Ground Ajanta 2 – Camping Tents: Reviews

Apparel manufacturer Ground has hit the tent on-ramp at full speed. The Ajanta, its first three-season tent, is an impressive debut. An intuitive, hubbed pole architecture makes it easy to set up, while such details as arched vents on the fly kept condensation to a minimum, even on a muggy weekend in the Pacific Northwest. Nearly vertical walls make the most of the 30-square- foot interior—which was just big enough for two tall testers and a dog. Considering it has dual doors and two decent-size vestibules, this tent squeezes a remarkable amount of space into less than five and a half pounds. Our only gripe? The fly's drab green color, which casts a rather sickly hue over the interior. 5.4 lbs; groundwear.com
