This is a great tent. Mine is the older version which is simply a different color (blue). I purchased it in 2009, and it has been on a couple of trips to Canada, and one trip to Alaska being strapped to the back of a motorcycle. It is my go to tent for motorcycle trips! It has been in frog stranglin... Read More

    I was searching for a good light weight tent for backpacking that would last a LONG time, this fit the bill perfectly. 3 person (2 person+gear), good brand, good price. My brother and I were so excited to use this on our 30 mile trip. We went the 2nd week of Oct so the nights were what some would consider "chilly" So it was perfect conditions for condensation. Knowing this, I cracked the vestibule on the bottom expecting all the mesh to help the tent breath. Well with two mouth breathers we woke up to a rain forest in our tent, the next night I opened the top of the vestibule which did help but still a good amount of condensation. So after the trip I knew this was now a 1-2 season tent for me, or so I thought. I just got back from a trip down to Florida 70s in the day high 50s at night guess who still had condensation issues even with the upper portion of the vestibule open and only one mouth breather. So now I pretty much have a tent that I never want to use again, and am in the market again which I never thought I would say this soon.
    The overall quality of the tent is very high and the setup is fairly simple, so if you dont typically have issues with condensation this is the tent for you!

    I've only set this up in the house so I can only speak to the size, features and ease of setup. I had originally ordered a Mountain Hardwear Skyledge 3 which proved to be too short. I'm 6'-4" and my toes and forehead brushed against the fabric at the ends of the Skyledge 3. My search for something longer brought me to the LightWedge 3 and I'm much happier. Not only do I fit, but the LightWedge has some great features. The "shelves" over the door are great, as are the storage pockets by the feet. It's very easy to setup. I haven't tried the fly, but if it's anything like the Skyledge, it's a piece of cake. Like the Skyledge 3, I wouldn't consider the LightWedge 3 to be a 3 person tent. Plenty of room for 2 though. It is heavier than expected. I knew there was a pitch light option that came in at 4lb 7oz (fly, poles & footprint) and I kept seeing reference to a packed weight of 6lbs 5oz. I was surprised when my tent arrived and weighed in at 7lbs 2oz. It turns out many of the specs I was reading were for the tent WITHOUT footprint. So, if you plan on using the Mountain Hardwear footprint, plan for an extra 11.8 oz. Not a big deal if you can split up the load when hiking in a group. I'm just happy I found something relatively light that I fit in.

    Great tent! My wife and I got this tent and it has been great! I had a 2 man tent that worked well, but this 3 man has so much more room and packs down to the same size as my 3 man. It isn't much heaver either. The construction has held up well and out favorite feature is the tension shelf right above the door. Items are accessible from standing out side the door as well as inside, and there is plenty of room. Second favorite is the pack bag. It is over sized ( about twice as big as the tent rolled up) so the tent always goes in well with no trouble at all. I do wish it had compression straps so the bag didn't let the tent expand to fill the bag, but some home made straps did the trick.

    Nice lightweight 3 person 3 season tent, just like it says. It goes up quick and if split between two people it's more than reasonable for backpacking. It seems well made, the stitching is sound, as are the seams. It poured for two nights straight and thanks to the vestibule, the inside was dry as a bone. And the vestibule helped with that, wet gear need not come inside, at least not all the way.

    I am befuddled by the fly only set up though. The cross/support for the vestibule is supposed to attach to this nylon strap in lieu of the tent/mesh. The ends of the curved rod are ball bearings, and they are a great fit in the tent retainer clips. The nylon strap, however, has retainers that are too small to accommodate the ball bearing ends on the curved rod. You can see it in the photo as it curves over the door flap.

    I haven't seen anything that addresses this, so I am starting to think it's me. The bugs are usually out when I'm walking so I would most likely not need it, but you might.
