Ordinarily $300, this REI Co-op Grand Hut 4 Tent is a great deal at just $225. It has a sleeping capacity of up to four people with two doors to help you access the tent easily. A stable, free-standing design features a single tubbed-pole assembly and pole clips so it’s straightforward to assemble with ample headroom and near-vertical walls for extra comfort. Multiple pockets mean it’s great for storing things within and a packaged weight of just over 14 pounds means you won’t struggle at any point.

NEMO Hornet 2-Person Tent — $277, was $370

If a lightweight experience for you and your buddy is everything then the NEMO Hornet 2 Tent is what you need. It only weighs just over 2 pounds and its setup is super fast. There’s only room here for two people to share the tent but that’s fine for those times when you simply need somewhere to rest. The tent has 10-denier ripstop nylon fabric that’s durable while providing privacy and you can even place your headlamp in a special overhead sleeve for added convenience. It’s great for a snug but lightweight fit.

NEMO Dagger 2-Person Tent — $322, was $430

Considered a one-tent wonder, the NEMO Dagger 2 Tent only weighs just under 4 pounds but offers everything you and one other person could need. It has two large doors for easy access along with two massive trapezoidal vestibules for storage space. Integrated 15-denier nylon and white no-see-um mesh sidewalls give you great airflow and temperature control while a black mesh top means you can stargaze too. Like with other NEMO tents, there’s a light pocket overhead for placing a light for added convenience along with plenty of pockets for storing personal items. It’s all neatly constructed while remaining compact.

NEMO Wagontop 6-Person Tent — $487, was $650

Designed to offer a luxurious experience for up to six people, the NEMO Wagontop 6 Tent provides generous interior space and room so you can stand up and stretch.

There’s only one door but it’s large so you won’t have a problem here. Self-contained pole hubs mean it’s a stable set up too so your tent will survive some of the harshest camping you may experience.
