I'm looking for a reasonably priced 4 season, 2 person tent.
Being a poor college student, I consider "reasonably priced" to be under or around $200. I've been checking online, and found a few options however I didn't know if there's something in particular that i'm overlooking. Weight is not the hugest issue for me right now. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Sometimes folks think they need a 4 season tent - if you are deliberately going out in winter a lot, where it snows and gets strong wind, you probably do. If you are camping on snow in decent weather, and only do so once in a while, a 3 season will get you by.
I would look at the Scarp - it's one of the lighter, less expensive 4 season options. Not suitable everywhere but a true double wall with the option of extra poles, and either a solid or net inner. If you could spring for both, it would be a true 4 season tent - net in summer, solid inner in winter to keep out spindrift, relatively stable all the way around.
Post where and when you think you will need the 4 season tent... bunch of winter campers on here can share what they think you would need for that.

You will not need a 4-season tent in the Grand Canyon any time of the year. You might have to deal with some snow in the winter months but seldom more than a few inches. Any quality three-season tent will serve you year around in the Grand Canyon and would be a bit of overkill between April and November.
