Eureka! Rainier

Eureka! Rainier—the perfect trail companion! Everyone has covered this tent very clearly in reviews, all to my agreement. I just want to add that mine was purchased somewhere around 1992! Yes, from Dick's or perhaps the chain they bought out in the late nineties. Anyway, I broke it out this afternoon in preparation for Patagonia, always waiting for it to crumble out of the bag. NOPE, still well intact, very pliable, and pops right up into place! It's been with me to the big parks (Yosemite, Yellowstone,… 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

Sierra Designs Clip Flashlight CD

14 years old and still going strong. I bought this tent in '06 and it's still going strong. New seam seal and waterproof on year 10. It's heavier than today's UL tents, but more reliable. I have slept in 28-degree weather comfortably. It does well in high winds.  Taking back BA Tiger Wall UL and going back to the CF for my upcoming through hike of the Colorado Trail.   Warm, easy set up in dark, long, so have room for pack or dog at feet, even with two people. Durable. Only tent left standing… Full review

LightHeart Gear SoLong 6

This tent is a lightweight beast! Completed my AT thru hike and tented well over 120 nights. Easy and quick to set up. Stands up to storms well. With practice I reached the point I was able to set up the tent in about 5 minutes. My tent came without stakes. I bought MSR Groundhog stakes and felt they were a good choice. One of the "luxury" items I carried was a long shafted cheap screw driver to help find spots to set the stakes and it was soooo worth the extra ounces. The AT is full of rocks and… Full review

Hyke & Byke Zion 2P

Hyke & Byke thought about the little things with this tent. I find it to be an amazing value for the price. It comes with lightweight ground cover, which has grommets for the tent poles. This allows for a lightweight option, but more importantly, the ability to erect this tent in the rain. This is a single pole tent system. I love this tent for many reasons. Perhaps most of all due to the price, and the amount of space I have. It feels like camping in a condo. The price is amazing! Almost too… Full review

Big Agnes Big House 6

Excellent tent, no complaints at all. Took it to the UK in my luggage, first camping trip was at the International Mini Meet, 40mph winds and heavy rain. Over 500 tents were lost due to the wind but the Big Agnes 6 stood like a champ. The only issue was a little water that got past the rain fly and through the mesh presumably from the driving rain. It was a very small amount. The tent took less than 10 mins to set up the first time. We bought the optional groundsheet, which worked great. When set… Full review

Sierra Designs Asp 3

The tent fly taping came unglued while I had it stored in my equip. locker—dry and no warmer then 95 deg.f. The company wouldn't honor their warranty, saying that if they attempt to repair the taping it would burn the seams. I'm paraphrasing what I was told. My wife and I used the tent a total of six nights on different occasions. We never had it in inclement weather so we can't judge it's ability to keep the interior dry. I thought it was a very comfortable set up, but since I can't get the fly… Full review
