Kelty TN2

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is fun. I have multiple tents but this one is too user-friendly to skip on. The color coding and special features make this my go-to tent for backpacking with friends and car camping with the wife. I've used the TN2 multiple times and the durability mixed with the user-friendly setup and features leaves no room for disappointment. It serves every need from backpacking as a couple to car camping.  Setup The setup is color coded and clean. You couldn't possibly have a need for the instructions… Full review

Sierra Designs Sweet Suite 3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Spacious three-person shelter with lots of vestibule space. Light enough to carry for two or even solo, yet sturdy enough to take on the elements. Easy setup and takedown including Sierra Design’s “Burrito Bag” stuff sack.                                    Long Pond Pines—Baxter State Park Specs: Vestibule Area: 8.9 sq ft + 8.9 sq ft / 0.83 sq m + 0.83 sq m Floor Area: 40.4 ft2 / 3.75 m2 Peak Height: 43" / 109.2 cm Dimensions (L x W): 85 x 70(head) x… Full review

MSR FreeLite 1

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a very light tent that packs small. It's not for people who like to have a roomy tent, but there is room to keep your pack and other things either inside or in the vestibule. I bought this tent at an REI garage sale. I have been working to decrease my pack weight for a while and liked the look and setup of this tent. It is under 3 pounds and packs very small. I recently purchased a smaller backpack (45 l) since I don't usually go backpacking in the winter months anymore. So, although I love… Full review

Marmot Hypno

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for a beginner. Maybe not quite three-season. Setup: Easiest tent to set up. Takes less than five minutes by yourself (quicker after practice). Stability: Stayed secure in 30+ mph winds Weather: Bathtub base keeps you dry in any wet conditions. Ventilation: Excellent, zero condensation issues with mesh top. But maybe too much when the temp drops. Storage: Rainfly extends to cover each side door, pack, boots etc fit nicely. Packabilty: Compact. Had more than enough room left in pack. Have never… Full review

L.L.Bean Microlight Ul 2-Person Backpacking Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars Very lightweight, freestanding tent for two (-ish). This is not for the tall or wide, but as seen in the pics, it fits two Klymit Static V's with about a foot to spare in length. My main point of this review is to show the size of the tent. I haven't managed to make it outside yet. The tent packs up small and is very light. There is ample headroom for two, but it could be a bit longer. I prefer to keep my packs inside the tent to keep creepy crawlers off and out. Ever had a scorpion in your backpack? Full review

Marmot Limelight 2P

rated 1 of 5 stars Bought this tent new on Ebay in Jan 2018 and after less than one year and a total of about 15-20 nights camping it is now unusable. First the Velcro straps attaching the fly to the poles fell off, then the seam tape at the bottom of the fly began to deteriorate, finally (during rain) water flooded into the tent directly through the ground sheet and bottom part of the fly resulting in me getting soaked. I wouldn’t dare to take out this tent again. Though there is supposedly a lifetime guarantee… Full review

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

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

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
