View Full Version : Wedding Registry Tent

12-28-2014, 01:57
I figured you all could help. I am registering for my wedding and was able to convince the future-wife we should register for a new tent for our long weekends. Normally I'd go the cottage route but for technical registry related purposes it requires being from a major retailer. Right now we have a 10 year old 5.5 lb 3 person 3 season sierra designs tent serving that role so something a bit lighter and newer would be nice.

I am looking for suggestions on reasonably light but by no means super-ultra light with 2 doors, and good privacy. Price doesn't particularly matter but we don't want to waste a super expensive gift from someone kind enough to give it on a mediocre tent.

Six Moon Designs has the Lunar Duo and the Haven 2-person and 2-doors tents.

Two doors are good for cross-ventilation and for convenience. It also offers two little "vestibule" areas for gear.

Nemo Meta 2P. Has two doors, plenty of head room and very large vestibules at either door. just under 3lbs. and uses trekking poles for setup.

What sort of major retailers? Would REI count?

There's the REI Quarter Dome 3 -- http://m.rei.com/product/862425/rei-quarter-dome-3-tent
It is lighter than what you already have with two doors and not high priced.
