Mountain Hardwear Trango 2

Can I use my three-season tent in the snow? Or should I cough up the money for a four-season model?

The two-person Trango 2 from Mountain Hardwear has the most generous features: two doors, two big vestibules, five sturdy poles, and a watertight construction that withstood 1,200 inches of rain in company tests. You pay for such comforts in a weight that tips the scales at more than three pounds heavier than the other tents in this lineup. $825

FLOOR AREA: 41 square feet
VESTIBULE AREA:  11 square feet
PEAK HEIGHT:  41 inches
POLES: 5 DAC Featherlight NSL
