Eureka! Alpine Meadows

rated 5 of 5 stars 30+ years and going strong My father bought me this tent as a teenager over 30 years ago.  The two of us spent countless nights on the Appalachian Trail, Foothills Trail and various other trails across the Southeast over the following 10 years.  It's a bulky tent, and on the heavy side for backpacking, so we eventually upgraded to a smaller, lighter tent.  This tent sat in storage for probably 10 years, but last weekend, my girlfriend and I went camping and since we were't hiking in, i opted… Full review

Big Agnes Seedhouse SL1

rated 1 of 5 stars This is a high priced tent with horrible weak tent poles that will eventually crack. It is like a ticking time bomb. This is a high priced tent with horrible poles that will crack. It is like a ticking time bomb. Has ruined two backpack trips. They have a design defect where the pole connects to the hub. The hub peg inserts into the pole, but the pole wall isn't strong enough to bear the load and eventually snaps. Sure you can send it in to Big Agnes, but they replace it with a pole that seems to… Full review

Eureka! Tetragon 8

rated 3 of 5 stars Great tent if you're not walking far... I got this tent for about $199.99 CAD on sale plus tax between 2015-2016, and it was marked down 75 percent on Clearance. I am saying this because I look up to the other comments of under $100 and the MSRP listed of $139.99 (I think it isn't shown on this page). Even if that is USD I still paid way more than everyone else. Either tariffs are high on camping gear from the US or I should have done my research. Either way I am not so much disappointed as it is… Full review

Wenzel StarLite

rated 5 of 5 stars You MUST seal the seams. This is 100% mandatory. Also it may be favorable to use a light "cover" or bivy sack inside the tent, as would as a matter of course when using a tarp for many. I've used this specific product for four nights, one of which produced light rain. I used a highly similar product years ago, for more than 100 nights over a period of several years. In a nor'easter in Nova Scotia once, the previous product leaked. In a heavy, wet and foggy April snowstorm in New York, melting snow… Full review

Tarptent StratoSpire 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, very sturdy, and roomy. Awesome tent. We have the fabric inner and the tent weighs about 2 3/4 pounds. It is incredibly sturdy and uses robust fabrics. Compare this tent to flimsy, for example, Big Agnes tents that use thin poles and thin/fragile fabrics and there is no comparison. Because the tent uses trekking poles it is incredibly sturdy. And, the floor of the tent actually measures as wide as the manufacturers spec (52"). Most tent companies exaggerate the dimensions of the tent… Full review

MSR FreeLite 1

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Excellent lightweight one-person tent for backpacking. While not spacious, it gets the job done, dries quickly, and weighs very little. This tent is easy to pitch if it isn't too windy. There is one pole set which connects to the main tent body. Overall, it can be pitched as quick as any other one-person tent. As far as stability, I wouldn't want to use this in a windy situation. There aren't enough tie downs for the tent fly and it is nearly impossible to get it truly taut so it ends up flapping… Full review

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Holds up to wind. Nice size. Full review

Timber Top Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars Received this tent as a gift from my parents in the early 1990's. Still use it today on every camping trip. Hi all, I received this tent way back in the early 1990's as a Christmas present from my parents (purchased from Service Merchandise). It was my first tent and still is my only tent. I use it every time we go on a camping vacation, which is at least 2-3 times a year. My kids, while they choose to sleep in their hammocks mostly, do end up in the tent with me when it gets too cold or in a rainstorm. Full review

MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2P

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very lightweight. Best for hiking. I would recommend it. Quick setup. Haven't used a footprint, but I don't usually and it has been fine.  If properly pegged out is pretty stable in the wind. Not good for snow. Lightweight fly as well so mine eventually got a few rips in it, but has been great for years now.  Good ventilation, especially with the optional pushout of little arm with velcro. Lots of room for one person how I usually go, but with both vestibules lots of room for two.  Packs small. Full review
