Ferrino Snowbound 3 Tent - 3-Person, 4-Season
Closeouts. Designed for high-altitude camping and cold weather mountaineering, Ferrino's Snowbound 3 tent can handle serious winds and cold temperatures. It features durable, water-repellent tent and fly sheet fabric, extra-strong T6 duraluminum alloy poles, and two gear vestibules.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Chad from New York on Wednesday, January 18, 2017Set up. Went up as expected. Quality looks to be good. Haven't field tested yet. Will update in a couple weeks after a couple weekends of winter camping.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Petaluma Doug from California on Sunday, October 23, 2016This tent is very well made but difficult to set up as noted by other reviewers. I would hope after being set up for a while that over time it will streach and find its shape easier instead of fighting as one sets it up. IT would be very, very difficult to set up in a stormy situation!
It weighs a ton! Hope you are strong if you are going to carry this very far.
If you are familiar with four season tents you will know that they are not as pleasant as a three season tent to spend time in outside of a very cold night, or storm. This is because they don't breath nearly as much as lighter tents. This tent is no exception. As you know personal hygiene is lower in the backcountry than in the city and two to three people spending time in a small space that doesn't breath very much can lead to a stinky environment.
Tent is a good size for two and more generous in size as a three man tent than most. Poles are very beefy.
Great extra room at both ends of the tent under the rainfly. Great wind profile. A serious tent that is well made.
Reviewed by Milhouse the camper from Colorado on Thursday, October 13, 2016After reading other reviews about this tent being "a nightmare to assemble" i almost regreted buying it. However, after setting it up completely in my living twice, in less that ten minutes both times, I would not consider the Assembly as a drawback. I have not used in cold weather yet, but it was very warm in my backyard.
Reviewed by Shelley from NEVADA on Saturday, June 18, 2016We had this delivered to the store. With two people, inside the store it took about 30 to 40 minutes to put it up. Because of the sleeves for the poles it takes way longer to set up. Great design otherwise. Can see this being difficult to put up in a breeze let alone a wind. Ferrino does state in the instructions (difficult to decifer) to assembly in a covered area if it is windy
Reviewed by Anonymous from Nevada on Thursday, June 16, 2016Just received my Ferrino Snowbound 3 tent today. It has four poles that must be inserted thru sleeves (nightmare) .they need poll clamps like on most good tent (not this tent)so close to having a great tent but Ferrino messed up big time.Wake up look at the waisted time with sleeves . TOOK A LONG TIME TO ASSEMBLE. ONE STAR IS TO MUCH. And takes two people to assemble.
