Timber Top Tent

Easy to set up when I first bought/used it. At the top, it appeared that two poles were out of place, and the lower joints kept collapsing. I rearranged them, and still have a collapsing issue. Can anyone take a couple pics of the poles at the top and at the joints so I can align them correctly? Thanks! Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1

The best possible one-man tent on the market regardless of price. Setup easy, no footprint. Stability is fair only due to the two-pole system and must be staked out with guide lines. Heavy rains for 15 hours, heavy to light, in the Wind River Range, Wyoming; did not detect any moisture, let alone water. The tent packed into an 85-liter backpack with eight days food and gear, with exception of my mattress which was outside. The reason for my commit "regardless of price" is that one pays a premium… Full review

REI Half Dome 2 HC

I've had this same tent for over 10 years. It's still the best of all my tents and I love camping in it, especially in cooler weather—nice and cozy! Fast to set up and take down, water tight—I've been through days-long deluges in this tent. The older models, like this one, have two-way zippers on the rain fly. Great for ventilation and I like that I can unzip from the top down and see out without having to completely open the rain fly. They discontinued this option on the newer models. I had… Full review

REI Half Dome 2 HC

After more than 10 years of use, I finally feel confident in offering a review on this tent... Ha ha. Purchased new over ten years ago for use with my wife. We have taken it on overnight backpacks, week-long backpacks, multi-week car camping trips, in heat, cold, thunder, and snow. And after ten years use, perhaps 120 nights sleeping in it, we finally need to apply new waterproofing to the fly. I take very good care of my gear, but this is extraordinary. Setup is a snap, solo or otherwise. We've… Full review

Easton Rimrock 1

This is an all-around decent solo backpacking tent. I purchased this tent on close-out some four years ago for a lighter option on solo trips. As it was on close-out and a former floor model at REI, it didn't have any stakes or a footprint, but it was cheap as chips. Given my budget at the time, it was a no-brainer. I made sure to set it up in the yard before I went out on the first trip, as the pole design is not 100% intuitive—but it is clever and efficient. The poles are color-coded to the… Full review

Wild River B-487UWF 3-Man

Have similar, or same tent. Advertised to be a three-man backpack tent. Mine carries product number B-487UWF. Have used as just myself to camp/fish trips most of the time. Have done two people comfortably. I think three would be cramped and would break the unwritten rule about touching the sides of tent when it is raining outside. For features, won't get into that, as I'm sure it is discontinued, perhaps company out of existence also. Purchased at a store called Ardan's, also no longer around. Must… Full review

Zpacks Duplex Tent

One of the best tents I have ever owned, worth every penny. Ideal for three seasons ultralight backpacking. I used this tent for six backpacking trips in 2019. One in the rain, five dry, with temperatures ranging 20°-75°. I purchased it with the Duplex Freestanding Flex Kit that adds 300 grams but makes it self-standing. It takes a blink of an eye to set it up, and it can stay up without any stakes. In the photo above it is set up on the deck of house, no stakes and very solidly up. In the outdoors… Full review

The latest design of the Lunar Solo utilizes 100% Silicone coated Polyester material that is a marked improvement over the Silnylon that was used previously and is a reflection of Six Moon Designs' efforts to continually improve their product designs. Overview The Lunar Solo is a popular Six Moon Designs single-wall solo tent design that was upgraded… Full review

Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL2

The bag for this tent randomly ripped, so I contacted Big Agnes to get a new bag, since the tent was under warranty. Customer service denied me a new bag because of "damaging use", yet that was not the case, and the photo I had sent showed a small patch of dirt on the bag. Therefore, don't allow any dirt, not even a speck, to get on your Big Agnes products or else your warranty won't stand. Full review
