Gear Review: REI Quarter Dome 3

This three-season dome saves weight and money. Bonus: Organizers will love it.

Gear Review: Brooks-Range Tension 40

It's one of the lightest three-person tents we've used, yet it has two doors and headroom.

Gear Review: Marmot Stormlight 3

It's strong enough to handle wintry conditions, but light enough to carry all year.

Gear Review: Big Agnes Slater UL3+

Amazing features for the weight: Even tall folks can stretch out in this 96-inch-long dome (the longest in our test), and the giant vestibule offers welcome shelter in prolonged storms.

Gear Review: Mountain Hardwear Tangent 2

Alpine storms can't shake this four-season shelter. It's no ultralight, but the strength-to-weight ratio is hard to beat.

Gear Review: REI Dash 2

It's the perfect shelter for couples who want a superlight tent with traditional freestanding, two-door performance.

Gear Review : Sierra Designs Flashlight 2 UL

An unconventional design delivers comfort and protection for even the tallest campers-with no weight penalty.

Gear Review: NEMO Galaxi 2P

This three-season all-arounder offers a smart balance of interior comforts, reasonable weight, and affordable price.

Gear Review: Easton Mountain Products Kilo Carbon 2P

This freestanding, double-walled featherweight pitches fast, packs tiny, and withstands the worst three-season storms.

Gear Review: Big Agnes Super Scout UL2

This non-freestanding shelter blends the best features of tents and tarps, offering bug protection and a ballroom-size vestibule for about a pound per person.
