Not only is the Ghost UL 3 Tent Mountain Hardwear's lightest three-person tent, it's also incredibly protective for backpacking in alpine environments. Mountain Hardwear's guaranteed watertight construction equips the fly and floor with fully taped seams, welded corners, and welded guy clip anchors. Even the well-ventilated mesh canopy has a welded zipper, as well as a front vestibule for a dry entrance and a safe place to store your backpacks. The DAC Featherlight NSL poles are industy-leading in terms of lightness and long-lasting durability.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This tent is compact, easy to set up, and fanatically light. Only used it once, but was super impressed with how well this tent packed away, and how comfortable it was during a windy night.
Sturdier than expected for UL tent
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bougie hiker that I am, I got this as a 2 person tent for two tall people (both over 5'10", we needed a tent to fit 2 long sleeping pads; which was more challenging than we expected). It will definitely fit 3 people if you pack yourselves in, and one of you is not 6". It's properly free standing, has a very good deep bathtub, and although I was concerned about the materials- they felt super fragile when I set this tent up at home, they held up very, very well on all sorts of terrain.
I took this tent on a 6day hiking trip in the Lofotens in Norway recently, and the tent performed nicely in the wind and rain as well as being pitched on grass, shrubs, rocks as well as on snow. We had no issues with condensation, nor water seeping through any side. For the snow and rock camping days we threw a piece of tyvek underneath, mostly for a bit of peace of mind.
I was seriously impressed with the windresistance. We saw a 4season tent get blown around wildly, and single person tarps get destroyed one night, and this tent was fine.
- wind resistance and low profile is great, but still tall enough to sit in.
- materials sturdier than expected
- awesome use of toggles to secure fly. very nice and lightweight
- waterproof even when not staked out to the max
- lightweight for size
- intelligent zippers/vestibule
- setup is easy
- truly freestanding
- seams seem well reinforced and sturdy
- no visible wear after 6 intense days usage
- can be set up as 3.5season tent
- good for tall/bigger people
- expensive (I got it with the 20% off, but otherwise would have been outside budget range)
- few reviews on line
- 3people would be tight
- one door
- feels super fragile
