There’s so much usable room in this Slumberjack tent, you’ll be tempted to stay out longer. Exactly the point as this model puts enough space between you and the ground (as in, interior height) and the campers using it to warrant the packed weight of 19lbs. Even off the back of a pack horse, four-wheeler or boat, it’s within the weight range to tote in a mile or two. Far enough to let the rugged wall and floor material land in a favorite spot, and include the under-$50 footprint if more abrasion and moisture resistance is needed. Couples, kids, friends and even in-laws find their happy place in the tunnel tent design, one Active Junky rated as a Best Value. While only single wall, five windows and a mid-tent zipped door divider let you customize the interior layout without getting claustrophobic or building up body-generated moisture. The tester’s favorite feature? The under-ten-minutes setup that only requires one competent person. Along with someone to hold their favorite beverage.
