An ascent of Kilimanjaro is the decathlon of tent testing: You can expect temperatures ranging from 90°F to 0°F, humidity from 0 to 90 percent, ripping wind at 17,000-foot high camp, nylon-shredding rocks at campsites, and periodic blowing dust and intense bursts of hail. If a tent has a weakness, Kili will expose it. And yet our man says the Royal Flush 3 performed like a champ, comfortably sheltering him and his companions in all conditions. “And after nine days on the mountain, the tent showed no signs of damage,” he says, “except for dust-gummed zippers.” Candle wax helped free them. He deemed the clip-on pitch “kindergarten simple.” And while the 46.5-square-foot floor and 45-inch peak are adequate for a trio of average campers—those over six feet tall will feel squished—the dual vestibules can handle all your gear, with room to spare for cooking.

Fave feature: four roof vents and two floor-level vents, which eliminate all condensation.
