  • Excerpt: If low weight is your prime tent priority, put this shelter at the top of your shopping list. It’s barely more than four pounds, but makes no compromises in terms of protection. When 30-mph winds in Colorado’s Park Range blasted the Skyledge with rain, this freestanding dome barely shuddered—and...

  • Summary: This is a great lightweight tent, with two doors and two vestibules. It is a little delicate and the zippers can stick, especially in colder-wetter conditions... but it did keep us dry!
  • Pros: Lightweight, 2 doors
  • Cons: Delicate, Zipper can stick

  • Summary: Big room in a small package! Finally, a lightweight tent that is redhead proof, bomb proof, and can withstand the unpredictable weather and wind of the Northwest. Color coded pole tips and rain fly clips make setting up a snap. Two doors and vestibules make for quick in's and outs.
  • Pros: Light weight, Bomb proof
  • Cons: No loft, but has 2 mesh pockets in front corners

  • Excerpt: This dome isn’t the lightest in its class—the freestanding Burn Ridge weighs four pounds more than ultralight options—but it costs half as much, making this two-door, four-person shelter a fantastic buy for families seeking an affordable backcountry shelter.

  • Excerpt: After test-driving the BA Fly Creek UL2, and not being satisfied that it was sufficiently free-standing, I tried the Copper Spur UL2 and was favorably impressed. My first use was on a 4-day traverse in the Olympics, which contrary to the stereotype, did not allow me to test in in wet or otherwise...

  • Excerpt: Unbelievably I was setting this tent up in the store and the main pole SNAPPED! No undue pressure - wasn't forcing it or anything..the MAIN tent skeleton, just snapped. Had to be a defect, but at $400 I am so glad it happened in the store and not 3 days from anywhere. Buyer Beware!
