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 rain… 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

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very sturdy. Holds up against wind and rain. For an overweight male and my fit wife, we had plenty of room for two 20-oz pads and a few clothing items at our feet. No room of course for bags inside, but side opening doors, generous vestibules at each side door, footprint matches perfectly. All together this tent, stakes, and sack (a stake for each cord, can get away with fewer), tent poles and sack, footprint, rain fly, and tent bag, all pack out for me at 3.6 lbs. When I'm alone this is a suite,… Full review

Coleman 5-person Instant Dome Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent for car camping—very easy to put up and take down. Big enough for two adults comfortably with room to spare. I am 6 feet tall and found this tent to the best for being able to stand up straight while changing clothes. During rainy times I bring my beach chair into the tent and have ample room for a sitting area and my cot area. Love it in rain and wind. Stands up well in all sorts of weather. I would buy it again.  Full review

Eureka! Timberline 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Quality tents that will stand up to use and abuse for decades. Eureka tents have performed well for me for 30+ years. I have used a Timberline 2 and a Flashlight (?) for years.  Was introduced to Eureka tents working at a backpack/canoe camp in Maine, where they stood up to heavy use/abuse and lots of rain and bugs. So when I could finally scrape together some $, I bought a Timberline ('85) for post-college geology field camp summer course.  While too heavy for backpacking, I still use the Timberline… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Solitude Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is phenomenal. I've taken it to Concordia in Pakistan, remote Himachal Pradesh, Costa Rican it. My wife LOVES it. She says anywhere the tent goes, she goes. Here's a tip: order a brand spankin' new MH Solitude online for yourself. You're no dummy; anyone who's checking out a tent of this caliber has a whole lot going on for yourself. And by the way, the rain fly pullover IT DOES NOT LEAK EVER. So if you're planning to break this tent in on the Olympic're… Full review

Eureka! Midori 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is an excellent three-season backpacking tent, priced right for budget-minded backpackers. The 2018 updated version of the Midori solves some of the concerns of the previous design, giving a second vestibule and entrance, and changing the venting options, while maintaining a good amount of headroom and solid weather-proof design. I am a longtime fan of EUREKA! tents, and currently own the tent of my dreams (also reviewed by me here on TS, a Timberline SQ4), but that big boy is wholly too big… Full review

The North Face Meso 2

rated 2 of 5 stars Very disappointed with my North Face Meso 2. I paid the extra for a North Face tent as I thought paying the extra money was worth the quality I would get from the North Face. I was totally wrong, the tent has literally been used twice camping by a lake and the attachments on the fly sheet have come away. Like the other review on here, I bought mine in Cape Town, South Africa, through Duesouth, but don't know where to turn to have this design/build issue addressed. Full review

The North Face Rock 32

rated 3 of 5 stars It's a decent car camping tent. It's a decent car camping tent. I take it with me on extended stays and there's ample room for my gear and myself. Handles the wind great...the rain is another story. I had to waterproof the bathtub floor as the first time I used it rain seeped right through on anything touching the ground. Full review
