3 person tent recommendation.

Recommended Posts

I am looking to purchase a 3 person tent for my wife and I to camp in rocky mountain national park. I sold my 6 person because it wasway too big and I froze last summer. Need help! New or used I am looking for something under $250. Thanks!

Backpacking or car camping?

Keep an eye on www.steepandcheap.com for some killer deals.

This is a great recommendation. Anything SteepandCheap is selling from Big Agnes, Kelty, North Face that fits your size and budget requirements is worth buying.

 

ETA: I'd be much more inclined to buy last year's model at a hefty discount than to buy a used tent. You just don't know how well it's been looked after, how the waterproofing has been maintained, etc.

It doesn't have to be a big obvious hole to make a big negative impact on your trip. If course, I'm a bit biased. Seems like I get rained on hard pretty much every time I pitch a tent. 😂

In terms of features, rain fly, footprint, and two side entrances (ideally with vestibules) instead of one on the end, and a little gear loft are things I look for.

If you are backpacking I would suggest the hike and byke Zion.  It is a 2 person but larger than most I've seen. Easily big enough for 2 people and gear.

I bought a REI Half Dome 2+ for my first elk backpacking trip almost 3 years ago. They still make the same one. It's 5.5-6 lbs and about $250. Was under $200 when I bought it. I'm sure you can find great info in this article.
