  • Summary: I and my backpacking buddy both purchased the Lighthouse tents on sale so the price was right. We have had them for five years now and have literally beat the crap out of them. Only minimal condensation around the polls where they cross at the top. Light weight, roomy, easy to set up once you get used to them. Seriously, we have had them out in every kind of weather imaginable. Rain, snow, ice, dry hot summers, high winds and both tents are still going strong.

  • Summary: Have used this as mostly a solo tent for 3-season trips for over four years here in the Pacific Northwest's Cascades and Olympics, and it's still going strong. Light weight, ease of setup, free-standing, and its big wall-wide door. The later can also be a downside when using for two. No to very minor condensation under average conditions. Keeps bugs out well.

  • Summary: I think this is the best single-wall lightweight tent on the market. Condensation is kept to a minimum due to the Epic material and the venting design. I too wish I didn't have to seam seal it, but I did and I got to know my tent pretty well doing so. I'm a big guy and the tent is a great size. I bought the vestibule but have not used it yet. I always seem to leave it behind in favor of the lower weight.

  • Summary: The Lighthouse tent is very fast and easy to set up. One of the greatest values around. After a long hike it only took a minute or two setting it up in the dark. Very roomy inside and good at sealing out the weather. I look forward to a lot of trips in the future with this tent.

  • Summary: Over the past 15 years of backpacking in the Sierras, Anza-Borrego desert, and the canyons of Utah and Arizona, I've owned many tents (single and double wall) and none of them met all my criteria for an optimal tent: spacious but lightweight, simple and quick to set-up, minimal noise in wind, little or no condensation, side door to facilitate entry/exit, a good view in decent weather, and high enough to change clothes comfortably.

  • Summary: I am writing this review after using this tent many times over the last three months. I got it and the vestibule on sale. I've rated the tent with four stars because I haven't yet had it out in really nasty weather. Yes, it's been in the rain and the wind but I have not weathered a really bad storm inside it. So far it is the perfect tent for me and my trips. I am also confident that it will handle the tough weather just fine.

  • Summary: Just received my new Lighthouse in the mail and finished setting it up in the garage. I then promptly took it down, packed it up, and shipped it back for an exchange. Here's how I started... 1. I plan to use a tent for motorcycle camping (so weight isn't too much of an issue. 2. I researched on the internet...heavily and found no objective reviews.
