    I have an REI Taj 3. I have it because someone gave me a gift certificate there, and I liked the mesh ceiling for nights when you don't need the rain fly. Which one is best depends what you're going to do with it.

    Don't believe everything you think.

    I had a small two person Columbia tent that I did a lot of backpacking with back in the mid 80's. It always smelled a little funny but not enough to justify buying a new one.

    More importantly...where do you store your tent?

    Did you put it away without letting it dry (from the morning dew or from rain) once? Mine started to smell a little mildewy after doing that, and it turns out you can ignore the part where it says "do not wash."

    I went camping with my girlfriend and bike once. The girl offered to sleep in the car so I could store the bike in the tent and make sure no one stole it. I was wise enough not to take her up on it...

    No.

    But sometimes you can get away with it. I laid a deflated raft over the bike at night. Most people in a campground probably aren't thieves, and came to enjoy nature, not to find a bike. On the other hand, a campground could be easy pickings if you wanted to take other peoples' things. Anyway, a tent large enough to keep your bike in is obviously going to be heavier than a smaller tent, and if you're thinking about a bike tour, weight might be important to you, because you'll have a lot of other stuff as well.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I have different tents and a hammock that I use. When I am touring, i us ea 2-3 person tent, (Coleman or Kelty) The Kelty is nicer but not any easier to construct in the dark. If I know there will be tree coverage where I am, I might just bring a hammock and a tarp to build a roof if needed. I use an ENO (Eagles Nest Outfitters) pro hammock and pro straps, but for either ENO or Hennessy you can purchase canopies for them. Tents are tricky, because shelter is necessity but not if the costs are greater than the benefits. (Needs to be light enough to not slow you down, easy enough erect and break down and quality enough not to leave you in a pool of water if it is damp out.

    Kelty, Marmot, Cabella's, Black Diamond. All good stuff.

    A double tent? Would that make you two tents?
