Function and durability are great features, and sometimes get lost in the array of easily sold numbers like weight and square footage. The LightWedge 3 by Mountain Hardwear isn't the lightest tent with highest weight to square footage ratio. It is light enough for backpacking, has long term durability, and simple enough you won't need a degree in engineering to set it up. Isn't that what you really want out of a tent?
Not every situation requires lightest, strongest, and smallest tent. Sometimes you just need a reliable, durable, and simple piece of equipment, which is where the LightWedge 3 by Mountain Hardwear fits in. Designed for three people, the classic wedge design is roomy and sturdy, with a single door at the wide end for convenience. Three vents in the canopy keep condensation to a minimum, and the window in the fly door allows you to view the outside conditions. Easy set-up details include color coded pole loops, and reflective guy-out loops, and starter points for simple night time set-up. Mountain Hardwear builds tents to scale Everest and survive the Antarctic. So when they turn their sights to building a roomy three person backpacking tent, you can be assured that years of on-the-edge R&D will create a functional, durable tent that works trip after trip.
