What is the lightest 3-person tent for efficient hiking?

If you're looking for an ultra-light trekking tent, don't hesitate to check out MSR. With products like the MSR Gear Freelite 3 tent, you can find a tent for 3 people weighing only 1.2 kg. Obviously, to pull off such a feat, the brand has optimized the quantities and thicknesses of fabric. Therefore, it is indeed a minimalist tent designed for covering miles without overburdening yourself, and not for providing comfort worthy of a 4-star accommodation or ultimate waterproofness. This type of ultra-light 3-person tent is intended for use in 3 seasons, of course.

A trekking tent with a vestibule to protect your hiking gear

Sleeping sheltered is good, but having a bit of space to protect your gear and your hiking backpack is even better. For this, you should not hesitate to choose a 3-person tent with one or two vestibules, also called apsis. These vestibles are simply extensions of the upper waterproof fabric. They allow you to keep your backpack and hiking boots dry without cluttering the living space. 3-person hiking tents with apsis also enable you to dry clothes overnight protected from dew.

Which shape to choose for your 3-person tent: tunnel or dome?

This is a question that often comes up: should you choose a 3-person dome tent or a 3-person tunnel tent? It depends on how you plan to use it.

  • A dome tent or igloo tent has the advantage of being freestanding thanks to its crossed poles and is very easy to set up, even at night. Once pitched, it can be moved easily, and it's not necessary to anchor it to the ground if there's no wind. This can be useful on rocky areas where you cannot plant any pegs. 3-person dome-shaped tents also offer a spacious living area, which is appreciable if the weather conditions are poor for several days in a row.
  • A 3-person tunnel tent is generally lighter. However, it needs to be anchored to the ground to stay up, but once the anchoring points are set, the tunnel tent offers very good wind resistance. Setting up the rainfly can be a bit more delicate than on a dome model. Its elongated shape is more minimalist both in width and height, which will suit hikers looking for lightness above all and minimal bulk in their pack. Ideal as a trekking tent and for long-distance backpacking.

How much does a compact 3-person trekking tent cost?

The price of a 3-person tent varies greatly depending on the model's technicality and the materials used. At Glisshop, our team of experts has selected a wide range of 3-person trekking tents with prices ranging from £170 to £680. Generally, the lighter the tent's weight, the higher its price. Between the two extremes, you'll find a collection of 3-person tents that offer very good value for money with an intermediate weight that will allow you to engage in all your outdoor activities under good conditions.
