The Covert 2 is one of the tallest two-person tents available, a nice feature if you want a little headroom, but not as aerodynamic as some lower-slung shelters on the market. Sierra Designs employs its own fabric tech in the fly to promote breathability while cutting wind and wet snow from outside. $460
