Not sure… check your signature link and read through that?

Welcome to the forum. Hope I can help.

To narrow down your choices:
1. How many people/dogs will be sleeping in it?
2. What is the maximum you would want it to weigh?
3. What is the maximum amount you are willing to spend?

There will be other questions after you answer those.

This is spam and not a real person. They have a link to sell tents in their signature, and created their account today.

Backpacker has a nice round-up on their best tents https://www.backpacker.com/gear/best-backpacking-tents/, should be a good place to start.

Personally, I'm using the Meteor Lite 2 by Sierra Designs for most of my summer backpacking adventures in Colorado. It's a nice light tent and sets up fairly easily. I have a Nemo Dragonfly as well but honestly, I don't use it as much as the Sierra Designs.

Yep. After I called them out, they removed it from signature and put it in their profile instead.
