A solid base camp means more than a dry place to lay your head. Big Agnes took that to heart with the two-person Wyoming Trail 2 Camp tent, which boasts an outsize vestibule more spacious than the tent itself to keep your gear out of the weather. Bikes, surfboards, and large packs fit comfortably inside the garage-like space, and you can prop the vestibule door flap with trekking poles for a dry kitchen. Or hang some mosquito netting inside, and you’ve got a 5-person tent to accommodate your ill-prepared friends. ($350; bigagnes.com)
