Great tent

Reviewed by Matt B. from Texas on Tuesday, January 14, 2014
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.
