7. BEST FOR BACKPACKING: Sierra Designs Meteor 3
The Meteor has everything we look for in a backpacking tent and more. Setup is simple, and with a 42-inch clearance, three guys can sit and play cards. There’s plenty of room in the two vestibules for packs and boots, and the fly rolls back for stargazing. More compelling: Similar tents that weigh the same (5.2 pounds) would cost at least $150 more.
