Recent Three-Season Tent Reviews

rated 4 of 5 stars
Wenzel StarLite

I've had a Starlight for twenty years now and it still is good for use. Camped in Oregon Cascades during summer and fall during light snows with protective tarp over it. Extra light, small storage bag, and gray-green color good for blending in. Perfect for backpacking bug protection in Oregon mosquito lakes. Perfect for bicycling tenting. Perfect price. Great tent for people used to camping old school. Reduce condensation by putting a light larger tarp over the top with paracord tied to front rear… Full review

Eureka! Timberline 2

Camped from CO to AK in 1996. Never got wet—snow, wind. Put a tarp inside the tent. I drove 9 hours each day from Denver, CO, to Talkeetna, AK, in 1996. I camped out every night following my drive during my drive. I never got wet, nor hampered by wind, etc./ snow I have camped in my Temberlline 2 tent in many conditions (i.e. backpacking, car camping, etc.). A great tent. Full review

Hyke & Byke Zion 2P

Decided on Hyke & Byke Zion 2 Person versus Naturehike Star River 2 Person Backpacking Tent. See my full video: https://youtu.be/Vzc8lsjkWn4 Full review

Sierra Designs Meteor Lite 3

High quality design, lightweight and spacious. Just spent 2 nights in 40 mph winds with rain and snow, and 0 issues! We were in a rush to keep moving,  so no pics from this trip, but I'll update on subsequent trips. I bought this as a bigger backpacking tent for my wife and I. We still have an LL Bean Microlight 2 ul, but for shorter trips or those with more tent time we wanted some room and the Meteor Lite delivered. The shoulder and head room is great. We had four people in the tent playing cards… Full review

Naturehike Cloud UP 2

Lightweight and easy to pitch.   A fabulous lightweight tent which I used for biking. Pros and cons as above. I have had no trouble getting it back into its bag, which is something others have struggled with.  The vestibule zips up close to the top of the inner door and there is very little overhang, which means in inclement weather if you unzip the outer door you risk getting water inside. There's no protection really as you enter or exit the tent. The vestibule is also very small with little… Full review

Eureka! Timberline SQ Outfitter 4

This is a very good car camping tent. It works well for two large adults who need some space. It has held up well with rain and hail. The materials are durable. However the poles bent with 35 mile per hour gusts. Eureka replaced the poles at a reasonable price. I purchased this tent for car camping in the typical state park and national forest campgrounds. I think I have used it fifteen to twenty nights. My camping friends express their appreciation for the comfort. I would trust it with winds up… Full review

NEMO Hornet 1P

1-Person Castle Reading many reviews on tents makes me ponder why people complain about space. A tent must be convenient, light, and use little space on your pack. Thus, my review isn't oriented to those who pack a car and camp next to it. I write for those like myself that walk and climb hours to a campsite. A one-person tent is enough for one person. One can't pretend to stuff around packs, dogs or the like. The Nemo excels on space. It is comfortable enough for a man over 6.2 feet tall, which… Full review

Big Agnes Tiger Wall UL1

Enough room, smart design, lightens the load. I had the Tiger Wall 2 and sold it to raise some money for a trip. I had seller's regret. The tent follows a pretty standard tripod pole design, but instead of a front vestibule, the vestibule is on the side. This increases accessibility and makes for a nicer vestibule.  The tent is really light. Even with the footprint (which I bought for non-ultralight essential travel) it comes to slightly over two pounds.  The tent is easy to set up. It is stable… Full review

Hilleberg Enan

Robust yet lightweight three-season solo tent. Space inside and especially in the porch is excellent. Headroom OK for those up to 6 feet.   Enan next to Angle Tarn, Cumbria   These are my initial thoughts on the Hilleberg Enan, something which I see as a "Mark 2" to the popular Akto. For those wanting to skip to the executive summary—after 20 nights it seems to be great tent for my needs (This initial review is based on my first two nights, but nothing I've learned since contradicts my initial… Full review
