Big Agnes Tiger Wall UL2

The Big Agnes Tiger Wall 2 UL tent delivers on its promise of light weight and comfort. Take care of your tent and it will take care of you. Setup: The setup uses a single pole. The pole has a two hubs; one in the front for stability, and one in the middle to splay the tent for room. The back of the tent has one pole that runs down the spine. For setup, you lay the tent out, place the three pole ends into the grommets (two in front, one in the back)and then attach the cross pole on the top to the… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1

Robust but lightweight tent that massively overdelivers on value for money. I am on my second Lynx 1 having retired the first after five years of solid use. I'd been looking for a lighter one-person tent and saw the Lynx1 online in 2014. It was very cheap so I decided to just buy one and try it out. After five years, a few drops of water started to come through the seams where the poles cross over as the tape sealing started to wear. I gave it away to a friend who needed a one-man tent for less… Full review

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2

Easy, quick setup, performs well even in heavy rains, lightweight. Love it. I have the new 2020 version of the HV UL2 tent. Love it so far. After first watching a YouTube video on how to set it up, I have always been able to set it up in 5 minutes or less. I have slept in weather in the very low 30’s, as well as in heavy thunderstorms with gusting winds and heavy rains. So far the tent has performed admirably.   Though pricey, it does not come with a footprint, so I made my own out of Tyvek (be… Full review

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2

Overcoming the fear of the lightweight material. I have had this for about seven years and purchased on sale at REI and wanted weight savings since my North Face Bullfrog began leaking (loved that tent for over 20 years). I was super skeptical about the material resistance to tears since often have to pitch in interesting conditions. I made a Tyvex floor for a ground cover after getting some tears on the floor both by the rocks and a 90-pound Lab. The tears were repaired with that invisible tape… Full review

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2

The Copper Spur HV UL2 and UL2... A Tale of Two Tents. Big Agnes has been around for about twenty years. Should you require it, their outstanding customer service could not possibly be improved upon.

The North Face Stormbreak 1

This tent is basic, but works wonderfully. I have taken it on several two- and three-day backpacking trips. I am a 5'5" female and there is plenty of room inside, and it is light and fits inside my pack very well. I would definitely recommend it for any solo backpacker who is on a budget but wants a quality tent. It is great in the spring, summer, and fall. I have not gone camping with it in the winter yet. This tent is easy to set up. It is color-coded to attach the fly correctly, and the poles… Full review

Kelty Gunnison 2

Disappointed in zipper quality. I purchased a Kelty Gunnison 2 around late October 2019 and was very excited about setting it up. The awning and the three-season build were the selling points for me. The tent has withstood the AZ desert weather and 68 mph wind gusts. However, by the end of Jan 2020, the front zipper began splitting. I was able to fix it to where both zippers were functional, or so I thought. As of Feb 2, 2020, the bottom zipper continues to split and I can only use the top zipper… Full review

L.L.Bean Microlight FS 2

Lightweight—at a cost. If you look at my profile, you’ll see that my three reviews prior to this one have all been 5 stars. You might assume that I lack objectivity in reviewing the things that I purchase. Well, in my old age I’ve learned to research more carefully than I had in the past.  I thought I’d done my diligence before purchasing this L.L. Bean Microlight FS 2 tent. I liked that it was very versatile in the various configurations for ventilating the tent. One could spend comfortable… Full review

Hilleberg Anjan 2

TENT DESIGN UPDATED IN 2017 Tough weather protection for a three-season tent. I ordered and received my Hilleberg Anjan 2 in early 2018, to complete the last half of my bicycle tour from Phoenix back to Wisconsin. The tent was redesigned in 2017 I believe, to address the rain protection issues that were described in the previous review. The corners of the outer tent now extend to the ground, while still offering ventilation all the way round via catenary design. I ordered the tent to give my Hilleberg… Full review
