FOUR-SEASON CHAMPION

If you're looking for a lightweight shelter that can handle high winds and heavy snow, single-wall tents like the Valhalla are tough to beat. Thanks to an interior-pole structure, two testers were able to quickly and easily set up the Valhalla in 50-mph winter winds. To combat condensation (often a problem with single-walls), the Valhalla has two huge doorways and additional screened vents on each side of the tent, and it's cut from silicone-impregnated nylon and EPIC fabric, an expensive form of polyester that's breathable enough for the other three seasons: We experienced zero condensation, even on warm, windless nights in Southern California's Channel Islands. 5 lbs; golite.com
