    Tent Recommendations

    Hello All,

    Looking for a two person pack tent. Something that I can carry into the back country and set up a spike camp. Ideally would have a vestibule in order to keep gear out of the elements. Any recommendations and reasoning why is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    BK

    Welcome BK. there are a ton of threads on this. Do a quick search and you will be over-whelmed with ideas. :-)
    I like the BA tents. Lights and durable. Watch REI for a sale on Labor Day.

    +1 on the BA tents. Here is a link for tent reviews that I started last year.

    I ended up going with the BA Copper Spur 2P for just me. If you want it for 2 people I would go to a 3P size for most all light weight pack tents regardless of the make and model.

    What is your budget? Do you have to have a floor?

    I picked up a Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 Mtnglo a couple days ago, I think it is going to fit the bill well compared to my old set up.

    Sorry if I sound naive or ignorant here, but are you talking about a floor price? I expect to spend between $300-$400. Can I get a decent long lasting product for this price point?

    floorless shelter, and yes you can find a good tent in that price range. I like northface,. Scotts saying, I'm assuming, that floorless shelters are cheaper, easier to pack and easy to set up. what time of season do you plan on going?

    Bingo, 300-400 can get you a very good tent. Probably even a top notch brand if you went the used route.
