The Copper Spur HV UL series is designed with a high volume hub to maximize strength and increase living space without adding weight. Large dual zipper doors and steep wall architecture make backcountry trips with a smelly partner – or three – more comfortable than you may have thought possible. Our proprietary patterned double rip-stop nylon fabric is incredibly durable, to stand up to your biggest adventures.

Dragonfly fills the void for most backpackers with an ideal balance of weight and livability in a freestanding tent. The large trapezoidal vestibules are designed to fit gear without obstructing entry and have multiple roll-back points to customize visibility and coverage.

If you’re looking for an ultralight tent that doesn’t skimp on comfort, the Fly Creek HV UL is your dream come true; DAC Featherlite NFL pole system maximize livability without adding weight, while bomber materials hold up to any weather or terrain.  All of the weatherproof and technical features of a three-season tent, with ultralight materials to keep the Fly Creek your go-to, easy to set up shelter when you need to pack ultralight.

5/5

Hornet Elite is the ultralight tent of choice for extreme minimalists wanting the best in technical materials and design. Top shelf fabrics and a minimal pole structure shave every ounce possible, while our latest updates and new patent-pending Flybar volumizing clip adds even more room without adding any weight. At a mere 1 pound and 11 ounces, the premium technical, ultralight 2-Person shelter provides maximum livable space and large doors and vestibules. The 1-Person sheds a few more ounces to make its mark as one of the lightest, most advanced semi-freestanding tents in the NEMO line-up. Split the load with a partner using the unique Divvy dual-stage stuff sack to further lighten your pack.

4.5/5
The MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2-Person Lightweight Backpacking Tent is the quintessential 3-season backpacking tent. The freestanding design features pole geometry and a non-tapered floor that maximizes space with 29 square feet of floor area, and a peak interior height of 39 inches. Two generous vestibules provide an additional 8.75-square-feet on each side of the 2-door tent (total 17.5-square-feet) for gear storage. The adjustable, cross-ventilating rainfly features a kickstand vent, and rollup vestibule for stargazing. Setup is easy thanks to the unified hub-and-pole system, and color-coded clips.
4/5
After an epic day of backcountry shenanigans, you deserve a relaxing spread without the seedy feeling of low ceilings and tight space. Thats why our new, ultra-roomy Dirt Motel basically gives you everything but the neon sign. Compact and lightweight, the Dirt Motel features an ultra-spacious interior, plus a compact hubbed aluminum pole set for easy packing and lightning-fast setup. And the Kelty Stargazing Fly provides 100 billion reasons to stay up just a bit longer.
4/5
Ready to adventure with you mile after mile, the freestanding Tungsten 1-Person Tent blends durability, roominess and an intuitively livable design for the solo hiker. Its strategic clip placement offers more interior volume for stretching out after a long day on the mountain. If a sudden downpour approaches, the color-coded “easy pitch” clips and poles make for a quick set up, and the seam-taped catenary-cut floor and full-coverage vented fly add to its weather protection. The vestibule storage space, lampshade pocket that securely holds your headlamp, and included abrasion-resistant footprint round out the details that make life on the trail easier.
4/5
We embraced simplicity with the Limelight series: Quick to set-up and slight in weight, you can camp in style in this roomy home-away-from-home. The zone construction increases livable space, and a super-sized double door and rear D-shaped door lead to two side vestibules to keep all your gear dry in wet weather.
4/5
Dagger is the quintessential one-tent wonder: light enough for backpacking, yet roomy enough to comfortably wait out a rainstorm inside. Updated in 2019 with pre-bent poles to create more headroom, color-coded poles and webbing for intuitive set up, and several additional improvements to increase ventilation, convenience, and durability. With two doors and two massive trapezoidal vestibules, Dagger has more area and volume for storage than any other tent in its category. It also has the unique Divvy dual-stage stuff sack, which allows you to split the load with a partner.
4/5
The ALPS Mountaineering Lynx Tent is packed with high quality, top notch features. The Lynx, which has aluminum poles opposed to fiberglass poles, is very similar to our Taurus Tent series. The Lynx has more mesh than the Taurus, taking up half of the walls on each side allowing even more ventilation. The tent is an easy to set up, 2 pole rectangular dome style tent with pole clips that easily fit over the poles for quick assembly. ALPS has not cut any corners… between the factory sealed fly and floor seams, weatherproof fly buckles, 2 doors for easy entering and leaving, 2 vestibules for extra gear storage or weather protection, and extra-large #8 zippers, you’re sure to find everything you could want in a tent with our Lynx.
