Mountain Equipment Dragonfly

This two-person tent from Mountain Equipment is as easy to pitch as any you’ll find, taking less than 10 minutes to erect. It’s big, but also very light, so is perfect for summer backpacking. The double-door design is great for keeping the wind out. Perhaps a little narrow at the foot for longer trips.

Verdict: Light, compact and really easy to put up.
