2-Person Tent Reviews

Easton Rimrock 2 Tent

This two-person palace offers the best livability of the bunch with the most floor space and headroom.

Brand: Easton

Model: Rimrock 2 Tent

Overall Score: 3.9 / 5



Specs

Weight

5lbs. 6oz.

Protection

4.8 Continuous 30-mph winds pummeled the Rimrock in Red Rock, Nevada, but it remained standing—while others (not in the test) fluttered wildly and even collapsed—thanks to eight guy-out points (the most in the test) and the most rigid pole structure.

Livability

4.9 “We easily fit a group of five guys inside (the floor is 35 square feet and headroom is 46 inches throughout most of the space) for a daylong game of poker,” raved one tester after a day of drenching rain in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia. Tradeoff: The Rimrock is the heaviest and bulkiest in the lineup.

Ventilation

2.0 With no vents and a full-coverage fly, condensation was a constant problem, even in a dry and windy environment like Moab.

Durability

4.7 “Before I could get the Rimrock staked, a strong gust blew it into a cactus,” one tester said after a windy trip in Arizona. No harm done, however. Our abrasion test corroborated the best-in-test durability.

Overall Score

3.9
