Single-wall cabin for three.

Three may be a crowd to some people, but to you and your co-hikers, three is the ideal number for an extended backpacking trip. And after carrying this lightweight single-wall tent for a few days, you and your buddies will realize The North Face Phoenix 3 Tent's advantages. Unlike heavier double-wall tents that feature a separate tent body and fly, this single-wall wonder is built with a waterproof breathable DryWall canopy to shed wet weather, fight condensation, and save you extra weight.
  • DryWall waterproof breathable tent fabric is lighter and has a higher tear strength than a standard PU tent fly
  • DryWall fabric provides improved breathability (869 g/m2) over other single-wall tent fabrics so that condensation doesn’t ruin your trip
  • Reverse Combi poles use a different diameter of metal in strategic areas to maximize tent-wall tension and usable floor space
  • Poles made with DAC's Green Anodizing process, which eliminates the chemical polishing stage, reduces the need for hazardous chemicals, and recycles water throughout the rinsing process
  • Light and simple twist clips are easy to use and conserve weight
  • Ball cap connector eliminates the grommet and tip at the end of the ridge poles for quicker setup
  • Built-in vestibules let you keep your smelly and dirty boots out of the tent
  • Internal loops ideal for hanging headlamps and accessories
  • Footprint sold separately

Liked, but . . .

Simple design and quick setup were to like. Lack of ability to keep out the rain sent it home.

Good Overall

This tent is easy and quick to set up. The single wall design is a new thing for me, but it seems to work pretty well. There was condensation on the vestibule flaps, but not on the inside of the tent. Bought this tent for backpacking with one more person, wanted some extra room with the light weight. Can almost kneel straight up in the middle of the tent to change clothes and whatever else. One of the only problems I have with this tent is the flaps for the vestibule, they don't get too tight and close to the ground. On a windy day in Moab there was quite a bit of sand getting into the tent. I know this is a problem with any tent in Moab on a windy day, but other tents I have had stay tighter to the ground, blocking out a little more dust and sand.

i just took this tent for a three week trip to the arctic, camping in from the tundra to the glacier. it is such an amazing update of single wall. super light. easy to set up. breathable. plenty of room for three people. this is my new new go to tent.

Light and fast

So we haven't really put this tent to the test yet, but for a 3-person tent it is definitely lighter and faster to pitch than any other I have had. Setup was dead simple without instructions, and the single-wall construction means it takes you literally half the time to pitch as a tent with a fly. Kept me and my gf warm in Moab on a sub-35-degree night, although I'm not sure I'd want to go much colder.
