Show Description

We know what you’re thinking. An ultralight 3-person backpacking tent at an amazing price – what’s the catch? The C Bar 3 Tent is truly an amazing option for backpackers looking for great value and impressively light weight. A single door and vestibule keeps the whole package just barely over 2kg. Burly fabric provides durability, meaning you'll get season after season of use. The colour-coded pole system makes this tent a breeze to set up, too, freeing up more of your time to kick back and relax wherever you choose to pitch it.

  • Fly and floor are made of polyester taffeta with a 1500mm waterproof PU coating.
  • Taped seams and a storm flap on the vestibule zipper keep rain out.
  • Single door and vestibule saves weight.
  • Quick-stash door keeper makes it easy to stow the unzipped interior door.
  • DAC Pressfit pole system with ligthweight angled hubs and attached cross pole creates more interior space.
  • Colour-coded poles simplify setup.
  • Velcro tabs attach the fly to the poles for a taut pitch.
  • Pre-attached reflective guylines make the tent ready to pitch, right out of the bag.
  • Includes 8 lightweight aluminum hook stakes.
  • 3 interior mesh pockets and an oversized ceiling pocket stow headlamps and phones.
  • Interior loops let you attach a gear loft (sold separately). Compatible with the Big Agnes Triangle, Trapezoid and Square Gear Lofts.)
