ALPS Mountaineering Camp Creek 4-Person

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I can walk in and out without bending (5'7"). Easy to set up by one person if you don't get flustered. Easy up. Easily repacked. Door width and height. Don't have to step up way up and over the door jamb. I have not used this particular tent yet, but can't wait. I plan on miles with it this coming spring/summer/fall and will definitely confirm the usability and comfort of this tent. Full review

REI Quarter Dome 3 UL

rated 4 of 5 stars The Quarter Dome 3 offers headroom, steep walls, and enough space for three at a reasonable weight for one. The double doors, easy draws, and water tight seal make me a satisfied customer. It makes a really nice 2P, with extra room alternative, at 5lb 8oz. 2007 model Setup: The tent is cross pole design. There are only two pole end grommets since two of the four corners have reinforced webbing that the pole ends slip into. The poles have to be inserted through sleeves that run ¾ length of the tent.

Therm-a-Rest Slacker Suspenders Hanging Kit

rated 4 of 5 stars A quick and easy cinch-buckle hammock suspension system that provides a robust suspension with excellent adjustment capability. While not the lightest suspension out there nor the most complete (you'll still need carabiners or clips), the Slacker Suspenders are a quality option for someone seeking speedy, safe, and convenient suspension system when hanging a hammock, especially for those new to hammocking. What They Are The catchily named Therm-a-Rest Slacker Suspenders are hammock tree straps that… Full review

NEMO Hornet Elite 1P

rated 5 of 5 stars This is well designed, extremely lightweight, and packable one-person tent. I have backpacked Coast Range of British Columbia and in the Olgivie /Tombstone mountains in the Yukon. It performed very well in rain, snow, windy, and wet conditions. It sets up fast and provides superb shelter. I am 5'3" and found it had good space and headroom. The light weight is awesome, and it's extremely packable. I barely felt its presence in my pack. It sets up quickly and tautly with an easy and intuitive use. Full review

MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2P

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, great for backpacking. While it can accommodate two people snugly, I see it as my solo tent. This is sharp looking, easy to set up, and totally element proof. I went through a two-day extreme storm at Lows Lake in NY, without wind or rain getting me. Great buy! What else to say? It really is the perfect solo tent even though MSR makes smaller. This two-person shelter gives me that bit of fun space a big guy needs. Well worth every penny.   Full review

Sierra Designs Lightning HT 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Good all-rounder: durable, quality materials, good construction, weatherproof, quite spacious for two for a lightweight backpacking tent. Lightweight (if not quite ultralight by today's standards) tent. Good all-rounder, backpacking oriented, durable, spacious for two. Most comparable to the MSR Hubba Hubba, I consider this tent better because it's a tad lighter, considerably more spacious, better colours, and just different/unique. Frame design makes it wider at the top in the middle than at the… Full review

Kelty TN2

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is fun. I have multiple tents but this one is too user-friendly to skip on. The color coding and special features make this my go-to tent for backpacking with friends and car camping with the wife. I've used the TN2 multiple times and the durability mixed with the user-friendly setup and features leaves no room for disappointment. It serves every need from backpacking as a couple to car camping.  Setup The setup is color coded and clean. You couldn't possibly have a need for the instructions… Full review

Sierra Designs Sweet Suite 3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Spacious three-person shelter with lots of vestibule space. Light enough to carry for two or even solo, yet sturdy enough to take on the elements. Easy setup and takedown including Sierra Design’s “Burrito Bag” stuff sack.                                    Long Pond Pines—Baxter State Park Specs: Vestibule Area: 8.9 sq ft + 8.9 sq ft / 0.83 sq m + 0.83 sq m Floor Area: 40.4 ft2 / 3.75 m2 Peak Height: 43" / 109.2 cm Dimensions (L x W): 85 x 70(head) x… Full review

Outdoor Research Alpine Bivy

rated 4 of 5 stars This is my first bivy sac. I wanted to try one for its compact size and as a backcountry shelter. After much research I settled on the OR Alpine Bivy. I used it recently for a two-night outing and so far I’m very pleased. I would recommend taking the time to stake it down. Earlier this fall I slept in the Alpine Bivy for two consecutive nights on the Atlantic Coast in Newfoundland. The first evening was beautiful, about 5deg Celsius. I slept with the cover open and watched the stars through the… Full review
