I am looking to buy an inexpensive 2-person tent. Does anyone know of any or have used any that you've liked?

I'ce had good luck with Mountain Hardware backpacking 3 season tents, but somebody has got to ask the standard tent questions:

-How many people: 1, 2, 3, family, army division

-When and where do you expect to use it most: summer back packing, mountaineering, etc. Do you need something to withstand strong winds and snow loads, or would you rather having something light and well ventilated? Single wall tents tent to not do as well in hot humid environments.

-How big are you? I'm only 5'6" so I can be more comfortable in a shorter and lower tent than a 6 footer would hate.

-Do you have any kind of price range in mind?

Take a look at the Eureka Wabakimi.

Great tent, plenty of room inside for 2 large people (6'3" tall) w/ an airpad, a door on each side and a large vestibule on each side.


$125 bucks
