Description

Tested in the world’s harshest environments.

Mountain Hardwear teamed up with world-class mountaineer Ed Viesturs to make the EV 3 Tent tough and light enough for life in the high mountains. This single-wall design shaves several pounds off the weight of similar double-wall tents. After all, it’s hard enough to walk at 8000 meters.
  • Conduit FR fly provides weather protection and fights internal condensation

  • External pole clips let you pitch this tent without having to open a door
  • Atlas Scandium poles save weight while increasing strength
  • SVX windows let you check the weather without opening a zipper

High Alpine only

I invested in what I assumed was the best all around 4 season tent when I puchased the EV 3 for a once in a lifetime trip to Patagonia. As you know, the region of Patagonia can deliver any type of the 4 seasons at anytime. In the wind the EV 3 did great. In the snow, fantastic. In cool to warm temps I loved my EV 3. But, in the rain I slept in a pool of water every night. When I contacted Mountain Hardwear upon arrival home, they said the MH EV 3 was solely made for high alpine pursuits and I should have purchased a different tent. So the advertisement from MH should be for a One season tent and that season is winter.

I hope this helps!

family tent? :)

I got this tent 50% off from steep and cheap.

It did great in 50 mph winds at Capitol Reef National Park over memorial day weekend, even though, I hadn't cinched down the poles good. It had some flap to it before that, but once it was completely guyed out and tightened it was rock solid. Even without being nice and tight, it was never close to blowing away or folding. So be sure you tighten the webbing where the poles attach as this makes the tent taut-er.
It does also have some tie downs on the inside of the roof that you can use to make it even tighter. I haven't tried those yet.

It fits our family of 3 nicely head to head, but if somebody goes head to toe, we have tons of room. We fit all our packs at the foot and still had a little room in the vestibule. If we ever get that 4th kid, it will probably still function until our 2 are bigger.

Temperature was 25 degrees with 2-3 inches of snow at Great Basin, it did get some condensation. But if you carry a little broom head you can brush it out of the trap door in the vestibule.

Gear storage pockets are small, but really well placed. The triangles are just big enough to hold a headlamp and glasses and keep them out of the way.

I love the colors, but the transparent fabric, does make it harder to sleep in. I think this is to make it more cheery if you are snowed in all day waiting to summit or something.

The tent bag it came with is soooo tight to try and stuff it back into, I bought a bigger one with some compression straps to make putting it away easier.

At 7 pounds this is a pretty heavy tent to take with you to the rain. Where this tent thrives is in the snow. Extremely durable. Have had it continually stand up to brutal winds and tons of snow . Still one of the best options out there. Sleeps three Head to Toe to Head pretty comfortably with enough room for minimal gear at one end or all of it if you really need to.

How does the single layer hold up to intense rain?

never slept in it, but played in it. i would not worry about the rain too much. i would worry about more than a couple of feet of snow up on one side, seemed like there was more flex in the poles than i would like.

Evan. It is a completely waterproof tent. Imagine a waterproof/breathable rain jacket... we use the same fabric in the body of this tent. Cheers!

The only real issue you should get will be condensation from you on the inside if it is completely closed up, so it may seem that the tent is leaking, but it is actually you that is leaking

In rain you will find that its completely waterproof. The only thing that you will notice though is that it doesn't breathe as well as a double walled tent. The vents will open up to let condensation out but you will still notice that there will be quite a bit of condensation in the mornings - especially with temps in the 40's.

Hope this helps!

I will have to disagree with the above posts. I invested in what I assumed was the best all around 4 season tent when I puchased the EV 3 for a once in a lifetime trip to Patagonia.

Read the reviews on the EV2 cause they will all apply to this tent as well.

Only difference would be the size and weight, of course. I have used this tent on several snow camping trips in dec jan and feb, along with high altitude at 10,000+ a few times. Every time it has done a great job with minimal condensation. If there is condensation it is in the form of frost and is easy to brush off of everything in the morning. The zipper on the floor at the head of the tent makes it really easy to get snow for melting and and get the frost out in the morning. Just throw everything to one side and brush all the frost to a pile and out it goes.
