  • Now is the summer of our discount tents

    While I could probably sleep in the Heep, I'd rather use it for gear storage if I go somewhere. I'm looking for recommendations for a 2-person tent, doesn't have to be ultralight. Is $200 a doable budget?

    I've put my Kelty Trail Ridge 3 to a ton of use the past 3 years and it has held up extremely well. I love how quickly it is to assemble and the small size it packs up to. It has held up to some serious thunderstorms without leaking...40mph winds..And even a couple inches of snow. A queen sized air mattress fits perfectly (with little room to spare). I got mine for ~$170 but they are now $250 on Amazon. Great reviews everywhere I've read.

    The Trail Ridge 2 is $220 and built a bit different from mine. I haven't read up on it though.

      REI has a 4 person tent in their Outlet for $205 right now: https://www.rei.com/product/895578/rei-incamp-4-tent

      This one is probably more suitable for you - only $200: https://www.rei.com/product/893998/rei-camp-dome-4

      They also have a Kelty for $150.

            Is she not a camper? Or just no opportunity?

            I mean, to be fair, you've been busy travelling the world and getting hitched and shit.

              She is not a camper. I'd need to ease into it, glamping style.

              Though, honestly as long as she has an air mattress in the tent, and a brick and mortar restrooms/shower once per day I think she'd play along.

                If you're car camping, look into folding cots as well. Far more comfortable than an air mattress.

                OTOH, they do not hold up to vigorous fucking.

                In my experience, neither do air mattresses, though.

                  I sleep better on an air mattress than a cot. In my experience, air mattresses have a limited lifespan though. I got ~3 years of camping out of my last one.

                    She would do well with the SO and I on our annual trip.

                      Call Nemo and ask if they're going to do a sales sample sale again. I got my Dagger 3p for $250. I fucking love that tent.

                      It was July last year IIRC.
