Three is a party.
- Waterproof breathable tent fabric fends off the elements without leaving you feeling stifled by condensation inside
- Bathtub-style floor provides extra side coverage and allows for cutouts in the fly to reduce weight
- Two large side-entry doors make exits and entrances easier, and the additional vestibule coverage provides more protection from the rain
- Pole hubs at the front and rear of the tent eliminate the number of necessary poles, thus lowering weight without affecting structural stability
- Dry-bag style stuff sack, lightweight inner storage pocket, stakes, and repair kit are all included

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I used this tent in the Cloud Peak Wilderness in early June 2013. Three of us slept snugly in the tent, but found there was just enough room for 3 sleeping pads as well. The first night we set up the tent in a torrential downpour! It rained the entire night, but the fly did an excellent job keeping us dry. Only noticeable frustration was that strong gusts of wind would blow a little moisture in from under the vestibule sides (30+ gusts).
The second night we observed sustained winds of nearly 60 mph. The entire tent flexed several inches during each sustained gust, but I was more concerned about deadfall than the tent failing. The gusts were so strong that night that it bent the aluminum stakes holding our guy wires by roughly 45 degrees.
The reminder of the trip was quite nice. Cold nights did cause some perspiration to bead up on the interior of the rain fly, but dried out quickly when the suns rays reached through the canopy or the fly was opened. The pack bag takes some practice in order to correctly refold the tent and fly for long storage, but i found the compression straps fairly effective when properly stowed. Considering the elements and conditions of this recent hike, this tent exceeded my expectations and performed very well.
Great Quality Tent All the right Stuff
There were no reviews and no video's on this tent but all of the specs lead me to the Nemo Obi 3 direction. Just got it yesterday and set it up in the basement. Quality product!
Substantial flooring and rain fly combined with a truely self standing light weight tent with plenty of room inside and 2 huge vestibules confirms my decision to have aquired this tent. Even without being staked this tent was solid and taught. The Jakes Foot setup allows you to attach the foot print, poles and rain fly easily to each corner point. Plenty of pockets inside for your goodies with tons of headroom. The material is just plain quality combined with being light weight and having a small pack size makes this 3 person/comfortably 2 person tent a solid choice.
Have not spent a single night in the elements with this tent yet but everything I see so far leads me to believe I made the right choice!
Not usually one to write a review but given the fact that no one has reviewed this tent I felt sharing my initial impressions was a must! Worth every penny!
