Reviewed by Matt B. from Texas on Sunday, December 29, 2013I haven't taken this tent out backpacking yet but have checked ease of setup and confirmed dimensions. While very easy to setup, I will say the stated dimensions are a little off, or maybe misinterpreted on my part. The specs state that the floor of the tent measures 88"L x 58"W. With the tent laying flat on the floor and before clipping it to the poles, the floor on my tent measured 86"L x 57"W. Once I clipped the tent to the poles and the bathtub-style floor takes shape, I was left with a useable floor area of about 82"L x 52"W. Not bad, except all 4 members of my family are tall and have long sleeping bags between 82" and 86" in length. I'm 6'4" tall and when laying on top of my sleeping bag, my forehead and toes just barely touch the sidewalls at each end of the tent. I'm a little worried that once I'm actually in the bag, the head and foot ends of the bags will get wet due to condensation.
Even going off the manufacturer's generous dimensions, I knew this wasn't a 3-person tent as advertised, but you can clearly see that once the tent is up and you're left with a 52" useable width, there is no way you are going to fit (3) 20" wide sleeping pads in this tent, let alone the 25" wide pads that I prefer. This tent is sized like most other 2-person tents and should be labeled as such.
Because of our height, we were also looking for a tent that offered sufficient headroom. The specs for this tent call for a "45" peak height". I mistakenly took this to mean head clearance inside the tent, but I'm pretty sure it's the measurement to the exterior peak. I can still sit up in the center of the tent just fine with an extra 4-5" to spare, but the head clearance inside the tent is actually 43". Just thought I'd clarify that since the interior clearance seems more important than the outside dimension.
I haven't been able to confirm the weights of the various components, but I'm hoping those specs are a little more accurate than the others. Overall, I'm happy with the tent but might need to return it due to the length.
Reviewed by Bill from vermont on Wednesday, October 16, 2013This tent withstood the most severe lightning storm with very strong winds in the Adirondacs this summer.
Reviewed by Will from central america on Wednesday, March 27, 2013This is a fantastic tent for two. All the room in the world. Three's a crowd. Super tight, dry, and with weight comparable to all but the lightest 2 person backpackers. Only complaint I have is the poles fold up to 21", making them just a few inches long to roll up with the tent and strap to my pack. It's not too big of a deal though, as I just strap them vertically to the side of the pack. Highly recommended, and a great price to boot.
Reviewed by Steve from Alaska on Friday, March 15, 2013Haven't used the tent yet but took it out of the box and set it up - looks sturdy and easy to set up. Should do well on a sheep hunt....
Question & Answer
Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.
“The weight doesn't quite look right in the specs. In researching this tent on other sites, all said this tent is just over 4 lbs, not the 6+ lbs listed in the specs. Am I missing something?”
The higher weight is including the tent and all additional items included with it.
“Can anyone explain the difference between this tent and the MH LightWedge 3 3-Person, 3-Season tent (link at the bottom of the question)? They're very close to one another in weight, and the LightWedge has additional floorspace, plus a more spacious vestibule. I'm struggling to understand why this tent is so much more expensive. I must be missing something.”
