This is a unique tent rental option we added in 2017. This is a larger, more comfortable model than the "normal" backpacking tents we rent - roomier and more features, at less than 1/2 the weight of our car camping options. The design of this tent allows much of the same structure to be used in a both a 3-person and 4-person configuration. This is a high quality tent that sells north of $500 at retail (don't lose it on the trail!), so it's at a pricier rent level than our base 1- and 2-person rental models. You just tell us which capacity option you want by using the drop-down box when checking out.
In 3-person mode:
3 season, 2 doors, 2 vestibules; star gazing canopy L x W x H 84x74x46 in / 213x188x117 cm 2 Vestibules 10.5 sq. ft / 0.98 sq. m each Packed weight 7 lb 6 oz / 3.3 kg Trail weight 6 lb 10 oz / 3.0 kg
In 4-person mode:
3 season, 2 doors, 2 vestibules; star gazing canopy L x W x H 94x82x55 in / 239x208x140 cm 2 Vestibules 14 sq. ft / 1.3 sq. m each Packed weight 8 lb. 3 oz / 3.7 kg Trail weight 7 lb 8 oz / 3.4 kg (4 man-mode 55” height and 14 sq.ft. x 2 vestibules are industry best!)
This is a great tent rental option for these circumstances or needs:
Star gazing the night sky while sleeping
Need full width capacity for 3 backpackers and gear
Need to house 4 backpackers and gear (4-man mode)
Several backpackers, but limited camp site space
Car camping, but want to tie up less space in the vehicle
Alternatively, consider our smaller backpacking tents or larger car car camping tents.
