  1. Love this Tent

    My bf and I love this Tent. There is enough space for the two of us with room to spare for the gear. We have taken this Tent backpacking and car camping. It's superlight and easy to assemble. on Aug 29th 2018

  2. Windows fell out

    Great tent and I love everything about it but the windows fell out.... looking into warranty now. on Jul 26th 2018

  3. windows fell out of the rain fly

    This tent is great! I agree with the others that say it could be longer I'm 6'4". My wife and I love the tent and the star gazing option with the fly. However After 2 years and about 15-20 uses the windows on the fly have delaminated. We used gorilla tape as a fix for now but very supprised that that happened. Anyone else have this problem??? This would easily be a 5 star tent if it were not for the rain fly problem.

  4. Needs to be Longer!

    This tent is absolutely great with the ease of setup, ventilation, epic views, and great vestibules on each side of the tent!
    However it's not built for us tall folk. I'm a tall dude and when I lay down on my Neo Xlite sleeping pad i'm touching both head and toes... Definitely not ideal...
    Make the tent longer or at least offer an option of "Long" like sleeping bags and sleeping pads! Make it longer and i'll buy this tent again!
    I would have given 5 stars if it was longer.

  5. Excellent weekenders get away or back packing tent for two

    First thing I did was add silicone treatment to the rain fly. I set this tent up in Alaska during early to mid august for 5 days. My wife and I had plenty of room. This is a big tent for single person but not too big. Like a palace for one person but comfortable with two.

    The floor tub liner could come up a little to help keep water from heavy rain from splashing...rained for 3 days. But the rain fly could also be tied out and up to make more of a eve away from the tent.

    All in all I loved the dual vestuble. I did check out the free standing feature when I took the tent down I just unhooked the bug netting and floor from everything. Would be nice in a warm climate time of year.

    If you buy this tent, just set it up first and I would make sure the fly beads water, if what I did and seam seal it and then spray the entire tent with silicone spray. Let set up for 8 to 12 hours warm weather with mild breeze will get it dry faster.

    I will be taking the wife out in this tent this spring and likely my oldest daughter so I'm sure they will hope the water sealing holds up.

  6. A good tent

    Overall, it's a good tent. Sets up and tears down easily. We stayed dry when it rained. My only issue was the amount of condensation on the inside after a night with the rain fly closed. Seems like a vent near the top could fix that easily though. If you're looking for a good tent though, the tn3 is a good choice. on Aug 14th 2017

  7. THE tent solution for bikepacking!

    Apart from the obvious name check and resulting high quality you get with this tent, there is one critically important spec with this tent that no other major manufacturer has appeared to crack. That spec is the 14" packed tent pole.

    A friend of mine and I took up a 200 mile trek by bike. Part of the experience was camping while on the journey. Space and weight were the major considerations, of course. While other tents may have been lighter, the tent poles never fell below 16". The TN3 had us covered and it was easily packed away in the frame bag.

    In all, the TN3 slept the two of us with only enough space for our gear in the tent. I'm a slighter guy than my buddy, and the two of us didn't have much extra space once our backpacks and drybags were inside. Sleeping three people in this tent might be a bit of stretch, depending on your build.

  8. Needs to be Longer...

    I'm with the other reviewers on this one... this tent is Awesome, yes... but for a tall person like myself.. well, that's where it gets a little less awesome. Laying down flat I'm touching both walls, which is kind of annoying. So if you're going to make one thing Awesome this year.. please make it longer, that is all. Other than that.. great tent.. seriously!! on Jan 22nd 2017

  9. Great tent... for one person

    Tent capacities are always kind of a joke and this definitely the case here. I absolutely love this tent but just for 1 person. I'm 6' tall, 210 lbs and there is plenty of room for me and my gear. No gear, maybe a small second person max.

    Tent goes up in a snap. Folds relatively easily and has decent head room for a trail tent.

  10. Make it LONGER!!!

    Great for small people.. not as great for tall people!! I get that you're trying to shave weight and all, but I would gladly haul some extra ounces if it gave me another 6-7" of headroom. So... 2017... you know what to do. Thanks!! on Jun 9th 2016
