The Seedhouse is one of the year's standouts in a smart class of tents: They're technically big enough for three but so light they should rightfully be considered two-person shelters. Consider: It's six feet wide at the hips and nearly four feet talland still has double-wall protection that kept the rain and snow off us during a sopping weekend on Mount Rainier. A hubbed pole makes the tent superstable for its weight, and the all-mesh canopy is ideal for top-down stargazing. 4 lbs; www.bigagnes.comBonus: Three internal mesh pockets and external guy-out points.Bummer: Just one door and a smallish vestibule.
