Almost any company you buy outdoor gear from, including the manufacturer, contribute to groups like the Sierra Club or PEER.

True, only exception may be Nemo since the owner is an avid Overland guy and designed and manufactures the tents for the JK Habitat.

Or make your own using denatured alchol and a cat can stove. Prob the lightest option and will cost u less than $8.00.

anyone use or seen this tent in person?

Havn't seen it in person, but looking at the pics, it looks like the floor seams are on the edge of the floor and walls. Not good for rainy camping.

Look for a tent that has the seams on the wall, meaning the floor extends past the floor and crawls up the wall a few inches.

These look interesting. I would like to see how they do in high winds though - I'd be nervous since you don't have a solid support to resist the wind.

People seem to like the Nemo version of those. Although I worry about waking up to a collapsed tent.

Yea, it may be better to see in person. Hard to tell with the pics.

Kelty makes great tents, IMO. I have had many tents (Coleman, Hilary, Kelty), and the Kelty's are by far the best without spending over $1k.

I recently got the Kelty Hula House. Trippy design, but the hula hoop makes the walls vertical, which is surprisingly nice to be able to actually stand, and walk around a small 4-6 person tent.

Lurking around here for a bit now.
Anybody ever use Alps Mountaineering?
I have become a huge fan/consumer of their products. The tents simply can't be beat and I have bought and trashed just about every brand out there.
Just throwing that out there.

http://www.alpsmountaineering.com/alps/products/tents

imo, these are absolutely the best tent for the money.
For years with Other Brand tents I had to bring tarps to keep the thing dry in the rain. Not anymore.

I have two of their tents currently, The Taurus outfitter in a 2 man size, bought last season and very happy with it.
http://www.alpsmountaineering.com/al...r#.Uwewe_ldV8E

The other has been discontinued, it was the Alaskan model and has been used in a blizzard with 18" of snow for a week. The poles alone are 1" in dia. Dry as a bone and wind is not a problem at all. This tent is approaching 8 years in age and looks like new still.
The replacement for it is the same Taurus outfitter in the 5 man size.

I have used a few Kelty's, their not bad, best for backpacking imho.

Before I got the RTT I was a diehard Kelty fan. I still have my ground tent should I ever need it again. It's gotten a lot of use and still looks new. Plus I just liked their simple designs, made it very easy to set up /take down.

Joe how soon are you looking to buy?

Last March/April I got myself a real nice Kelty Gunnison Pro tent for ~$120 from Cabelas, normally they ran $300.. I'm guessing they were trying to move the previous year models fast. If you have some time I'd wait for what spring brings..
