Coleman Sundome 4

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Holds up to wind. Nice size. Full review

Timber Top Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars Received this tent as a gift from my parents in the early 1990's. Still use it today on every camping trip. Hi all, I received this tent way back in the early 1990's as a Christmas present from my parents (purchased from Service Merchandise). It was my first tent and still is my only tent. I use it every time we go on a camping vacation, which is at least 2-3 times a year. My kids, while they choose to sleep in their hammocks mostly, do end up in the tent with me when it gets too cold or in a rainstorm. Full review

MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2P

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very lightweight. Best for hiking. I would recommend it. Quick setup. Haven't used a footprint, but I don't usually and it has been fine.  If properly pegged out is pretty stable in the wind. Not good for snow. Lightweight fly as well so mine eventually got a few rips in it, but has been great for years now.  Good ventilation, especially with the optional pushout of little arm with velcro. Lots of room for one person how I usually go, but with both vestibules lots of room for two.  Packs small. Full review

Slumberjack In-Season 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Overall, this is a very nice tent if you can get it below $200. It is a true two-person tent that can fit two adult men and their gear without any problems. I have had this tent for a little over a year and have used it four times during the winter and cold camping in the Grand Canyon and North Texas. Living in Southeast Texas, I wouldn't even think about using this during the summer months.  Setup isn't too difficult. The poles are color-coded to make it easier. The three vestibule fly requires… Full review

Moss Tents Stardome III

rated 5 of 5 stars They don’t make tents like this any more. I’m still using this tent nearly thirty years after I purchased it. A few small repairs along the way and accommodations for some loss of waterproofing in the floor, but this is the best tent I have ever owned or slept in. These days, it would be considered heavy for backpacking, but I love it. Full review

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very sturdy. Holds up against wind and rain. For an overweight male and my fit wife, we had plenty of room for two 20-oz pads and a few clothing items at our feet. No room of course for bags inside, but side opening doors, generous vestibules at each side door, footprint matches perfectly. All together this tent, stakes, and sack (a stake for each cord, can get away with fewer), tent poles and sack, footprint, rain fly, and tent bag, all pack out for me at 3.6 lbs. When I'm alone this is a suite,… Full review

Moss Tents Stardome II

rated 5 of 5 stars As others here have said, there is great value in owning a Moss Stardome II despite its weight. You stay dry no matter what comes your way. With its narrow profile, high winds skim off its surfaces like water from a duck’s back. For my one-man tent camping outings, this is the ideal-sized tent. It allows me to pull in my backpack and still allows enough room for me to sleep comfortably. After “loaning” it to a friend (for several years!), I also had its floor replaced and other work done by… Full review

Moss Tents Olympic

rated 5 of 5 stars This Camden, Maine, original tent is roomy for two people even with a pack harbored inside overnight. This tent is the best tent I’ve ever owned. Full review

Arrowhead New River UnderQuilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Made-to-order synthetic hammock underquilt, full-length. The single most expensive piece of camping equipment I own, and worth it. Warmth: It's a full length quilt, rated (when I bought it) to 20 degrees; the website currently says 25. I have slept in it comfortably at 15-20 degrees, and windy, but with a hot water bottle, and a poncho wrapped around the outside of the quilt. Given that I don't sleep warm, I think the rating is more than fair. Fit & Comfort: The quilt is available in several… Full review
