3-Person Tent Reviews

Deal of the Week: MSR Carbon Reflex 3 Tent

Save on an ultralight, spacious shelter.

As Backpacker‘s gear editor, I test a lot of different tents during hiking season. But on the rare trip where I’m using my own gear? I’m probably sleeping in the Carbon Reflex 3. This tent is so light and spacious—just over 2.5 pounds and with a 38.5-square-foot floor—that I routinely use it as a two-person shelter so that both sleepers have more than enough room to spread out. The all-mesh canopy prevents condensation on all but the coldest shoulder-season nights, while a low profile helps in windy conditions. And while the Carbon Reflex is certainly expensive, Moosejaw currently has it on sale for 25 percent off ($450). Grab it while you can, and enjoy the extra space.
