    7' x 7'...it's big enough for people like myself camping solo like a reject

    I'd recommend a 7'x7' or 8x8 for two people. Whenever the tent says "three person tent, it really means three people who have sex with each other or just two platonic people.

    My tent is 9 x 9 ft. and 6 ft. tall in the middle... big enough for the 2 of us to sleep and change comfortably. It's a Eureka Sunrise 9. From what I read, Eureka makes quality wind resistant tents.

    And "2 person" tents are not big enough for 2 adults unless you want to sleep on top of each other and leave your belongings outside. I have a 7'x4' tent though that is a pretty good size for 1 person & gear and would leave a little room for other stuff (canopy/cover, chairs) in your campsite.

    I wanted to search Dick's Sporting Goods for tents because there is 6 inches of snow on the ground. Unfortunately, I put www.dicks.com instead of www.dickssportinggoods.com ...

    If you have $$$$ I suggest North Face...expensive, but really ultralight(Carry on), reliable and lasting. You'll not need a tent for the next 20 yrs. But if you don't have too much $$$ or you don't want to spend too much $$$ the guys here gave you a few really good options. Like Coleman.

    I was in need of a tent and being that Ill be using it for more than just Coachella.... I spent some dough. $119


    The Columbia Mt. Bachelor sleeps 3-4. It has great ventilation with windows and vents which combine to keep you comfortable and reduce condensation. With all the main fly and floor seams taped you can be assured of a dry tent. It is easy to set up with a fiberglass First-Up™ Frame that sets up in minutes by unfolding and locking in place. That means no threading sleeves and no clips. Sounds easy, it is. Extra features include a gear loft, storage pockets, sealed main fly and floor seams and a neat feature that lets you easily sweep debris and dirt from the tent.

    * Sleeps 3-4
    * Main fly and floor seams are factory taped for extreme weather protection.
    * Bathtub Floor raises seams high off ground and Rain Shingle protects seams
    * Polyester fly won't stretch and has better UV resistance
    * Shockcorded fiberglass poles are sturdy
    * Freestanding design is easy to set up
    * First-Up™ Frame uses a hub with connected poles for fast and easy set up every time
    * Quick release buckle system easily and quickly attaches fly
    * No see um mesh on all 4 windows provides ventilation and keeps the bugs out
    * 2 mesh interior pockets for organization and gear storage.
    * 1 large 'D' door for easy access.
    * Gear loft included
    * Woven Reflective zipper pull
    * Flashlight loop
    * Tent, pole and stake bags included.
    * Tent bag is expandable and has a handle for ease of packing
    * Fire retardant.
    * Import.

    I'm also from Chicago -- found the Coleman 7x7 sundome at the Sports Authority on Ontario for $25. It is plenty big enough for 2 people. It is large enough for our queen sized blow-up mattress, and still has a few feet left over on one side for a cooler and stuff.
    It has lots of windows which I hope will help with airflow.
