For instance, the list starts with the Kelty Grand Mesa 2, a two-person, three-season shelter that costs just $140. On the other end of the spectrum is MSR’s awesome Hubba Hubba NX, which retails for $400, but is built to survive in just about any conditions and weighs in at just 3 lbs., 7 oz.

Depending on your needs, you’ll discover some solid suggestions here, with tents to accommodate two adventurous souls or as many as six.
