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

Hilleberg Enan

rated 4 of 5 stars Replaces my bivy sack. I will not give a detailed review because an excellent detailed review (by Mike Gartman) has already been posted. I just want to add some not so obvious additional points. The first time I set this tent up I had some bad tent breathing motion of the outer relative to the inner, so they would touch in strong wind gusts. When I got the tent home I realized that on the two triangular head and foot sections of the tent there are a total of four loops that could have additional… Full review

Eureka! Mountain Pass 2XT

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent. My wife and I used this tent for 199 days on the Appalachian Trail.  Eureka tents are the best. I've been camping in Eureka tents for nearly 40 years. Full review

Kelty Grand Mesa 2

rated 5 of 5 stars After researching 2-3 man tents for a while I stumbled across the Grand Mesa 2. I found it at Academy Sports. It was on sale for $68. I'm guessing it was a returned item. All of the other lightweight tents I have been looking at were between $300-$500. So I thought I would give it a shot. I haven't used it yet, only setting it up in my hotel room before heading offshore for two weeks. It was real simple to set up. Seemed sturdy and has ample room for myself, 6'1" 225 lb. There is also enough room… Full review

REI Half Dome 1 Plus Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars I got the 2018 version of this tent for Christmas. And have spent 10 nights in it so far. It is a well made three-season tent, with a lot of space for a solo tent. The plus stands for more room. The new version of this tent now has a DAC pole hub and a reconfigured vestibule. The tear drop door opens wide and there is a pocket in the ceiling to stash the door out of your way for great access to the inside of the tent. There is a pocket each side of the door and two ceiling pockets for organization. Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Camp Creek 4-Person

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I can walk in and out without bending (5'7"). Easy to set up by one person if you don't get flustered. Easy up. Easily repacked. Door width and height. Don't have to step up way up and over the door jamb. I have not used this particular tent yet, but can't wait. I plan on miles with it this coming spring/summer/fall and will definitely confirm the usability and comfort of this tent. Full review

REI Quarter Dome 3 UL

rated 4 of 5 stars The Quarter Dome 3 offers headroom, steep walls, and enough space for three at a reasonable weight for one. The double doors, easy draws, and water tight seal make me a satisfied customer. It makes a really nice 2P, with extra room alternative, at 5lb 8oz. 2007 model Setup: The tent is cross pole design. There are only two pole end grommets since two of the four corners have reinforced webbing that the pole ends slip into. The poles have to be inserted through sleeves that run ¾ length of the tent. Full review

NEMO Hornet Elite 1P

rated 5 of 5 stars This is well designed, extremely lightweight, and packable one-person tent. I have backpacked Coast Range of British Columbia and in the Olgivie /Tombstone mountains in the Yukon. It performed very well in rain, snow, windy, and wet conditions. It sets up fast and provides superb shelter. I am 5'3" and found it had good space and headroom. The light weight is awesome, and it's extremely packable. I barely felt its presence in my pack. It sets up quickly and tautly with an easy and intuitive use. Full review
