The Trail Ridge is back and better than ever for 2016. With a long footprint, night light pockets, and the Stargazing Fly, the Trail Ridge is more like a palace than a tent. What hasn't changed is the livable space within the Trail Ridge. Near-vertical walls provide more chill space, while dual-doors offers convenient entry/exit without having to climb over your backpacking partner. Two vestibules provide convenient gear storage protected from the elements. The backpack-friendly compact folding poles and roll-top cube carry bag are sure to make this your favorite backpacking tent.

  1. Best Tent I've owned.

    Bought this for myself, wife and baby boy. Fits us great with lots of room for extras. Very smart design and well made. Love it! on Jul 6th 2018

  2. Pretty good - needs small improvements

    This tent was easy to set up in terms of the poles and color-coding, except that the color-code on one corner was sewn wrong. I love the space inside, the fly is easy enough to adjust, but not bomber proof. I didn't really care for the plastic beaded ends as attachment points to the stake loops, they will break soon. I think the instructions were garbage. I really wish there were better pictures and fewer words. My biggest complaint though is the hooks on the underside of the fly attaching to the cross/head pole. Attaching these was a pain, especially because the instructions didn't tell you which way they should lay. I also would include metal instead of the plastics beads. But overall can't complain. Loved the easy snaps on the poles. on Jun 29th 2018

  3. Solid

    This tent was purchased with the intention of being a versatile, do-anything tent that could accommodate 2-3 people and I believe it achieves that function very well.

    At 6-7 lbs, it's not exactly a tent you would want to carry by yourself, but split between two or three, it would make a great backpacking tent. The packed size is small enough that it is also a great option if you need to pare down on space in the car as well.

    The space inside is enough that I would probably be comfortable squeezing three good friends in here but two is very comfortable.

  4. Get one!

    This is a solid tent. By far the easiest to set up. If you’re not familiar with setting up tents there are great videos explain how to set up the trail ridge series. Girlfriend and I had it up in about 5 minutes. Love this tent so far, pockets inside tent are awesome for storing our electronics, lights etc. highly recommend this tent. on Jun 14th 2018

  5. Great Tent

    This is the perfect size for two normal grown adults. Used this tent on a kayak adventure and it held up great. 35mph winds were no problem. on Apr 23rd 2018

  6. Perfect

    This is a quality tent that was exactly what I was looking for. Plenty of space inside for two adults and all our gear. It was was also incredibly easy to set up. I would highly recommend! on Mar 20th 2018

  7. Great tent, terrible instructions

    Easy to set up. The instructions might as well not be included because they aren’t complete and don’t make the most sense. The tent, however, is very nice. Sets up quickly and easily. Very common sense set up and tear down. Warm for cooler nights, but can also vent for warmer nights where you want some breeze. Just enough bells and whistles to make this tent cool and useful. I would buy it again :) on Nov 12th 2017



  9. Easy to set up! Sturdy

    I'm a huge fan of this tent. I bought it last summer for me and my fiancee--it's perfect. We can fit our double sleeping bag inside along with our backpacks. The vestibles are perfect for storing our storage bins and chairs to protect them from early morning dew. It is super easy to set up; even in the dark! I love the stargazing options that it provides as well. on Aug 25th 2017

  10. Great Tent

    The color coding, for set up is very nice. It was helpful having the video to refer to for first time setup though. I look forward to using this tent for many years. on Sep 17th 2016
