Thanks to its mostly mesh canopy, the double-door Adobe received high marks for warm-weather stargazing and ventilation. But what really impressed us was its performance in an early-season Wasatch snowstorm. The full-coverage fly kept pelting snow from drifting through the mesh, while the tent’s unique pole structure—a pair of sturdy antennae springing from each of its two end hubs—kept it as unflappable as Trump’s hairdo. It’s not quite as roomy as the Big Agnes (opposite), but it’s simpler to set up and much more stable. Two minor complaints: Snow and rain fell into the tent body when we exited the vestibules, and you’re out of luck if you break the proprietary pole-anchoring system. 5.5 lbs; marmot.com
