Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2

Overcoming the fear of the lightweight material. I have had this for about seven years and purchased on sale at REI and wanted weight savings since my North Face Bullfrog began leaking (loved that tent for over 20 years). I was super skeptical about the material resistance to tears since often have to pitch in interesting conditions. I made a Tyvex floor for a ground cover after getting some tears on the floor both by the rocks and a 90-pound Lab. The tears were repaired with that invisible tape… Full review

Sierra Designs Clip Flashlight CD

I had the Clip Flashlight CD for probably around 25 years. Seriously, I did! Gave it to a friend today. It's never let me down. Not once did it ever leak with the fly on, but you do need to get it just right to cover all the corners. I have always used the ground cloth, and make sure, it's tucked under the tent. So, I just now bought a new tent, because I just wanted something new. I hope I'm not too disappointed! Full review

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2

The Copper Spur HV UL2 and UL2... A Tale of Two Tents. Big Agnes has been around for about twenty years. Should you require it, their outstanding customer service could not possibly be improved upon. Their stated goal is to produce the best gear possible to help folks get outside and chase their dreams. I think they stand true to that goal. You can learn more about them here: https://www.bigagnes.com/our-story. Copper Spur is the name of this product line. UL stands for ultralight [weight] and 2… Full review

The North Face Stormbreak 1

This tent is basic, but works wonderfully. I have taken it on several two- and three-day backpacking trips. I am a 5'5" female and there is plenty of room inside, and it is light and fits inside my pack very well. I would definitely recommend it for any solo backpacker who is on a budget but wants a quality tent. It is great in the spring, summer, and fall. I have not gone camping with it in the winter yet. This tent is easy to set up. It is color-coded to attach the fly correctly, and the poles… Full review

Eureka! Rainier

Eureka! Rainier—the perfect trail companion! Everyone has covered this tent very clearly in reviews, all to my agreement. I just want to add that mine was purchased somewhere around 1992! Yes, from Dick's or perhaps the chain they bought out in the late nineties. Anyway, I broke it out this afternoon in preparation for Patagonia, always waiting for it to crumble out of the bag. NOPE, still well intact, very pliable, and pops right up into place! It's been with me to the big parks (Yosemite, Yellowstone,… Full review

Kelty Gunnison 2

Disappointed in zipper quality. I purchased a Kelty Gunnison 2 around late October 2019 and was very excited about setting it up. The awning and the three-season build were the selling points for me. The tent has withstood the AZ desert weather and 68 mph wind gusts. However, by the end of Jan 2020, the front zipper began splitting. I was able to fix it to where both zippers were functional, or so I thought. As of Feb 2, 2020, the bottom zipper continues to split and I can only use the top zipper… Full review

L.L.Bean Microlight FS 2

Lightweight—at a cost. If you look at my profile, you’ll see that my three reviews prior to this one have all been 5 stars. You might assume that I lack objectivity in reviewing the things that I purchase. Well, in my old age I’ve learned to research more carefully than I had in the past.  I thought I’d done my diligence before purchasing this L.L. Bean Microlight FS 2 tent. I liked that it was very versatile in the various configurations for ventilating the tent. One could spend comfortable… Full review

Hilleberg Anjan 2

TENT DESIGN UPDATED IN 2017 Tough weather protection for a three-season tent. I ordered and received my Hilleberg Anjan 2 in early 2018, to complete the last half of my bicycle tour from Phoenix back to Wisconsin. The tent was redesigned in 2017 I believe, to address the rain protection issues that were described in the previous review. The corners of the outer tent now extend to the ground, while still offering ventilation all the way round via catenary design. I ordered the tent to give my Hilleberg… Full review

Sierra Designs Clip Flashlight CD

14 years old and still going strong. I bought this tent in '06 and it's still going strong. New seam seal and waterproof on year 10. It's heavier than today's UL tents, but more reliable. I have slept in 28-degree weather comfortably. It does well in high winds.  Taking back BA Tiger Wall UL and going back to the CF for my upcoming through hike of the Colorado Trail.   Warm, easy set up in dark, long, so have room for pack or dog at feet, even with two people. Durable. Only tent left standing… Full review
