Hilleberg Nammatj 2 http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/
Nammatj-2 winner of the 2013 Editor's Choice award. According to Gear Review Editor Max Neale,"The Nammatj is amazing. It's the most versitle tent we've ever tested. If we had to pick one two person tent for everything, this would be it. It's light enough to take on summer backpacking trips, comfortable enough for car camping and durable enough to scale tall peaks and cross polar regions."
