ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1

Handled 50 mph wind gusts during winter trip in the Sierras. Rugged / somewhat light /inexpensive/ simple enough for most backpacking trips. And it has windows. Glad I have it and would buy it again, even as a backup/loaner. I am an intermediate backpacker who was looking for a 'lighter' 1-person backpacking tent for my "collection," saw this and couldn't pass it up for the price (see pros above for list of what I was looking for). I figured I could reduce weight with titanium stakes, fewer/thinner… Full review

Tarptent Aeon Li

Probably the lightest solo tent on the market, but definitely not light in its performance. I've used this tent for the last three years on numerous backpacking trips and all seasons (save winter) and it's a winner!   The Aeon Li is a single-wall solo tent constructed of Dyneema (.51 in the tent and 1.0 in the floor). It's a full feature tent (not tarp) that weighs just over a pound all in (19 oz including guy lines and states). This svelte tent packs a lot of punch into its light weight. Full… Full review

MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2P

Quality tent that I have used for five seasons. Has held up well throughout the time of use with no issues. Highly recommend this tent for three-season use. More than enough livable space for one person. Could be a little tight for two people depending on the size of group.Large headroom, easy to change clothes in. The tent is a little heavy compared to some of other products out there. Definitely not an ultralight tent. This tent is durable! Full review

Eureka! Timberline 4

Great tent design but not as durable as the older models.   Timberline 4 I'm a huge fan of A-frame Eureka tents, but the modern construction of the standard Timberline model is a little suspect. I initially bought this as a backup to the wonderful Timberline 6 Outfitter, so this sat for a number of years unused. Recently I started bringing it out so I didn't have to backpack the larger version to the campsite. After camping in this for at least 6-8 nights, I can say it's pretty solid and definitely… Full review

Big Agnes Scout UL2

I was brand new to hiking and everyone kept telling me about going light, so I bought my Big Agnes because it was supposed to be light and roomy. Since I bought my Scout I have found it to be perfect for my usage. My first hike with my Scout was a SoBo of the Appalachian Trail—it worked great. It's lightweight and it kept me dry through my share of storms. I've done two hikes of the Appalachian Trail with it and one hike each of the Pacific Crest and the Continental Divide Trails. I liked being… Full review

Sierra Designs High Route 1

Very light and compact tent. Easy to set up. Very light and compact. Excellent three-season tent for extended backpack trips. It has two vestibules, one with a full size door for getting in and out, and the other with a small "door" for putting gear in and out. It is a very reasonable size for folks I would say up to 6'3" with some space at the head or foot for things you want to keep access to—flashlight, water bottle, etc. It can be set up as a complete double-wall tent, or the two parts can… Full review

The North Face Stormbreak 1

For price/weight/features comparison, I'll take this over the SnugPak Ionosphere. This the lightest and best made solo tent I could find that is free standing.  I plan to hike in deserts and rocky areas where using a stake to hold up your tent may not be possible. Out of the box I weighed this tent: 3 lb 11 oz SnugPak Ionosphere: 2 lb 15 oz, and must have stakes to remain upright. For the extra 12 oz, I'll be able to pitch this thing anywhere. Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Helix 1

Don't be a brand snob and ignore this tent. This thing surprised me. This tent is well made. Stitching is good. Seam sealing is good. Sheds water great, no leaks. It is lightweight, not gram w**nie light, but light enough for me. The listed weight is correct. Mine is 48 ounces including the tent, fly, poles, and stakes, and stuff sacks. Comes with mini groundhog style stakes. Great weight for this much head and foot room while lying down and head and shoulder room while sitting up. Clever design… Full review
