    Ultra Light Tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This tent can handle rain. The materials are sturdier than they appear. The ventilation is good -- Too good. While camping out during the winter, the inside of the tent felt the exact same temperature as the outside. It was down-right breezy. The ventilation is set up to work well. That is great in the summer time, but for the winter, I wish it had been a little less effective. Next time, I will tie the sides down a bit more and see if this makes a difference.

    This tent was first trialed in the backyard on grass. It has been on local camping trips and then used for two section hike of the AT. We have used a polycryl or tyvek footprint with it. In very humid weather, there was some condensation on the inside, but not much.

    Perfect 10

      I am 193cm tall and needed a tent for my big dog (slovensky cuvac) and myself.
      Reviewed more than 50tents and tried out 12.
      Too small or too heavy for fast hikes in the alps was the results.
      The ghost 3 ul is the one and only forfilling my demands.
      Used it for 3trips this year for more than 10 nights.
      Snow, rain, thunder, no problem.

      Light as a Feather

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Full disclosure: These tents are considered “ultra-lightweight”. They will give up the “comfort” features most people are used to and are designed for a specific need; going light and fast. Comparatively, this tent does forgo some areas of durability and comfort in order to hit such low weight ranges. This tent can still handle a good storm, but it is more prone to tears, etc if you are not used to this style tent. For what it is, I absolutely love this tent and would recommend it; given this is what you are looking for. It is quick and easy to set up, and ridiculously light.
      Feel free to reach directly out with any questions about the tent or anything else!

      Amazingly Light

      • 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

      Sturdier than expected for UL tent
