A little larger and more reinforced than the Light Wedge 2, the Light Wedge 3 is essentially the same design with enough area for three sleeping adults and a few extra ounces of weight. That's a significant accomplishment when you consider that most three-person backpacking tents--at least the ones with worthy features and durable designs--usually weigh in at least eight pounds or more. If you're creative with your pitching approaches, it's possible to shave another 10 ounces off the official weight listed below. The Light Wedge 3 has a full-size mesh, D-shaped door and two top vents plus a rear window for 4x4 venting on muggy summer nights. The outer fly has a non-yellowing window made from UV-resistant and tear proof UVX film, a proprietary clear material that's been tested at 27,000 feet and resists clouding like PVC or plastic film. It even stays flexible all the way down to -66 F, not that we're saying that you should use this durable, three-season tent in -66F, but if you did, you would have a clear perspective on your predicament. The aluminum brow pole over the vestibule adds strength while increasing headroom above the door. Large pockets along the walls and suspended webbing loops help keep your gear in order.
