USER-FRIENDLY AND PACKED WITH FEATURES
How many cup holders does your tent have? The Electron RC comes with two spill-saving coffee slings, part of an accessory package that also includes a clip-on ground cloth and gear loft. Those throw-ins made the tent’s $260 price tag all the more amazing for a double-doored, two-person tent with so much living space (33 square feet). As with the Gear of the Year–winning Marmot Aura, the Electron RC’s lightweight poles are manufactured with fewer toxic chemicals, which, when you throw in PVC-free seam tape and a dye-free canopy, makes this the earth-friendliest tent here. And thanks to the single-hub design, you can pitch it in less than a minute. 5.4 lbs; sierradesigns.com
