Product code 5003-230

Description

Show Description

Spacious for two people and cozy for three, our most popular three-season tent has a light, compact design, with three poles providing stability and headroom. The pole clips allow greater air circulation for reduced condensation, and are colour-coded for rapid set-up. The inner tent can be set up without the fly as a bug tent on fine nights. If you would like a bit more stability in wind, consider our less spacious but lower-profile Tarn 2.

  • Pull-out vestibule for storage or stripping off wet raingear.
  • Clear polyurethane window. Please note: over time the window will become slightly amber coloured.
  • Front vent can be kept open in wet weather.
  • Reflective guypoints help you find your tent at night.
  • Sewn in Vietnam, fabric from Taiwan, frame from South Korea.
