Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL1

rated 3 of 5 stars Warning: Doorway should have been designed with a ceiling overhang to prevent rain entering. Tent is ultra lightweight. Fly Creek is easy to assemble, holds up in the tundra in high winds, rain fly is highly storm resistant, materials are strong. Confined space does not allow a person over six feet to sit up. Ventilation is impossible due to small space. Entering or exiting during a rainstorm will allow rain to fill the interior floor due to lack of a high extension of the rain fly over the doorway.

Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL2

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought the two-person as it's only a few ounces more than the one-person and I needed room for my dog. My first trip I was a little nervous at the light weight, but it held up on several big rains and pretty confident now. My dog's nails did put a few tears in the floor, but fixed easy enough. I have also used on several wildland deployments and treat this lightweight tent a little more gentle. I skipped the overpriced footprint and made a Tyvex floor that can double as a small tarp when outside… Full review

Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL1

rated 4 of 5 stars A one-person, ultralight, three-season backpacking tent, the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL1 provides reasonable comfort and very good weather resistance for a packed weight of 2lb 1oz. I bought my Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL1 a little over a year ago, after doing a LOT of research. I’d set a goal of four pounds for my tent, sleeping pad, and sleeping bag, and the Fly Creek let me come in at about 1 ounce over. Close enough for me! I can easily shave that ounce by leaving stuff sacks at home.  A “semi-freestanding”… Full review

Marmot Halo 6P

rated 5 of 5 stars 30+ years camping, hunting, backpacking experience—favorite tent of all time. We have had this tent for several years now. We have had no issues with it whatsoever. We camp all over the place with this, and while it's far too bulky to carry in a backpack by one person, we do tend to backpack with this tent or ride in on horses/mules to camp with this tent more often than any other. The height in this tent is phenomenal. The fact that we can fit our family of five, hounds, and all our gear in here… Full review

Marmot Tungsten 2P

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Not the lightest, but durable and roomy. This is a good all round tent, but won’t suit those obsessed with weight or super-compact sizes. Easy to set up. Can be done in pouring rain by laying out the footprint and frame first, throw the fly over, then install the inner. Like all "2P" tents, it’s really suited to only one. Have had no issues with rain or dampness. Good for canoe camping, not great for ultralight hikes. Full review

Marmot EOS 1P

rated 5 of 5 stars Used the EOS 1P for 10 years of loaded bicycle touring and backpacking. I love my EOS 1P. I bought one 10 years ago for two reasons—weight and the length of the poles when they are folded. I use it for long solo bicycle touring so I wanted to be able to pack everything inside my panniers. After 14,000 miles of touring in all conditions I will purchase another one if this one ever wears out. So far the zippers and screens are perfect. The rainfly has a sticky feel from age but it still repels water. Full review

Eddie Bauer EB-30004.2

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Not a wet weather tent...at all!!!! I won this tent as a door prize at a work function 12 years ago (around 2006 or '07 maybe). I never used it much until my boys got to an age where they wanted to camp. So I’ve used it several times in the backyard in ideal conditions. Now, I’m on an across-the-country journey. The first few nights in Custer, S.D., I slept without the fly on and it was great...pretty moist inside by morning, but it was humid and hot during the day and was down to 50 at night,… Full review

The North Face Stormbreak 1

rated 4 of 5 stars Two pole 'X' design is stable in wind, reasonable light weight, rain-fly vestibule big enough for outside storage. I tried the MSR one-person tent, the NF Stormbreak 1 is better. Easy to set up, has color coded lanyards. Free standing. Cross pole design very stable in wind. Added longer tent stakes. Waterproof spray sealed the rain fly. Use a piece of Tyvek house wrap as a ground tarp...very lightweight and keeps water out (tyvek label faces the ground). I have had snowdrifts pile up outside, and… Full review

Gossamer Gear The One

rated 5 of 5 stars The One tent from Gossamer Gear met all of my expectations for a solo tent. I found it to be easy to set up, comfortable to be in, and lightweight. It has all the headroom and storage space I need, and I liked the open views and ventilation from the front. Gossamer Gear’s The One tent is a one-person tent that hits all of my requirements in one small package. I’m picky about one-person tents, more so than with a two-person tent. Most two-person tents I’ve tested inherently feel bigger and… Full review
