Description

Lightest in class without sacrificing strength.

The Easton Mountain Products Kinetic Carbon 3 Ultralight Tent features best-in-class space-to-weight ratio of any three-person, three-season tent. It tips the scales at just under four pounds, (the same weight as many lightweight two-person tents), making it ideal for ultra-light backpacking trips with two of your favorite pals. The secret to the tent's weight savings is the use of Carbon Ion poles. These poles are 48% lighter than standard aluminum poles while offering an optimal blend of strength and flex.

The tent's full mesh body maximizes ventilation in muggy conditions and guards against pesky mosquitoes during peak summer months when bugs are prevalent. In addition, the tent features a vestibule outside its single door for storing gear and footwear under the cover of the included rain fly. Multiple pockets and accessory loops provide functionality for storing and hanging camping gear and accessories.

The included rain fly easily attaches to the tent body with quick-attach hook-and-loop tabs, ensuring protection against spontaneous storms. A waterproof bathtub floor and fully taped seams block outside water from soaking through from below. High-strength aluminum stakes and five guy lines secure this tent in howling winds and serious storms.

Best tent ive ever owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I cannot agree with the below review. I have had nothing but amazing experiences with this tent. It is classified as an ultra light tent, so you are not getting heavy weight zippers etc. BUY THE FOOTPRINT. Don't use a tarp. You just spent $$$$$$ to be light, whats an extra $$ to have the right print, that actually fits excellently.

Its the lightest in its class and that speaks for itself. I would classify this as a jumbo two person as my dog and one other can sleep quite comfortably in it, along with some extra gear. I also think three women could comfortably share it. But three average sized men would be getting quite close. The vestibule space is enough to place boots in. However, even with the footprint, it is on bare ground (which doesn't bother me). My only complaint is that the tent takes a bunch of stakes to secure. The tent, however, can be set up and is rigid with only the poles in place.

Everything on this tent is color coded making it a breeze to setup. The rainfly is not an exception, as it is color coded as well.

Addressing the zippers.... yes they are lightweight, however I would not consider them cheap. The material of the rainfly is waxed, which I love, and you must guide your fingers along with the zipper so that it does not snag. Just like the lightweight zippers in Northface sleeping bags. I do not sense a weakness in the poles yet, but I would definitely suggest putting the poles in in the correct order as they support each other and tie in to share stress.

Worst Tent Ever.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this tent for a month-long field excursion in Alaska. I tested it once prior to the trip and things went fine; it just took a while to set up.
I got to AK and within a week one of the zippers on the tent stopped working. Shortly after the one on the rainfly stopped working. I was willing to deal with these things because it kept me dry and was roomy inside.
On the second to last day of my trip, one of the carbon poles snapped and poked a hole in the rainfly. Whomp. Then the seams inside on the netting part of the tent were coming undone because the tent wasn't supported well anymore. Basically, this tent fell apart in the field. It was light, though.
