rated 4.5 of 5 stars
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

Eureka! Timberline SQ Outfitter 4

Had a Timberline four years ago. It was a great family camper, but could not handle strong winds. This was the Timberline 4, which is basically a smaller version of the Timberline 6. It was fine for car camping, easy to set up, roomy, and waterproof. Easy to get in and out of, bugproof, and overall a nice family tent which we used for a couple of years. Until strong winds arose. We were camping when a thunderstorm with strong gusting winds came up. The poles buckled and I spent the next hour or… Full review

Eureka! Timberline SQ Outfitter 6

  What can you say about this tent? It looks perfect when you take it out of the car, and when you set it up at a car camping spot—I think the other ones give you respect what do you think? It doesn't look like any new-fangold dome tents. It's like when Snoopy went to take a ride on the river and put inner tubes under his raft, and then he used an A-frame tent. But then you hear about how this thing holds up to nature and the elements. Then you also understand this thing being under 18 lbs for… Full review

Hyke & Byke Zion 2P

This is a quality tent. Sets up easy and keeps off the rain. I take it on two- and three-day backpacking trips. It is my go-to tent. You can not beat it for value. I wish it were two pounds lighter. Quality tent. Easy setup.  Full review

Marmot Tungsten UL 1P

A great lightweight solo tent.   Tungsten Ul 1 I own numerous solo tents, I keep going lighter and smaller, and this tent is great. It weighs a little over 2 1/2 lbs, and packs down very small. I carry its parts seperately, and compress the body and fly into a Sea to Summit ultra-sil compression sack. Sea to Summit Traveller 50 degree bag, poles, Tungsten Ul 1, stakes, Nemo Tensor pad The tent has a bathtub floor, and completely mesh upper. It has a vent, a headlamp lampshade pocket, and mesh storage… Full review

Durston X-Mid 1P

I bought it based on it being lightweight at 28 ounces, ease of setup, and low investment at $200. Thanks, Dan for bringing this to market. It's now my go-to shelter on the one or two backpacking trips I squeeze in a month in mostly Ohio and West Virginia. I'm an avid, but not hardcore, hiker who likes a lightweight pack while enjoying the outdoors. I've backpacked and camped with this tent a dozen times over the last year. It has travelled well for over 300 miles in dry and wet, hot and cold conditions. Full review

Durston X-Mid 1P

Excellent value in an innovatively designed, lightweight, and well thought-out solo tent by UL hiker Dan Durston.   This solo tent is a good option for folks seeking a good balance of light weight, space, simple/fast pitch, and strength in various conditions. I think the design is very innovative, allowing poles to be placed to the side so that entry/exit is not obstructed by poles. The floor has a diagonal shape inside a rectangular-based fly. The separate mesh inner clips into the fly at the… Full review

MSR Hubba NX Solo

Great tent! Lightweight yet can handle a strong rainstorm with no problem! Easy to set up. Great backpacking tent! This is far and away the best tent I've ever owned. I had the opportunity to use this tent during a weekend of heavy rain. The remnants of a hurricane impacted the Carolinas while I was hiking the Appalachian Trail. I was pounded with heavy rain throughout the night. Because of a poor location choice, mud ended up flowing between my footprint and floor. I remained dry! This tent is… Full review

LightHeart Gear Duo

Easy setup. Other reviews here suggest this tent is difficult to set up and needs practice. I have to disagree... I just bought this tent, and set it up for the first time. I had no problem whatsoever (and I am not an engineer). Very self-explanatory. And I am a newby backpacker who hasn't set up a tent in over 10 years. The vestibule space is very roomy compared to others I researched. Recommend the carbon poles for the vestibule. Full review
