Closeouts. Made with durable, ultralight materials and fully taped and welded for extreme weather protection, Mountain Hardwear's LightWedge 3 tent is a lightweight backcountry tent that works well in three seasons.

Tent received was different than the one pictured. It has a plastic hub permanently attaching the two poles. The brow pole has a wierd sleeve on it and attachments are less secure than the ones illustrated.
Another reveiwer told me theirs came just like the pic so I ordered a 2nd one hoping mine would as well but alas, same issues so it's going back.
I doubt STP will post this negative review. That's fine. But PLEASE fix the picture to match what you are shipping.

Nice tent but be aware that the width by the door is wider than the back of the tent which is 52 inches. It wouldn't fit a queen air mattress so I exchanged it for the Marmot Ajax 3. Would recommend the Marmot over this one partly because it didn't seem to have very good air flow. There is only one door and no window.

I love this tent.
I have the Skyledge and it is a bit small for me, but really light. I am 6' 8" and I only use it when I am going long distances. This Lightwedge is a few pounds heavier than the Skyledge, but worth the weight. A ton of room and the extra storage space above the door is really nice. A few things I would change are: wish it came with a footprint so I would not have to make one. Dropping some weight is pretty easy since the basic pegs are pretty heavy.

I bought this to backpack with my kids. It fits the 3 of us very well. It is crazy light. Set up is very simple with the fixed center piece. You cannot mix up the poles. My kids 9 and 11, set it up in 5 minutes. We have used it only about 12 night so far, on backpacking and rafting trips, but it has performed very well.

We bought this tent 2 seasons ago (for a fabulous price at STP) and just returned from another successful camping trip using the Lightwedge. We highly recommend it. For us, it comfortably held 2 adults (6'2" and 5'9") with an air mattress and it kept us comfortable and dry after days of pouring rain on our last trip. We find it well designed - easy to put up and take down. We enjoy using it in good weather without the rain fly so we can see the stars at night.
We were considering upgrading to a larger Mountain Hardwear tent but we like this one so much that we have put that off for now.
It did not come with the footprint, which we had to purchase separately, but we are glad we did. We highly recommend this product. Thanks STP!
