Ventilation good for summer

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought for camping and backpacking, mostly in northern Minnesota. Took it to a campground and the temps were in the 48-52 F range overnight. We were chilly with very warm sleeping bags and blankets layered on top. The tent itself is easy to set up, good quality. Stood up to a light morning rain. The vestibule design is nice for keeping shoes outside. The tent is very well ventilated, which is likely why we felt the cooler temps. Will be nice for summertime. The fine mesh keeps bugs outside. Overall a great tent!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I could not find the size for these tents anywhere online. So if anyone else is looking for the same thing. Here are the dimensions for the Trail Lite 3. H: 112cm W: 155 cm L: 224cm After a summer spent dying in an old winter tunnel tent, i am looking forward to spending this summer in the Trail Lite 3, i have not tried out outside, but i put it up to check it. And so far its the easiest tent i have ever put up. The materials feel like they are high quality and will stand the test of time. The only thing Im hesitant about is that there is no ventilation in the top of the rain cover. But i suppose you could open both of the doors slightly at the top under the lip, and get airflow through without it raining inside. Never thought i would be excited about a tent, but this one is so cool.

Simple set up!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] One of the easiest set ups for a tent I've seen! The vertical walls helps make good use of the space. The short overall height makes it look as if it will hold up to high winds. I havent been able to use it outside yet but I'm hoping it performs as well as the set up. I'll update my rating in the spring!

First look looks great

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Have only set up at home so far.... The good: am really pleased with the internal space, and the ease of set up. The not so good: Will probably be switching the pegs for those of our old tent as they are excessively heavy. Volume when packed is a bit big so will look to get a smaller stuff sack to reduce the volume when packed.

Pop it up with ease!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very spacious, well designed, and affordable 3 person tent. Pretty hyped on the construction of the tent, and how basically 90% of the tents surface is just screen when you dont have the rain fly on. The X shape design really creates this cool space when you are laying down in the tent and looking up at the sky. Makes the tent feel very roomy, yet cozy. Lots of space and storage. I use this tent for my wife, 6 month old daughter, dog, and myself. Perfect size for all of us and gear. Quality tent, built with quality materials. Would buy again.

Very comfortable and roomy 3 person tent!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just used this tent on a 6 day Selway rafting trip. The first couple of nights it rained a good bit and I stayed completely dry. The rain fly repelled water well and it headed up nicely so I was able to shake off quite a bit of water before I rolled it up. The tent is the most comfortable lightweight 3 person tent I have been in. The walls on the side of the tent go straight up so the head space is great, while the tent isn't super heavy. I wasn't a big fan of the two long poles being attached in the middle but it worked fine.
