  • 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.

  • Excerpt: For boat- and car-camping and short-mileage overnight hikes, our crew loved the comfort of this double-wall dome. “So much headroom, it’s like sleeping in an R.V.,” says one tester who enjoyed five unconfined nights in the Firefly while paddling Utah’s Green River.

  • Excerpt: Expensive, but... AWESOME. Extremely well thought-out tent, great for summer camping when it's warm (completely mesh sidewalls are awesome), still works well in the cold wind/rain/snow/apocalypse.
