's very rain resistant when the fly is up and has a bathtub floor. Durable... I've used this dozens of times in all four seasons. Takes about 5-7 minutes for one person to set up. Easy to disassemble as well. Double access points on either side (no crawling over tent mate). Has two large vestibules for boots and gear. I bought this tent new in 2011. It has been in Eastern Oregon in winter rain, in Modoc County during a fluke early ice storm in the fall, in the Sierras on numerous occasions during… Full review

GoLite Hex 3 Shelter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I use this on short duration backpacking trips and it is great for two people or one 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 in fall/winter… 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

Big Agnes Rabbit Ears 6

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bring the whole family and the dog! Plenty of room for all, ample headroom to maneuver without hindrance, and rainfly awnings over the front door and rear window for protected airflow in any weather.                                        Big Agnes Rabbit Ears 6                 What I love about the Big Agnes Rabbit Ears 6:   Spacious interior design Generous height (6'9"+) Ample fly awning for complete door and window coverage Bright interior (lime green floor likely… Full review

Eureka! Timberline SQ Outfitter 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Very weather resistant, easy to set up, 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
