ALPS Mountaineering Morada 4 Tent: 4-Person 3-Season

The ALPS Mountaineering Morada 4 Tent: 4-Person 3-Season is a durable, comfortable, and easy-to-use tent that is well-suited for 3-4 people during camping trips. Despite not being the lightest weight and holding some moisture in hot weather, this is a good option for those who want a protective tent that feels roomy inside. Even though it doesn’t have the most square footage for a 4-person, the higher cross pole makes it seem like there’s more headroom, and makes leaving and entering the tent easy.

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL3 Tent: 3-Person 3-Season

The Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL3 Tent: 3-Person 3-Season is a spacious, weather-protective, and lightweight option that is best for two or three people on any type of outdoor trip. The lighter weight for being such a protective and roomy tent makes this a great option for backpackers. Despite the inner dimensions being a bit small for 3 people, the adjustability of using canopy-only mode, big vestibules, and tall height of the tent allows for a spacious feel, making this a good option for two or three travelers.

Tepui Awning

The Tepui Awning is an easily transportable cover that protects against light wind and sun, but has various negative reviews that raise questions about the durability of this product. Despite being easy to install and bring with you on trips, the reports of faulty products arriving, damaged pieces being shipped, and not coming with anything to attach the awning to your roof-rack unfortunately make this not a great option.

Big Agnes Big House Deluxe Tent: 4-Person 3-Season

The Big Agnes Big House Deluxe Tent (4-Person 3-Season) is a spacious shelter that feels luxurious when you are inside, with good headroom, lots of internal storage, and the option to add on many of Big Agnes’ signature extra features. This tent offers plenty of space for four people and gear, especially when the vestibule is added, but some of the design features don’t quite work, like the zipper-guards placed on the inside of the tent, allowing rain to seep through, and the lack of a fully mesh back door. Even so, this tent offers good ventilation and good protection from poor weather with its highly waterproof and quality fabric, and has a simple setup and a well-loved storage bag.

Mountain Hardwear Optic 3.5 Tent: 3-Person 3-Season

The Mountain Hardwear Optic 3.5 Tent: 3-Person 3-Season is a weather-resistant, functional, easy-to-set-up, and packable tent, that is best suited for 3 adults comfortably. The two doors on the one side mean you have to crawl over someone to get out, but they provide an expansive view. Despite the weight, the easy transportation, big vestibules, and ample storage space make this a great option for shorter backpacking trips.

Black Diamond Bipod Bivy

The Black Diamond Bipod Bivy is warm, sturdy, and very weatherproof, and you can feel secure when hunkering down in even the most unpleasant weather. Although the headspace in this bivy is generous because of the pole, the footpace can be a bit tight, especially when using highly insulated sleeping bags or pads, or when side sleeping. The Bipod is also not the most packable or lightest option on the market, although this could be because of its generous headspace and durability.
