Q. What’s the best tent I can buy for a good price?
— Josiah, Clarksburg, West Virginia
Getting a good deal without sacrificing quality is what’s most important, Josiah. And I’ve got just the right tent for you: The Alps Mountaineering Taurus AL 2 ($160, alpsmountaineering.com).
This two-man dome-style backpacking tent is a little on the heavy side — weighing more than 6 pounds — but it’s built with durable materials, including aluminum poles, a factory-sealed polyester fly and mesh roof vents.
