In summer time, we use the Sierra Styles Orion AST3 (no longer created). We’ve created use of this tent for a decade and a half of canoe- tripping and it really is under no circumstances let in any water regardless of weathering some brutal storms. Sadly, it really is on the heavy side for backpacking as it really is a three-individual tent, but we use it mainly for canoe-tripping and we utilised to share it with our dog (pictured under).
In the shoulder seasons we use the Marmot Thor four-season tent. Once again, it really is not light simply because it really is intended to be in a position to hold up to a blizzard and heavily snow load, but we’ve utilised it backpacking in late winter/early spring when there was nonetheless snow. It really is really strong and vents moisture very nicely, which is what you want in a four-season tent.
In winter, my shelter of selection is an igloo, so as an alternative of packing our four-season tent, I carry the Icebox Igloo tool for developing vibrant, warm, roomy igloos. The tool is a slip type that packs up flat. It really is the black & yellow object subsequent to me in the photo under.
Hope this aids,
