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 3 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… 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

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
