When there are just the two of you going camping and hiking out in the wild a good tent is a must have. Think about it for a second, most of the time you will be trekking about in the mud and wet or dust and arid landscape so when it comes to bed time you want to at least have something you can rely on.  A good tent doesn’t have to weigh a lot, nor cost a small fortune, but invest wisely and you will have many a happy night camping out in the wild.

MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2 Person Tent

First up is the NX from MSR.  

The original version of this tent hit the market a few years back and has pretty much topped the best sellers list since day one.  

It is extremely light by design but has all the room a couple could need in a tent.

It was originally designed for backpackers and people who like to travel light. Weighing in at just shy of four pounds this tent is great when you are on the move. It packs up really well and fits nicely into most decent backpacks.

This is an easy to assemble tent and comes with all the features you expect from a brand like MSR.

Ultra Light Weight at 3 pound 7 ounces
Symmetrical pole geometry for more space and easy to set up free standing hub system complete with DAC featherlight poles.
2 large vestibules for gear storage – one each side of tent
Multitude of air vents to reduce condensation and increase air flow even when its raining.
Colour coded tabs on the rainfly to allow for quick simplistic setup

The MSR takes out top spot for a quality durable and lightweight two person tent that you should take with you on your next camping adventure.

Mountainsmith Morrison 2 Person 3 Season Tent

Guided by over thirty years of outdoor experience Mountainsmith has designed an award winning two person tent that is exceptional value for money.

This really is a great offering and comes with a raft of features even to the point of printing the setup instructions on the tent bag.

A brilliant yet cost effect tent suitable for any weather and every camping occasion.

A good all rounder two person tent full of features.  Some of the things we liked about this were the handy overhead storage areas, the footprint and the taped seams. Works great in the rain so no need to worry about getting wet.

Coleman Sundome 2-Person Tent

If you are a weekend car camper or love camping out in the wild during the summer the you can’t go wrong with the Coleman Sundome.

These tents are designed to be very easy to setup on your own because they use a continuous pole and sleeve/pin and ring system.

They are suitable if it does rain because of the WeatherTec system included in the design.

The best thing about this tent is the price.  We cannot find anything else this good for the same money.

We loved the adjustable Variflo airflow ventilation system – a feature you would normally see in a much more expensive tent and at 48 inches in height you have plenty of room to move about when inside.

WeatherTec System to keep you dry
Durable carry bag with separate storage bags for tents, poles, and stakes
Exceptional Price
Easy two-pole set-up with shock-corded poles
Pin and ring design with InstaClip attachments
Dome structure is easy to transport and simple to set up
Interior gear pocket and electrical access panel
Very easy to set up

The Coleman Sundome is by far the best value tent we can find given the long list of features and the outstanding price point.  A great all rounder that wont break the bank.
