Big Agnes Tiger Wall UL3

Good 2 person tent that really strikes a balance between weight and livability Note - This is the newer Solution Dye version of the Tiger Wall UL3. If you read my reviews you may know I don't like 2 person UL tents. In my travels, I have not had luck leaving equipment in the vestibules. Spiders, scorpions, porcupine and possum have all make their way to my vestibules. So we require a tent big enough for gear inside. After looking at the Tiger Wall UL2, we decided on the Tiger Wall UL3. The UL2 is… Full review

Six Moon Designs Serenity Ultralight NetTent

The Serenity UL NetTent from Six Moon Designs works great as part of a primary shelter system, but is light enough to carry as a secondary option. So many ways to set up in shelters, under tarps, or open to the sky makes it great for distance hiking.   Just add six stakes and a hiking pole Since I was going to be testing the Six Moon Designs Gatewood Cape I figured I would try out their Serenity UL NetTent along with it. The two are designed to work together well and they do, but I used the tent… Full review

MSR Hubba Hubba 2P

One of the classic ultralight tents. Now in its ninth iteration it is a superlative light tent. Yeah, a real back saver! Welcome home. One of the classic ultralight tents. Now in its ninth iteration it is a superlative light tent. Yeah, a real back saver! The design is very ergonomic. You can sit up inside easily. The zippers are very smooth. As in any tent one needs to be gentle. I really liked the space of the fly/vestibule design. Plenty of room to stick your pack, boots, and trusty hiking pole… Full review

Ferrino Lightent 1 Pro

From Italy, a well-made one-person tent with nice features that would be much better with just a few improvements in design and manufacturing choices. Still a good and capable three-season tent with high quality and attention to detail, relatively lightweight, and decent price tag. I got tipped about some makers and models of Euro tents I’ve never heard about before by a friend living in Spain. Ferrino is one of them. It’s an Italian company offering a variety of outdoor gear and apparel for… Full review

Eureka! Tetragon 9

I've had this tent since 2007 and used it plenty of times through many conditions during those years. Overall, one of the better tents I have owned. Can be set up in less than 5 minutes, staked and rainfly included. I've had very little leakage that only happened during a pretty torrential rain.  The only repairs I have made were to sew the loop back on the very top of the tent and replace one segment of pole this entire time.  Full review

BlackWolf Stealth Mesh Tent

Good entry-level tent as a starting point to overnight hiking without paying big $$. Simple and rugged design, but not for the serious overnight hiker. Bought this tent as an entry-level option when starting overnight hiking and it is serving its purpose to date. Overall design is simple; quality and functionality is good, however the poles are poorly designed for sleeves, catching often and generally making setup and pack-up a bit of a PITA, especially at the end of a long day hiking. The polyethylene… Full review

Macpac Microlight

Have used the Macpac Microlight for over 20 years. There are lighter alternatives, however, this is a tried and tested "bomb proof." Have used it through winter snows and mountain "hoolies." You won't go wrong with this tent. Simple and quick to put up. Bomb proof design and top quality fabrics and components. Treat it well and it will look after you for a lifetime of adventures.  Full review

MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2P

Poorly made. Panel design is subpar. Leaked unmercifully first night. I purchased this tent while on a four-month bicycle tour to replace a Marmot Tungsten 2P.  After five hard years of cycletouring it failed. I was in Rotterdam and pick this up at a local sporting good shop. I had done my research and this was the only one they had that met my needs. They did not have the Marmot one. So I purchased this and the first night I set it up in my hotel room to test. Everything looked OK. I was a little… Full review

Hilleberg Rogen

The Rogen feels like a Tardis. Being a dome it has an excellent area of good headroom. The long sides of the inner are vertical because of the two porches and each porch is a generous 1.0 m2. On a recent trip we comfortably sat three people for evening drinks; there would have been room for a couple more too. There is space for a 55 L rucksack, boots, waterproofs, and cooking gear in each porch. With cooking gear put to one side, each of you can enter through your own door so you can get in quickly… Full review
