10 Best 4 Season Backpacking Tents

This is a living list of the 10 best 4 season backpacking tents. I hope it will grow and change over time as new tents and technology become available.

Black Diamond Tempest

The unique asymmetric 4-season design of the Black Diamond Tempest optimizes space for 2 people in harsh weather. Two large doors and two vestibules make it easy to get in and out of the tent, and weatherproof top vents help with airflow. A strong, simple expedition tent for those who want a little more headroom.

MSR Dragontail

Engineered with superior space and ventilation, the Dragontail single-wall expedition tent excels where others fail. Its cavernous, hooped design is upgraded with a weather- shedding, peaked center and easy-pitching pole clips. Plus, an overhead vent – now with zippered closures – runs the length of the expedition tent, providing the ventilation that's critical to single-wall performance. The seam-taped silnylon packs small offering compact protection that alpine ascents, ski tours and minimalist, 4-season adventures demand.

Snow Peak Lago 2

The Lago is an ultra-light 4-Season mountaineering tent uniquely designed using a hybrid of single and double walled construction. Using a simple X-Frame structure gives the tent great stability in extreme conditions while saving weight. The Lago features a truly innovative interior vestibule that saves weight and allows you to quickly escape the outside elements and store extra gear. Using durable materials such as Mini-Ripstop 20D Polyester and Duralumin poles you get a lightweight yet durable tent you have come to expect from Snow Peak.

The North Face VE 25

A perennial favorite with core mountaineers, the VE 25 is a relentless, three-person tent for lodging in severe conditions. This stellar expedition tent utilizes reinforced construction and multidirectional lift technology to ensure safety, warmth, and protection in the face of nature's worst.

The North Face Summit Series™ products represent the pinnacle of product technology, design innovation, and athlete testing. This collection is built without compromise and is designed to be the strongest and lightest gear available, for use in the harshest weather on the planet.
