Marmot Starlight 2P

rated 1.5 of 5 stars This tent has condensation issues, to the point where all your sleeping bags/quilts with be wet. Even in the arid western United States. I would not recommend this tent. The company’s customer service doesn't help the cause. Full review

REI Quarter Dome Air Hammock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars After spending several years in parachute double hammocks, the Quarter Dome Air feels like a trip to the Holiday Inn. The REI Quarter Dome Air Hammock is an answer to a question that I’ve had for years; “Why doesn’t someone make a lightweight hammock with an integrated bug net, plenty of sprawl room, and completely weatherproof?” Setup: The hammock has some interesting technology with draw cords that might intimidate the first-time user at opening glance, however, the entire system is a… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Proton Blanket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars It’s about 16 oz. and warm enough for Haleakala NP. Worked for me. Full review

Heroclip

rated 3 of 5 stars Missing item I ordered five clips as gifts and only received four. After several attempts to resolve this I still have had no response. Full review

Eureka! Amari Pass 3

rated 5 of 5 stars A great, easy to set up tent if light weight is not your primary concern. I stands up to wind and rain and is a roomy place for two people and their gear. I bought this tent back in 2014 and have stayed in it for weeks at a time. Usually it is just me and my trusty Irish Setter, but it is plenty roomy for two. It is rated as a three-person tent, but if there are three adults they will likely know more than they would like to about each other after an evening. My tent weighed in at just over six… Full review

3F Gear Lanshan 2

rated 5 of 5 stars When it comes to quality/weight versus price, I don't think this tent can be beaten. Great for one-person backpacking. First, some housekeeping. There are one or two minor thing which need adjustment form the "as supplied" condition which will make your life a lot easier before you take it out on a trip: 1) You'll need to seal the areas where the guy lines attach as they've been taped and then stitched through. Sealing otherwise looks good. 2) The adjustable straps at the peg points were threaded… Full review

Hilleberg Kaitum 3 Footprint

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Expensive, but useful, addition to your valued Hilleberg tent. Provides great level of floor protection against wear and mechanical damage, introduces floor in vestibules, extends the possible pitching options. The footprint stays connected to the tent during transportation and storage, which is simply great. Drying the footprint after night Purchasing the footprint for my Hilleberg Kaitum 3 tent was a difficult decision for me. The floor of this tent is already strong, and the footprint is quite… Full review

TNH Outdoors Two-Person Backpacking Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars Durable tent that won't leave you wet! Easy to set up and should last for years. Low cost makes this tent a very viable option for weekenders, car campers, backyarders, and section hikers. I bought this tent in February and had the chance to take it through some tough weather conditions. We had a good snowstorm which started as rain then sleet then snow for about 6-8 inches all with high winds. The tent performed flawlessly in these conditions. No worries about weather. This tent was a budget purchase… Full review

MSR 1-Person Tent

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I did own an MSR 1-person, color red tent (very similar to the Carbon Reflex 1 tent), which I gave to a nice kid who was 5 ft. 9 in. tall with a smaller body than my dainty 5'11" and 195 lbs. It is far more pleasant to have more space inside so that you do not feel trapped into a bivy bag configuration. In the earlier model MSR 1-person, I was camped in a lonely camp area opposite the Taylor River near Middle Fork of Snoqualmie in the late autumn. The small tent was really cramped. As I was drifting… Full review
