Show Description

Our most popular three-season tent is now easier than ever to use. It’s still got the classic three pole design, with that great balance of lightness, stability, and headroom. This version has cam cleat tensioners to adjust the guy lines without tedious pulling-and-threading of traditional tighteners. A new cinch-down style stuff stack makes packing the tent up so simple and fast, you’ll be able to do it before your second cup of coffee is brewed.

  • Cosy for three people or spacious for two.
  • Pull-out vestibule for storage or stripping off wet raingear.
  • Mesh sidewalls and high vent help to keep condensation down in cooler weather.
  • Poles attach with clips for lightness, fast set-up and air circulation.
  • Can be set up without the fly in dry weather, as a bug tent.
