Big Agnes Jack Rabbit SL4 -

Even if the kids aren't quite big enough to carry their own tent (or if putting them in there by themselves would only lead to chaos, screams, and tears), you can still go backpacking with the Big Agnes Jack Rabbit SL 4-Person 3-Seasons Tent, which has enough room for the whole family and is light enough that you can toss it on your back with ease. It's also a great car-camping tent for low-key weekend trips and the like.

A member of Big Agnes' Superlight series, the Jack Rabbit weighs in at just over six pounds, which is roughly the weight of a few extra water bottles. If you feel the need to shed more pounds or are camping in bug-free zones, you can also use the just fly and footprint (sold separately) to set up a simple shelter that's a pound and a half lighter. Of course, you'll probably want the four interior pockets, dual media pockets with headphone ports, and the mesh bug protection that the full tent offers, even if they do weigh a smidgen more.

The Jack Rabbit's fly has two full-size vestibules for stashing dirty boots and packs outside the doors, and also features zipper storm flaps and fully-taped seams so water doesn't worm its way into your cozy shelter. Set-up's a breeze, thanks to sturdy DAC aluminum poles and a hub attachment system that provides tons of headroom, while reflective guylines and webbing help prevent you tripping and bringing the tent down on the occupants like a punctured blimp, and a sash keeps the door open if you're relaxing in bug-free spots.
