Recent Three-Season Tent Reviews

rated 5 of 5 stars
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

The North Face Stormbreak 1

Amazing little tent! Camp 2019 This was my second solo tent (my first was a Eureka Backcountry 1 in 2002) after a lot of research and not willing to shell out 400 bucks. I bought a Stormbreak 1 in the summer of 2013. I have used it extensively over the past 9 years. It has accompanied me on many canoe and backpacking trips (at least 100 nights). From 4 to 10 days in length. I used it as my guide tent leading 2 to 3,  6-day canoe trips every summer for 5 years.   It is easy to set up, well thought… Full review

Marmot Tungsten UL 2P

A 2-person lightweight tent that combines freestanding structure, durable floor and fly, and a lot of space while keeping a sane price tag. But it compromises on not being ultralight, having asymmetric vestibules, and full mesh inner walls. I’ve been needing to lighten up my gear and a tent is one of the heaviest items in my bag. My requirements for a tent were a 2-person tent for versatility, maximum weight of 1.7 kg, freestanding as I usually camp at places where it’s hard to place stakes,… Full review

Snugpak Ionosphere

The most popular and perhaps the best one-man bivy-tent, especially for tactical purposes. The Ionosphere has a longstanding tradition among the military, survivors and bushcrafters. It’s not the lightest, but it’s spacious, well built, super-stable, easy to assemble and take down, stealthy, and will last forever even if abused. It can hold two in an emergency and doesn’t cost a fortune. I consider the Ionosphere a sleep-only shelter. I only get into it to rest, or when forced by the weather… Full review

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
